Compare campervans and their features

Spaceships are compact campervans based on the popular Toyota Estima (MPV) model. Compare all campervans on this page and see the features of each campervan category. Each Spaceships category has its unique features. However, there are some things that all Spaceships campervans have. That's what sets them appart from the average campervan in New Zealand.

All Spaceships campervans in New Zealand come with the following included for free:

  • Bedding & linen: from a comfy mattress to sheets, duvet and pilows. Everything for a good night's sleep is included!
  • Cooking gear: everything needed to create a yummy meal is already on board. Gas cooker, pots/pans, plates, utensils, cutlery and more. All cooking gear is included!
  • Unlimited kilometres: explore the outer space of New Zealand just the way you want to. There are no limitations. Spaceships campervans come with unlimited kilometres.
  • One-way travel included: we don't charge extra for one-way trips. Easy as. Simply book it in as a one-way trip and you'll see that there's no fee for one-way.
  • Young drivers welcome: anyone over the age of 18 with a valid driving licence can hire and drive a Spaceships campervan. No extra fees for young drivers and the same low excess. Or use our All-Inclusive insurance option to get the best campervan cover for your road trip and to reduce the excess and bond to zero dollars.
  • Add additional driver(s) for free: your road trip will be more fun and more relaxing when travelling with like-minded travellers. Whether you're travelling as a couple, family or group of friends, any one of your road trip crew can be added as an additional driver. Free of charge, of course. We don't have any hidden charges.

Advantages of Spaceships vs self-contained campervans

Spaceships campervans are not self-contained. Our campervans don’t have a shower or toilet on board. But more is needed to be certified self-contained. Campervans in the Spaceships fleet are compact campervans that come with heaps of awesome features, like all sleeping & cooking gear. Spaceships are great for freedom or budget camping at campsites with appropriate facilities. Read more about self-contained vs non-self-contained.

Our free camping app will show you where to find these campsites. Heaps of them are in remote locations or areas outside the city and towns. With a Spaceship, you can stay at heaps of beautiful campsites throughout New Zealand. The advantages of travelling in a Spaceship vs a self-contained campervan are: lower rental rates, lower excess, cheaper on the ferry, super-easy to set up and easier to drive (anyone over the age of 18 with a valid driving licence can hire and drive a Spaceship). Just a few of the many advantages of a Spaceship campervan.

In the comparison above you’ll see the differences between each vehicle in our fleet, including videos about how to use and how to set up your campervan.
