The cheapest campervan in the Spaceships range is called the Rocket. Although its category name is budget campervan, the features and the vehicle are anything but budget. The price is low, and the features are as you would expect from Spaceships: all cooking and sleeping gear is included.
Features of the Rocket budget campervan
The Rocket is the only campervan in the Spaceships fleet that comes with a cool box instead of a fridge. Simply add ice to the cooler box (or Esky, Igloo or whatever it is called in your home country) to keep your food and drinks fresh. Ice bags can be purchased at petrol stations and supermarkets throughout New Zealand.
All cooking & sleeping gear is included, so need to bring that yourself. The sleeping gear consists of sheets, pillows and a duvet. And your cooking gear consists of gas cookers (2x single burner gas cookers), pan, kettle, utensils, chopping board and more. And of course, plates, forks, spoons and knives to enjoy your tasty home-cooked…. Uh, campervan-cooked meals.
The budget campervan has a backseat, therefore it has belted seating for up to 4 people. Travelling with mates is more fun and you’ll save heaps as you can split the costs of travel. Make sure to bring a tent as max 2 people can sleep inside the Rocket budget campervan.
The budget campervan with more included
The Rocket campervan comes with more items included for free. Of course, the sleeping and cooking gear but also a rear awning. The rear awning is the perfect solution for those warm New Zealand summer or Indian summer nights (December to March). The bed will be partially extended outwards and the rear awning covers it. It’s like sleeping in a tent, but you’re lying on your comfy campervan mattress.
The free Spaceships camping app and the free NZ Frenzy guidebooks will take to beautiful remote places in New Zealand. Getting off the beaten path is a piece of cake with the Rocket budget campervan.
Book the Rocket campervan without worries
From start to finish, roadtripping in the Rocket budget campervan will be worry-free. Our Promises will guarantee you a great #spaceshipsroadtrip. You can change your travel dates free of charge before the day of pick-up (subject to availability). Or you can use our free cancellation policy if your plans change completely and you can’t make it to New Zealand anymore. The Rocket is – like all Spaceships campervans – well-maintained and in excellent shape. This budget campervan is ready for your road trip. Are you ready to become a Space Traveller?
