Who Are The People Behind SHAREaCAMPER?

Connect explorers change lives

Our Vision

Here at SHAREaCAMPER, we believe that every traveller should have at least one campervan story to tell, and we're here to help make that happen. Our vision is to bring the joy of campervan travel to as many people as possible in an affordable, safe and easy way. The idea of combining transportation and accommodation is not a new one, but with SHAREaCAMPER it's easier and better than ever.

SHAREaCAMPER offers a platform for New Zealand campervan, motorhome and caravan owners to connect with travellers and share their under-utilised vehicles. It is an easy and secure way for recreational vehicle owners to earn an extra income from their driveway bound vehicles. For travellers, SHAREaCAMPER is a way to rent unique vehicles, get great local knowledge from vehicle owners and an affordable alternative to traditional camper hire companies.

What is your role at SAC?

I'm a web developer that tells the ShareaCamper website how to work for travellers, owners and our colleagues. I'm mainly responsible for maintaining the website and building new functions to make users have a better experience.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

A camper with comfortable bed, the ability to cook a delicious meal and solar panels would be ideal for me. The most important thing is that it can allow me to travel a long distance.

Where would you like to go?

I like the sunrise moment the most in my journey, so going to Te Mata Peak for a breathtaking sunrise is my next plan. Drinking coffee and watching the sun slowly light up hills.

Software Developer

What is your role at SAC?

As a software developer, I am working for SHAREaCAMPER from the beginning. Because of that, I touched every "technical screw" at least once and rotated them at least twice. I am responsible for the implementation of new features on our platform and the maintenance and repair of the software-technical infrastructure.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

As a technology-minded person, I would always prefer a camper, with any technical refinement. Preferably with Wifi and satellite TV. It would be great if it would drive autonomously and purely electric *dream*.

Where would you like to go?

I love the mountains and skiing. Therefore, I would always visit the ski resorts in southern Germany or Austria with a camper. You will always be very flexible to visit different ski resorts.

Accountant

What is your role at SAC?

I am the number cruncher at SHAREaCAMPER looking after all finance related topics. This gives me exposure to most parts of our business, which is super exciting.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

I could see my family and myself cruising around in a well maintained, classic camper with a lot of attention to detail. Only requirement: it has to be self-contained so that I can stop anywhere in the wilderness to enjoy the views and a cuppa or glass of wine. And it surely needs enough space to carry a decent barbeque and my surf gear.

Where would you like to go?

I am a very passionate camper and have already explored a lot of places around the world. Nevertheless I would love to get out and travel around Tasmania as well as wintercamping on New Zealand's stunning South Island.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

My ideal camper is small, maneuverable and unlikely to hit a bridge. A cat door would be the perfect addition.

Where would you like to go?

The Schwarzwaldhochstrasse, in the Black Forest.... again and again and again.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

I currently own a caravan and love the idea of travelling and working in a cosy mobile home. My ideal camper would be a mid-size motorhome with toilet and shower, it is best suited for touring NZ.

Where would you like to go?

Sales Manager in NZ

What is your role at SAC?

I'm responsible for bringing on camper owners and helping non-camper owners who are interested in buying as an investment for rental purposes through SAC. I'm continually offering support and building relationships with our owners and partners as they are what makes SHAREaCAMPER so successful. As part of my role I implement sales and marketing campaigns to target more growth within the company.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

My Ideal camper would be a modern Fiat Ducato 4 berth Motorhome which I've been lucky to have the opportunity to drive recently from Christchurch to Auckland taking in the breath-taking scenery along the way. I love a bit of space plus a shower and toilet to make a long journey comfortable.

Where would you like to go?

I am a bit of a water baby so anywhere near the water you'll find me. I would say Central Otago would be my favourite place to explore, Queenstown, Wanaka is just beautiful. 2nd on the list would be Nelson and the Marlborough Sounds.

Customer Service

What is your role at SAC?

I am part of the Customer Service Team working at SHAREaCAMPER. Since I first started the role I have fallen in love with the feeling you get after successfully helping a traveller or vehicle owner, so please do not hesitate to give us a call about any queries or problems you are experiencing. Whenever I am on the phone with a customer I always keep in mind that my aim is to provide the best and most satisfying experience.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

At the moment I am obsessed with the tiny houses, which all must have really smart and initiative storage and design to compensate for the lack of room. Consequently, I would really like my campervan to have lots of concealed storage spaces, and ingenious designs (like pull out TVs, and movable beds). It would also have to be self-contained with a small toilet and shower, to wash the saltwater off yourself when you go for a swim. Finally, it would be great if the camper was eco friendly so I wouldn’t have to spend so much on gas, and I could feel good about helping the environment.

Where would you like to go?

Swimming is my favorite thing to do on holiday, so I would probably head to the North Island of NZ with the best beaches, like the Bay of Plenty, or the Bay of Islands. I would also love to visit Russel, where New Zealand’s best ice cream shop is located as well as having lots of history being New Zealand’s first capital city.

What is your role at SAC?

I am part of the customer service team at SHAREaCAMPER. I enjoy talking with and assisting customers with inquiries, bookings and hearing about their holiday plans.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

My ideal camper would be a VW Westfalia. It inspires memories of my husband and I travelling through the USA for six months in one, back in the 90’s. It wasn’t luxurious but it had everything we needed at the time, and sparked our sense of freedom and adventure.

Where would you like to go?

I have travelled extensively within New Zealand, but there is still so much to see here. We are spoilt for choice in New Zealand and I would love to keep exploring this spectacular country. On my bucket list are a few of the Great Walks.

Stefanie Bender

Managing Director

What is your role at SAC?

I am the Managing Director of SHAREaCAMPER New Zealand, enjoying the possibility to work in the camping business together with such a great, global team. My job, besides making sure that you get the best service possible, is to ensure that SHAREaCAMPER grows and prospers to enable more and more campervan owners and travellers to share their passion about camping.

What is your ideal camper and what do you need in or on it?

I like campervans with an individual touch to them and really smart storage and usage of space. The camper should be mid-size, wouldn't mind a bit older model and definately robust. A 4WD would be a nice feature. It definately needs to be self contained with it's own small bathroom (including toilet & shower). A spacious cooking area is a must and a pull out couch-bed was a great feature in one of the campers we previously owned. We just sold our VW LT year 1989 but will most likely be looking for a new campervan again soon.

Where would you like to go?

Travelled through New Zealand with our Leyland DAF for 15 months and would love to visit some of the places again... and also discover some new ones. For scuba diving I am looking forward to explore Micronesia a bit more.
