Melu VW T5 Hightop

In Auckland, Auckland Region, New Zealand


Melu is named by my children after a book about a mule who decided to follow his dream, instead of the herd.

Our comfortable and professionally fitted out van is the perfect companion as you follow your dream, discover special places and make precious memories.

Well equipped with all you need for a weekend or a couple of weeks, Melu is ideal for 2-3 people and ready to go off grid exploring or to make the most of a little luxury at some of NZ's stunning campgrounds.
