Ruru the BaseJumper

In Auckland, Auckland Region, New Zealand


Welcome to our very comfortable self-contained 2-berth campervan with shower / toilet. Ruru is named after the Maori name for the morpork - NZ's native owl.

**Pick-up from Auckland or Hamilton available**
Whilst Ruru lives in beautiful Raglan, we realise this isn't where most people start / end their NZ holiday! To make your life easier, we are happy to come and collect you from Auckland (airport or CBD) or Hamilton (airport or CBD) and bring you to Raglan to collect your camper. At the end of your roadtrip, we'll give you a lift back too. If you're flying in from overseas, this means that you don't have to pick up your campervan and drive straight after a longhaul flight. The drive to Raglan takes 2 hours, is scenic, and you can pick our brains about places to visit in NZ (we have some great tips). Price is $75 each way for Auckland, and $40 each way for Hamilton (negotiable for long rentals).

**The comforts of home on the road**
Are you looking for a campervan that’s comfortable to drive and comfortable to live in? Then this van might be just what you’re looking for.

Ruru is thoughtfully designed, and has a high specification fit-out. The u-shaped sofa has nice thick squabs, and easily converts into a very nice double bed (we can provide bedding). The kitchen is well laid out and easy to cook in, with a 4-burner gas stove, sink, good size fridge, and quality cook-wear and crockery.

The rear doors open 180 degrees to let the beautiful views in, and we provide camp chairs if you want to relax outside. We can also provide a bike rack if you want to travel with bikes.

This van is designed for freedom camping with solar panel, 2 house batteries, diesel heating and gas hot water. There’s no need to plug in at expensive holiday parks if you don’t want to. We can give you some tips for great freedom camping spots in NZ if you want.

On the road you have a powerful 2.3L Turbo Diesel engine, 6 speed manual gearbox and cruise control. It’s a quiet, fast and efficient vehicle which easily cruises beyond 100kmh while using less than 10L/100k.

We (Anna and Niall) started the award winning PiwiWiwi Campervans in 2011 (which we sold in 2017). We know our campervans, and we know good customer service :) We are more than happy to provide travel tips from our wealth of NZ touring knowledge - just ask!

The photos that you see are from when we ran this van as a rental vehicle. It no longer has stickers on the outside, so you won't look like a tourist! We've also replaced the work-top with a wooden one.

**Minimum Rental**
We think long holidays are important (and we don't much like cleaning) so we have a minimum rental of 3 weeks.

This vehicle runs on diesel, and therefore is subject to Road User Charges from the NZ government. These are charged at $68 per 1,000km and are payable in cash when you return your van at the end of your trip.
