Miss Whitby the 5 Legged Happy Bus
In Porirua, Porirua, Wellington Region, New Zealand
This is a lovely light filled motorhome carefully chosen for the space and comfort it offers. She sleeps 6 and can be driven on a car license.
There is a front and back lounge with seatbelts for 4 in the front lounge and seatbelts for 3 in the back lounge. The two lounge tables makes for a great option when travelling, as it is more sociable using the front lounge when driving, but it is also nice to have the option to travel at the back. Having 2 lounges also means you can also have a lounge table when two of the beds are in use.
There is a very large double bed in the luton (the bit above the driver), where we have had 3 kids sleeping at times. The luton has a lot of space to put bags and bedding during the day.
The rear lounge is a large double bed and the front lounge is a smaller double bed.
The rear lounge has a satellite TV and DVD player.
The kitchen has a microwave, small fridge/freezer, grill, 3 burner stove with rangehood, sink.
There is gas heating and gas hot water. There is also an air conditioning unit (when connected to the mains supply)
A 2KW inverter is installed which means you can use the jug, toaster, TV, microwave etc on battery power.
It is an easy walk through from the back of the camper to the cab (with no step)
Outside there is a large roll-out awning and 2 side walls so you can shelter out of the wind when required. As well as a outside ground mat to help keep the camper and camping area dry and clean.
One issue with camper life can be the lack of storage. This one has 4 outside storage lockers, inside storage under the front lounge seats and under the kitchen bench and a wall mounted unit for smaller items. We have also fitted shelves with room for 8 plastic boxes to our camper as this is very useful storage space that makes on board like easier (as in addition to more storage space that is easy to get at you can see where things are).
This is a fully self contained (a self containment certificate is required to use many freedom camping areas around the country). It is built on a van-based Volkswagen LT46 with a 2.5ltr turbo diesel engine & 5-speed manual transmission.
So you can enjoy your holiday right away it comes with an initial set of toilet chemicals, and cleaning supplies, tea towels and some food basics such as tea/coffee/milk/cooking oil/salt/pepper.
Pick up and drop off can be arranged outside the Wellington/Wairarapa area with the renter agreeing to cover the additional costs eg. Auckland $550 and Christchurch $650.
Airport/ferry terminal pickup's and drop off are negotiable.
If required we can provide a bike rack that carries 4 bikes (no charge). 6 camp chairs are also included.
She will have full fresh water tank, empty grey water, full gas bottle and full diesel tank.
NZ Diesel road user charges calculated at the end of your holiday. These are $6.60 for every 100 kilometers.
We have loved using our motorhome for family holidays and hope you will to. It really is a great way to build memories for kids and brings everyone together on holiday. We will do everything we can to ensure you have a great holiday in this vehicle. There are many wonderful free campsites around the country, some in the best of locations such as 5 mile bay in Taupo or the marina carpark at Taupo both on the lake front as well as many others. A guide book listing these campsites is provided.
We are a phone call away if you have any questions, and can usually accommodate changes to your plans if you need to stay away longer.
Many smiles and happy holiday planning
Rachel and Chris
