Sophie's Camper

In Christchurch, Canterbury Region, New Zealand


Nellie was bought converted into a campervan for mountain biking missions. Since then we've adapted the interior to make it more suitable for longer stays and more comfortable living.

The couch is a perfect spot to sit and look out at some stunning views around New Zealand.
The bed can be a single bed or pulled out to be a double bed comfortably sleeping two. A single duvet and/or double duvet available plus pillows, plus queen heavy blanket and hot water bottle.

Black out thermal curtains surrounding inside cabin blocking out any light and keeping it cosy and warm. There is insulation underneath the wooden flooring plus carpet for under foot alongside the couch. Towels and flannel included.
Mini kitchen is equipped with a gas cooker, pots and pans, cutlery, plates (as seen in photos). Covered area for preparing food, able to cook in or outside (please have all doors open when using the gas stove). A wine picnic table is a sweet little extra to celebrate soaking in some beautiful scenes with some delicious New Zealand wine.
The are two bench top areas as pictured. One cupboard unit is able to be removed from the van to double as a dining table accompanied by the two comfy Kathmandu camping chairs.

There is running water and a sink. A solar warmed camping shower comes with.
Nellie has lots of storage space underneath the seats/bed with three easy to access 60L containers.
A portable 12L chemical toilet is stored underneath a purpose built cupboard so as not visible.
Smooth to drive, with 3 seats in the front and a Bluetooth/USB UE boom.
Certified self-contained. Fresh Water Tank 25L and Grey Water Tank 25L.
A hammock can be included. Two head-torches are also available to assist in exploring at night.

I am a member of New Zealand Motorhome Association (NZMCA) which allows you to experience some of New Zealand’s most unique and untouched spectacular scenarios including NZ Doc Campsites, all on a limited backpacker’s budget. Because this campervan is certified self-contained and fully equipped, you can legally stay in areas with no facilities and still have a great time. The NZMCA directory is a great guide to reference when planning your adventures.
