Adventurer Rental vehicles are not fitted with a tow-bar.
Adventurer Rental vans have retractable awnings.
We do have bike racks for hire.
No, we currently do not hire out this item, but New Zealand is very well suited for campers and free public facilities are available all over the country. If you specifically require one of these items our staff will point you to a local camping supply store where they can be purchased.
Adventurer Rental vehicles have two batteries systems - one to run the engine and the other to operate the living equipment such as the fridge and lights. This battery will remain charged for approximately 12 to 48 hours but it all depends on a number of things you have running; use of lights, entertainment systems, gas heating (12V fan) and the number of times the fridge is opened. All our vehicles have solar panel backup, which helps restore the batteries when parked, but can’t keep up if everything is operating. If you flatten the battery you can switch on the engine where the alternator will start it again, but, you will need to plug the vehicle into 240V mains power for the battery to fully recharge. We recommend you stay in Holiday Parks to charge the battery at least every second night.
This depends on how much you minimise the power usage. The more equipment you use the quicker your batteries drain. If the weather is hot, try to keep the fridge closed as much as possible. A good tip is to keep the fridge filled by using recycled bottles filled with frozen water and turning the fridge off at night or at least turn the thermostat down. Parking the vehicle so that the fridge is on the shady side also reduces power consumption.
Yes, the inbuilt inverter will insure that all 12V functions continue uninterrupted. Since the engine battery is separate, if you flatten one of the house batteries, you will still be able to start the engine and drive.
No Adventurer Rentals do not provide hair dryers.
Adventurer Rentals do not provide irons or ironing boards. However you will find most camp grounds do have laundry facilities.
Yes; New Zealand uses different power plugs to the rest of the world. Transformer or adaptor will be needed to fit NZ three point sockets and you need to be plugged into a power source on a campsite to be able to use them.
Adventurer Rentals provide a gas fired heating system and gas hot water. If central heating, water heating and cooking are all being used then one bottle (4.5kg) may only last for 5-8 days double if your van is equipped with a 9 kg bottle; subject to use.
When a Adventurer Rental Camper is not connected to a 240v power supply, the fridge, hot water, gas heater, house lights and the entertainment will run off the 12v batteries in the vehicle.
Yes, all our Adventurer vehicles have gas heaters. All vehicles have heating in the cab which operates when you are driving.
No, there is no access for wheel chairs and limited space inside.
If you are plugged in simply use a power point in the vehicle. If you are not plugged in you can hire a 12v-240v inverter so you can recharge off the battery.
No, not available and cannot be used with our vehicles.
Adventurer Rental Campers will be able to suss you out for something a bit cheaper and older if required.
