About Cruzen Campers


We love to help you explore New Zealand!

Founded in 2018 by retired kiwi John Caldwell, our journey began when a German friend travelled across New Zealand in a campervan and had an amazing time. But her biggest stress (one that almost ruined the trip!) was whether her van would make the distance – and what to do with it once the adventure was over.

We ended up buying the van from her to resell on her behalf but soon realised that this was a problem many travellers faced, and stress no one needs when they’re planning the trip of a lifetime.

So we started mapping out a new adventure: renting and selling campervans (with a buy-back clause!) to help travellers experience the beauty of New Zealand as easily as possible.


Feel free to freedom camp!

In February 2018, things got a little tricky when new laws and regulations came into place regarding freedom camping.

But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! After looking at the different van layouts on the market, and speaking to backpackers about what they really needed in a van, we came up with our own design for fully certified, self-contained campers

Find out more about the Freedom Camping regulations here.

We’ve got vans that make it easy to legally travel, stay and explore any camping site in beautiful New Zealand at your own leisure.

Take the stress out of your New Zealand adventure, because we’ve done all the hard work for you! Find the perfect camper for your trip here.
