My wife and 10 year old son are traveling around the world starting in August 2012. We will be in NZ for the month of Oct. and are trying to decide if we should rent a campervan or a car and stay in motels. We could also do a combination of the two, maybe car on north island and campervan on south. I am hoping that someone with experience in NZ can give us some advice so we can truly experience the country. We do enjoy camping, but we will be on the go most days, therefore, it seems like too much work to have to pack up the campervan each day. We are looking at a 3 person van not a larger 4 person. I would also like advice on what to see for the 4 weeks. Thanks to all who will take the time to offer your expertise.
