Motorhome Driving Tips
New Zealand law requires any persons travelling in the front seat of a motorhome, campervan or mobile home to wear seatbelts. If seatbelts are fitted in the rear please use them for your safety, seatbelts save lives!
If you are holding up traffic be courteous and move your motorhome, campervan or mobile home to the left and let the traffic pass safely.
If you feel you are getting tired pull over and take a rest or find a rest area and stay the night.
Motorhomes, campervans and mobile homes have significant windage, so take special care in exposed or windy places and when cornering.
New Zealand has a number of hills and winding mountain pass roads, which change the conditions of the roads and weather conditions quickly. Allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
Comfortable driving distances in a day are around 300kms, but less if you want to stop to look at the scenic wonders and enjoy attractions around New Zealand.
If you are travelling in rural and remote country areas around New Zealand make sure that the gas and petrol or diesel tank is full as fuel stations are more widely spread.
