We've put our heart and soul into offering high-quality, 2-person campervans, coupled with exceptional personal service you won’t find with the big companies.
Founded by Andy (a tech entrepreneur from Devon, UK, with a penchant for campervans) and partner in all things Cindy (an Aucklander with a lust for travel), EPIC Campers was set in motion after we swapped the London rat race for Auckland in 2015 and bought a campervan to explore our new home before starting jobs.
After renting out our camper AirBnB style, and spotting the big expensive vans of the best motorhome hire companies (and mostly underwhelming offerings of the affordable ones) we decided to take things from side-business to full-time gig after Andy's role came to an end in early 2018.
We're passionate about providing the best campervan experience at the best price by innovating, working smart and using technology to keep our overheads low.
We're excited for our journey ahead and equally so for yours too in this truly epic country we're proud to call home. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have questions - we hope to meet you soon!

The van was super comfortable! Nice and clean and tidy and easy. The van contained everything we needed, and i had the best week of sleeping I've ever had in my adult life (lol).
Customer service was super, drop off/pick up was easy and accomodating. Had such a great trip and would not hesitate to book with Epic Campers again!
Exceptional service! Loved my South Island 😍😍 it was real EPIC
I was incredibly lucky to find Epic Campers as the world went into lockdown. I arrived into New Zealand on the last flight in before they closed the borders. After deciding to rent a camper and researching many companies, I found myself in a nice neighborhood in Auckland at house with several sleek looking vans parked out front.
The first thing I noticed was that Andy ran a small, but very professional business. He took all the precautions during an uncertain time and made me feel very safe.
Second, his vans were pristine, well equipped, and well designed. Over time, I kept discovering things in my van that other van travelers didn't have. I wasn't sure how long I was going to spend in NZ, but Andy worked with me every step of the way and always responded quickly to any question I had.
I ended up spending four months in "Brodie", and it became a home to me. I had zero problems with the van and fell in love with the van life. Also, three friends I met who were travelling in vans as well ended up ditching their companies to get vans from Epic Campers. They had many problems with the other companies and were extremely happy to switch to Epic Campers and work with Andy.
I've since traveled Scotland in a camper, and while it was nice as well, the big companies just don't compare to the attention to detail, responsiveness, and consideration of Epic Campers.
In fact, I loved it so much I've decided to build my own camper back home in the US. I told Andy this and he was super happy for me and offered advice on the process.
Epic Campers allowed me to explore an incredible country with zero hassles, an incredible price, and unforgettable experience. I 100% recommend them to anyone. I'll be back to NZ in the future and when I do I'll be certain to call Andy. Thanks for being a kind, safe support in an unprecedented time in the world. I'm forever grateful.
From casually requesting a quote, all the way through to confirming our booking and picking up our van, Andy (owner) was thorough and made every step of the process so easy and effortless. It was clear that Andy is dedicated to his business and that his priority is ensuring his customers have a fantastic experience. We particularly liked that the price Andy gave us was inclusive of everything you could possibly need; no added fees for linen, towels, cooking equipment, unlimited km's etc. The camper was perfect for two of us travelling around the North Island for 10 days, and we had no issues with the van or its operations along the way. When we picked up the camper it was spotless and Andy spent time making sure we were confident with how everything operated. Thanks Andy for making our first camper experience such a great one, if we don't buy a camper of our own we will be sure to be back!
If you are looking for a road trip in NZ for 2 person the best option is hire a van from Epic campers. We hired a van from Epic campers for 5 days. The van was really neat and clean. We visited Napier, Taupo and rotorua from Auckland. Drove almost 1300 k with no issues with the van.For 2 person their vans are realy well designed. (Andy )the owner was so humble and supportive. On our arrival everything was jept ready for us. I definitely gonna hire from epic campers next time.
Great company! The van was perfect for our week road trip and had everything we needed. We picked it up and it was spotless and felt almost brand new. It came with everything we needed and Andy was a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely use Epic Campers again.

We had an amazing experience with Epic Campers, Andy was really amazing, always willing to help, with this all covid thing we were not to sure if we were going to be able to travel, he was always willing to support even to refund our money in case we could not have gone to Auckland. We had Henry as a Van, best van ever, no problems at all, pretty much $80 for a full tank, very spacious in the back very well designed, in general was amazing our experience. Definitely we will travel around the South with Epic Campers soon.
Can't recommend EPIC Campers highly enough. Andy was fantastic to deal with and very accommodating. Having travelled NZ a couple of times in campers, the set up of the vans at EPIC is ingenious. Everything has a place which makes it easy to keep organised, yet van was small enough to go over the hills and park in towns without any issue. Perfect for our 2 month trip. Perfect van, perfect service. So glad we could use our money to support a small local NZ business. Infinitely better experience than the big name motorhome rental companies we have used in the part.
