spring has sprung

As you’ll read, the Rock and I are in Kaikoura as we finalise this issue. The weather is just gorgeous – sunny and warm during the day, stunning snowcapped mountains behind us and rolling surf beach below. But with the huge pressure getting this massive issue to the printers, our artist Cam having a meltdown, and me being so late with reviews and this editorial, we haven’t had much fun out in the RV – ‘having a life’ as we recommend all our readers do! Seriously it has been a busy month, and the rest of this year is already scheduled to race by at the same pace. We’re also busy planning our trip to the Hamilton NZMCA Motorhome, Caravan & Leisure Show later this month, thinking about prizes and packing…

house and dog sitting – this is the rv lifestyle

Today it is a beautiful sunny day and I am sitting in my camp chair looking out over the Southern Alps behind Kaikoura – whoa, it is just so lovely here. We are house and dog sitting for our friends Dave and Lynn at SurfWatch accommodation because they needed a holiday. We have offered to do this for 14 years and finally we got the call, mainly because Caspar gets on so well with their older dog Leila. On our first morning I got up early to write but was too distracted outside with the camera – I couldn’t work out if I should be looking out the front at the sunrise, or out the back at the moon and the pink clouds over the snow-capped mountains – so hard…

how to buy an rv

Buying a motorhome or campervan – where to start? If you’re reading this article the chances are you are thinking about buying a motorhome or ‘RV’ (recreational vehicle). And as it’s probably the second most expensive purchase you’re going to make in your life after buying a house, it’s not a decision you should take lightly so some homework is in order. So where do you start? Having spent nearly 20 years in the RV industry I’ve probably been asked a million questions so here’s a little advice from me to start your RV buying journey. I think one of the fundamental questions everyone should ask themselves when looking to buy an RV is: what do you want to do in your new pride and joy? If you’re still working you might…

a great ride – coming around the mountains

Can there be a better start to a trail than farewelling the ‘Adventure Capital of the World’ and plying across a pristine lake on a 100-year-old steamship, with a backdrop of the most remarkable mountains? Well if there is, I want to find it! Leaving Queenstown (or should that be ‘Queenopolis’ given the recent population explosion?), you leave the bustle of business for simpler shores. The trip on the TSS Earnslaw is like the briefest of ocean journeys spiriting you away to a whole new land; and once you leave the steamship’s dark coal-smoke clouds behind, a fresh new journey begins. I have guided many cycle groups on this trail and have noticed how riders hop off the boat, full of anticipation of what lies ‘around the mountains’, fizzing in their…
