“Unfortunately we had to return our 1st campervan due to the fact it didn't lock. Our next van the shower leaked. The toaster didn't work nearly blew up. There was no gas in the gas bottle and no water.”

“We did say already what was wrong with the van (leaks...) but It worked well. Too bad there was no sponge and only 1 tea towel for 13 days. We had a problem with the pump but It was just the switch that had being turned off with some our suitcase.”

“The Lucky Ranger rego ECZ131 was fantastic with just over 3,000 kms travelled in 21 days, up hill down dale as only NZ can give you this vehicle did not miss a beat. Both my son and I were able to sleep comfortably in the beds as two singles, this is a factor worth adding to the adverts for this type of vehicle. Two singles can be made into a double or left as the two singles.”

“The vehicle had all necessities like duvets, bedsheets and kitchen utensils. The fridge was working fine and the shower too. Although a bit squeaky but it was a smooth drive. Need to fasten the screws here and there for e.g. side mirrors, number plates etc”

“The only thing that I would say is that we had no idea how to operate anything. The person who showed us around the vehicle, didn't show us how the necessary stuff worked! like the shower and stuff...he showed us where the hoses where but that's it. We had to book in and PAY for accommodation to use showers because we could NOT GET THE one in the van to work. disappointed with this as it COST US A LOT of money”

“Not much for looks... BUT this vehicle performed perfectly! The diesel power made it easy to navigate tight vertical roads with enough top-end to cruise at 100kph when needed. All camping appliances worked as they should. The refrigerator and stove were fantastic... and how convenient for my wife to always have a working toilet! We had a fantastic month in the Lucky Ranger. ”

“The vehicle performance was poor and the overall attitude of staff was less than customer friendly. The minivan struggled up many hills, felt underpowered despite a three-litre engine but the biggest criticism was around the bedding pack provided. The sheet had a grease stain, the pillow cases had the hair of a previous user on them and the duvet was inadequate. Had we not managed to get a second hand one on our travels, we would have been constantly cold. There was no heating in the van. ”

“Vehicle was a very tired van. Overheated on hills, had bald front tyres, gas cooker did not work properly,basic supplies -spoons etc missing,pillows were disgusting. Yes this was a budget vehicle but it needed a good tidy up. Won`t use Lucky again oe recommend.”

“Comfortable and reliable, great value for money. However, one gas burner didn't work (closest to door), it would ignite but would not stay on and also there was a loud screeching noise when the air conditioner was on.”

“When we received the vehicle it had somewhat of a rank smell to it, but thought it might go away. After a couple of days of the bathroom stinking like rancid urine, we taped the entire shower and bathroom stall shut to keep the smell inside the "horror chamber". The piss wagon ran pretty well throughout the trip, but was not what we expected. When we talked to the office upon return, they gave us a crappy $65 discount on diesel tax.”

“We had sent by Email our flight number and arriving time, there was nobody at the airport to transfer to the renter. At the renter office, we wait for the vehicle for 1 hour and half. The vehicle proposed was out of order, dirty, bumped and completely rusted, seats tattered, kitchen grease-dirty, showerhead out of order, shower and toilets rusted and dirty . I will send you by mail some pictures. ”

“Other than a few minor issues, which were addressed and made good by your friendly staff, we had a pleasant experience. The South Island is the place to camp and this vehicle was absolutely perfect for such a trip. When we come back, we will hire you again.”

“The vehicle was too old, inside as well as outside. It wasted a lot of Diesel because the motor was also too old. We aré sorry, but it was not a very godo experience”

“Vehicle was rough-dings,bumps,not like the pictures.The rear door handle broke very inconvenient.Sink leaks around basin things in cupboard under got wet had to fix.The cover for the gas cooker was loose and rattling and screw coming out, we had to fix it-no tools in van so we had to buy screwdrivers.Linen pack supplied needs to include 2 sheets when it is very hot you only have a duvet to put over you,had to buy another sheet. ”

“The vehicle itself was one of the worst experiences I have ever had. Old, broken, noisy and everything else you can imagine. You really don't wanna spend your money here. I'd rather spend a few Dollars more and have a fully relaxing vacation. Lucky Rentals customer service was okay though. They even reimbursed us for a one night fee for all the trouble we had with it. But all together: Not worth it!”

“Shower was very disappointing, we couldn't use it whatsoever and therefore had to end up paying for camp sites. Our fridge door also fell of its hinge countless times on our trip. Just needed to be screwed on properly but we didn't have those tools available. It's sad to pay a lot of money and not get 100% use of the van.”

“NOT YOUR FAULT I SHOULD HAVE BOOKED A LARGER VAN”

Vehicle Comments

From:  Hedley A.

“This van was seriously underpowered and, in NZ, this is a major drawback. Getting up hills was the biggest problem, the speed often dropping to 30kph or less. This made travelling a much longer process than we had anticipated, consequently reduced the time we had to see the magnificent sights of NZ.”
