“Cleanliness was fine, but there were several things about the design which were very poor. We only had four adults and rented a camper that was able to sleep 6 - but the table was such that four adults could not sit at it. Not lots of easily accessible storage and shelves with no guard for things to fall off are really not much use. No TV reception anywhere - so people shouldn't expect it. Depot manager was so very accommodating. ”
From: Carolyn C.
“We were offered a 6 berth Mighty instead of a Britz for a cheaper price.well maintained, looked brand new. Brand new appliances. we only used 2 beds as the one at the back was massive. small pots, cant cook pasta. No gladwrap or kitchen paper and very little dishwashing detergent. not easy to drive - watch out for the grey water valve which sticks out and can get caught! We did this, fortunately had paid to reduce liability to nil, came in to the depot and they fixed it within the hour. ”

“there was a problem with the airconditioning , so we had to take it to be fixed. We were told it would be at least two hours and that it needed a service. We left , gave our mobile number and they were to call us.After 2 1/2 hours and no call we went back to the workshop, and it was locked up , our van was also locked.We searched everywhere for the keys.I then called your office and they were able to get a hold of someone who told them were they had left the keys. ”

“The van was great . We booked a Britz Frontier and received a Maui. The van was powerful, economical, smooth and easy to handle. I would have liked A/C for the rear of the cabin as it got very hot in the back. The diesel heater was great for the cold nights. We had plenty of linen and blankets. The bed were very comfortable . I give the van a 9/10. ”

“It was not a Brits rv we got a Maui rv.”

“Actually we were upgraded to Maui instead of the Frontier. Depot was fine but gave little to no instruction on how the any of the interior features worked. We kind of had to discover everything ourselves. One recommendation for these vehicles is they need more hooks or surfaces to secure your stuff while you are driving. ”

“The vehicle was everything we needed and worked well for three people, however when on the road it was very noisy a lot of rattles. ”

“The depot in Christchurch is not good. The staff were helpful but few. The 6 berth camper had only three beds. We'd have ordered differently if we'd known this.”

“the experience was great and the value for money was superb. ”

“It's illegal (or at least immoral), to retain deposit as "non-refundable' to change a booking! TV wouldn't tune in to anything! Water inlet hose way too short!.”
