2 x opening roofs, at the front and at the back (super when the weather is good, to look at the stars, and to ventilate when it's very hot)

2 x LED lamp rails (lights up well / consumes almost nothing)

2 x 25 liter cans (fresh water and wastewater) connected to a pump sink

1 x camping table + 2 folding chairs

1 x Portable Toilet (never used, necessary for self-contained certification)

1 x Camping tent

1 x Solar shower

2 x Cigarette lighter socket => USB 2 ports (front / rear)


Two persons bed with possibility to transform quickly into table + 2 seats (perfect on rainy days, and for cooking inside) (The storage is located under each bench)

2 x Large size blankets and 4 pillows


-All the necessary kitchen equipment (pots, pans, kettle, plastic boxes, bowls, cups, plates, cutlery, etc ...)

2 x Gas cookers (allows you to eat indoor and outdoor)

1 x Cooler

On overall the van is very well organised, with a lot of discreet storage despite its small size (minivan) that allows it to travel all roads in New Zealand, even the narrowest and most winding. The driving is fluid and pleasant.

The possibility to change from a  "bedroom" to a "living room" is very valuable for comfort in general, especially in winter or when it’s rainy.

This good ol’ Beetlejuice has faithfully transported us all over the country for 1 year, with no other problem than an oil leak and the alternator, which is more than honest given the conditions and when we compare with the mishaps of other backpackers.

The Van is part of the "NZMCA" (New Zealand Motor Caravan Association) until 2021, that gives you some bargains at reduce price.


Invoices of the last 3 years are present in the glove box.

Van available from March 15 in Christchurch.

Price: 3700$
