Excellent experience motor-couch and touring around Southern New Zealand. Check in and out was quick and fairly easy although you do a lot on your own until a sales rep comes to checks you out. Wish we had an explanation of some of the options ahead of time. Ie we purchased 5 extra GM of data on wi fi for the 2 weeks we were there. I would have happily used it if I could, but most areas the signal was not strong enough or fast enough to do photo uploads so should have not made that purchase. The country was set up nicely for this sort of travel. Most campgrounds include showers, kitchens, bathrooms, wifi etc so you aren't dependent on your coach for all of it. we rented an oversize which was really nice (ie slept 4-5 when there were just 2 of us). This allowed us to leave a bed made up and leave our luggage accessible for easy use.
Loved driving the countryside, every area had its own rewards. We did the most hiking in the Glacier region but all areas are beautiful. all hiking trails were well marked and nicely maintained, very impressive Park system I really liked the 2 days in the Caitlin's as there were lots of beautiful short hikes along coast with lots of light houses, birds, penguins, seals etc..
Milford and Doubtful sound deserved more time but it was raining and cold for us so we actually left that area early.
We only toured the southern Island and even then we didn't hit the Northern or Eastern coast and there would be plenty to do there. I would have liked to spend a little more time in the farming areas along the central and eastern areas. (pick some fresh fruit, go to wineries etc) Our trip was 2 weeks but could easily fill 3-4 weeks.
