What Iconic Motorhome Tell Us
Iconic Motorhome is quite pricey compared to other rental companies in New Zealand, but guarantees a very comfortable and deluxe road trip. All their Swift motorhomes originated in the United Kingdom and are built specifically to combat the extreme weather conditions of New Zealand, whether you are travelling during the scorching summer heat or during the severe winter freeze.
Each motorhome features all modern hotel essentials— linens, duvets, towels, toilet, shower, TV, DVD player, kitchen equipment, gas cooker, crockery & cutlery, fridge and cleaning stuffs, making your road trip to be literally like a luxury hotel on wheels.
Since Iconic Motorhomes is not your typical budget-friendly New Zealand motorhome rental, you can hope for one of a kind road experience. Let's begin with their top of the range vehicles from the United Kingdom, which are all listed as self-contained. Iconic motorhomes are ideal for travellers wanting a lavish stay on the road as you will indulge yourself with luxury treats such as hotel quality dining facilities and superior bedding essentials.
With their diverse fleet, there's something for every traveller. For peeps travelling in pairs, you can either choose the Sundance or the Rio Black Edition 2017. A maximum of 4 persons can be accommodated by their Bolero Black Edition and Kon-Tiki Black Edition. And if you are travelling in six, then the ultimate and only choice is the Escape. Just recently, Iconic unveiled a new member in their fleet: Gr8 Escape 2017— a 5-berth motorhome which is available from February 2017. Most Iconic motorhomes are nearly new, so it's a perfect match for those who are a bit finicky when it comes to vehicle endurance.
2 Berths - Sundance and Rio Black Edition 2017
Iconic Motorhome starts off with their 2-berth motorhomes— Sundance and Rio Black Edition 2017, which feature all the basic camping essentials with some certain advancements like large hanging wardrobe, TV & DVD player and spacious lounge with side couches.
Sundance is operated by a 2012 manual transmission Fiat Ducato, making it the oldest vehicle on their fleet. Despite being older than other vehicles, this particular motorhome is carefully maintained and is way cheaper than the Rio Black Edition 2017, which is a step-up 2-berth motorhome. The Rio Black Edition 2017 operated by Fiat Multijet model, is best for couples looking for a small yet luxury vehicle. However, Sundance is a great choice for those in tighter budget, but still wanting a fulfilling road experience.
4 Berths - Bolero Black Edition and Kon-Tiki Black Edition
Further, the 4-berth motorhomes are Bolero Black Edition and Kon-Tiki Black Edition, both run by a Fiat Ducato vehicle. These motorhomes seat up to 4 passengers, but is also perfect for couples wanting a roomy lounge. The Bolero Black Edition is a multi-award winning motorhome in the 7 metre category, with lovely design features such as permanent double rear bed built at low level, two side couches, freestanding dining table, generous interior storage and privacy blinds. On the other hand, the Kon-Tiki Black Edition is the company's 'top of the range' motorhome, having almost the same features with the Bolero Black Edition but with definite improvements—Triptronic 180bhp automatic gearbox and higher length at 8.06m. So, if you're travelling with some picky giants, might as well choose this motorhome for a more suitable trip.
6 Berth - Escape & Gr8 Escape 2017
Lastly, the motorhome ideal for family adventures—Escape. Escape can accommodate a family of up to 6 people and still leaves a spacious interior. Aside from the permanent made up beds, the motorhome also provides a table for a comfortable dining, which can be towed away for more space or be used as an additional bed. You also don't have to worry if you're travelling with your kids as the motorhome features baby and booster seats, and large bunk storage for your travel essentials. And before we forget, Iconic Motorhome just revealed a new addition to their fleet—Gr8 Escape 2017, which is an improved version of Escape. The 5-berth motorhome takes pride with its panoramic sunroof, bigger fridge, swivel front seats, thermostatically controlled central heating and the L-shaped kitchen area.
For all Iconic motorhomes, the insurance excess is at $5000.00, but you have an option to reduce the liability by paying additional amount per day. Paying $45.00 per day will reduce the liability to $2750.00 while paying $60.00 per day will trim down the excess to $500.00.
Iconic Motorhome is known to provide excellent road trips through their deluxe fleet that comes with a pricey rate.

Most clients also expressed how good the customer service was, from the initial inquiry to the return of the vehicle. Despite of the almost flawless reputation, there were slight insurance related shortcomings that were raised by previous clients, but were properly addressed by the team.
It's not a question that Iconic Motorhome is more expensive than other rental companies in New Zealand, but all the positive feedback we hear from travellers suggests that the price was sure worth the money.
