Maui's depot in Auckland is temporarily transferred from Pearse Drive to Puhinui Road after a fire incident last September 2020. Even so, their fleet of elegant and upscale motorhomes are still available for rent.

Maui New Zealand understands that you want a vacation that combines excitement and luxury. And they excel at delivering just that. Offering a level of service that few high-class campervan hire companies can match, Maui is much more than just the destinationit's about the trip. 

About Maui New Zealand

When you hire a campervan with Maui New Zealand, you’re investing in a vehicle that will provide many of the comforts, luxuries, and amenities of a modern apartment on the road plainly because this is luxury motorhome hire. Just imagine experiencing the captivating natural beauty of New Zealand by day and then retreating to the sanctuary of your posh campervan for an evening of rest and relaxation. This luxury does come at a price, however, and Maui New Zealand is not the cheapest campervan for hire in New Zealand. But you get what you pay for. And with Maui New Zealand you get a lot. 

Plus, they frequently run promotions including multi-hire discounts and group hires so savings opportunities are available to savvy shoppers. Maui New Zealand knows they’re not the only luxury campervan hire company in New Zealand. That’s why their friendly staff strives so hard to make Maui New Zealand the best choice available. In addition to arranging free transportation to and from Auckland and Christchurch international airport, they’ll also help you plan the perfect itinerary for your New Zealand adventure. Questions? Feel free to give them a call. Maui New Zealand operates a 24/7 international toll-free number. If you’ve got questions, they’ve got answers. And before you head to your epic NZ adventure, don't forget to check this valuable NZ free camping tool. It's an amazing website that provides you with different freedom camping rules for different NZ sites. 


Beyond some of the highest-quality campervans for hire doing business with Maui New Zealand ensure you’ll have a memorable customer service experience. Every one of Maui New Zealand’s campervan for hire has been custom designed with comfort in mind and are self-contained for freedom camping. However, if you are a manual lover, you'll be disappointed because all are automatic units. Recently, the fleet added a new set of 2 berth and 4 berth campervans that are guaranteed under 6 months old. All other motorhomes are under 2. 5 years old; hence, issues about wear and tear is a less problem. 



2 Berth Ultima

This 2 berth motorhome is all about flexibility and outdoor fun. So, you have the option to have a cozier double bed or two singles at night, and you have separate storage for your sports equipment like fishing rods and golf clubs, except for bicycles. Not only that, since a Kiwi adventure is never complete with some laid-back BBQ treat, and you get to experience such with the Ultima. 

2+ 1 Ultima Plus

The Ultima Plus is actually a step up in terms of sleeping capacity. This 3 berth motorhome allows you to sneak in your kid for a happy family bonding. The motorhome is equipped with useful facilities for all three of you, from the bathroom to the kitchen. Aside from the double bed or two singles at the rear, the unit provides a single bed for your child at the front area and child/ booster seat for safety. With this model, you can also experience some outdoor fun, just like the other Ultima unit. 

4 Berth Cascade

Suitable for either two couples or a family of four, the Cascade brings comfort despite its limited vehicle dimensions. With its well-designed interior layout, all useful amenities are still included on-board. The U-lounge at the rear becomes a spacious double with huge windows. The second bed is positioned at the front of the ceiling cavity. You are not provided with a microwave, but there are bike racks fitted out in the motorhome. 

4 Berth Beach

Extra space and stylish comfort, the 4 berth Beach is designed for a more fancy road trip. This motorhome is particularly created to give versatile space. Hence, you have all the room to stretch out your arms and legs without feeling restricted. The front dining zone is really roomy and does not need to be converted into a second bed because the other sleeping area is located at the cab-over. So if you're looking for an apartment-style motorhome with sleek facilities, the Beach is all you need. 

6 Berth River

Designed for families in need of more space and storage, this 6 berth motorhome is much more cozy and extensive. It has a bigger fridge, bigger fresh and wastewater tanks, and bigger rear windows. Hence, if your children are all grown-up or you're with some adult pals, then this is the right one for you. Because of the fitted out facilities like shower & toilet, elegant kitchen and palatial beds, this motorhome feels like a posh apartment on wheels. 

Summer Campers

2 Berth Action Pod

A compact room for two, the Action Pod is a slight downgrade with the exclusion of onboard shower & toilet. Still, the comfort and features are the same as other big campervans, and you can easily maneuver and park this unit anywhere. Accordingly, this one is suitable for unassuming travellers who wouldn't mind exploring the outskirts with just enough facilities that will get you through your holiday, from the double bed to the pull-out kitchen.

4 Berth Cruiser

Known for its European-style comfort, the 4 berth Cruiser is all you need for a cozier and entertaining holiday on the road. And what do we mean by entertaining? Well, unlike similar motorhomes on the fleet, this one provides you with fascinating entertainment set with LCD screen and DVD player. Whether you're travelling with your kids or some of your friends, the motorhome is set to make your holiday more engaging. 

6 Berth Encounter

As you can see, the 6 berth Encounter is sourced out from their sister company, Britz. This motorhome is your standard family unit that gives enough room for all 6 adult passengers. The entire rear is allocated for the permanent bedroom featuring a large double bed and huge windows. Others can relax at the cab-over bed and convertible dinette. For your cooking needs, you can make it happen with the help of the full kitchen. 


The standard liability for the motorhomes is NZ$7,500, which will be taken upon vehicle collection through your credit card. You can avail of their liability reduction option at $46/day to reduce the excess to NIL. This includes damage for windscreen, tyre, overhead, and underbody. Another option is the Maui Inclusive Pack at $58/day, which comes with NIL, extra driver fee, camping table, chairs, snow chains, and more. 


There are many ways to travel around New Zealand but there’s one reputable way to enjoy the pinnacle of style, luxury, and comfort on your trip: in a motorhome from Maui New Zealand. Their rates might price them out of the market for most travelers, but for those who can afford it, Maui New Zealand offers perhaps the nicest motorhomes for hire in New Zealand. Unlike other large rental companies that often neglect the importance of customer service, Maui is an exception. For many years now, they provide not just quality units but also quality service. With that, they have created a name in the rental industry. 


If you want experience above anything else, then a motorhome from Maui will not fail you. The company is one of the most popular motorhome rentals, not just in New Zealand but across the USA and Australia.

"Broken Maui Platinum Beach"

  • Reviewed 5 years ago

First 4 nights went okay. Grey water tank indicator broken and 1 window shade was 3 inches too short. Starting on night 3, the electrical system started intermittently shutting down. We were in Milford Sound with no cell service so could not contact Maui. Returning to Queenstown, we were told to bring the unit in to their office. 5 1/2 hours later we we’re told it was fixed. It wasn’t. Night 4 with intermittent power. 24/7 service says they will contact is about 15 hours (8 am local). Such poor service. Beware
