However if you want to know more....

Classy Pimped Vehicles 

Sweet As Campers are quite unique, offering “pimped” campervans in to travellers to New Zealand. Their vehicles are clean and well maintained. The pimped campervans come in different colors both on the inside and the outside. Whilst you are allowed to make a booking for the preferred vehicle of choice, unfortunately they can’t guarantee it as each van is unique and your may already be out, or need a repair at the time you need it.

Sweet As Campers knows a little about luxury travel and they have customized all their pimped vans with all the amenities that add comfort and lots of fun to the users. All pimped vans have crazy colored interiors and various fittings include; bubble tinted windows, chandeliers that transform the van to a luxurious nightclub comfy vehicle, plush leather seats, blue velvet seats etc. You will definitely like the van’s sweet body kit, shag pile carpets, high interior roof, moon roof over the driving cab, and perfect body paints that are well decorated with awesome graffiti. Some of the features that you can expect to find include; manual transmission, 3 seatbelts, microwave, roof rack, 20lt water container, small tub for the sink, mains power points which works when plugged into power,  house battery, awning attaches to the side, portable gas cooker, outdoor table and chairs included in hire rate, TV with ariel, chemical porta-toilet without a self-contained certificate, 32 litre fridge (battery and mains power), air conditioning and heater (run off engine), portable heater, AM/FM radio, CD player and beddings.

"Total disaster"

  • Reviewed 3 months ago

Totally disaster, never use this company......my holiday was fuxked up due to this dishonest company.
1. Give a totally different car to you and tell you to accept it at the day of pick-up.
2. Shift your car returning time to earlier by its side.
3. Charge you extra money from your credit card without any notification and details.

Hopefully no one would suffer again, please be aware of this " Sweet As Campers" car rental company.
