Rohan Marx is the General Manager here at Motorhome Road Trip and is a vast wealth of knowledge when it comes to RV’ing and the motorhome industry overall. Rohan’s pearl of wisdom comes to you from his years of experience in this industry and a passion for all things ‘RV’.

And the winner of our US $3000 Roadtrip goes to... 

We recently began displaying customer reviews on our websites to aid our new and repeat customers in making the right Motorhome rental decision.  To aid in the gathering and release of our first batch of reviews we offered a one off prize of a Roadtrip to the value of US$3000  in any countries we rent RVs in to one lucky reviewer / customer.  And a big congratulations goes to Judy Thomson who travelled with us in Australia back in March 2011.

Outback Road Trip Australia - seeing wallabies in the Flinders Ranges

Here is a short extract from Judy Thomson's review:

"We picked up our Nomad Camper from Adelaide in South Australia. The Service Team were helpful in guiding us through the pick up details, including everything we needed for the upcoming trip. The camper was as described when we booked via the internet. It had gone a long way but it was clean and everything we expected. It had a map book of the local area and the customer service team gave us directions to local camp sites for our first day out.

We even saw Rock wallabies at 2 in the afternoon jumping around on the rocks on the Flinders Ranges for a couple of hours. We could just stop and enjoy - and we didn't have to be anywhere. Our house was with us. We loved it and would recommend this type of trip to anyone".

Spaceships- It's all about you!

It’s no mistake that Spaceship Rentals is one of the leading providers in backpacker travel and won the New Zealand Tourism Innovation Award in 2006 (after just 2 years in operation). This is a company that prides itself on not just providing quality campervans at stellar prices, but an experience to remember and a standard to live by. June 2011 Spaceships retained its Qualmark endorsement with an 89% pass mark and were additionally awarded the Silver Enviro Award for sustainable business practices.

In their own words “Spaceships are like a good car to drive with more useful features than a campervan. This means that you have the freedom, flexibility and comfort that you can drive up steep hills, on gravel roads and even park in an underground car-park with no problems and still enjoy the cooking and sleeping options of a campervan”. Their clever, well-designed layout (which comes in a couple of 2 and 4 berth configurations) means that you have the advantage of travelling in a campervan which is compact and easy to get around in BUT still has those creature comforts and day-to-day essentials.

Spaceship Rentals is perfect for anyone who is backpacking or simply wants to get around easily in a vehicle which is compact, well-equipped, high quality and comes at a GREAT price. So, if it’s a smart  well-priced, high-standard campervan with excellent customer service that you’re after then beam yourself into Spaceships vehicle in New Zealand, Australia or the U.K and orbit yourself to a roadtrip of another kind. The Spaceships kind.
