Hi, planning a trip for 12 months to NZ in 2019, and as experienced caravaners (on the road for past 7 years) were hoping to buy a car/4wd and caravan when we arrive.
Do any of you experienced NZ grey nomads have any suggestions on where we might start looking.

Hi John. The biggest range would be found here:
https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/carava ... 4a107c6590
There are various publications including the NZMCA members "Motor Caravanner" magazine that have a range of classifieds, but the good deals are often done before the magazine is printed.
Demand is strong in NZ as the "Baby Boomers" retire and spend their retirement nest eggs on their life time dream.

Have you considered bringing your Aussie rig over on a carnet-de-passage? I believe you can do it for 12 months. Shipping costs might be less than buying one here and selling when you leave.

Hi 2badkids. Sorry for delay in replying, lost the link then had to remember our log in name...
Might be interested in your suggestion. What sort of price might you be looking at?
When would you be looking at selling?
Perhaps we could talk more off line.

Hi mattn, yes we did look at the $$ involved in doing this. A cost of $11,000 each way for car and van, plus our airfares is quite prohibitive.
