Your NZMCA membership is for you (and your partner), not your motor caravan. That means you don’t need to have a motor caravan to join us, your motor caravan may change over time and you can have more than one connected to your membership. As long as when you buy or hire a motor caravan, it’s Certified Self-Contained. To use NZMCA Parks you must proudly display your NZMCA wings, financial membership window card, and self-containment certification.
Yes you can still join and keep your membership as long as your motor caravan is Certified Self-Contained before you renew your membership in 12 months time.
Motor caravan includes all of these leisure vehicles: caravan, campervan, motorhome, fifth wheeler, camper trailer, and house bus or truck. Your exclusive Cook Strait ferry NZMCA member discount applies to your car, trailer, boat or horse trucks as well as your motor caravan.
You must be a permanent New Zealand resident to join. You’re also welcome to join us if you’re visiting New Zealand and a current financial member of one of our overseas partner clubs. Link:
