Everyone wants to live the dream, but for the motorhome/caravan newbie, where to begin?

Living the dream is something everyone wants to do, but for those new to motorhomes or caravans, it can be overwhelming to know where to begin. Joining the NZMCA is the first step, but what comes next?

Some members suggest hitting the road and asking questions later, but not everyone feels confident enough to take that approach. Fortunately, many NZMCA members have friends or family who are experienced motor caravanners and can provide guidance.

However, where do you start if you're a motor caravanning virgin with no connections? This section is for you. The NZMCA has a small but effective group of Technical Advisers who can answer questions and offer advice on electrical, gas, and LPG, New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA) regulations, and health and safety.
