When you join the NZMCA, you (and your partner) are the ones becoming members. You are not able to sell, gift or share your membership to others.
Membership is restricted to those with Certified Self Contained vehicles unless an exemption has been applied for and granted by the CEO. Applications for Membership can be accepted where the applicant is building a Motor Caravan or waiting to purchase a Motor Caravan which, upon completion or purchase, must be Certified Self Contained prior to next joining date anniversary to maintain membership.
The NZMCA Board implemented a temporary stay on the ability for NZMCA self-containment officers to certify people movers and similar small car conversions under the provisions of the Self-Containment Standard (NZS 5465:2001). To check if your current vehicle is affected click here.
Membership is restricted to permanent New Zealand residents and only those overseas residents who are current financial members of a kindred club in their home country. To check current recognised clubs visit click here.
You can join the Association before you purchase a vehicle. Since membership is with you, not the vehicle, you can rent or borrow a vehicle in the interim, so long as it is Certified Self-Contained and you display the NZMCA wing decal and financial window card.
