So where is the Motorhome Friendly Town program now?
The Motorhome Friendly Town has its own homepage here- https://www.nzmca.org.nz/mhf under the Motorhome Friendly tab in the main menu. All your usual events and walking & cycling trails are in there as well.
The next major change is a much more comprehensive online Travel Directory (TD) which you’ll find under the Travel & Explore tab in the main menu.
How do I use it?
To start your search, all you need to do is enter where you want to go- type in a location or place name (note: we’re using Google mapping so make sure that when Google maps brings up your location, select it with your mouse cursor if you’re on a laptop/desktop).
The results that you’ll get within a default 20km radius of your chosen location (you can adjust this up to 100kms) are:
This is the order the results of your search will always be in- TD sites first, then Motorhome Friendly towns, events, walking & cycling trails, NZMCA Rallies and other Points of Interest last.
Adjusting the radius will adjust your results as well.
Can you refine your results further?
Yes. Simply select the ‘Filter results’ button which gives you the option of viewing either just Travel Directory sites, or Motorhome Friendly Town information.
When you opt to refine your search results to just Travel Directory sites, you can find TD sites by site type (POP, CAP, etc); you can enter a keyword; you can enter a site name or a site’s TD number. You can also filter by Facilities (eg. selecting Pet Friendly only loads TD sites that are Pet Friendly).
When you opt to refine your search results to just Motorhome Friendly information, you can select to just load towns, walking & cycling trails or events.
Not really good at this, any tips?
Give it a go! We can go on and on explaining how it works, but the best teacher is always experience- try it out, give it a spin. If you encounter issues or have some queries, fire us an email, [email protected]
Absolutely yes. You can even pay on your laptop or desktop computer (you need to be logged in).
