What is Motor Caravanning?
Motor caravanning is described as a recreational lifestyle and the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association is synonymous with this way of life.
A broad definition of motor caravanning or “movanning” (and this includes all kinds of vehicles from caravans, fifth-wheelers, etc) is that it provides not only a means of transport but accommodation too. The philosophy behind this form of travel is freedom. Movanners are able to stop off wherever interest is piqued by local attractions without the hassle of advance booking and rigid scheduling. For many, this is the ultimate recreational lifestyle – to explore the ‘real’ New Zealand, at their leisure, enjoying everything each stay has to offer.
Unlike other methods of touring, motor caravans afford you privacy, the opportunity to take pets, and to visit friends and family without the requisite of ‘home invasion’. They allow room for you to travel with your friends or family with sizeable recreational equipment, while still in comfort. Motor caravans also give the less mobile, older or handicapped individuals, the ability to spend time in camping areas otherwise inaccessible to them.
