Big adventure! Off to Kiwi land next year to visit the wifes sister. She lives in the north island but we are planning to get away on our own to the south island for about ten days and are thinking of hiring a motor caravan. We have a tourer in UK and love the lifestyle and New Zealand looks ideally suited (especially the south island) so, has anybody done this and what was your experience, good or bad, and have you any tips? We have heard that "free camping" is allowed, is this true and can you just stop anywhere? Any comments greatly appreciated.
