Kiwis looking for an affordable ‘home away from home’ are about to get the chance to drive away one of 60 quality ex-rental campervans when they go under the hammer on behalf of Jucy Rentals at Turners Auctions in July.

Jonathan Sergel, from Turners Auctions, says this is a rare opportunity to buy a quality mobile holiday home at a rock bottom price.

‘Never before have we had such a large quantity of campers to auction in one go – it’s a fantastic opportunity if you’ve been wanting to buy a motorhome but have been holding back due to cost. We’ve even got two going at no reserve – someone is going to drive away an absolute bargain,’ says Sergel.

Dan Alpe, Managing Director of Jucy Rentals New Zealand agrees; “The campers still have plenty of life left in them and are by far the cheapest available on the market. Brand new they can go for $65,000.”

Already interest is mounting from a wide range of potential bidders, including surfers, snowboarders, campers and trampers, backpackers, the retired, and even people keen to tour New Zealand during the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

There are two different types of camper up for auction; the Toyota Hiace 2000 Sleeper Van, which sleeps 2, and the 3-berth Toyota Dyna 2000 Deluxe Campervan. The campers are being sold by Jucy Rentals to make space for a new model they are releasing in September.

The 40 Sleeper Van models, which are expected to sell for between $13,000 and $15,000, are perfect for the surfer, tramper or backpacker as a vehicle they can bed down in overnight. They contain two bench seats and a table which convert into a double bed, as well as a stove, fridge and even a microwave and heated towel rail!

The 20 Deluxe Campervan models, expected to sell for between $35,000 and $40,000 are an extremely popular campervan for tourists wanting to explore New Zealand in style. These purpose built motor homes, designed and built in New Zealand, feature all the comforts of home including a double and single bed, kitchen, bathroom and shower, a flat screen DVD player, wardrobe and electric safe.

Alpe says these sharply priced campervans are a good entry into the motor homing world of New Zealand.

“We regularly service our campervans every 15,000kms so they have been extremely well maintained. You won’t find a campervan like these ones for a better price, they are a steal!”

The campers will be sold in two separate auctions, one in Auckland and one in Christchurch, with 30 campers in each auction. The Auckland auction will be held at Turners Auctions Penrose, Building A, corner of Leonard and Penrose Roads, Penrose, at 12.30pm Saturday, July 3. The Christchurch auction will be held at Turners Auctions, 1 Detroit Place (off Moorhouse Ave), Christchurch at 12pm Saturday, July 10. Interested parties elsewhere in the country are able to bid remotely by phone bid, or using the Turners Live online bidding system.

A full list of the campervans, including photos, is available via the online catalogue at www.turners.co.nz
