Group: Life of Van

Camping clubs & groups

Since 2020 more kiwis have been travelling at home and discovering the delights of outdoor adventures and camping in their own regions.

Wellington-based couple Chloe Wright and Jonathan Collins, passionate about tent camping experiences, found that sharing this on Facebook via the NZ Fun Adventures page attracted a growing number of campers who travelled and camped in vehicles, camper vans, trailer campers, or caravans.

Being former caravanners, they decided to launch an ‘Life of Van – New Zealand’ as a platform for van travellers to share their tips and tricks, and find a positive community to support other vehicle campers.

Life of Van NZ FB Page is a private group with a positive vibe, giving everyone from weekend warriors to van life veterans a place to connect.

It focuses on celebrating the sense of freedom in van travelling, while encouraging that free spirit for those who might be new to van life.
