Having a Certified Self Contained Vehicle does not make you a responsible camper, but it can make it easier.
Many local and regional authorities now expect many motorhomes, caravans and campervans to be certified as self contained in order to stay at reserves and designated freedom camping areas.
Your vehicle must have been suitably and correctly set up for self containment and meet the requirement of the NZ Standard.
NZS5465:2001 incl. amendment 2.
In general the vehicle must be fit for habitation.
It must be able to meet the fresh water, waste and ablutionary needs of the occupants for a minimum period of three (3) days.
The waste system must be suitably sealed.
The toilet must be able to be used in the vehicle when required having sufficient head and shoulder room (with the beds made up).
NZ Lifestyle Camping in conjunction with All Points Camping NZ and our team of suitably qualified testing officers can help you with this.
The opportunity to enjoy our beautiful country through camping is yours.
Please respect the environmnent,
the people and our rules.
Always leave your camp ground
better than you found it.
