Hi. My husband Tom and I, Bobbie, own a 1975 Bay Window Westfalia Campervan, fully restored and in beautiful condition.
I am a New Zealander but live in the UK ( 36 years now). We are 70 and 62 respectively.
Next year, 2018, we are going back to visit friends, family and see more of NZ for about 2 months and for some of this time we would love to be travelling in a campervan/motorhome. This would be both North Island and South Island as outlined below.
We arrive 6th Feb and would like to use a campervan to travel round the Coromandel Peninsula for about a week and maybe up to the Bay of Islands.
Mid-march we go to the South Island for about 3 weeks and would love to travel in a camper for some of this time.
I don't know if it is possible to exchange with 2 different people, North and South Island.
Our camper would be available for whenever you would like to use it in the UK in 2018 or later on. I state the UK because as she is a grand old lady and although going like a gem we would not want her to go on exchange to Europe. Photos of her (Bettina) are available.

A few thoughts for first time exchangers.

You probably need to place your listing or ad at least 6-8 months prior to your contemplated holiday.

Look for an exchange with a motor home that is similar in size to your own. Remember you will be in a different country and you will need to concentrate on traffic conditions and road signs rather than the size of the vehicle.

Come to an agreement over insurance and any other costs that may occur during the exchange, for example if the fridge breaks down, or you get a blow-out in one of the tyres.

Join a motor home association in the country you intend to holiday in. They can often make bookings for you on ferries etc and provide good information on camping sites.

Keep in constant touch with the people you have exchanged with building up a bond with them so that you both feel comfortable with the exchange.

Last but not least it is worthwhile producing a realistic itinerary so that you can accommodate all the sights you envisage visiting.
