country with it and to sell it for a big price I mean you guys have done a really
good job building this thing out and I know when it’s done it’s gonna be really
nice yeah yeah but he put a lot of money inside yeah yeah I mean it shows

Fiji Island for Christmas nice yeah for 8 days so after this we will come back in
New Zealand and we’re gonna start to Travel around the South Island so we start
by Wellington Travel and go to Queenstown to work in a farm whatever we find. So I bought a van Two months ago but its dead we’re gonna buy another one, take all the stuff from the old one and
put it in the in the new one so then can save a bit of money not lose
too much yeah I’m Anton E. I’m 24 years old from Frankfurt, Germany. And yes, you have just seen the smallest camper van in the entire world It is very comfortable, has good fuel economy, is good on the road and drives wonderfully You can have a lot of fun in this car. I am happy I invested 800 euro, ahh 800 dollars My plan for New Zealand? I’m heading to the south with a friend, down the west coast. On the South Island we are going to split up And then I’m goin to drive on my own and go surfing. Put the board on the roof. It’s the perfect surfing car perfect to surf out of name of the car is
“U B”, “U. B.” is the first name and the last name is “Free” so “U B Free yes
that’s cool I mean it’s awesome like honestly traveling in such a small car
mmm is gonna be great because the gas is gonna be so cheap and then you can park
anywhere yeah you’ll never have to worry about
that just nice yeah because it doesn’t look like a camper car yeah just looks
like a car more like gangstas My Name is Tracy. Nice to meet you Tracy. Tell me about your car I bought my car in Auckland. The car was empty when I got it. I bought it from a garage. The man who sold it to me made the conversion. So I am the first backpacker to use it. I am going to visit the South Island For one month Why did you come to New Zealand? I love to travel. It is one of my passions I spent a year in Australia two years ago And then five months in Asia I love traveling so much I wanted to discover a new country I bought a small car because I was alone I was aloud so that’s why I bought a small car but it’s really really cute
and I have enough space so that’s okay
I had a big van when I was in Australia but I would like to change and and try
something else so that’s why I bought a small car but it’s really nice
my name is Rick I’m from Germany why did you choose to come to New
Zealand because a lot of people recommended me doing so for example my
brother he’s been here as well yeah saw a lot of pictures and seems to be a very
nice place for backpackers I bought it in Auckland four weeks ago it doesn’t
have a name yet but it’s going to have one once I once I’m able to build it
like I want to build it. It doesn’t look like my van yet so I don’t want to
give it a name Christmas with a friend of mine In Raglan and I’m going to do some surf
lessons so yeah that’s a fun story I ride bicycles at home and I saw a lot of
nice streets too ride bicycle on and there is there’s so many beautiful
landscapes in New Zealand I bought it
like one or two weeks ago in Rotorua it was weird the first two nights but
now I get used to it I had like the perfect position for the bike so I can
fit it in the back of my car and I just like fix it to the wall so it
doesn’t fall on me while I’m sleeping nice yeah I have a lot of bed sheets that i can cover with so it’s very comfortable and cozy I’m Alex I’m
French I’m 30 years old So why are you in New Zealand I just –
Travel I love photography so it’s a good good country for me to to enjoy that
hiking as well and yeah travel I see people meet people enjoy this year in my
life at the beginning I wasn’t looking for a car but after I I decided to buy a
car because it was the easy way to to cross the country I was looking for a
self contained car I like that it’s easy to stay in free camp or things like that
the self contained means your car is like ready to go and ready to leave so you
need to have a toilet in your car which nobody use but you need to have that
you need to have water inside so I have like two big box of water one for good
water and one for not good water with a sink which works with electricity and
with all of that you need to pass a test and if the test is good your car is
self-contained and you can go everywhere you want in all the free camp when I was
In Auckland I was looking for for a car so I had different choice and I
chose this one because like the engine is very good and thought Toyota is
one of the most favored car for For back packers and everything was almost ready
to go so I decided to buy it I hope you enjoyed the vand tours if you didn’t
