Path Escape

The Path Escape features a permanent double bed over the driver's cabin, and large queen size bed that converts from the dining area. The vehicle offers many quality features including fridge, gas heater, gas stove, microwave, pressurized hot and cold water, shower and toilet.  A CD/radio in the driver's cabin and heating throughout add to the enjoyment. It's a great way to see the real New Zealand.

Supplied in the camper you will find linen and bedding, kitchen essentials including crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils plus all the general living gear you’ll need. Don’t forget to pack soft bags instead of a suitcase – much easier to store in the camper!
