4 Belted seats 4 Adult berths
Big Buzz is a super reliable 1997 Toyota Dyna… quite the character and ready to take you to infinity and beyond! Well, around NZ at least. Like his pal Woody, he's full of charm and quirky touches. And best of all he sleeps four. So if you’re travelling with the kids - or friends (or a couple!) who want to sleep separately - then Big Buzz is for you.
Note: Big Buzz, like all our larger vans, has a minimum 3 night hire. And while the standard pick-up time for Quirky Campers is 2pm with drop-off at 12 noon on the last day, for Big Buzz standard pick-up time is 4pm and drop-off at 2pm. Please contact us if you require alternative arrangements.
About the Campervan
Location: Big Buzz lives in Lower Shotover approx. 5km from Queenstown airport and 10km from Queenstown itself. Big Buzz may be able to be brought to a convenient location for pick-up/drop-off by arrangement and for a small fee.
In The Cab: 2 seats in cab up front with 3-point seat belts and 2 seats in the back with lap belts.The rear double seat measures 90cm wide and 55cm deep if you are planning to fit a child seat.
Kitchen Area: The interior height is 1.76m and in terms of cooking, Big Buzz contains all the equipment you need (pots, frying pan, plates, bowls, mugs, cups, cutlery, utensils, bread board, chopping board etc.) as well as a spice rack and basics such as salt, pepper and oil. Cold food can be stored in the good-sized fridge and to cook there's a two-burner LPG gas stove and optional microwave (no extra charge). For safety, there is a fire extinguisher and a basic first aid kit.
Living/Sleeping Area: Big Buzz has two comfy beds. There’s the fixed bed over the cab which measures 165cm x 175cm and the convertible bed which measures 130cm x 180cm, assembled in the 4-person dining/seating area. There are good quality black-out curtains all round for a good sleep and Big Buzz has lots of shelving and storage areas as well as travel books and board games for you to enjoy.
Water Facilities: Like all Quirky Campers in NZ, Big Buzz is certified self-contained. There are 50 litre fresh and grey water tanks and an electric pump tap and large sink in the kitchen area. There is a portable toilet and also a very handy outside shower.
Electrical/Lighting and Audio Equipment: Big Buzz has a separate leisure battery recharged by the solar panels (120W). He has a 230V hook-up with 10m cable (for connecting to campsite power), a CTEK multi XS700 battery charger and multiple 230V sockets inside.
Type of Heating: Insulated with a 12V Carver gas heating system to keep you warm on cold nights.
Outside: Big Buzz has a rear bicycle rack and comes with an outdoor table and chairs.
Conversion Story: Big Buzz is our fourth campervan and this time we wanted one to sleep four… without it being a huge vehicle to manoeuvre. We enjoy finding vehicles that we can put our own stamp on and Big Buzz is no different. He had great bones but we’ve given his interior a makeover and shown him some love. The best way to get to know this magical country is in a campervan, so we invite you to create your own wonderful memories with one of ours! – Consuelo & Mat
