Fully renovated campervan for sale, “SS Mahia”!

Freshly fitted out for the ultimate off-grid experience!

This stunning camper must be seen to be believed! Recently designed and fitted out by its current owners, SS Mahia (named after the stunning Mahia Peninsula!) is in top-notch condition, packed with plenty of mod-cons and space, and it’s now looking for a new home. Her owners will accept offers from $45K NZD. Here’s what’s up…

All about the vehicle

SS Mahia, built with gorgeous Tasmanian Oak, is a 2-berth 2011 LWB Ford Transit High Roof – diesel, 6 speed manual – with 270,986km on the clock. While it is designed and certified for two, it can comfortably sleep four people and safely seat three on the road.

It’s about 5.7 meters long and weighs roughly 2,800kg. You can drive it with a standard car licence and it’s got a regular WOF which expires in November 2024. SS Mahia comes with a factory-fitted stereo (with an aux connection), two sets of keys, and an engine that runs like a charm.

Let’s head inside…

Up front in the cab, there are 3 belted seats. In the living space, there are linoleum floors, about 1.8 meters of headspace in the kitchen and 1.4 meters in the seating area when the bed is raised. The windows are tinted for privacy and there’s a Maxx Air fan to keep things breezy. Plus, it’s insulated really well so you’ll be cosy in any weather!

Preparing and enjoying food

In the kitchen there’s a sink, benchtop oven, microwave, a 60L fridge with a freezer compartment, along with loads of cupboard and basket space for storage.

For dining, there’s a removable table and seating for four. And there’s even a 32″ Smart TV for lounging while you eat!

And so to bed…

SS Mahia can sleep four – two on the double bed and two on the benches below. The inner-sprung double bed is 120cm wide by 180cm long, and moves up with electric actuators. See how to move it up and how it looks from the back here!

The power system

The van’s got two 130Ah lead-carbon leisure batteries which power the 24V electrics (for the LED lights, fridge, water pump etc.) For mains power, there are sockets inside linked to an external hook-up and 15m lead for connecting to campsite power. Plus there’s a (new) 2000W inverter connected to the 24V system, so you’re all set for any device whether you’re off-grid or not!

Is it self-contained?

The van is certified self-contained (CSC) for two people with the “blue warrant” which means it can be used for freedom camping until 7 June 2025 but after than (unless the Government changes the rules!) it would need to be upgraded with a fixed toilet in order to freedom camp. The van has a 40L fresh water tank, a 12V electric water pump to supply cold water to the kitchen sink and a 40L waste water tank. Both waste and fresh water tanks sit under the kitchen sink and the brand new, portable cassette toilet is stored under the bench seat.
