Welcome to HTNZ

Housetruck, housebus, motorhome, motorcaravan, mobilehome… whatever you call a home on wheels, in NZ, there are hundreds of vintage and classic housetrucks and housebuses as well as more modern styled coaches and extravagantly overpriced campervans.

Living the dream.

I saw this what I would say was a blog on Stuff.co.nz. I found it showed how many people are thinking, yet most of them are too scared to take the leap. These people did and their smiles show it all. However we do understand that this lifestyle is not for everyone.

Wellington Truck Show/Convoy

I just got notice via FaceBook.

“Hi Guys

discussions held with council this morning on pending storm have left us no option but to postpone the show until a later date due to safety risks.

I know you have all put a lot into this and will be as gutted as we are”
The Wellington Truck Show has been postponed. The cursed weather strikes again.

Best beaches of NZ

This was placed on Stuff. I hoped to share it with others and maybe get some of their ideas as to what is the best beach in NZ.

Gypsy Fair

The original Gypsy Fair is currently in Petone this weekend. Next weekend they will be in Upper Hutt.

Go along to view some beautiful HouseTrucks and Buses. Oh yes and see their trades. I had the pleasure of watching some them get setup and while speaking with them I found out that there is an original former US Navy bus. The interesting thing about this bus was that it was built right hand drive especially for Japan. So do go along and chat with these guys and you may be surprised what you can learn. For more information about the Gypsy Fair you can go to www.gypsyfair.co.nz or follow them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/114841128557532/
