Used Campervan Maintenance Costs

Older vehicles have accumulated their mileage over many years and will have been well-maintained over their lifespan, but their maintenance costs will continue as their mileage increases. On average we estimate maintenance costs of approximately NZ$500 per 10 000km travelled. These costs usually include, but are not limited to: tyres, brake pads, oil, brake fluid, filters and any other wear and tear items.
