Does anyone have any experience on roadtripping New Zealand? I plan on spending about 3 weeks in January in NZ with my girlfriend for a mix of mountain biking, hiking and jumping out off or out of things.

Has anyone tried to hire a campervan that can fit bikes? I've heard it's basically cheaper to get a hire car and stay in hotels? What is the camping situation like in NZ - can I stop a campervan almost anywhere and stay the night? What about tent camping?

If the camper is fully self-contained (toilet) then you're pretty much good to go.

I'm heading to NZ for the month of February. Any advice is appreciated from those who have done it. Specific questions...
Ship my bike (from Montana) or rent / buy one there?
More info re: rental vans / RVs, camping recommendations (going with wife and 9 year old daughter and plan to camp most of the time)?
We'll be based out of Christchurch - bike shop / MTB info hub recommendations on the South Island?
Specific trail recommendations? I tend toward XC riding but do like some tech. I love loop rides that involve huge climbs and descents.
