How much it costs to travel by campervan in New Zealand for 4 weeks.

During our time in New Zealand I kept a pretty comprehensive record of what we were spending our money on, for personal interest and to also help us plan our second half of travel after Christmas. I think it might be quite a useful tool for other travellers out there and so I've included the breakdown below.
