Clearly the little blue stickers saying “self contained vehicle” are too easy to buy off the internet or simply photocopy so the only solution is to make it part of an annual WOF/COF check. They will then have another little card in the front window that can be scanned like a rego sticker to see if it’s fake. Rental campervan operators should also have their annual rego fees increased to $5000 (a mere $100 per week) so that money comes back to the Government to fund better infrastructure. That would have the desired effect of making freedom camping holidays too expensive for the feral free-loaders who will then go back to travelling on green backpacker buses and staying in hostels - and Queenstown Inc will get the visitor levy.
