Are there any 'must see' routes that others have taken? Any general advice on camper vanning (cheap camp sites, general tips etc?) Also, will we freeze?!

NZ can certainly be cold in winter. You should definitely choose a camper with a diesel heater so you aren't reliant on power wherever you camp.
If you need to choose a camper then see thousands of independent reviews for camper companies here - http://www.rankers.co.nz/tags/motorhomes-campervans-rv
Happy travels around NZ and go well.
