It depends on the credit card as far as which will cover campers in NZ.   The Citi Prestige/Premier cards were the only ones I know of that offer coverage on all vehicles.  Most (such as the CSR, CSP, Barclays) have restrictions for specialty vehicles such as campers, pick-up trucks, etc so they would be unlikely to offer coverage.  Citi is discontinuing this coverage beginning in September or October this year IIRC.  You also need to check whether your CC has coverage in New Zealand as many don't offer coverage here, along with countries like Ireland, Jamaica, and a few others.  I know the Citi Premier/Prestige and Chase Sapphire Preferred/Reserve offer coverage here, but others exclude New Zealand.  Do you know what cards you have that you would be using?

One thing to keep in mind is that NZ has the AAC, which covers all medical expenses for individuals who are injured in accidents in New Zealand, so liability coverage is not necessary.

Liability also covers the other guy's car.

worth to visit NZ if only have 5 days -- arriving 6am on Tuesday (takes "2 days" to get there) and leaving 10pm on Sunday?

will stay in Hawaii for the following week, as it seems to be an excellent stopover idea for travel between USA-NZ.
