Free AA travel guides that have not been updated with information on this year's give way rules are still publicly available.
But AA spokesman Simon Lambourne said the Go, See, Discover, Stay series would be replaced next month with the changes to the text and diagrams.
Meantime, AA outlets had been provided with stickers to place over the outdated road rule information.
A Foxton woman planning a South Island holiday picked up several copies of the guides from the Levin Library last week.
She was shocked to see the wrong information still being handed out after the March change.
"I want to know that the campervan coming towards me knows the rules."
When she rang to complain, she said the AA operator was "offhand" and asked her if she realised how much it would cost to recall and reprint all the brochures.
Mr Lambourne said the guides had been printed last November, well ahead of the changes to the give way rules.
AA had followed up by providing stickers to its own offices that could be placed over the outdated information.
It had also sent information to campervan and rental organisations asking them to alert drivers to the changes and had provided messages through its newsletters to most of the organisations on its distribution list. However, it was possible some third parties did not know about the pasting-over option.
Fresh brochures incorporating the changes would be available next month.
