In November 2017 Auto-Trail flew to the other side of the world to visit our Australian distributor Elite RV, our New Zealand dealers and the New Zealand Auto-Trail Owners Club.

Auto-Trail was the first European motorhome manufacturer to achieve Australian homologation, which is required to sell vehicles in Australia. Elite RV are the exclusive importers of Auto-Trail motorhomes, they have an amazing showroom on the Gold Coast and an extensive network of service centres to ensure our customers always stay on the road – even when they are travelling across the world.

Elite RV has just compleated construction of a new depot in the coastal capital Melbourne, where they will be opening a new showroom and service and repair unit.

Auto-Trail then took a trip to Australia’s neighbour, New Zealand to visit our dealers, Auckland Motorhomes and Ashburton Motorhomes, and to attend the Auto -Trail Owners Club NZ event.

New Zealand is a growing market in the leisure industry, and exporting there is an area for growth for Auto-Trail. With 100 Auto-Trail motorhomes on display at the ATOC NZ event and over 200 people attending, we were delighted to see how popular Auto-Trail motorhomes are outside the UK.

Auto-Trail held a presentation for the ATOC NZ, where Managing Director, Dave Thomas gave a talk all about the history of Auto-Trail, and Director of Sales and Marketing, Scott Stephens spoke about our new 2018 models, the Imala 732Tracker LB and V-Line Sport.

The event later finished with a Q+A and raffle where ATOC NZ members got the chance to win some lovely prizes including a TOMTOM Sat Nav.

Overall, the trip was very successful giving Auto-Trail the chance to build upon their relationships in Australia and New Zealand. Auto-Trail are very pleased to see how loved our motorhomes are from customers all around the world.
