The team at SmartRV are proud to have secured the rights to exclusively distribute the highly regarded Carado motorhomes and caravans in New Zealand. Over the past five years, we have established ourselves as the preeminent distributor of German manufactured motorhomes in New Zealand, and so far have been focusing on the long established Bürstner brand.

SmartRV CEO Michael Becker says he was delighted with the opportunity to grow the product portfolio by adding an entry-level range with the hallmarks of European craftsmanship.

“We partnered with the Erwin Hymer Group, Europe’s largest motorhome and caravan manufacturing group five years ago when we were awarded the distributorship of Bürstner, their biggest brand,” says Michael Becker. “The addition of Carado is a big vote of confidence from Erwin Hymer Group and a commitment to New Zealand as an important market.”

The award-winning Carado brand is well known for delivering the same quality and functionality as other Erwin Hymer Group brands but with a focus on value for money. The state-of-the-art manufacturing facility near Dresden uses a highly skilled workforce and up-to-date manufacturing processes including the just-in-time production system pioneered by Toyota to produce recreational vehicles built to the highest standards. This focus on quality has seen these vehicles retain their value over time.

SmartRV’s sister company Wilderness Motorhomes has added several Carado models to its rental fleet for this summer which will give you the option to purchase sharply priced ex-rental Carados in the very near future. It also gives you a chance to try out the Carados for yourself, before you buy one.

We have built our reputation on having the best after sales service in the industry, staying true to our words, we will carry a large selection of Carado parts to supply both Wilderness rentals and our SmartRV retail customers.

The new Carado models will be available from September with the official launch taking place at SmartRV’s Oktoberfest Open Day on Saturday 17 October. For more information call SmartRV on 0800 891 309.
