About Us

SmartRV was launched in 2011 when motorhome industry legend Michael Becker (co-founder of Kea Campers and current co-owner of Wilderness Motorhomes) saw an opportunity to bring top-end German motorhomes to New Zealand. Michael noticed that retiring baby boomers were hitting the roads in their thousands looking to explore the most beautiful country in the world. His mission was to offer discerning Kiwis a range of cleverly designed and masterfully built European motorhomes and caravans like they hadn't seen before.

In 2013, Michael teamed up with entrepreneur John Managh and his sister Mary Hamilton, his partners in Wilderness Motorhomes to grow the fledgling SmartRV. Wilderness is New Zealand’s leading privately owned motorhome rental company. Since its inception in 2004, Wilderness has forged a reputation for putting the customer first.

Together, Michael, John, and Mary have taken that same commitment to customer satisfaction that earned Wilderness numerous awards and applied it to SmartRV. Now SmartRV has dozens of happy customers all over New Zealand.
