About Us

SmartRV is a family-owned company and New Zealand’s biggest importer of recreational vehicles direct from Europe. Based in Auckland and Christchurch, we offer new and used motorhomes and caravans manufactured by the world-renowned Erwin Hymer Group, Europe’s largest manufacturer of motorhomes and caravans.

SmartRV was founded in 2011 by Michael Becker, a respected name in the motorhome industry and long-time supporter of New Zealand tourism. Michael co-founded KEA Campers in 1995 and is current co-owner of SmartRV’s sister company Wilderness Motorhomes, a highly regarded motorhome rental company in New Zealand.

Michael created SmartRV to fill a gap in the New Zealand market for premium European designed and built motorhomes, offering discerning Kiwis a range of top-end German vehicles. In 2013, he teamed up with entrepreneur John Managh and John’s sister Mary Hamilton, Michael’s partners in Wilderness Motorhomes, to grow the fledgling SmartRV.

Michael, John and Mary together with a dedicated and passionate team have taken that same commitment to customer satisfaction for which Wilderness Motorhomes is renowned, and applied it to SmartRV.
