Looking for a quality motorhome and want to make your money go further? Here are five great reasons to consider buying a used motorhome from our SmartRV range.

1. Value for money

Buying a used motorhome from SmartRV is a more affordable way of getting a top quality German RV, as we offer trusted brands Bürstner and Carado in our used vehicle range. Both brands come from renowned German manufacturer Erwin Hymer Group and are known for maintaining great resale value.

2. Proven track record

Our used motorhomes come from our sister company Wilderness Motorhomes, where they have spent a maximum of three years as part of the rental fleet. During this time, they have proven their safety and reliability on New Zealand roads. They also undergo regular comprehensive servicing that is well above industry standards, as maintenance is carried out every time a motorhome returns to the Wilderness bases in Auckland or Christchurch.

3. Full refurbishment and mechanical checks

Each used motorhome undergoes refurbishment and mechanical checks when it is prepared for sale. This includes fixing any panel work dents or scrapes and adding new decals if required. Inside, any scratches are repaired, the condition of the mattresses is assessed and other areas may be reupholstered. Blinds and fly screens are installed and the motorhomes then undergo full mechanical checks with our expert in-house service team, who also ensure there is minimum 50% tread on the tyres. Each used motorhome comes with a warranty and the ongoing support of SmartRV’s expert mechanical and After Sales teams.

4. Try before you buy

If you’re looking to buy a particular Bürstner or Carado model, it could well be on the Wilderness rental fleet, meaning you could book it for a few days to get a really good idea of whether it’s the right motorhome for you. Wilderness Motorhomes offers a special ‘Try Before You Buy’ deal, in which the cost of your first three days' rental is taken off the price of the motorhome purchase*.

5. The SmartRV Difference

Whether you buy new or used, buying a motorhome from SmartRV means you will enjoy unparalleled service long after your purchase. We have a dedicated After Sales team only too happy to help with advice on how to upgrade or get the best out of your motorhome.

We set ourselves apart from other motorhome dealers in New Zealand with our premium specialist Repair Centres in Auckland and Christchurch too. Here, teams of skilled European-trained mechanics offer a full range of services for all European-made RVs and will help ensure your motorhome is always ready for adventure.
