New level of premium motorhomes to be launched at Covi SuperShow

8th March 2017

SmartRV ushers in the New Year with a game-changer 

The Covi Motorhome, Caravan & Outdoor SuperShow that starts in Auckland next Friday (March 17) at the ASB Showgrounds will host SmartRV’s launch of the trend-setting HYMER line-up of premium motorhomes and caravans.  


From its trailblazing beginnings in Germany in the 1950s, Hymer has become a leader in classic European motorhomes, pioneering a tradition of comfort, luxury and safety that sets the benchmark for excellence. Hymer’s four divisions also make caravans, cars, parts and accessories and employ about 1,400 people at the company’s Bad Waldsee site; and two of the company’s top executives - Managing Director Bernhard Kibler and Export Manager Andrea Kibler – are travelling from Germany to support the launch.


“The Hymer brand brings a classic element to our range,” John Managh, SmartRV’s Managing Director, says. “It will satisfy the most discerning traveller looking for top quality and long-lasting value. There’s also a 4-wheel drive and a rear wheel drive option for serious exploring.”   


The four Hymer models set to be unveiled at the Covi SuperShow are:

  • Hymer ML-T 580 4x4 (motorhome on a Mercedes four-wheel drive chassis),
  • Hymermobil StarLine 680 (motorhome on a Mercedes rear-wheel drive chassis),
  • Hymermobil StarLine 690 (motorhome on a Mercedes rear-wheel drive chassis),
  • Eriba Touring Triton 420 (caravan).

Following the launch, Mr Kibler is looking forward to touring New Zealand in a Wilderness rental motorhome from SmartRV’s sister company. 


Covi SuperShow General Manager Brent Gilles said the show, now in its seventh year, is the only show in New Zealand where all the country’s major motorhome and caravan brands are on display, with many of them exhibiting exclusively and like Hymer, launching new models for 2017 at the show.


“Along with Hymer there are some other exciting new brands entering the market that will be unveiled to the public for the first time at the show,” he said. “It really is exciting; with all the country’s major players in attendance, it’s going to be the biggest motorhome and caravan industry showcase ever.”
