New Zealand’s leading leisure vehicle manufacturer and retailer, TrailLite, is delighted to partner with Erwin Hymer Group to bring Elddis caravans, campervans and motorhomes to the New Zealand market.

Although the NZ leisure vehicle giant launched their own TrailLite-built caravan in 2021, with the ‘100 Series’ TrailLite caravan, they saw the need to find an international caravan brand that supported the company’s ‘something for everyone’ ethos.

Like TrailLite, Elddis started as a caravan manufacturer some six decades ago and ever since has grown their range, expertise, quality and construction methodology across all the products they manufacture – a synergy that appealed to both companies.

TrailLite Managing Director Adam Newman explain the appeal of Elddis: “The extensive range, including motorhomes, campervans and caravans, and the price-to-value ratio of the Elddis products fits perfectly within our portfolio requirements.

“We wanted a brand that complimented our expanding NZ-built and international range of motorhomes and caravans.

“It had to be something with a solid commitment to quality, a range and brand that fits in with the TrailLite family well.

“It’s essential that when we commit to a new brand under the TrailLite umbrella, we believe in the company’s design and construction ethos and that we can fully integrate it into our commitment to the whole TrailLite customer experience.

“Acquiring the Elddis brand allows us to completely own the whole end-to-end experience for our customers and we’re proud to now be the sole distributor and retailer of Elddis products in New Zealand,” says Adam.

This development comes after TrailLite’s acquisition of RV Leisure in Nelson, New Zealand. RV Leisure has been a loyal Elddis retailer and service centre for the past decade, but with the team looking forward to enjoying their well-earned retirement, they were determined to pass the baton to safe hands.

“To move on wasn’t an easy decision for us. However, the news was received well by Erwin Hymer Group, who are delighted to have TrailLite join their dealer network to be the sole distributor and retailer of Elddis product here in New Zealand,” explains Mike Irvine, RV Leisure.

“Collectively, we have every confidence in TrailLite’s ability to take Elddis to new heights here in New Zealand with the enthusiasm and professionalism they display in their existing operations.

“Their aftersales service and facilities will only enhance support coverage for our current Elddis customers and new ones alike.

“RV Leisure could think of no one better to promote and support this brand. TrailLite was the obvious choice. As we move on, we are very comfortable knowing Elddis will be in good hands with the TrailLite team,” explains Mike.
