Why buy a motorhome?



Motorhomes enable freedom. New Zealand is a country absolutely brimming with world-class beaches, piercing mountains, lush forests, rushing rivers and tranquil lakes. Exploring this incredible country by motorhome lets you get up close and personal. You’ll gain the freedom of exploring quiet roads and secluded bays at your leisure, perhaps staying the night to watch the sunset from a couple of deckchairs, with all your creature comforts within reach. This way of travelling is so different to moving between motels.

There’s also something of a motorhome family that you are buying into at the same time. There’s no other way of seeing the country that offers you the same connection to a warm, like-minded community of other motorhome owners, where help is always at hand.

But is it for you? The beauty of our one-stop-shop of Zion Motorhomes is you can try this way of life by renting one of our premium European models. If it’s right for you, only then move forward with the idea of purchasing, and you can even buy the same model brand new (not many motorhome sellers stock the same type of models for renting and selling).

The decision to buy a motorhome can be very overwhelming. So many options, so many brands, so many layouts: Separate toilet or combined compartment, front and rear-wheel drive, Mercedes or Fiat chassis – what is right for you?

Our team is not here to talk you into a purchase. We are here to accompany you on this wonderful ownership journey. To lend you a hand when you need one and stand back when you want to explore options at your own time. We strive to be there to answer any questions you might have and give advice and recommendations when you would like to hear them. With us you become part of the family – a connection to treasure. A bond to cherish for many years to come. A friend and expert you can contact and rely on when it matters.

We will not only open our knowledge to you but connect you with like-minded people and ZION motorhome owners that can provide unique valuable insights to living and owning a Luxury German motorhome that not even we can give the same way.

Why not give us a try and get in touch today? We’d love to hear from you.

  • We were due for a COF, which was knocked back due to an incorrect fuel cap.The NZ agents of the chassis manufacturer had been unable to supply a replacement fuel cap and we were using an emergency cap. Enter Jonas and his team who even though they were closed for the Christmas break opened up and offered their assistance which enabled us to get a COF. I can’t thank Jonas and his team enough for their help, going the extra mile & enabling us to have a summer break. With service like that to a random stranger you excel at service and am happy to recommend you to everyone looking for a MH or associated services. So grateful

  • We purchased our Dethleffs Esprit in 2019 we love our Motorhome. Jonas helped us a lot with decisions we needed to make on models and interior, always making himself available to answer our questions. The after sales service is great!! we have added extras at point of sale and after, making living in our Motorhome comfortable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Zion Motorhomes for sales and service.

  • We highly recommend Jonas and the team at Zion Motorhomes, their customer service is amazing, they “walk the talk” and are professional, yet friendly! The Dethleff’s motorhome we purchased from Zion was delightful, warm and comfortable, and the after sale support was awesome! Unfortunately, due to a significant change in our lives, Jonas sold our motorhome for us on our behalf, selling it in under 3 weeks for more than we expected! We have no hesitation in highly recommending Zion Motorhomes, you won’t be disappointed!

  • Thankyou Jonas and Sid for your advise in our purchase of our Frankia Platin. We have been away for a total of over 115 days in the last few months. And have only stayed in a camp sites for two nights and have not yet plugged into power. We where stranded the Waikanae estuary car park for the entire lockdown period with no problems at all. And now making our way back home. Thank you all at Zion

  • Top marks to Zion Motorhomes for their excellent communication and service. We have just had a motorhome windscreen replaced at their premises at Pokeno as the local glass fitter was not confident in doing the repair. Thank you Diane for organizing and facilitating this, it looks just like the factory fitted one. Appreciate the attention to detail.

  • This time last year we looked into having full air suspension fitted to our Dethleffs Esprit. After contacting Jonas at Zion motor homes and also looking at several other options we decided to go ahead with a full air suspension from Goldschmitt. After a delay due to COVID we had this fitted by Zion motorhome in May 2020. All LT400 certification was also arranged by them. We can say we are very happy, both with the professional service by Zion and the improvement it has made to our vehicle. It is a more comfortable ride, the auto leveling is great and now it is easy to get into our driveway as we can now raise the vehicle and that makes a big difference as we no longer have to drive in at an angle to stop scraping the muffler. It also is great when dumping the grey water as we raise the vehicle and lower it towards the dump station side and this makes it drain a lot faster.
