Welcome to the winter specialists!

The Allgäu in Southern Germany is the location for the Dethleffs’ headquarters since 1931 – is a popular winter destination with its long winters and abundance of snow.
It is therefore hardly surprising that Dethleffs has earned a reputation as a true winter expert. You can recognise this from standard features such as the Dethleffs AirPlus overhead-locker ventilation and our particularly well-insulated living areas; but also, from the fact that you can order most models with comfortable warm-water heating with separate heating circuits, internal wastewater tanks and optional flush fitting windows.
Experience winter camping in a new light – with winterised vehicle technology from Dethleffs, the winter specialists.

Dethleffs knows how to make your dream of winter camping come true – excellent wall insulation, highly breathable materials and good ventilation all ensure an excellent indoor climate. Where possible, we design the layout with the heater in the living area to ensure better heat distribution. In addition, all vehicles rely on a well-thought-out design and innovative technology based on over 89 years of experience in Dethleffs’ leisure vehicle construction. If a warm and cosy winter holiday is considered, all Dethleffs winterproof motorhomes with double floors and warm-water heating are a superb option – as are the Winter Comfort Packages with warm-air heating.

Safety for motorhomes

ESP (electronic stabilizing system) – controls the driving direction of the vehicle and the movements of the wheels. If required, especially in dangerous situations it will be activated, brakes the single wheels or slows down the speed of the vehicle by performance reduction. Consequently, it safely keeps the vehicle on track.

Other important driving assistance system:

  • ASR (anti slip Regulation) – prevents the wheels from spinning when starting on a slope
  • Hill Holder – assists the driver when starting on a slope
  • HBA (hydraulic brake assistance) – emergency brake assistance. The system recognizes an emergency stop and reinforces the pressure on the pedal, if necessary
  • Roll-over mitigation – reduces snaking movements and improves the stability in curves
  • Hill Descent Control – helps to maintain a desired speed on steep descents (up to max. 30 km/h), without constantly having to brake. The driver can focus completely on steering (activated with a button on the dashboard).
  • 3-point safety belt – All registered seats to driving direction are equipped with a 3-point safety belt and steady headrests same as in car industry

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.
