2019 Schedule

10.00am - Your Motorhome - Things you should know

For a number of years, we have been seeing new Motorhomes deteriorate and fade really quickly, with older campervans having poorly fitted accessories which are causing lots of  internal  and structural damage. This seminar will give you some guidance on how to look after your motorhome, campervan or caravan and what to look for when buying new or second hand. I will advise on how you can protect your very valuable asset from our harmful UV rays. One of the problems with most of the newer imported RVs is that some are manufactured using old gelcoat technology instead of UV resistant gelcoat or paint which would give you the protection needed for our harsh NZ sun. I will also cover the importance of washing your RV to further protect it.

10.45am - NZMCA Data: Getting connected on the road

This seminar walks you through everything you need to know about how to set up and use NZMCA Data, the motorhome and caravan broadband for NZMCA members.

Wireless Nation will also talk about exciting new developments on connectivity for members, and answer any questions you may have.

11.30am - Let Us Get You "Off the Beaten Track"

Off The Beaten Track connects holiday makers with a taste of authentic rural New Zealand that is delivered through undiscovered locations and experiences that are privately owned.

In our opinion, holidays are best enjoyed Off the Beaten Track, where we provide access to some of New Zealand’s best kept secret locations and experiences.
