2020 Schedule

FRIDAY ONLY - 10.00am - Marty's Panel & Paint - Your Motorhomes: 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.
