New TV series showcases the best of motorhoming in New Zealand

Head off the beaten track and discover what makes New Zealand the ideal place to experience the motorhoming lifestyle in a new show debuting on Choice TV on Saturday, October 13th.

RV Explorers follows the adventures of Anne Marie and Jonathon, a new motorhoming couple who travel through the towns and regions of New Zealand, experiencing what each area has to offer, and swapping stories with other motorhomers they meet along the way.

The six-episode series is a joint production between Spot on Publications (publishers of The Motor Caravanner magazine) and Calcomm Productions. Executive Producer Brent Gillies says the NZMCA-endorsed programme aims to promote the motorhoming lifestyle, and encourage people off the beaten track to areas that don’t traditionally get time in the spotlight.

Motor caravanning is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing recreational activities and the programme will appeal both to those who are new to the activity, and those who have been travelling for years.  Each episode showcases a different vehicle in the environment it was designed for.

“It’s about showing off New Zealand and exploring the motorhoming lifestyle, “says Brent. “There’s guidance for those who are new to the lifestyle, and ideas on new places to visit for existing motorhomers. It’s also a way of helping those regions that are fantastic destinations, but don’t necessarily get the publicity.”

Viewers can expect everything from being wowed by the natural wonder of the Far North’s Wairere Boulders, to quad biking in Kaikoura, exploring the Bridge to Nowhere in the far reaches of the Whanganui River, and luxuriating in the warmth of the Coromandel’s Lost Springs.

“We’re sharing what we have discovered, as motorhomers and caravanners, and encouraging people to get out and see what New Zealand has to offer.”
