"New Zealand is the perfect place to explore by motorhome," Coastal Motorhomes’ co-owner Paul Farrell says. "And being able to do so in one that has been built to meet the owners’ exact needs makes it all the more enjoyable."

As one of only a few motorhome builders in New Zealand, Coastal Motorhomes offers clients a personalised service that allows them to add a unique touch to the design process.

"Our manufacturing techniques have been refined over time since the first Coastal motorhome rolled out the door," Paul says. "We build with the best quality materials and appliances to produce a strong, durable New Zealand motorhome that is built to last." Owners Faye and Bruce from Whakatane explain that their Coastal motorhome ticked many boxes.

"We have just returned from a six-week trip to the South Island and found the Coastal motorhome met our needs perfectly. We were approached by several people asking us about our motorhome while travelling around and most knew about Coastal and the quality of their product.

"The motorhome has been built to a very high standard of workmanship and the internal finish with its wood grain trim makes this a superior looking motorhome. This is a credit to the building team."

Workshop and aftersales service


With a three-bay workshop for repairs, maintenance, and installations, along with a team of highly experienced technicians, Coastal Motorhomes provide comprehensive service for every make of caravan and motorhome.

"We pretty much do it all. From minor cabinetry touch-ups to installing satellites, fridges, solar panels, and other creature comforts," Paul says.

"We are also experienced in the service and repair of the electric braking systems found in all Australian caravans. And because we have the necessary parts on hand, plus the right tools and a sound understanding of motorhome electrical units, our customers know the job will be done efficiently and professionally," he says.

Coastal can also take care of all your self-containment needs. With certified self-containment officers on hand, they can sort everything from the plumbing work to the NZMCA certification.

Much of the team’s knowledge has come from many years of fault finding and repair work. "It’s the type of experience that can’t really be taught. Rather it comes from being challenged with every imaginable scenario within a motorhome," Paul says.
