The new TrailLite models will be launched at the Covi Show in Auckland

TrailLite has launched a series of short announcements as they transition into 2017. 

In our last issue, we mentioned that Christchurch would soon be securing a new bigger and better branch packed with all of TrailLite’s popular motorhomes including the Bailey UK and Rangefinder caravan.

From April 2017, the southern branch will be heading to 61 Hayton Rd, Wigram, Christchurch.

In another announcement, the new 2017 TrailLite model was introduced, which is now ready and waiting for its launch at the Covi Show in Auckland from March 17 to 19. The 2017 TrailLite came from months of planning and product design as well as consultation with TrailLite customers.

Shaun Newman, general manager of TrailLite, says the new models and floorplans are a result of customer feedback, innovation, and the company’s procedures around continual improvement.

"Some of my favorite upgrades include the facilities management locker, a space to house all your waste management accessories freeing up other locker space for the fun stuff. While it’s not a glamorous upgrade like the interior colour schemes and the kitchen and bathroom redesigns, it demonstrates our commitment to thinking outside the box and our commitment to making holidaying in a TrailLite as easy and user friendly as it can be.

"Another favorite is the central facilities master switching touchscreen display unit—technology to keep TrailLite and our customers ahead of the game when it comes to revolutionary innovations," Shaun says.

Not only are there new upgrades but also new floor plans have been added to the range including a whole wall slide out to maximise space and shorter Matakana floor plan at only 7.1 metres.
