Tourism Holdings Limited (THL) steps up in health and safety

With moving vehicles as the biggest health and safety risk in the RV industry, peace of mind is given by THL who will enforce random safety inspections of their global commercial fleet

Tourism Holdings Limited (THL)—the largest operator of motorhomes globally—has stepped up their commitment to health and safety even further by seeking and introducing independent and random safety inspections of their global commercial fleet.


Inspections will be undertaken by Vehicle Inspection New Zealand Ltd (VINZ) across New Zealand, Australia, the US, and the UK.  

"Quite simply, in the RV industry, the single biggest health and safety risk is moving vehicles," THL CEO Grant Webster says. "We do all we can to ensure the safety of our fleet, giving customers peace of mind along with other road users. This initiative is part of our continued commitment to having the safest fleet of commercial motorhomes on the road, both in New Zealand and around the world."  

VINZ will carry out the inspections on-site at THL facilities. The independent and randomly selected tests will form part of quality control checks as of next month, alongside already entrenched processes, including complete vehicle service and checks by the on-site mechanic team as each camper is returned and before it leaves the site. Vehicles rented through Mighway, THL’s peer-to-peer campervan hire company, will also be a part of the independent testing.
