No matter where you’ve been this summer, chances are you’ve noticed lots of motorhomes and caravans on the road.
Kiwis may not be able to travel overseas right now, but we’re making up for it by enjoying everything in our own beautiful country and cementing the fact that motorhoming is one of the very best ways to enjoy it.
That’s why 19-21 March is perfect timing for the Covi SuperShow to be back at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane, Auckland. It’s the largest show of its type in New Zealand and the ultimate place to see the latest and greatest vehicles under one roof, discover the many accessories available to make life on the road more enjoyable, and get insider info at free seminars on a wide range of subjects.
As with all previous shows, there will be some things about 2021’s event that will be very familiar – a fantastic grand prize, no reserve auction, and cashback offer for people who buy a vehicle during the show.
THE GRAND PRIZE
The Covi SuperShow has become known for its fantastic grand prizes. The 2021 show will be no different. This year we have teamed up with the good people at the RV Super Centre and will be giving away the use of a KEA Breeze motorhome for 12 months. See supershow.co.nz for all the terms and conditions.
Don’t worry if you already have a motorhome, you will be able to transfer it to those friends of yours that have always wanted to get a motorhome but have never taken the plunge. The motorhome will come fully stocked with linen, crockery, pots and pans so you can just get straight out on the road and start exploring New Zealand.
The KEA Breeze is proudly made in New Zealand and features a rear lounge and a drop-down electric bed. This 4-berth motorhome is fully self-contained and will offer the lucky winner a great opportunity to explore all corners of New Zealand in both comfort and style.
All you have to do to win this great prize is to buy a ticket to the show, collect the seven stamps at the stamping booths and you are in to win. And if you purchase your ticket online you will get a bonus entry into the draw. Terms and conditions apply
NO RESERVE AUCTION
Once again, we will be auctioning a brand new Benimar motorhome in conjunction with one of New Zealand’s iconic motorhome companies, TrailLite. The model will be revealed just before the show. But be assured that it will be one of the top selling models from one of New Zealand’s top selling brands.
The Covid restrictions on overseas travel have seen a huge boom in the sales of motorhomes and caravans. In some cases it is difficult to find a vehicle that does not have a delivery time of a month or more. This Benimar will be ready for collection in the week following the show. So if you are struggling to find a motorhome to enjoy now, this could be the vehicle for you. Head along to TrailLite at stand 301 in Hall 3, or check out the auction vehicle in the outdoor food court.
The Benimar will go under the hammer at NO RESERVE at 12noon on Saturday 20 March, ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland.
THE COVI SUPERSHOW RALLY
Once again, you can stay at the rally at Ellerslie Racecourse for free and there is no need to pre-register. Pets are welcome (they can’t come to the show but you can exercise them at the rally on a lead). There will be free buses to the show, and dining and bar facilities available. Before you arrive however, bear in mind there are no water or dump station facilities available at the rally.
This year you can buy show tickets online at supershow.co.nz. The cost is $16 per adult for a day pass, or $25 for a multiple day pass. Children aged under 16 are free.
Buy your tickets ahead of the show and not only will you get the bonus entry into the Grand Prize Draw but you will automatically go in the draw to win a fantastic City-X e-bike from Bionic Bikes.
The City-X SensorDrive model is designed to perform both in the city and on the trails. It has a step through unisex frame design, making it easy to get on and off, and the handlebars allow multiple points of adjustment, ensuring a good fit to the rider. It features Bionic’s SensorDrive system, giving smooth power, the ultimate in safe handling and the natural feel of a mid-drive from a hub drive motor. It’s perfect for the back of the motorhome or caravan.
Here’s how it works. Head to supershow.co.nz, click the type of show e-ticket you are after and follow the prompts. Once you have completed the purchase, you’ll receive an email receipt and a link to download your e-tickets. Print the e-ticket off and bring it to the gate at the Covi SuperShow. There you will be given your passport ticket which will allow you to collect the stamps needed to enter the Grand Prize draw. Once you have collected stamps from the kiosks around the show, you will be given another bonus entry into the Grand Prize draw.
At the Covi SuperShow we are very much aware that the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the nature of big events and the safety of both visitors and exhibitors is very important to us.
All Government guidelines will be closely followed, and additional measures have been implemented to keep everyone safe. Please ensure that you scan in using your Covid Tracer App.
It doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned motorhomer or caravanner, new to the lifestyle, or just testing the waters – there is always something to learn. At the Covi SuperShow we host a series of seminars in conjunction with TrailLite to help you enjoy your life on the road.
