CCIA NSW awards are eagerly sought and in accepting the award for Best Motorhome Manufacturer, Avida’s CEO Ben Binns, praised the enthusiasm and professionalism of Avida team for their passion and involvement in the business.

Avida, late in 2013 released a range of caravans called Sapphire and recently expanded their caravan range with the release of their Topaz models.

In addition, Avida continue to stay at the forefront of motorhome technology with the release last month of the all new Menindee motorhome at the Adelaide Caravan and Camping Show, together with a new extremely well priced entry level motorhome called the Avida Leura.
