Esperance – Third Avida Owner

We have owned two previous Winnebago’s, an Esperance and a Free Spirit and now have upgraded to our third Avida Esperance. The Iveco chassis is really nice to drive and the overall aesthetics of the house side are lovely, a real upgrade with the lighter interior.

Bruce and Judy, Pirongia NZ

Topaz – Quality Excellent

The quality of the caravan build is excellent and choosing our own colours just makes it all so special. The service we have received from the dealer has been outstanding and far ahead of the other dealers we have bought from. The closeness and location for our servicing will also be really easy for us. Look forward to many happy camping holidays with our little one and family alike.

We love the amount of windows as it gives the illusion of space and light. Plus the fact we can put extra seat belts in for our grandchildren.

Garrick, Eden VIC

Birdsville – Excellent Layout

The Birdsville has an excellent layout for a small family. We like the way the shower and toilet are separate. The cooking facilities are excellent and access to the front cab is easy. The vehicle it’s self is very easy to drive.

Brian, Burns Beach WA

I think our Leura is a very impressive piece of machinery, very sturdy, easy to handle and economical. Most suitable to the two of us

Esperance – Surpasses Other Models

With the Esperance B7944, AVIDA were able to provide a practical and functional layout, maximising useable space in an open plan, all while maintaining the ability to be driven on a Class C Licence. The choice of interior decor allows a modern design to be coupled with the chosen exterior. The Iveco Daily chassis provides excellent road holding and stability when parked that surpasses other models.

Andrew and Miriam, Forest Hill, NSW

Tony and Nanette, Yarralumla, ACT

Esperance – Classy & Shiny

The Avida Esperance looks classy & shiny. With the slide out there is so much room! Plenty of overhead cupboards & underbed storage. Adventures ahead with all the trimmings!

Lisa, Cape Woolamai, VIC

Emerald – Loving our new Avida Emerald

We recently picked up our pre-owned Avida Emerald and took her on her inaugural run to the bush.  We are absolutely delighted with this little van – tows well, is extremely comfortable to sleep in and has all the necessary bells and whistles to make caravan holidaying a very pleasant experience.  Our first run was to a remote camping site at Mount Seaview Resort, west of Wauchope.  The late afternoon drive up there was easy, and we had no problems negotiating the final dirt road leading to the back of the property, and managed to get set up on our riverbank site just before dark.  No rain for ages, so thought we’d be safe enough down there beside the headwaters of the Hastings River!  In the morning the beauty of the place was revealed – crystal clear waters flowing across beautiful rocky banks, cattle grazing nearby, birds chirping, blue hills in the distance, and logs available for a comforting camp fire.  Thanks to our son for finding this place, and for sharing it with us for his birthday!

Graham and Judy – Travelling Australia

Longreach – Six Years On

Just to let you know that we are going around Australia again in our beautiful Avida Longreach.  We (Longreach and us) are getting compliments almost everyday.  People are telling us that the motorhome is beautiful and looks as new (is nearly six year old). Very often we are happy to show people inside and again we are getting very positive comments.

Anya and Adam – Travelling Australia

Esperance – Blown away

Peter, Emerald Beach NSW

Longreach – Incredible Horse Power

The Longreach is a really good vehicle to drive and has incredible horse power. Our diesel heater and air conditioning is magnificent.

John, Stawell Vic

Birdsville – Brilliant Motorhome

Would like to thank everyone at Avida for a brilliant motorhome. I love the way the upper cupboards are now flush with no handles and how the toilet is now placed to the side so when the door is open, it is not in view. It’s magic how the blue lighting is on prior to turning on the lights, it gives a nice atmosphere through the home.

Dean, Reid SA

Ceduna – Comfort and Quality Exeeded

Very happy with our upgrade – the comfort and quality exceeds our expectation and we are enjoying our on road experience all ready.

The Esperance is a purpose built Motorhome which is quite economical and its features are definitely a home away for us.

Geoff and Celia, Erina NSW

Birdsville – Very Professional

Picked the vehicle, Birdsville, was impressed with options and quality available. Was given detailed explanations from 100 questions. Visited the factory and if we had of had any doubts on our choice of vehicle just that alone would have made our mind up. Very professional and proud of their products which shows in their salesmanship. Would highly recommend this experience with Avida as was stress free and uncomplicated. Loving our Birdsville.

Kevin and Christine, South Kolan, Qld

Leura – Great Cross Ventilation

Our new Leura is easy to drive. We love the louver windows, they are great for cross ventilation as we do not like air-conditioning and it has a lovely bathroom.

Zofia and Philip, Ararat Vic

Birdsville – Pleasure to Drive

We absolutely love our Avida Birdsville, only had it for 2 weeks but are very happy. The slide out gives us so much more room and it’s a pleasure to drive.

Gregory and Cherryle, Granton, Tas

Ceduna – Love the Multi Terrain Option

Great layout in the Ceduna and the Multi-Terrain option was very beneficial comparing to other brands viewed in the camp grounds so far.

Richard, Marmion WA

Topaz – Happy to recommend Avida

We are really enjoying our Topaz, the space and storage is fantastic, and all the extras we had fitted are all working really well. Over all we are extremely pleased with our purchase, and very happy to recommend Avida.

Merv and Ronda, Otumoetai, New Zealand

Birdsville – 10/10 For us

We have been to every Avida show. We have looked at other brands but Avida was always the stand out in the crowd. We have been waiting for retirement to purchase a Birdsville and finally have one. Another plus is the vehicle is a wonderful medium for both our heights with driving as I am 6.3 and my wife is 5.3.  With looking at the Birdsville over the years we have seen it just keeps getting better and better even though we didn’t think  it was possible. It is definitely a 10/10 for us.

Arnold and Robin, Mudgee NSW

Birdsville – Enjoy the drive

We are very satisfied with the outfit and enjoy driving it around.

Kneale and Pat, Tarangaba QLD

Esperance – Absolutely Delighted

I had been searching for some time to find a motorhome with a great layout that wasn’t consumed with a wooden veneer finish. The Avida Esperance C7932SL has finally arrived with an interior that looks like a modern home, and better still you can customise the style and colours to suit you. The veneer that remains is now more a feature. We are absolutely delighted with the layout, design, spaciousness and features of the Esperance, it is also fully equipped with modern appliances and easy to use technology. We have also been very impressed by the amount of storage both internally and externally. The slideout at 600mm feels like over a metre of extra space. The vehicle is simple and comfy to drive and with the Iveco 3.0l turbo diesel 8 speed automatic transmission it has plenty of power. We chose motorhoming as a way to explore all corners of the country and experience the great outdoors but we did not want to leave behind the comforts of home or the conveniences of modern living. The new Avida Esperance has ticked every box for us and we now have no excuse for not getting on the road for another exciting adventure. Well done Avida.

Jim, Dunedin, New Zealand

Wave – Premium Product

Neville, Christchurch NZ

Topaz – Far exceeded our expectations

We are extremely happy with our purchase and has far exceeded our expectations. It’s a stunning high end van, with quality finishings. We couldn’t be happier

Lee-Ann, Castle Hill NSW

Fremantle – Far more features than I expected

I’m very happy with the Avida Fremantle, I decided what I wanted and bought immediately. I didn’t let the dealer run through features as I presumed all motorhomes are roughly the same. I am pleased to say the Fremantle has more, far more features than I expected.

Ross, Springfield SA

Emerald – Great price

It was just what we were looking for – light towing, excellent features and great price.

Richard, Burleigh Waters, QLD

Esperance – Highest finish

Our new Esperance is of the highest finish and has plenty of storage and space with the large slide out.

Leslie and Therese, Marborough, QLD

Emerald – All the equipment for comfortable travel

Our Avida Emerald All Terrain is the perfect van for us. Light weight, single axle, easy to tow, but all the equipment for comfortable travel to all the regions we want to explore. The standard of manufacture and the finish seems excellent. We hope to enjoy it for years to come.

Ross, South West Rocks NSW

Topaz – Didn’t need to look any further

After looking at several brands of caravans our first step inside the Avida we knew we didn’t need to look any further due to the quality of the build, the layout and attention to detail just to name a few.

Graeme and Robin, Bay of Plenty NZ

Emerald – Quality workmanship

We are very impressed with the quality of workmanship and material used in the Emerald series caravans. We will highly recommend Avida caravans to family and friends.

We have spent 9 days travelling in NZ in the middle of winter and have found the Avida Topaz very comfortable. We wanted ‘no compromise caravanning’ and this what we’ve got.

Margaret and Brian, Marlborough, New Zealand

Esperance – Two years of reasearch, great decision

Absolutely delighted with our Avida Esperance. After almost 2 years of research, we made the right decision in purchasing this great motorhome.

Karen and Kerry, Beachport, SA

Esperance – Plenty of storage inside and out

Well finished and lovely to drive the Iveco. Plenty of storage inside and out, the overheads in the kitchen area are generous and the deep draws welcome. Lots of power points and media charging spots-GREAT.

Very roomy Avida Leura for the 2 of us travelling at will anywhere, anytime. The finish is superb & the road handling & fuel economy is excellent. Very well thought out interior layout. 10 out of 10 for this motorhome….

Rod and Carol, Blakeview, SA

Topaz – Ticked all the boxes

We have been reviewing opposition vans for some time and found the Avida brand is a cut above the rest. We purchased the 21′ CL 7052MT Topaz, this layout is so functional, roomy and just alround plush. I am on the larger size at 192cm and 122kg, Avida ticked all the boxes for us.

Allan and Roanne, Thornlands, QLD

Eyre – Sensational Vehicle

The Eyre is a sensational vehicle, perfect for our needs. It drives superbly, and after a few teething issues, meets our needs perfectly. It draws lots of attention due to its looks and features. We’re looking forward to many happy travels.

Eyre – Quality of Materials

I am so impressed by Avida Eyre that I purchased it and did not look again at there competitors. The handling, finish, quality of materials was first class, my friends were also impressed and one couple are seriously thinking of buying one. Thanks again Avida and all the staff, great job well done.

Kevin, Hilton, WA

Excellent build quality, supported by a understanding dealership and a great salesman that could not do a enough for us making the whole transaction stress free.

Graham, West Kempsey NSW

Esperance – Plenty of Storage

We love the amount of space the Esperance gives us with the Huge Slide Out and plenty of storage space.

Ronald and Jeanette, Mundoolun, QLD

Esperance – Proud to be an Esperance Owner

I must say the Motorhome is fantastic. The drive is excellent. Layout is exceptional we have travelled 2000km in 7days as I said to my wife , this is a shakedown trip to use all facilities we stayed privately , in camping grounds for the powered sites so we could test air conditioner and hot water cylinder. Every part worked well with ample hot water for 2 showers , We just love the slide out. And the bed is supurb ,the Iveco has ample power and excellent gear ratios. Pulls well on hills very quite. And excellent road holding. Even in crosswinds what can I say! It am proud to be an Esperance owner. All our friends who have looked over our special Motorhome are blown away of what is inside And for me I just love led lighting. Telly very special and they all like the quality of the leather upholstery. Also the cooker is great. The other bit was our factory visit at Emu Plains in July. To see the passion that goes into these motor homes. Reinforced that I had made the right choice , not to say my grandchildren have tried the above cab bed and given it the thumbs up. They are 5 and 3 years old so Future Avida campers in years to come. Well done Team, I salute you.

Gordon and Patricia, New Zealand

Birdsville – Friendly Support

My Birdsville is performing very well as my wife and myself tour New Zealand in a very relaxed mode. With your produced Motorhome and the complete help and friendly service I cannot help but give my strongest recommendation to any person wishing to purchase.

Kindest regards Peter Hamilton

Longreach – Care Factor

Hi Chris,

Just had to send you a few words of thanks for all the hard work and care you put into our new customised Avida Motorhome.

From day one of placing our order and right through to final handover day, The “ Care Factor “ and professionalism that was displayed left us with full trust in all that you would do and that nothing was too much to ask for you. If you could do it you would and you did. Everything we asked for was included in the completed build.

As soon as we walked into the motorhome for the first time we knew we had made the right decision, it exceeded our expectations! All of our family and friends have been equally amazed and have commented on the design, inclusions and quality, and now realise why we were prepared to wait for it to be made, rather than go to one of the dealerships where you can drive away with one on the day.

Our expectations that were already high have been exceeded and we are exceptionally happy with our Avida Longreach.

You should be extremely proud of the respectable service attitude that distinguishes especially you but also your business and your staff from the rest of the industry.

We would unreservedly recommend your company and are great advocates for Hinterland Motorhomes and Avida as we were greatly impressed from the very beginning with how well we were looked after exceptionally well not only by yourself but all of your team.

Kindest Regards Tom and Rhonda

Esperance – No regrets

We purchased a Esperance new in Nov 2011 and absolutely love it. It has the slide out in the living area and what a difference it makes. June last year we also purchased a Suzuki Vitara for a tow vehicle which I also use for travelling to work. It was a huge step for us as we had not even owned a caravan but we have no regrets.

Christine Eagleton

Birdsville – Congratulations

As a fairly new owner of a Birdsville Elite congratulations on winning your appeal in the High Court.

We are very happy with our purchase and are finding out all the time meeting owners of other brands how lucky we are to have a Winnebago.

Go Avida you are GOOD go, go, go…….

Thank you and congratulations for holding firm to the family’s long history.

Best wishes to a great future Graeme

It’s great to see an Aussie company take on the big guys and win. Good luck going into the future,

Cheers, Faye Gibson

Thank You Avida

I am so happy I bought from Avida. We are currently touring FNQ (far north Queensland), in our Alpine. On a leg from Bowen to Mission Beach, we stopped in Townsville for a wee break for our 4 legged children. I did my usual walk around inspection of my rig and trailer and found a significant safety issue with the motor home and its ability to tow the trailer. I immediately contacted Avida assist. They were very helpful and thorough, asking if the vehicle needed towing etc. They gave me the address of the local Avida dealer and we slowly, at 20kph, made our way there. The fix was beyond the dealers resources in Townsville, so Leo (Manager) contacted Avida in Emu Plains. Photos were taken and within 45 minutes we were on our way with the information from Patrick (Emu Plains) that he was on the job to see if there was anyone local, who had the skills, could fix our problem. First thing the next day Patrick call me with a company who could do the job. Within 20 hours of our contacting Avida assist, and subsequently Avida, we were booked in for repairs, the very next day, Wednesday.

What can I say. Avida has ticked all the right boxes in a very thoughtful and professional manner. I will always be confident to influence people to buy from Avida, the after sales assistance is fantastic, and a credit to Avida’s customer focus and policies.

Thank you so much Laurie and Barbara Simpson

Motorhome Mechanicals

Regarding the mechanical breakdown of my motorhome in February 2011 at Wamberal NSW. I wish to extend my greatest appreciation to the Avida staff and management in their prompt assistance and feed back in getting my motorhome repaired and back on the road. This is my third Avida motorhome I have owned since 2002 and travelled many kms throughout Australia including Tasmania. Over this period I have had several mechanical and electrical problems but after contacting either Emu Plains or the local dealership service department they have fixed my request or directed me the nearest service dealer. If you could pass on my comments to all those involved in service and warranty within your organisation.

Again Thank You, Howard Fleming

Memo of congratulations

Just a note to say how pleased we are with our Alpine. It has been such a nice comfortable motorhome to travel this beautiful country of ours. We are surprised to find it is unusual if we are not personally approached weekly by a stranger expressing admiration for this motorhome when on the road.

The Avida dealer “Country Motor” whom we purchased thru were exemplary on all quadrants of marketing and servicing and I would be surprised if you had a marketing agency exceeding the standards that they work to.

In April this year we were referred back to your factory for some warranty work and we could not have wished for more obliging and friendly service and attention from all of the Avida staff dealt with. The warranty repairs necessitated 2 nights overnight stay in the factory car park so we also had the opportunity to speak with workshop staff as they came and went and again we were impressed with the attitudes and outlooks of the folk behind the scene.

You have a winning product and the backup to go with it.

Regards, Bernie & May Koitka

Customer appreciation for service that your staff have provided

June and I wish to express our very sincere appreciation for the service that GAVIN (spare parts) provided to us, when we needed to replace the clips on our safety net over the cabin. Guess whose fault it was that this accident happened, it was my fault completely, because I made a grab for it when I fell off the ladder while I was cleaning out the van after a recent trip. Gavin really put in a great effort for us so we were not left with a safety net in future trips.

This is not the first time that your staff have provided us with exemplary service, as your records will show. We have a son in the Navy, stationed in Sydney, and we went over to mind his house, dogs and garden while he was on his honeymoon, and the motor home was stored in the holding compound at the “Randwick military barracks” which was regarded as secure storage, but while they were on their honeymoon thieves broke into the compound and did a lot of damage to our motor home as well as the other servicemen’s property stored there while they were serving overseas.

Our motor home had to be transported up to your business on the back of a flat top tow truck, where Ken took over and he and the staff did a restoration that was top grade. When we got back to Sydney and arrived up to pick it up we were absolutely amazed at what a wonderful job had been done. We wrote to you at that time to also express our sincere appreciation. It does not surprise us that Avida is the number one in all aspects of not only building motor homes but equally in customer relations, we are not just a statistic that fades into oblivion once we pay the bill. Buying an Avida is a long term relationship.

Yours sincerely, June & Ross Parkinson
