After many years of sailing, we decided on a change by way of touring NZ in a motorhome.  We spent some time looking at motorhomes to ascertain what would bets suit our requirements.  The  Sinfonia 65 xt stood out for us, both in terms of value and quality.  The deciding factor however was Shane – from the moment we first contacted Shane he was a delight to deal with.  In the first instance, he came in specially on a Sunday to show us the Sinfonia.  What struck us was his knowledge and passion for motorhomes, Shane took some time in explaining what we should be looking for in a motorhome.  Once we made the decision to purchase the Sinfonia he went the extra mile to ensure it was ready for us prior to Christmas even though the time frame was very tight.

In my typical bull at the gate manner I considered arranging for several extras for the Sinfonia to be fitted at the time of purchase, however Shane talked me out of doing that until we had used the motorhome for a period of time and we were certain that the extras were needed.  That epitomises Shane’s integrity in my view.

Shane has a huge infectious laugh (we enjoy cracking funnies just for the joy of hearing it) and nothing is ever too much trouble.  The after sales service has been nothing short of exceptional, I often (particularly when we first got the Sinfonia) phone Shane for advice; given his years of experience and industry knowledge, I find his recommendations invaluable.

We have grown to love our Sinfonia more and more as time has gone on and highly recommend Walkabout Motorhome Sales.  I can’t reiterate enough how service orientated and knowledgeable Shane is.  If you are looking at purchasing a motorhome, my advice would be to talk with Shane in the first instance – you won’t be disappointed.

Living in Europe, I was a bit concerned about the idea of buying a  NEW motorhome in New Zealand. I didn't know which model would suit our needs, which company would be reliable enough to buy one from, or if I could make the investment in a safe and clear transaction.
I then compared every single company selling RV's in the country, and I'm happy I chose Walkabout!
First of all, they really know their business. I got all the advice I needed, and could then make my decision : a Kyros Prestige Duo. This is, in my opinion, the perfect choice, in regard to our way of traveling! It is a very comfortable and well-equipped vehicle, that has led us safely on many roads & campsites in New Zealand.
Last but not least, Shane, the owner, is a very honest, available and ... friendly person! He helped us in several occasions, even after we had purchased the motorhome!
10/10 kiwi quality service!!

Shane thanks sincerely for meeting our wishes, to purchase this really amazing Motorhome. It was very recent that we found Walkabout Sales, and were taken with all the many features that we loved in this unit.

Shane, you have been amazing to deal with, answering our many queries regarding things we didn’t quite take on board the day we took delivery of our dream home on wheels.

We think we shall call her “Magical Magis” (Hope no-one pinches this name.)

Shane arranged for us to view one in Lyttleton, and as soon as we entered the home, we fell in love with this one. The people were amazing, so proud to show the many features, that sold it to them. What really caught our eyes, was the separate living, shower, and sleeping areas. This was a dominate feature for us. After searching  four or five years for the right one , we knew immediately, the Magis 66 is it, and much more!

It has that ‘Wow’ factor and for me especially, the house part is extremely well appointed, with a large Fridge/Freezer to house many meals we catch on the way.

Shane, from the moment we spoke firstly on the phone, until we met you, your laughing voice told us you are extremely proud to sell these models.

Pretty unbelievable was the Christmas parcel, and bottle of fine N.Z. Wine, and then two fabulous outdoor chairs, with small tables attached! O.M.G. we are blown away by the kindnesses and generosity of this company, ‘Walkabout Sales’ and won’t hesitate to highly recommend them to anyone showing an interest in the model.

Oh, hubby just loves sitting in the driving seat, and looks like the cat who got the cream, as we drive around. He is suitably impressed with the Fiat Ducato motor, and all the features this vehicle has.

Blue Tooth, aligned to our mobiles. I was amazed when a text message came through the radio, and as I accepted it, was read the message out! What vehicle has this technology? That was so funny, I had to hear that again.

In all, this has been a wonderful experience Shane, and an absolute pleasure to deal with you, we look forward to so many holidays and exploring our beautiful country, and calling to say ‘Hello’ Shane, when next in Auckland!

Thank-you Shane, and we wish you,  your wife and family, a Blessed Christmas, and a wonderful 2016!

We owned a campervan in Australia for a while and had been renting  campervans for 4 years to explore around NZ and then decided to buy one as we had many more places to go and knew what we wanted in size, layout and features. We spent six months looking at every brand available in NZ, attending motorhome shows and talking to other owners before deciding on buying from Walkabout. Their campervans ticked all the boxes and Shane was such a pleasure to deal with that it was easy to take the plunge and buy the Magis 66P . We are very happy with our decision, it suits our needs perfectly. Shane answered all our questions (pre and post sale), he is a great ambassador for the CI campervans.
Bruce & Carole - Auckland

Shane found time in his busy schedule to fit around our needs and always responded quickly to queries without ever leaving you feeling you have wasted his time. The Magis66p has a superb layout, a stylish interior and is competitively well-priced. Further, you know the price from day one. "Extras" in other dealers' eyes are included, a few minor requests were met at no charge and only significant, genuinely optional extras involved additional cost.
This is the second new motorhome we have purchased. We have had dealings with all the main players in NZ. In our opinion, Shane is easily "head of the class", a delightful man who understands customers' needs and really wants to satisfy them. We couldn't imagine working with anyone better."

Just writing to THANK YOU so much for making the purchase of our new motorhome a delight. We searched for over 6 months to find ‘The One’ , looking at both New and Used vehicles. It took some time to actually figure out what was important to US and then it was hard to stick to that as some had some of the features we were after but not others. So it was a big learning curve and we had to find patience as we did want to own our own as soon as possible, after finally making the decision to purchase one. We found that dealing with you Shane made the whole process a delight. It was fantastic to have our new motorhome delivered to us in Taupo on Valentine’s day (This one is going to be tough to top). We have owned her for a month now and already been away 3 times. You have shown us great after sales support and been extremely helpful at the end of the phone, when we have needed some advice. The Motorhome itself has worked out perfectly for us and we are looking forward to many trips away, relaxing times and fun social adventures. Thanks again for the wonderful service you provide and we would recommend dealing with WALKABOUT SALES to anyone interested in buying/renting or even after any advice.

Lee & Ken (Kinloch).

My wife and I decided to trade in our Motorhome, Shane drove down to Palmerston North, collected our old one and took it back to Auckland where he sold it on our behalf.  It sold in around 8 weeks at which point we confirmed our order for a  new one to be imported from Italy.  Shane delivered the new one to our home in Palmerston North and has been extremely accessible since then and nothing has been too much trouble.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Shane as a person of honesty, integrity and a pleasure to deal with..

To Shane and Team
I had been looking for a Motor-home for sometime to suit my needs.
From the moment I met Shane from Walkabout and he had shown me through the new 2015 Sinfonia I knew I would be purchasing one.
Even though Shane was extremely busy on the day I visited , he took the time to explain every detail and gave me plenty of information, I was able to go home and think things over which was great.
When Shane and Noleen delivered My new CI , Shane spent a couple of hours here going through everything we needed to know. Shane said he was a 100% behind the sale and was only ever a phone call away if I needed to talk to him.
I have been away in my new Motor-home and love it, it is everything Shane had said it would be.
Thank you to Shane and the team at Walkabout great people and great service

We had been seriously looking for a motorhome for the last 6 months. Having owned a variety of motorhomes over the last 12 years we knew what we were looking for, we had a budget; all we had to do was find the right vehicle!

We looked under every possible avenue, went and inspected a few that looked promising, but they did not measure up for a variety of reasons. We had been in contact with Walkabout Sales but thought they would be out of our budget range. We sent our daughter along to view their motorhomes and she came back with glowing reports about how helpful Walkabout were and she thought that one in particular would come extremely close to what we were looking for.

So we made a call to Walkabout  enquiring about Ci Motorhomes, then a trip to Auckland (cheap air seats!) and Shane met us at the airport with the vehicle. We were able to drive it back to their depot. Lovely vehicle to drive. After discussion Shane agreed to add some good extras and offered free delivery that made the difference. A flight home and a week later the vehicle was delivered to our door (just north of Wellington). Shane again went over the features and made sure we were happy with everything. Just before he left he re-stated that he was behind the sale 100% and for anything we only had to contact him.

We would whole heartedly recommend Shane and Noeleen at Walkabout Sales for helpful unpressurised deals. We are very happy having spent our first weekend away in our Brand New Ci motorhome.

We have just purchased a CI Prestige Campervan from Shane at Walkabout Sales.
Our previous motor-home was a Fuso 6 Berth also from Shane.After down-sizing our property and looking at smaller vans we didn't hesitate in making contact again.
Shane is a friendly, honest person who continues to provide advice and service long after the sale (in our case 7 years!!)
The Prestige is so compact but has ample storage and the swivel seats perfect for relaxing in. The extra wide single berths, dining area with added bonus of another smaller berth for grandchildren. Totally impressed with clever ideas to utilize space in the toilet/shower area as well.
The total layout and decor has already been admired by everyone who has viewed....we look forward to more travelling in our new van.
Once again thanks Shane for your ongoing excellent service and delivering van to Whangarei for us.
Kind Regards,

Warren and Liz James
We purchased our Motorhome from Shane a couple of months ago. We are absolutely thrilled with it.
Shane was fantastic to deal with during the purchase and still continues to help us out.
We highly recommend you visit Shane if you are thinking of buying a motorhome because he really knows his stuff.
Thanks again Shane.

Maurice and Sheryl
Walkabout Sales - Attn Shane
Just would like to say a big thankyou for the excellent service and extremely personal service we received from you on the recent purchase of our CI Motorhome from Walkabout Sales. Cannot speak highly enough of you. We would thoroughly recommend that anyone looking for a new motorhome to look no further than Walkabout. Great service, attention to detail and great communication. We had the pleasure of using our motorhome for the first time just three days after receiving it and had a great experience and just can't wait to use it again this weekend. These motorhomes are absolute luxury. Well Done.
Dawn & Grant Marshall


I couldn t have brought my  motorhome from more obliging, genuine, and continuously so, people.
they  presented the vehicle well with many extras within and also were more than willing to address
anything I felt needed a little titivating.
Anything extra I wanted doing out of the boundaries and more for my benefit they had contacts who were very efficient 
and excellent work was completed.
The vehicle has more than proved how work efficient and comfortable it is especially on the interesting and challenging roads in New Zealand.
The standard at Walkabout Sales n Rentals I would say are excellent and their after care and their warranties are very good
 covering 2 years, most are seeminly 1 year so that was very beneficial.
Many Thanks for your help and going the extra mile with no worries.
More than that continuing to do so.
Kindest Regards.

Jennie  Chaddock

After looking at many motorhomes / campervans we visited Shane at Walkabout to view their selection of homes, we were very impressed with the open plan of the 6 berth and the very high quality of the finish inside and out.
We had looked at Fiat, Mercedes and Ford but we were sold on the Mitsubishi Fuso based on our own reviewing and feedback from people in the transport industry.
Whilst we blew out our budget and bought the low km 2008 Fuso 6 berth we are very pleased with the investment and are very proud owners, you would not know that this motorhome has been a rental. The whole vehicle is in immaculate condition.
During the pre purchase period Shane replaced the front tyres without question and followed up with a new DVD player which was on order at the time of purchase.
Shane was very pleasant and professional with the entire purchasing process and follow-up , I would have no hesitation in recommending Walkabout Sales.

Don & Carol Stuart

Dear Walkabout Sales
As first time Motor home owners Beverley and I were concerned at making the right decision about our purchase. We pursued the net, looked at for sales yards and visited several private For Sale Motor homes. It wasn't until we discovered Walkabout Sales .Shane that we felt comfortable with making a decision. Shane sat down with us for over 2hrs and went through all sorts of scenarios of what we needed and how he could help, it was for us very assuring to have a real genuine person whom we had just met giving us un bias advise on such a large capital investment. We certainly have NO regrets with the purchase we subsequently made. We purchased a  Mitsubishi  Fuso 6 berth Motor home because of the décor, the roomy layout and the practicality of the whole home! (The grand kids just love the D V D).Everything Shane promised was done, even down to the delivery time and date.Since delivery we have had several text messages and emails just as follow up by Shane to see if things are all well. We have only owned our Motor home for 3 weeks and already are realising the opportunities that a Motor home gives us. Thanks Shane for selling us a product that we know will serve us well and we feel that we have made a great friend that is truly genuine. Keep up the good work,

 Edwin & Beverley Smith

We have no regrets whatsoever about buying our motorhome from Walkabout Sales and Rentals. They have proven themselves by always being friendly, ready to help us promptly with any situation that may occur, providing us with helpful advice and hints etc and taking an interest in us and our travels. They are genuinely honest, decent people to deal with and we highly recommend them. We love our motorhome.
Faye & Neil Way

 I purchased a vehicle of you on the internet.  Sight unseen from Scotland,  I wish to thank shane for his Great help and advise  , The vehicle is immaculate ,we love our motorhome ,thankyou Walkabout sales keep up the Great service -
Brian Detmar

Derek Turner
Now that our fine weather has returned, I have been able to go over the camper more thoroughly, after purchasing it at the beginning of July  08, And we have been very impressed with the overall standard, especially under the couches etc, where obviously  Walkabout  Sales  took the time to impart into the vehicle a standard of workmanship that is rarely seen these days. Again, thanks very much for your personal touch  Shane , and for the chopping board, which Lyn thinks she will frame, rather than use it.
Dave & Lyn Taylor
Having recently taken delivery of one of your latest six berth Luxury motorhomes . We wish to thank you for your excellent service in supplying it delivered almost to our home ,also in the way you have built it and fitted out the vehicle to such a very high standard. The features are almost to numerous to mention & us having had two previous motorhomes  & done extensive research we found that Walkabout Campers was best suited to our needs , especially the extensive exterior lockers , & most important for extended motorhoming . Once again we thank you for your excellent service to us -
Don Mc Millan
I have hired a motorhome of you  4 times now as i come to new Zealand to see your fabulous country , Thank you for helping me every time  , your vehicles  are so clean and and every time i have a vehicle under 3 years old , I know i am a customer and not a number , that is why i come back to see you everytime . There are a number of people i speak to in camper parks not happy with their camper , i am returning again next year  to your fabulous country , keep up the good  work Walkabout  I see you soon .
  Henk  Koning
We have just purchased a 6 berth motorhome  9/11/08 from Walkabout. Having previously owned both caravans and motorhomes were impressed with the roomy layout and amazing storage.. especially the outside lockers. Shane is informative,helpful and a super friendly guy to deal with. Our van was delivered to Whangarei and the after sales service continues. We would throughly recommend anyone wishing to buy a motor-home contact Walkabout first.
Warren & Liz James 

* Thankyou Walkabout you where the only ones that came back to me when i was looking for a campervan, so in my book that  makes WALKABOUT  The best to deal with and as for the campervan ,! We Love it ! very nice and good people to work with Regards 
David A Mckay

Hi  Walkabout Sales - Attn Shane
Martin and I would like to say a big thankyou to you for all your help and support through our journey of buying a motorhome on 15/11/08 .Your service was outstanding and always done with a smile or shared laughter even when I asked some ridiculous questions.  Your continued support during the purchase process and organising of our solar panel and awning along with the installation was greatly appreciated.

We are really happy with the motorhome we purchased from you and would not hesitate in recommending you  and your motorhomes to others. We wish you all the best for the future and thank you once again for going the extra mile to ensure we were happy with our motorhome. Regards

Looking  for a Barbecue  for your motorhome  ??
Our choice without a doubt is a weber baby Q - the model with the thermometer on the lid -
this is ideal as it has a drop down lid in high winds and  it fits a full chicken
Very important to purchase a trivet  and foil tray at the time - place the chicken on the trivet - put the lid down and approx 1.20 min later it is golden brown colour and succulent 

Do i need a gas outlet  for my barbecue  on my motorhome  ?
We advise not - the reason is that you are very limited  in that one place with a gas outlet on your motorhome  ,
you are better off not to have one  - you can guarantee the wind could change  once your barbecue is going and you could be all smoked out  in your motorhome , your best bet is to get a second gas bottle and you can place this outside where ever you want away from the wind.
If you still insist we can fit one - we will advise on price

Your Thetford toilet is important to use it correctly   !

  • It is important to use only Aqua Kem Blue  as pictured to the cassette  ( no other chemical  ) 
  • Only add 120mls  to cassette  ( summer temp 30 degrees  add 180 mls to cassette   )
  • Always open the shutter before using toilet    
  • Important to only use toilet for both poo and wee  ( not just wee as vehicle will smell of urine)  
  • Chemical works up to  6 days  - then empty cassette 

    And off course only dispose at a  proper recognised  Dump station

YES  - Fiat are Going Adblue  Diesel  approx  March to May  2019 
We have just been notified  by Ci Motorhomes Italy
Fiat have tried to avoid this for sometime  but this is in line with the demands of the world emmision standards 
So it will be called Euro 6D

What it means  as a purchaser ??
Increase cost of the base price of the vehicle we have been advised by italy would be approx $4000 to $5000 
Overall increased costs -  additives etc 

What is the answer  ?
Definitely would be beneficial to purchase a New Motorhome now before the change and the price increase

Why was Fiat Ducato chassis voted for best chassis to use for motorhome in its class  ???

Not all manufacturers of chassis are the same - it is very important to understand this for the following reasons

Most important  factor is


The Fiat Ducato has an increased rear track (1980 mm, category best-in-class, 190 more than the standard track) permits greater stability on the road -  and offers greater width for the living cell.

This is important - if you dont have the wider rear axle on a motorhome in this class -
then a vehicle will wander all over the road and hard to control on the road .
We have seen this happening with some other brands of chassis  - they are on the market  today -

This is why  Fiat Ducato is recognised in europe as the best selling motorhome with at least 85% of sales the Fiat chassis

You have to remember -
In the Fiat Ducato Factory  in Sevel Italy  - they are still manufacturing 1000 units per day   !!
You did read it right  - YES one thousand units per day

There is a number of customers asking us about the number of safety belts in ci motorhomes ?

We are repeatedly asked this question as we hear some motorhomes out there that are sold as a 4 berth motorhome and only have 2 safety belts  - we believe it should only be advertised as a 2 berth only  . As very misleading if advertised as a 4 berth.
This will also affect resale value  

To add 1 extra safety belt can be $3500  and upwards in costing  - depending on whats required  to be modified
on the motorhome to meet regulations.

You will be pleased to know our 3  berth Kyros  Duo Prestige has 4 safety belts 
And our Ci Triaca 4 berth motorhomes  have  4 Safety Belts  
ALL  other models  have  5  safety  Belts  all certified

Ducato is made in the Sevel Plant in Atessa, Val di Sangro, Italy, the largest light commercial vehicle plant in Europe. The bases which are converted into motorhomes by expert converters and hit the road as recreational vehicles have been made here since 1981. Six generations of Ducato have rolled off the lines of the plant onto the roads of Europe for the satisfaction of hundreds of thousands of users, merit of its many body variants, the square and regular shape of its loading compartment, its efficient chassis and its car-like driving. Qualities like these make it the best-seller on all major markets across Europe and the ideal base to be converted into a motorhome. Experts are expecting 120,000 new registrations in 2018, which is about 10 per cent increase on last year. Demand is growing year after year on all markets and has totalled approximately 50 per cent over four years.

There is a question looming in the motorhome industry where some dealers are saying you need a 150hp engine on your motorhome 
This is incorrect information 
Bearing in mind a large amount of the public want a  motorhome on a WOF  ( Not a Cof ) 
which means on a WOF (3500kg and under GVM)  you can drive at 100km hr  and from new it is  3 years  initially and then yearly thereafter. 
With a COF is different if it is over 3500kg  you can only drive at only 90km/hr  and every 6 months at testing station 

The facts are with Fiat Ducato :

  • Over 90%  of Fiat Ducato motorhomes sold in the world are 130hp  engines
  • Fiat reccomend as per their website  only a 130hp  is required up to GVM of 3500kg  (all WOF  vehicles maximum GVM -3500KG)
  • Fiat reccomend as per their website a 150hp is recommended when weight or GVM exceeds 3500kg ( or  COF)  
    as discussed above or when your towing a heavy load  
  • So majority of motorhomes on the road are 130hp  for all vehicles ( under  3500kg  or warrant of Fitness)
  • FIAT DUCATO STATES  on their website for the 130hp as follows :  

  • So all vehicles on a WOF  fiat reccomend a 130hp engine for economy  
    See also  proof  in 2015 Fiat Ducato factory built 5 milllion fiat ducato units  - ALL  130HP  
    See link here  

    Ci Motorhomes NZ  - have both options  -  130 hp or 150hp   


    And of course our secret to success  is  !!

We are receiving a number of calls from customers who have purchased a motorhome privately , or of a Dealer 
( who they thought were  the official recognised dealer  for that brand )  which  they found out later was  incorrect information  
so now they are up against trying to obtain a part  for that brand  or getting the fault fixed  is a problem  - no parts  
There are a number of parallel  import dealers who are not the  Licensed  dealer for that brand  being sold  - 
so check the  brands main website to see if that dealer is the official  dealer for that brand of motorhome  - before purchasing 

Be aware - A number of dealers  will not supply a part  to you , or the price could be inflated  if you have not purchased your motorhome in NZ of the official dealer. ( Ci Motorhomes NZ -  do not operate  this way )  

Also check to see  how long the dealer has been in the industry  -  You dont want them here today and gone tommorow  !!
Walkabout  Motorhomes have been in buisiness for 19 years  -  still same owners from day one   !

New Zealand is a paradise !!  And we need to get out to enjoy our paradise , especially that spring is just around the corner  
You have worked hard all your life  and nothing would  be better than to have a New Motorhome with all the comforts of home.

So with your nice new motorhome , you would not be wanting to leave home unless you have Duraseal  Done  !!
(Can only be applied when vehicle is brand new )

Duraseal is a paint protection  to prevent the elements of nature ( sea spray, sun , rain etc ) from damaging your motorhome .  
Walkabout Sales is the only Duraseal motorhome dealer NZ
the product has been around for many years and comes with a lifetime warranty .
It  makes the vehicle easier to wash  , and prevents the surface to oxidise  - like what happens on fibreglass .

For our  SPRING  SPECIAL   -  (from now until  30th September  )
we are offering FREE DURASEAL  on any New Motorhome purchased  from Ci Motorhomes  NZ
