SylvanSport, which has aggressively expanded its North American dealer network, announced that its GO camping trailer and GO Easy gear hauler are now available in the New Zealand market through its dealer partner, GO Adventures.
According to a press release, New Zealand is passionate about conservation and outdoor recreation, with nearly one-third of the land area dedicated as a national park or other protected areas.
“The GO is perfectly suited for New Zealand,” stated Beth Savage, GO Adventures co-owner. “The ability to use it as a camper, as well as a standard utility trailer, all while efficiently carrying bikes, kayaks and other toys, is ideal for us here. You don’t see a lot of the large trucks or SUVs in New Zealand and at 840 pounds, it will allow people the ability to have a ‘do-it- all’ trailer that can be towed with just about any sized vehicle. The sleek design doesn’t hurt either.”
SylvanSport has seen strong growth in the last couple of years, and with expansion into markets like New Zealand 2017 is on track to continue that trend. “We set out to create a gear hauling camper that is based on design, function, versatility and quality,” said Tom Dempsey, president of Brevard, N.C.-based SylvanSport. “It’s not about any one thing that it can do, it’s the idea that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and we’ve achieved that with the GO. While our growth into international markets is exciting, it is also something that we planned on from the beginning, so we have the infrastructure in place to meet the increase in demand while maintaining our level of service, quality and support.”
GO Adventures has roots in the United States and New Zealand. With a background in manufacturing, management and retail, GO Adventures is set to open the New Zealand market “with a depth of experience and knowledge that will allow them to grow into the entire region,” the release stated.
