SylvanSport expands into New Zealand

BREVARD, N.C. — Starting in March, the SylvanSport GO will also be available in New Zealand through their dealer partner, GO Adventures, the company announced today.

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 dominance of small passenger vehicles and ‘utes’ (small pick up trucks), along with easy access to the coast, rivers and mountains for the majority of the population, makes New Zealand an ideal market for the lightweight versatility of the GO, said Kyle Mundt, vice president of marketing and new product development.

“The GO is perfectly suited for New Zealand,” states 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 840lbs, 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 incredible growth in the last couple of years and with expansion into markets like New Zealand, 2017 is on track to continuing this trend, said Tom Dempsey, president of SylvanSport.

“We set out to create a gear hauling camper that is based on design, function, versatility and quality,” he explained. “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, said Mundt.
