Horizon Motorhomes story began in early nineties, when Owner and Managing Director Clayton Kearney turned his love of motors and travelling into a career and established the Horizon Motorhomes brand after the first vehicle sold from BCMC (Ballina Campervan & Motorhome Centre).
The Boronia and Eucalypt Motorhomes were both built into the MWB ex ambos but were later dropped. The Casuarina Motorhome was built and launched (without a bathroom) but then dropped.

All vehicles are designed and hand built at the factory in Ballina, from the shell up, using Mercedes Benz Sprinter and Fiat Ducato as base vehicles. There are currently 9 models in the range.
The Waratah Motorhome was launched and owner and managing director Clayton Kearney took the Waratah 4WD on a month long off-road test drive challenge, driving from Ballina to Western Australia. The Waratah 4x4 passed its test and Horizon then developed a range of 4x4s available in the Waratah, Acacia and Wattle layouts.
