Why A Motorhome?
So, you’ve got an itch for adventure and you love the freedom of the open road. You love the idea of getting in your motorhome and exploring all the natural wonders of Australia. You also want to have a comfortable place to sleep and eat. Our motorhomes give you all that you need and more – and their customised features make motor-homing a joy.
Why a motorhome instead of a campervan or caravan?
It’s a matter of personal choice. You may have reservations about towing a caravan rather than driving a single unit. You may not have enough room to park all your vehicles off-street, or it could come down to the type of touring you want to do. But, if you prefer a series of one-night stops you’d probably prefer a motorhome rather than disconnecting/connecting the caravan to the car.
The motorhome point of difference
It’s the difference between size and performance. Motorhomes, generally, are larger and offer more facilities –a bathroom/shower and toilet, better equipped kitchen facilities, more sleeping area and layout options to seat up to 2-4 guests and have two separate dining areas. Motorhomes are suited for touring the open road, and with our 4x4 range you can take on some off road adventures.
At Horizon Motorhomes, we don’t offer the typical motorhome selection. We build our unique motorhomes in the original shell of a Mercedes Benz Sprinter or Fiat Ducato. These motorhomes not only look great, but they’re also functional, safe and fuel-efficient.
Long established and Australian owned and made
Award-winning Horizon Motorhomes is the brainchild of Clayton Kearney, who in the early nineties turned his love of all things motors and traveling into a family business. Horizon, based in Ballina, northern NSW, have been designing and building built-in motorhomes since 1995. Every motorhome is hand-built with precision by a team of master craftsmen, using only the finest materials and construction techniques, to create a perfect home away from home.
Constructed to Suit
We aim to offer a personalised service, and as such you can choose to purchase your Horizon Motorhome for construction (as opposed to purchasing an already constructed vehicle on display). This means we have the ability to design your motorhome to suit your individual needs, including changes that can be made as part of the construction process, such as bed layouts or adjustments, or changes to the storage combinations. Horizon Motorhomes have lots of experience in designing motorhomes to suit our customers and can help you in determining which motorhome is right for your travelling requirements.
Built into the Fiat Ducato and Mercedes Benz Sprinter base vehicles, the current range boasts nine motorhome layouts – Melaleuca Appeal, Melaleuca, Casuarina, Banksia, Banksia +2, Wattle, Acacia, Waratah and Grevillea.
The high-quality cabinetry is built into the vehicle body (rather than onto the chassis), retaining the structural integrity of the vehicle and giving you a safer and more fuel-efficient ride. There are no joins, no rattles, and no movement, making your drive a quiet one, just like driving a car. What’s more, when you get to your destination, our built-in motorhomes allow you to pull into a standard car-parking space and give more passing space on narrow roads.
For the more adventurous, 4x4 options are available in the Waratah, Acacia and Wattle layouts, giving you the freedom to explore some of the more remote areas of Australia in a luxurious touring vehicle.
