The South Island Motorhome Show is a not to be missed motor-caravanning event, held annually in Ashburton.

This is the ultimate event for those interested in purchasing a new or used motorhome or caravan, looking to sell an existing motorhome or caravan, wishing to purchase accessories for a present or future vehicle or just wanting to look at ‘what’s new in the marketplace’ and socialise with like-minded people.

Members of the New Zealand Motor Caravan Association can also have compliance certificates updated on site by authorised agents.

Members of the public, trade exhibitors and others associated with the event are encouraged to take their time and have fun savouring the vehicles and accessories on site.

The aim of the event is to showcase what is available within the New Zealand Motorhome Industry and associated Trades.

Buy, sell, or view vehicles, or just enjoy the atmosphere at the show. Commercial and private sellers, camping equipment, food stands and fun!

Social campers are welcome to make an overnight weekend of this fantastic annual event.

The Lions Club of Ashburton is proud to bring you this event. All profits of the South Island Motorhome Show are distributed in our town and community through our Club’s Charitable Foundation.

The South Island Motorhome Show was the brain child of Murray and Bev Meadows.  It has been held annually at the Ashburton A&P Showgrounds for the last 22 years.

The Lions Club of Ashburton became the proud owners of this event in 2018. All proceeds from the show go towards helping our local community via our Charitable Trust!

Special Thanks To Our Foundation Sponsors
