TESTIMONIALS FROM BUYERS AND SELLERS
Chris & Steve Brydon (Buyers) from Westport wrote;
We have known Pieter for well over 3 years in our search for a campervan/motorhome. Right from the start, Pieter stood out from other salespeople, he has been informative and attentive to our particular needs.
Even though he knew we were only looking, to begin with and were not quite ready financially for a top quality motorhome he stayed in touch with us over the years without being pushy at all.
We also met him each time we went to a motorhome show and he always had time to chat even though he was very busy.
Finally, we were in a position financially and wise to be able to purchase a vehicle. He helped us in every respect until we finally decided on one which would suit us, which we ended up purchasing through Pieter.
We would highly recommend Pieter and the service he offers and don't believe you would go past his personal attention to you and your specific needs. We will certainly be keeping in contact with him and will be using him for an upgrade when we need it.

Hello again Pieter,
We wish to Thank you for the wonderful service you gave us when purchasing our Campervan. It is rare these days these days for sales people to " go the extra mile " and you certainly did that, we love our van and Thank you sincerely for all your help, and would be happy to personally recommend you in the future. Julie and Philip Scully . NELSON.

Recently I had the pleasure of dealing with Pieter through the semi- reluctant sale of our campervan- due to a change in personal circumstances. Pieter was extremely professional , courteous, and sensitive throughout the whole process- keeping me informed every step of the way and making the sale straight forward and stress -free. He has a wealth of industry knowledge and I would recommend his services without hesitation.”

Ray & Ardelle (Sellers) from Renwick wrote;
We recently embarked on the process of upgrading our motorhome, which meant selling our older type motorhome. Thank goodness we met Pieter. He took over the sale and whole process. Instead of being a hassle we were quite relaxed as we were very confident the process was in good hands. Pieter did all the work for us, which involved a fair amount of his time, pre-sale checks, grooming, advertising, etc. At all times we were kept informed on the progress with regular phone calls and emails and we were very impressed with his attention to detail.
Apart from the business side of things, it was such a pleasure to meet Pieter and he is such a thoroughly nice guy and we would recommend him to anyone thinking of buying or selling a motorhome to contact him at RVfinders.
Ivan & Lorraine Couts / Foster (Sellers) from Cromwell wrote;
If ever we were to sell a campervan in the future we would go straight to RVFinders. We found Pieter was as honest and genuine as the day is long. We felt he went that extra mile and was trustworthy and very friendly like we had known him for many years.
Thank you for the outstanding effort you put in on our behalf to reach the result we achieved.
Viv & BIll McEwan (Buyers) from Mosgiel wrote;
We first met Pieter at the Ashburton Motor Home show in 2018 and had a chat with him re buying our 1st motorhome. When we got home he sent us a form to fill out with our requirements and have kept in contact with him since. We met up with him and his help and knowledge were invaluable. We didn't even buy off him, but I know he approved of the German motorhome we ended up getting. So we would highly recommend Pieter as an unbiased, very knowledgeable person to help you find your dream motorhome.
John & Janet Mulligan (Sellers) from Christchurch wrote;
We,ve known Pieter since we bought a new motorhome off him nearly three years ago. So when it comes to selling it, so we could upgrade, Pieter was the natural choice with his new business called RV Finders. His knowledge, honesty and friendliness is outstanding. We have no problem in recommending him to anyone wanting to buy or sell a motorhome or caravan.
Neil & Rennie Robinson (Buyers) from Christchurch wrote;
During the process of purchasing our motorhome through RV Finders, I must congratulate Pieter for the way in which he conducted himself and the way in which he kept us informed on all aspects of inquiry about the motorhome during our decision making on the purchase of our Bürstner motorhome.
After making the decision to purchase following negotiations with Pieter, he then took us through a complete pre-delivery inspection and operating schedule of the vehicle which we found very advantageous. It made it very easy on our maiden voyage knowing how to operate the heating, gas supply, water controls, etc…
He even picked us up on the day to go and collect the vehicle. Really appreciated
Any person looking to purchase a motorhome..we thoroughly recommend RV Finders and Pieter for his personal service, knowledge and customer care...Something that is hard to find in today’s market
Kay & David Dixon (Sellers) from the UK wrote;
Thank you so very much for selling our Motorhome for us. We were impressed by your knowledge of the market and the timeliness of the sale. We were also very pleased to receive the funds so quickly.
We will be very happy to act as references for any future business you secure in Europe.
Kerry & Nick Walker (Sellers) from Church bay - Christchurch wrote;
Thank you so much for doing such a great job with selling our motorhome. It took all the stress out of it knowing it was in such capable hands and we were kept well informed about what was happening during the entire process - the result was great and your hard work much appreciated.
Many thanks, Pieter, we will keep in touch and should we buy or sell again will certainly contact you.

I may be possibly the world's worst sales person so it was simply wonderful (and stress free!) to hand everything over to Pieter who provides superb service and updates as you go. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Alan MacGregor, Emeritus Professor
Peter & Ruth Dowlman (Sellers) from Kaikoura wrote;
We met Pieter at the motorhome show in Christchurch and we liked his approach and personality. I took one of his brochures thinking that we might make contact sometime.
It wasn't long after that, that we decided to sell our Camper and contacted Pieter to sell it for us. We dropped it off with Pieter and it wasn't too long before he had a buyer for us. He handled everything and the deal was done.
What you see, you get with Pieter, he is very thorough and honest, and we would certainly recommend him, whether buying or selling a motorhome.
Krusty Demon alias Steve Pocock (Buyer) from Taupo wrote;
I would like to highly recommend RVFINDERS from down South. He and I were in contact for many weeks. I first met him at the Motorhome show at Mystery Creek. He struck me as a very honest and straight up guy. No matter what information I asked for about my prospective purchase it was never a problem to find out the answer IF he didn't know it. I took this guy at his word and never went there to look at the Spartan Holiday Rambler that I was wanting. Well, on the morning of the pickup he met me at the airport and took me to the motorhome, I was blown away at how accurate his description was, and if anything I believe I got a lot more than I was expecting in a very good way. I would have no hesitation in buying anything through Pieter again if ever the need arises in the future.
Barbara Muir (Buyer) from Blenheim wrote;
Thank you Pieter for your help to purchase my first motorhome. You have gone out of your way to get it ready for me for the New Year 2019. You were recommended to me by an experienced motorhome owner so that in itself says a lot about your integrity and trust to "get it right" for the client. I'm very happy with this purchase and when I might need to sell due to change of circumstances or to upgrade, I'll be back!!
Murray & Angelique (Buyers) from Otaki wrote;
Found RV finders excellent to deal with. Pieter took all the hassle out of the change of ownership and payment was simple. Would recommend RVfinders to anyone looking to buy or sell a motorhome. Thanks again Pieter for the service and also the nice basket of goodies via courier. Regards Angelique and Murray

Thank you Pieter for selling our Mitsubishi Fuzo motorhome recently at the Ashburton Extravaganza. Your professional approach and support made it easier than trying to do it ourselves. We would recommend you to others.
Sue Campbell (Buyer) from Waimate wrote;
Pieter was great do deal with when we were looking to purchase a caravan, which we purchased off him. It was presented to us in immaculate condition. The communication was excellent and to top it off a lovely bunch of lillies and a bottle of champayne presented to us on pickup. We would recommend anyone looking for a camper or caravan to contact this guy, Thank you so much Pieter

Thank you very much for your professional service. You took no time at all in selling our previous Motorhome and your help and input with the purchase of our new Swift unit was well above and beyond standard service. We highly recommend your services to all. We look forward to many happy trips and a big thank you to RVfinders.

Many thanks to Pieter of RV Finders for his involvement in the sale of our motorhome. His service was friendly, helpful and thorough throughout the process and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone either buying or selling a motorhome.
Pete Bene (Seller) from Scotland wrote;
I used RVFinders of Christchurch to deal with the sale of my motor home after I had returned to Scotland from my experience of a lifetime touring & fishing in NZ and found them honest, efficient & reliable which puts your mind at ease when you are on the other side of the world. They did a comprehensive check of my vehicle prior to putting it on the market so there was no nasty surprises for any future owners. I would have no hesitation in recommending RVFinders for buying / selling an RV vehicle in one’s absence prior to or after your NZ visit.
Sandra Overdevest & Michel Mannenssen (Sellers) from the Netherlands wrote;
It really was a pleasure to work with Pieter. He managed to sell our motorhome a lot faster then we ever expected.
He does whatever he can to keep buyers and sellers happy with communication that went very smooth. Even after we went back home to the Netherlands.
We would definitely recommend RVfinders if you want to sell your motorhome.

Tim Roulston (Buyer) from Christchurch wrote;
I have just purchased a motorhome through Pieter and can totally recommend him. There were a few small issues, as there always is when purchasing a motorhome. Pieter was straight onto them and fully committed to getting things sorted to my satisfaction. Buying or selling you won't go wrong dealing with Pieter. Thanks for your help and patience Pieter.
Rob Dupont (Seller) from Timaru wrote;
Pieter Koekemoer of RV Finders sold my motor home to my great satisfaction. I found him very pleasant to deal with all aspects to do with the marketing of the vehicle and he found a purchaser within a month at our asking price. I believe Pieter to be honest, professional and would recommend others wishing to sell their motorhomes/caravans to give him their custom.
Wendy Barrett & Jeff Smith (Sellers) from Pegasus wrote;
Pieter sold our lovely caravan in no time at all. He is such a gentleman, friendly and easy to deal with. We were really impressed with his honesty & professionalism and how well he marketed our caravan. The comprehensive video tour Pieter made of our caravan really impressed us, as it provided detail and features that couldn’t be shown in photos alone. We have no hesitation recommending Pieter to anyone buying or selling an RV. Thank you once again Pieter for finding a wonderful home for our treasured caravan
Kennedy Garland (Seller) from Waipu Cove, Northland wrote;
It has been a pleasure to deal with you and we appreciate all you have done to make the sale of the house-truck seamless while maximizing the financial return. Pieter, you have communicated superbly on all aspects of this sale and have gone out of your way to assist us with any issue or query. What seemed a difficult task was made very straight forward due to your professional handling of all matters along with your commitment to achieving the best result. Considering we live a 1000km+ away we could not have achieved this great result without you.
Jim Pantelos (Buyer) from Christchurch wrote;
We just acquired and upgraded our motorhome through RVfinders. Dealing with Pieter was a pleasure, a true professional with an attitude that gives you comfort and confidence but most importantly his transparency.
Dave Goodgame (Buyer) from Napier wrote;
Awesome motorhome exactly as described as per our friendly phone conversations. Definitely, no need for me to have traveled half the length of the country to inspect it. I would trust Pieter Koekemoer's word 100%. Many thanks. I am very happy.
Dale & Gail Taylor (Buyers) from Australia wrote;
Dale & Gail from Australia came to NZ looking for a motorhome and RVfinders helped them into their dream motorhome. This is what they had to say...."Hello Pieter and Melissa.
Firstly, thank you both so much for your professional diligence and guidance throughout the purchase of our Ford Transit- 6 berth Motorhome. It was a pleasure doing business with you two. We have just completed 17 days traveling around the top half of the South Island with only a few minor issues, which were quickly and easily rectified. The vehicle is a very solid, well laid out functional unit and pleasant to drive and camp in especially in the “free camping style“ We are very proud of our home on wheels and are indebted to you both for helping make it possible. We especially appreciated the presentation’ Gift basket ‘ we received on the pick up day.

Once we have decided to sell our motorhome we contacted Pieter who came highly recommended. We found in all our dealings with him to be realistic, honest and upfront. We would have no hesitation in recommending Pieter to anyone who wanted to sell their motorhome or caravan. He goes the extra mile and takes the stress out of selling.
Will & Lucille Kent (Sellers) from the UK wrote;
RVfinders has been perfect for us. Pieter looked after our vehicle when we moved overseas and has continued to work hard keeping us informed the whole time. A friendly, professional motorhome broker who is trustworthy and reliable. We highly recommend RVfinders for anyone buying or selling a motorhome in NZ. Many Thanks again 😃
John & Ming Evans (Sellers) from the UK wrote;
We contacted Pieter following a strong recommendation from friends who had used his services two years ago. However we still weren’t prepared for quite how friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and efficient he is!
He collected, valeted and marketed our Mobilvetta and within a week it had been sold, at a good price. We are very grateful to him and warmly recommend his services.
Michael Becker (Seller) from Denmark & NZ wrote;
RVfinders did a great job selling my motorhomes. Everything went well and Pieter has been awesome to deal with. If you want to sell your motorhome, ask Pieter to do it. He takes all the stress of selling off your hands. Thanks, Pieter!"

Working with Pieter at RVfinders made selling ourWinnebago motorhome a stress-free experience. His marketing video was very professional and he treated both the seller and the buyer with honesty and integrity. It was lovely to have Pieter deal with the storage, detailing and handover of our vehicle. I strongly recommend RVfinders. Thanks Pieter.

Pieter has been very professional and provided a five-class service when buying our motorhome through him. He always goes the extra mile to ensure he keeps both the buyers and sellers happy. He has a customer-centric attitude and is a genuine person. We would definitely be happy to do business with him again in the future. Thanks for everything Pieter!
Sally Boyce (Seller) from Rolleston wrote;
I first heard about RVfinders from a local RV dealer who recommended them to me. I had a campervan and caravan to sell. Both needed a bit of fixing up to make them salable and Pieter went above and beyond to make this happen. Pieter kept in touch with me throughout the whole process so we could discuss plans of action and any issues that came up. It made it incredibly easy for me not having to do anything except make up my mind now and then! Pieter picked up and dropped off both vehicles when necessary and stored them both which was a relief as I had no room to do so. I was so impressed with Pieters honesty and efficiency that when I'm ready to have another campervan again I will go straight to RVfinders.
Adrienne & Ron Gibbons (Sellers) from Geraldine wrote;

Karen Batchelor & Tom Dooley (Sellers) from Christchurch wrote;
After the sudden passing of my Mum, Tom made the decision to sell their cherished campervan. At first I thought we could do it ourselves, but even before listing it quickly became apparent that there would be a lot of work, risk, time and uncertainty handling this ourselves. After reading all the testimonials on Pieter's website and deciding that there was way too many for it to be an elaborate fraud, we met up with Pieter and he could not have been more knowledgeable, helpful and caring. He sorted everything and once the campervan was listed it was less than a week before an offer and subsequent buyer was found. We would happily recommend Pieter and his services.
Rex & Lynne Sunbeam (Sellers) from Christchurch wrote;
Pieter recently sold our motorhome, the process was simple and stress-free and we received a very good cash settlement after it was placed with RVfinders for only 5 days. Many thanks.
Brian & Margaret Blyth (Sellers) from Rangiora wrote;
If for any reason you need to sell your motorhome or caravan, Pieter of RVfinders can be highly recommended. Pieter has an excellent knowledge of the industry and has an amazing ability to find an appropriate buyer for you. Recently we had to reluctantly sell our motorhome. Pieter handled the whole process in a thoroughly professional manner. We were kept well informed at each stage and the final result most satisfactory. We found him to be completely honest and reliable at all times. Very many thanks to Pieter (and Melissa). “

We met Pieter two years ago, and again in February 2021 at the Ashburton Motorhome and Caravan show. As we did not sell our motorhome on this particular weekend, we were very happy for Pieter to take it and sell it for us. We did actually buy a motorhome from Pieter that weekend.
He has been very professional throughout, and we would not hesitate to recommend his services to others. He provided us with updates, and the sale went through smoothly. Thank you to both Pieter and his lovely assistant, Melissa.
Thank you once again for taking the stress out of selling. God’s Blessings in all your endeavours

We recently purchased a Renault Campervan from Pieter and it was a good experience from start to finish. Pieter couldn’t have been more helpful. He was easy to talk to, knowledgeable, and more than happy to offer helpful advice and go the extra mile. Melissa’s home-made biltong also gets a gold star!

We have used Pieter & Melissa of RVFINDERS in Amberley to sell our campervan & found the experience hassle-free. They are both very knowledgeable & friendly, willing to go the extra mile to help.

We have no hesitation recommending them to anyone requiring their services & will definitely use them again when the need arises.

We have recently purchased a 2019 Sunliving Adria S 70SC Motorhome through Pieter Koekemoer of RV Finders. We were impressed with Pieters's service and knowledge of motorhomes. He took the time to demonstrate the vehicle thoroughly both initially and at handover and arranged for a number of aftermarket fitments (awning, reversing camera, cycle rack, solar panel) which were all done to a high standard.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Pieter Koekemoer to anyone looking to purchase a motorhome or caravan."

We met Pieter at the 2021 motorhome show in Christchurch when we purchased a motorhome from him. Subsequently, we used Pieter to sell our caravan, so I have seen him through both a buyer and seller’s eyes. Pieter and Melissa are very easy to get on with. They are enthusiastic and knowledgeable in the industry, and go to great lengths to make the process as easy as possible. No hardline sales approach here. I have no hesitation in recommending RV Finders to both potential buyers and sellers.

I can highly recommend RVfinders to sell your motor home. Pieter had my motorhome for about two weeks before selling it, getting a very good price. He was very professional and pleasant to deal with and put a great video on Trademe linked to Youtube . The money was paid out the next day after selling it. I will be using his services in the future whether buying or selling. Thanks again Pieter for a job well done."

Buy and Sell, that's just what we did with Pieter at RVfinders. Upgrading our 1st caravan for a 2020 model through RVfinders was a breeze even though we live in New Plymouth. Pieter's professional experience made the whole transition painless with his excellent communication and sales expertise. Would thoroughly recommend him if you are considering buying or selling.
Monique & Johan Princen (Seller) from Pegasus wrote;
When we committed to the purchase of a new motorhome our caravan was surplus to requirements. We approached Pieter to find out if he was interested. His responses were quick, professional and very friendly and we decided to use his services. He made a very good video of the caravan and its features as well as many pictures and checked if everything was working correctly. The caravan did sell in just over a week and Pieter quickly and efficiently managed the entire transfer. We have no problems recommending Pieter /RV Finders if you have a motorhome or caravan to sell as he makes the entire process hassle free and based on the checks he did, I would also be confident to buy an RV from him.
