Claire Smith discovers the Landmark Oakura 758X from Traillite is a fine example of Kiwi-made excellence.


Traillite’s 700 motorhome series was developed with the aim of giving Kiwi travellers the best of both worlds – getting away from it all in your own five-star accommodat­ion. Or, as Traillite would say, “where luxury meets adventure”.

For those new to the brand, Traillite is a family-based business who have been building RVS in New Zealand – Pukekohe in South Auckland to be exact – since 1954. More than 65 years on, the business is New Zealand’s leading motorhome and caravan manufactur­er and retailer.

Building with Traillite gives you options. The 300 series, 500 series and 700 series all have their choice of floorplans/layouts and optional upgrades on the 500 and 700 mean you can make it a ‘Landmark’ and enjoy the ultimate upgrade experience.

What does that mean? I checked out a Landmark 758X Oakura to understand that. It’s less about the specificat­ion

– a Traillite is class leading in that regard – but the Landmark upgrade is all about the look and feel. You walk in and it’s lush, luxury, it’s one of a kind.

You can see the difference in the fit and finish but also the choice of interior colour schemes elevates the opportunit­y from your standard choice of four options to endless options.

The style and sophistica­tion of sitting down for a consultati­on with an interior designer really shows when you see the luxury style through these motorhomes.

As you step into the living area, the first impression is of comfort and quality. The next is just how spacious the interior is. That’s in good part due to the extra space afforded by the kitchen slide out – a nifty invention that allows a section of the interior to extend outward once you’re parked up.

The L-shaped dinette sits opposite the kitchen, with a split bathroom leading into the rear bedroom.

In short, if you are in the market for a solid premium, New Zealand-made motorhome with an interior that is designed to your specific taste and style, you would be well advised to start your search with the Landmark 700 series. Find out more at
