Covi Supershow Gate Prize Goes Global With Motek

Visitors to the Covi Motorhome, Caravan and Outdoor SuperShow, to be held at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds from 14-16th September, will have the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime thanks to Motek and its global sister brands.

It will be the first time a thl brand has sponsored the gate prize and on offer is a 59 day adventure named the Ultimate Road Trip.

A once-in-a-lifetime motorhome experience for two, the prize includes 28 days in the USA, 21 days in Australia and 10 days in NZ, plus flights, transfers, $500 in petrol vouchers and discount vouchers for selected campsites.

Brand Experience Manager for Motek, Stuart Foster says, “The Covi Supershow is a must-attend for enthusiasts of all things motorhomes, camping and outdoors. We launched the Motek brand at the show last year and are delighted to return to the show a year on with the opportunity to take visitors on an exciting journey.

"Given we are a New Zealand company that operates overseas too, it made sense to develop a prize that reflected the experience and combined knowledge Motek has and can draw upon.

“Imagine exploring the northern Queensland tropics or staying in Grand Canyon country in the United States, all with the comforts of home,” he continues. “It truly is the ultimate road trip!”

The lucky winner will travel the routes and highways of the USA in a Road Bear RV and can choose to travel in a maui motorhome or Britz campervan as they navigate the roads of New Zealand and Australia.

To enter to win the Ultimate Road Trip, get your ticket stamped at the various stamping booths located around the show and place your entry at the gate prize stand – simple as that!

The show is widely regarded as the largest of its kind in New Zealand and sees around 15,000 people through its gates each year. For all show information including further details about the gate prize, visit
