SOTA RV LTD would like to introduce Roma Caravans to the New Zealand market. We have been on the search for the highest quality caravans that would suit NZ roads and the NZ lifestyle, with all the latest tech on offer. Roma meet these criteria.
Roma, being the oldest caravan manufacturer in the world have been building caravans since 1928, and it has been in the same family since the early 1950’s. Throughout the years the business has evolved, undergoing an ownership change in the mid 1950’s to the late Vittorio Palmarini. Introducing his son, Tony, to the business in the early 60’s, he then learnt the ways of manufacturing before opening a sales yard. Tony returned to the factory to assist his father. Like father like son, Tony too introduced his sons to the business. The business ownership has continued with Tony, introducing Brendan as a director in 2018. Brendan has followed in his father’s footsteps, having worked in the factory for several years, before Brendan developed a very successful sales yard, then returning to the factory.
We had the pleasure of meeting Mike and Jared from SOTA RV at the 2019 Christchurch caravan and motorhome expo. On meeting these guys we purchased our Roma Elegance which we absolutely love. Right through the process we found Mike and Jared to be very Honest and trustworthy and having confidence in their product. Their after sales service is second to none and nothing is a problem, as Mike would say “Too easy”. We would not hesitate to recommend Mike and Jared to anyone looking to purchase a caravan from SOTARV.
We met Jared and Mike at their first ever caravan show in Christchurch. We were impressed by their friendly but cautious natures given they were just starting their venture together. We were looking for a completely customised caravan which the team from Roma assured us “that they could build pretty much anything we wanted”. And so, we went on a journey together with Jared and Mike taking our endless lists of wants and needs to Roma. It would be fair to say, the journey took a lot longer than any of us expected but in the end, we have a caravan that we are very happy to spend months at a time in. Jared and Mike are a delight to deal with and over this time, have become more like friends with many laughs (and the odd drink or two) along the way. We needed a few extras added once the caravan was in Nelson, and they arranged all the contacts we needed so they were completed in a high quality way to match our lovely caravan. We have had a few teething issues but all of these have been dealt with professionally and swiftly. If you’re looking for a new caravan, we thoroughly recommend giving Jared or Mike a call.
To anyone who maybe interested in or seriously considering buying a Roma Caravan. I am happy to personally and highly recommend both the Roma product and the team at SOTA RV. My name is Deane and I am currently waiting to take possession of my second Roma caravan which I have ordered from Mike, Jarod and the team at SOTA RV. I first met the guys early last year when I went to the Auckland show to compare different makes an models of caravans and decided on which would become my permanent home. I spent the day walking around the show visiting all the different brand exhibitors looking at the different features and talking with the sales teams, I returned to the SOTA RV stand four or five times during the course of the day, each time speaking with a different member of the SOTA team. I can’t speak highly enough of their approach, their product knowledge and the genuine interest they all showed in my requirements and the questions I had about the Roma product. I was So impressed with the whole experience I purchased the Roma Razorback Sport that the team had on display at the show. I cannot fault the Roma product and have thoroughly enjoyed dealing with Mike and Jarod from SOTA RV!!
I have purchased my new Roma Razorback in July 2019 and moved in October 2019. I wanted a custom built one, smaller than the standard version, but with all (and more) of the luxuries – and they delivered! I have lived in it full time since then. What a fantastic caravan. SOTA RV and Roma Caravans went out of their way to accommodate my every request, so I literally have a luxury tiny house on wheels. The sales process was fantastic and stress free, and when I took possession of it SOTA RV went way above and beyond what was expected to make sure that was stress free as well, and helped me settle in it and learn how to tow it. I could not have asked for a better after sales service. Having lived in it now for more than a year, I really enjoy how sturdy it is, easy to tow, and it has all the features packed in a very small space in a way that makes my life a dream! Thanks SOTA RV!
Mike and Jared were a pleasure to deal with – everything was easy. The van has far exceeded our expectations.
