What is the Sydney RV story?
Jeremy Pearce founded the Sydney RV Group in 1997. He had a family background in the RV industry in the UK and worked as the Service Director in Europe’s largest RV retailer. Chasing the sun and surf lifestyle for himself and his family, Jeremy and his young family travelled to Australia to check out life down-under. They purchased an RV and set off to explore.
Returning to Sydney after their adventure, having fallen in love with this great country, Jeremy saw an opportunity to bring his experience and love of the RV lifestyle to a new business venture and the Sydney RV Group was born.
In 2017 the call of the family back in the UK proved too great and Jeremy sold the business to its current owners Apollo Campers.
The Sydney RV Group has been a Sunliner dealer for over 6 years and stocks an extensive range of new and used Sunliners.
What drew you to the RV industry?
I have a background in boating sales and spent 20 years working on Sydney harbour. But my land-based passion has always been 4WDing and camping, so in that way, I have always had a hand in the RV lifestyle. In a happy coincidence, I meet Jeremy Pearce a few years back and he convinced me to come across to RVs sales, saying they were just like boats but with wheels! I have loved every minute of it.
Who works at SRVG?
The boss is Norman Roe who is the General Manager. He has been in the job since 2011 and has over 20 years experience in the RV industry.
I head up the Motorhome sales team which includes a total of 8 sales specialists ready to help. We also have an extensive team on the aftersales side working with Sunliner owners.
Which is your favourite Sunliner model and layout?
Because I enjoy free camping and going off the beaten path, I’m a big fan of the Habitat range, it suits my style of travel. Living in hustle and bustle of Sydney, when I can get away I prefer to head off to a quiet undiscovered corner and enjoy the serenity. The Habitat provides not only a vehicle to get you there and back again, but has the equipment on board, so you can stay just a few days longer before heading back to civilisation.
What is your favourite RV destination or event?
My favourite part of Australia is Litchfield National Park, anywhere really between Darwin and Broome. When I have the opportunity to do a big trip I love heading up there and then just driving with no real plan. It just the most magical place on earth.
More locally, I love the East Coast beaches – my family and I have spent many Christmas at Lake Canjola NSW.
I live by the saying that “Today is the only day we have, tomorrow is not promised” So if driving off into the horizon in a motorhome is one of your life dreams, don’t delay. I have never met anyone who has regretted his or her decision to buy an RV.
