“Conqueror caravans and trailer definitely have the best and most practical layout available on the market. Our products are the toughest and have the most modular build. Combine this with probably the best resale value of any caravan or trailer, and you can clearly see why Conquerer should be your first choice. Come see all we have to offer at Conqueror East Rand, our well-trained service staff with loads of experience will make your outdoor adventure dreams come true.”
– Pieter Kruger, Owner Conqueror East Rand

When you manage to grow your caravan dealership from just two people selling a couple of units per month, to one of the biggest dealerships in South Africa in just five years, you know you have a winning formula.
This is exactly what Pieter Kruger, the owner of Conqueror East Rand, has done.
Since buying the branch in 2015, Pieter has grown the business to a 1 600 square metre indoor space with the full Conqueror range, a second-hand section, service and repair centre, camping shop, as well as a full 4×4 fitment centre.

As if that’s not enough, they are also the appointed Opposite Lock and Frontrunner dealership for the area.
Pieter tells CaravanSA: “What we are really going for at our dealership is the full outdoor experience.
“From new and used sales to service and repairs. Our shop stocks camping equipment, as well as all your 4×4 vehicle needs – everything from recovery gear to cross-border stickers.
“We are the one-stop-shop for your outdoor adventures.”
Pieter started his Conqueror journey at their head office as a salesman. Within a few years, he had become sales manager for the group, until he bought the East Rand branch in 2015.
“Back then it was a small dealership, it was just me and one helper,” says Pieter.
“We’ve since moved into the new building, and today we have 14 staff members.
“Our sales team has more than 17 years experience between the two of them; and our fitment centre manager has been in 4×4 sales since 2003 with various brands. He is very well known in the industry.
“All of our staff are very experienced in their fields!”
The team at Conqueror East Rand pride themselves in making the entire caravan buying (or trade-in process as easy as possible.
“We do everything: financing, registration, licensing… to ensure that everything is comfortable for the client,” says Pieter.
“Whether it is a new or second-hand unit, you will have peace of mind that you are getting only the best.
“All the second-hand units that we sell have been serviced and repaired (if necessary). We do a full predelivery inspection and the caravan comes with a six-month warranty.”
If you have been thinking about upgrading your current Conqueror, or if you already have a caravan but want to become part of the Conqueror family, now is the perfect time to do it!
Pieter and his team currently have a special: trade in your unit at Conqueror East Rand, and they’ll give you R15 000 assistance which you can use as a down payment, use for upgrades or add-ons, or just spend in the shop.
Even trade-ins of certain brands other than Conqueror are welcome.
“We work with other dealers so can trade in almost anything,” says Pieter.
With the Conqueror side of the business already being one of the biggest in the country, Pieter is now also expanding his 4×4 offering.
“Initially the fitment centre in the building was owned by someone else but in 2019 we took it over. Now we are actually agents for Opposite Lock and Frontrunner.
“The 4×4 fitment centre has everything you need for off-road vehicle adventure: we can handle all vehicle fitments, from suspensions to replacement, canopies, nudge bars, towbars, roof racks… we do it all!”
