Tuinroete Caravans expands as official Okto dealership


Tuinroete Camping and Caravans, a renowned dealership specializing in outdoor recreational vehicles, has recently announced its partnership with Okto Caravans, adding the esteemed brand to its lineup of offerings.

This strategic decision aims to meet the increasing demand for timber-less caravans while providing a wider range of choices to customers seeking quality, innovation, and excellent value for their camping adventures.

Echard Kuhn, manager of the popular dealership in Mossel Bay, tells CaravanSA that the decision to stock Okto Caravans was driven by customer demand and market satisfaction.

“Our customers asked, and we listened,” says Echard.

“We saw the market is very happy with the product and that the brand is selling well. Okto is a quality product that is well priced and good value for money.”

Initially, Tuinroete Camping and Caravans plans to stock popular models such as the Okto Chateau double axle, the En-Suite Gravellor, and the Cabana Gravellor. However, customers will have the opportunity to order any model from the Okto range, ensuring a broad selection to suit their preferences.

By including Okto Caravans in its portfolio, Tuinroete Camping and Caravans further strengthens its commitment to offering customers a wide array of premium brands. This addition not only broadens the dealership’s product range but also draws potential customers who may discover other brands and models during their visit.

“At Tuinroete Woonwaens we believe in giving our customers as wide as possible a choice of premium brands,” says Echard.

“Okto fits in well with this model… we can also now provide all the extra accessories and parts for the Okto owners. As an official agent, we also extend our assistance to Okto Caravans’ customers from other dealerships while they camp in the Mossel Bay area.”

To ensure customer satisfaction, Tuinroete Caravans provides comprehensive service and support to those purchasing an Okto Caravan (which comes with a full factory warranty). With a fully-fledged workshop staffed by trained technicians, the dealership is fully equipped to handle any maintenance or repair needs.

  • A diverse selection of over 13 models, ranging from road to gravel road options.
  • German-engineered Alko chassis and suspension, specially designed for Australian specifications.

  • Versatile 220v/Gas and 12v systems for flexible energy options.
  • Large, double-door, 12v fridge capable of operating during load-shedding and while on the move.
  • Standard inclusion of a full modular tent.
  • Outdoor kitchen and work surfaces, complemented by well-designed interior lighting.
  • Water tanks and gas geysers in the Gravellor and Conventional caravan models.
  • Ample storage space and a range of other convenient features.

With a focus on providing exceptional products, outstanding service, and a memorable camping experience, the dealership continues to play a vital role in facilitating remarkable journeys for customers across the country.

Regarding the future of the caravan industry in South Africa, Tuinroete Camping and Caravans sees a promising outlook not only for caravanning but also for camping as a whole.

“The growing desire among individuals to explore the great outdoors, coupled with retirees embracing the caravan lifestyle, and remote workers embracing caravans as mobile offices, contributes to the industry’s positive trajectory,” says Echard.

“Furthermore, the surge in 4×4 camping indicates a rising trend as customers convert their vehicles into fully equipped camping setups, demonstrating the market’s appetite for adventure.”
