Harry is the founder and Managing Director of Vantage RV Ltd.
His interest in recreational vehicles began early when he converted his first bus and traveled around Europe.
He has now been working on motor-homes and caravans for longer than he cares to admit and can turn his hand to almost any job. With a degree in environmental management he has a keen interest in solar energy and other technologies that make living on wheels a sustainable option.
Harry's roles are buying, estimating and marketing for Vantage RV, making sure that company is providing its customers with the most efficient products and services.
Johan is Harry’s son and a partner in Vantage RV Ltd.
Johan has been interested in all things technical since he was a boy, working with his Dad to build everything from remote control boats to motor-homes. Johan completed his tertiary education in engineering and is the company’s technical ‘genius’. He loves a good puzzle and can turn his hand to almost anything. He frequently solves problems that customers tell us have stumped other workshops. Johan divides his time between the office and the workshop where he has oversight over the team of technicians. His time is spent working with clients on design solutions, developing our services and products, solving the trickiest of problems, planning workflow and making sure that each job is completed exactly according to customers’ requests.
Antoinette is Vantage RV Ltd’s Office Manager which broadly means she runs the show, using her strong organizational skills, she makes sure that everyone knows what is going on, that we are all safe and that the bills get paid.
Antoinette works closely with Harry and Johan to maintain a caring and high-quality customer experience.

He also takes on the many important jobs associated with getting new and imported vehicles ready for NZ’s roads.
