We attended the Auckland motorhome show in 2016. We saw all the Motorhomes on display and were a little confused by the end of the day. I recall the last booth we visited was Frankia and met Jonas Ng. We instantly were impressed with both the informative and professional approach of Jonas.
The Frankia 7900 seemed to tick all the boxes for us, queen size walk around bed, proper shower, seperate toilet, large boot, Mercedes rear wheel drive, luxury finish. These features combined with Jonas manner made our decision easy. Since taking delivery Jonas's after sales service is excellent, nothing is a problem. For anyone wanting a luxury motorhome from a truly professional company, contact Jonas Ng.
Purchased date - April 2017 - Diane Gray and Gay Howard Katikati
We took delivery of our Frankia T7400GD in April 2017.
Our criteria were large garage, single beds and full size fridge/freezer. Not so hard to find you would think but from our initial decision it was several months before we found what we were looking for at the motorhome show in Hamilton.
The Frankia T7400GD was perfect for our needs and the lift up rear garage door an absolute bonus. All the toys, golf clubs, ebikes, fishing rods and gear, BBQ all have their place.
Although Jonas was out of the country when our motorhome was being prepared Diane and Chris were on top of everything, making sure all was as it should be for take over. Checking to ensure inverter correct for charging our ebikes just one of many instances they kept things on track for happy travelling for us.
After sales service has been excellent and staff old and new are both helpful and knowledgeable.
We are really happy with our Frankia and expect to enjoy many more exciting trips in the future.
Diane Gray and Gay Howard, Katikati
Purchased date - June 2017 - Peter & Jenny - North Island
We recently sold our business and thought we would like to explore New Zealand in a Motorhome. What a minefield this opened.
But after a couple of months looking at different types of motorhomes and visiting various dealers we made contact with Jonas at Zion Motorhomes.
From the start we were impressed with his helpfulness and patience with us. Eventually we purchased a Frankia T7400GD on a Mercedes 3 litre chassis and are delighted with it.
These are very well thought out Motorhomes with the attention to detail. Although we have only been away in it a couple of times so far, the van has exceeded our expectation. We think it is very stylish and all the little extra features continue to surprise us, USB points, storage under the floor, well thought out lighting etc etc
We love our Frankia and are looking to spend loads more time exploring New Zealand in it.

Frankia i8400QD 190HP Auto Mercedes Benz
Graham and I would like to thank you and your staff for our great Frankia Mercedes-Benz i8400QD motorhome. We got our RV in September 2016 & Graham and I love it but sadly my husband passed away six weeks later so since then Jonas and his team have been helping me through, telling me how to work all the things, how to change the right fuse that is more than I would expect. We were looking for New Zealand made Motorhomes and we went to caravan show in Auckland and there was nothing we liked and when we looked at the Frankia, we fall in loved and ticked all the boxes and even add a few extras like the outside shower & BBQ point. My Granddaughter loves it everything we need, cannot say enough wonderful things ......especially Jonas from initial purchase, handover, queries and everything was flawless. Outstanding communication any time of day, customer service skills are out of this world. Thank you so much for all your assistance in all my inquiries no matter how small, love my Frankia
Purchased date - June 2017 - Gray & Jo - North Island
Frankia i8400QD Platin
Having now enjoyed our new motorhome for the past week, Jo and I would like to thank you very much for your personal and reliable service.
From the moment we turned up at your yard, both you and your staff have been wonderful. You helped us decide which motorhome was for us and then made sure we got everything we needed, including full NZ compliance, Sky and great WIFI. Your introduction to the vehicle was excellent and informative, without being too technical or longwinded. As for the motorhome itself, Frankia have done a great job – the finish is faultless and it drives brilliantly – the 190bhp Mercedes is both quiet and very responsive. All in all, a great choice, and we are two delighted customers, happy to recommend both you and the Frankia product to others. Kind regards, Gray and Jo.

Frankia Mercedes Benz - i7900
Dave and I would like to say a big big thanks to you and your staff for all the effort and support you gave us and still do with our fabulous Frankia motor home
We were on our way to Christchurch for Dave to have some cancer treatment and we made a decision to tick off one of our bucket list items and buy a motor home as it was one of our wishes.
As we were new to motor homing we decided to go to the Auckland motor home show in March 2015 and check out all the different models. Our criteria were rear wheel drive so we could tow our boat, good size garage, a made up Island bed and decent size Fridge and Freezer.
Initially we wanted NZ made but after seeing all available models it became quite clear that the best value for money was with the European made motor homes.
Fortunately we met Jonas Ng and Chris while we were looking at a Frankia A Class i7900 that was on show and realised that this was the best motor home at the show that satisfied all our needs.
To completely satisfy our needs we wanted some changes and extra options including decor changes, V6 turbo 3 litre Mercedes engine, larger fuel tank, outside shower, and a fully enclosed 6 meter awning with camp room sides with doors windows and fly screens.
Jonas and his staff were amazing to deal with nothing was a problem and everything we wanted just happened without any issues.
I have dealt with countless sales people buying trucks cars and high value machinery in my job and I can honestly say Jonas was by far the easiest most obliging person I have ever dealt with, he has the ability to understand what you want and makes it happen with unbelievable honesty, integrity, and is a very likeable person.
A very rear quality with people in that profession words can’t reflect the pleasure Pauline and I have enjoyed with this whole experience (PS your family are very cool as well)
Every time we use the motor home we feel so proud people want to look at it and it’s a real head turner while driving it is just a pleasure to drive smooth no rattles and a great soft ride simply amazing. We find new things every time we use it. We love it and it has made Pauline, Dave and Lucy (our gorgeous dog) very happy.
Our A Class i7900QD Frankia Motor home arrived from Germany and it was much more than we expected having done 4000KM so far it we can’t find anything we would change and have had no problems what so ever it has the WOW factor.
Thank you so much Jonas and your very professional team.

Purchase March 2016 - M & J Pedley @ Whangarei
Frankia Mercedes Benz - T7400
If you are considering purchasing a new motorhome from Zion motorhomes, we thought we would share our experience with you.
We recently purchased a new Frankia motorhome from Jonas and the guys at Zion Motorhomes. We made three trips to their depot at Howick, spending several hours there each trip. Jonas made himself available every time we asked to visit, he was very attentive and informative. Whilst we could not decide between two of the models on display for three weeks, he was extremely patient and never once pushy. He answered (and still does) every call or email promptly and brought technicians to site to solve problems he could not.
This is our second Frankia and now with the support network in place that Zion Motorhomes provides, we believe the best brand out there just got better.
Thanks Jonas and the team at Zion Motorhomes.

Also thought we would send you these photos for facts and figures for future customers who may ask. We went away a couple of weeks ago, and as you can see we took the full sized motor bike with all the riding gear as well as two bicycles. We had enough food etc for a week, a full tank of fuel and a full to overflowing tank of water. With all this, along with Jacqui and I we still only weighed in at 4500kg a whole 500kg below what we can carry. Brilliant, we are so pleased with the van.
