Caravan industry compliance gets serious traction at Melbourne Leisurefest

It is rare, but sometimes and Melbourne Leisurefest is an example, good things fall into place. This year for the first time caravan industry compliance got serious traction. RVM Australia completed a pilot compliance inspection program on caravans and motorhomes at the Sandown Racecourse Leisurefest venue.

RVMA assessed the RV's on behalf of the Caravan Industry Association of Victoria. "This is the culmination of a process we began 18 months ago to give consumers true peace of mind when shopping for an RV at our shows," CIA Victoria Chief Executive Officer, Rob Lucas said today.

"Beginning with our Caravan, Camping & Touring Supershow at Caulfield last year, we have been steadily tightening up our compliance requirements for exhibitors.

"For the Sandown show we have taken our compliance program to the next level by conducting a pilot inspection program conducted by RVM Australia based on their Recreational Vehicle Manufacturing Accreditation Program (RVMAP).

“This is the culmination of a process we began 18 months ago to give consumers true peace of mind when shopping for an RV at our shows,” he said.

"For the Sandown show we have taken our compliance program to the next level by conducting a pilot inspection program.

“We run this show in partnership with the VACC and the Boating Industry Association of Victoria, and compliance is vitally important to all of us.

“The Sandown audits may well set the benchmark for all our shows.

"These are the  RV & Camping Leisurefest at Bendigo, the Supershow at Caulfield and the Border RV & Camping Expo at Wodonga.

"This will be decided after  we conduct a full evaluation on the outcomes of the pilot,” he said.

RVM Australia chief executive officer David Duncan said CIA Vic had adopted a streamlined version of the RVMAP physical audit and document checks for its show inspections.

“It is a credit to the Council and management of CIA Vic that it is taking this initiative to ensure true peace of mind for show patrons,” he said.

“I’m pleased to report we found excellent compliance, with few items requiring correction, which is very reassuring for the many thousands of people who attended Leisurefest.”

Rob Lucas said it seemed the RVMAP-based process struck an ideal balance in the quest to give consumers peace of mind while accommodating the logistical realities of conducting a big show.

“We had only two days before the show to conduct all the inspections, so it was a big job for the RVM Australia technical advisers to cover all the exhibitors,” he said.

“Thanks to the efficiency of the advisers and the goodwill of our exhibitors, we got the job done with the minimum of fuss, so that is a good thing for exhibitors and patrons alike.”
