Big news out of Australia. In an effort to expand their North American footprint, Brisbane, Australia-based Apollo Tourism and Leisure is looking to complete a purchase of Canadian-based CanaDream Corp. and Australian-based Kratzmann Caravans for a reported $43 Million to be completed by July according to RV Pro Magazine.
You might know Apollo as having the largest camper fleet for hire in Australia – an ever popular travel tourism destination especially for campers, ‘overlanding’ and caravanning. Since it’s beginnings, Apollo has grown to become a huge multi-national and multi-vertical organization that includes manufacturing, rentals (with over 3,000 motorhomes), sales and distribution of RVs. Their brands include StarRV, Cheapa Campa and Hippie – many we’re sure the likes of you have probably slept in one time or another.
CanaDream is one of the most well known RV rental outfits in Canada renting a variety of Class B, B+ and C motorhomes to the Canadian tourism and local camper market. Since 1987, Kratzmann Caravans has grown to become a regular name in the Queensland caravan retail arena. Of course we couldn’t resist mentioning both Canada AND Australia are prime destinations to rent a caravan. Just check out our Instagram feed for inspiration.
