Press Release: 4x4 Fitment Centre Opens in Pinetown
Natal Caravans and Marine, KZN’s largest and longest service caravan dealer in the province, has just added a 4x4 Fitment Centre to their list of services, from camping equipment, caravans, trailers and boating products, that they already provide to the outdoor and camping community in KZN.
“We have taken the decision to start up a 4x4 Fitment Centre, that will add another exciting aspect to our growing business and put the finishing touches to our slogan, “One World Outdoors”, offering our customers the complete outdoors experience, all under one roof,” said Geoff Courtis, Managing Director
Roy Griffiths will be heading up the 4x4 Fitment Centre and comes with a wealth of experience in this segment of the market. He has been in the motor industry for 20 years with a motoring journalism background where he specialised as the 4x4 scribe. When he left the newspaper industry, he became a qualified on and off road 4x4 instructor and also notched up a couple of expeditions into Africa.
A combination of passion and knowledge saw him venturing into 4x4 fitments and sales of aftermarket equipment where he has been extremely successful for the past five years.
“We are excited about this new venture in our business and by having a specialist like Roy on board is an advantage. His passion and knowledge is exactly what we needed to steer the 4x4 Fitment Centre into the future,” commented Courtis.
The Natal Caravans and Marine 4x4 Fitment Centre will stock all major 4x4 accessories and parts as well as provide a modern fitment center to fit anything from suspensions to canopies and everything in between.
Turtles on the Elephant Coast
We are offering you an affordable opportunity to join one of our overland tours in collaboration with Out There Overland Travel to the stunning Elephant Coast, situated along the pristine eastern shores of South Africa.
Witness one of the miracles of nature as the loggerhead and leatherback turtle hatchlings make their way to the surf, hours after taking their first breath of air.
Watch in awe as the little hatchlings spend the first moments of their lives in a race for survival. After hatching from their eggs, laid in the sand dunes, they crawl as fast as their little flippers will allow, on a seemingly endless journey to the water’s edge where they will swim off to drift in the ocean currents. They will spend the next few years at sea, not seeing landing again, until they are old enough to produce their own off-spring.
This is an experience of a lifetime.
And what would a visit to the Elephant Coast be without seeing any elephants? Our safari takes us to one of KZN’s most beautiful game reserves which features the Big 5, and more, including the Painted Dog, or Wild Dog as they are more commonly called, and some incredible bird life.
A bush and beach safari with a difference that can’t be missed.

Remember to visit us in store for all your necessities and utilities for this great adventure.
Latest News: New staff, new products at Natal Caravans & Marine
Natal Caravans & Marine are excited to announce that they have recently acquired the franchise for Invader Off-Road Campers. Geoff Courtis MD of Natal Caravans & Marine explained – although the deal with Invader was concluded a few months ago we now have stock on our floor and we are super excited to show them off and take orders!”
Both Gavin Kiloh NC&M’s Sales Manager and Geoff recently paid a visit to the Invader factory in Cape Town where they spent time understanding the attention to detail manufacturing process and gained valuable product knowledge.
Dan-Pierre Louw MD of Invader said – “we are very excited about spreading our wings into KZN. We have noticed a fair amount of interest coming from that region and parts of the Eastern Cape. We feel that having Natal Caravans & Marine representing us in KZN will help grow our brand and offer a “state of the art” service centre for our existing Invader owners. Natal Caravans & Marine is the oldest caravan dealer in the country with an outstanding reputation for good honest dealings with their customers and therefore it was an easy decision to make the appointment. We wish Geoff and his team success and we look forward to a long and rewarding relationship”
Natal Caravans and Marine will be introducing several new and innovative trailer, caravan and motorhome brands into the KZN region. The first brands to hit the showroom floor are Eagle luggage trailers and Echo off-road trailers and caravans. This will be followed by Quantum Luxury Caravans, Invader Off-Road Camping Trailers and motorhomes from Motorhome-World.
This isn’t the only exciting development at Natal Caravans and Marine – owner Geoff Courtis is also enhancing his staff complement with two big names in the caravan industry: Gavin Kolih and Cindy Powell.
After having spent 34 years with his family business, Durban Caravans, which was sold to Imperial in 2013 and operated under Durban Caravans, Gavin has made the decision to resign from Durban Caravans and has now joined the “old enemy”.
Gavin says: “I shares Geoff’s vision of continuing to enhance Natal Caravans & Marine’s enviable reputation by offering a variety of excellent quality innovative products for all caravaning activities, presenting the customer with varied choices and options.”
Geoff & Gavin firmly believe that with their combined experience, knowledge and passion for caravaning, they will be able to offer their customers an unrivalled experience of “One World Outdoors”.
Cindy Powell, who ran Gavin’s Campworld shop for the last five years, has also made the move with him. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and will be joining the friendly and familiar faces in the Parts & Accessories shop. Cindy will also be introducing some new and innovative caravan and camping accessories.
Natal Caravans & Marine have been officially awarded the Motorhome-World franchise for KZN.
Geoff Courtis MD of Natal Caravans & Marine: “Our relationship with Motorhome-World’s sister company Bobo Campers and the Bouwers family goes way back to the early 90’s when we supplied motorhomes to Bobo Campers in their early days before they started to manufacture their own rental units. There has been no representation of new motorhomes in KZN in recent years and with Gavin Kiloh joining us recently with the expertise that he brings in motorhome sales we believe this will be an exciting and valuable addition to our offering”. Dennis Bouwers (MD) and Carl Stassen (GM) of Motorhome-World recently showed Geoff and Gavin around their manufacturing facility in Atlantis Cape Town. This appointment adds to the existing dealer network of Kennis Caravans & Motorhomes in Gauteng and Tygerberg Caravans in the Western Cape offering Motorhome-World clients country-wide service and backup.
