Take a break and escape the office the Maui way

Take a break and escape the office the Maui way

Maui Motorhomes is doing its bit to help Australians take back control of their workaholic lives in time for the summer holidays.

Hot on the heels of new research from Tourism Australia, Maui has launched a brand new Platinum motorhome so that couples and families can make the most of their precious holiday time in style and comfort.

Research shows Australians are working their lives away. Employees have stockpiled a staggering 123 million days, or $33.3 billion in wages, of accrued annual leave*.

Statistics reveal one in four Australian full-time employees have accrued 25 days or more in leave and more than two thirds of men stockpile their leave compared to only a third of women. This stockpiled leave is taking a toll on the health of employees, who choose to stay at work rather than take a well-earned break, and affects the performance and morale where they work.

The launch of Maui Platinum model brings with it the ultimate in luxury, comfort and safety for the traveller who wants nothing but the best. This outstanding vehicle can cater for up to 6 or provide a couple with spacious five star travel.


Angela Taylor, Maui Motorhomes Brand Manager, said the introduction of the Maui Platinum delivers the vital ingredients important to Maui customers – safety, reliability, quality, comfort and smart design. “The Maui Platinum goes above and beyond traditional campervans to provide our customers with first class travel,” she said. “There’s no better way to take advantage of accrued leave, get out of the office and escape the day to day routine.”

The Maui Platinum is the epitome of luxurious and smart design with leather upholstery. The automatic transmission and reverse safety cameras help with ease of driving. Make sure you don’t forget to pack your DVDs for those rainy days; with a TV screen and DVD player the kids will be entertained for hours. The electric wind out awning and electric exterior step mean that setting up a shady outdoors area is almost instant.

There are also three comfortable double beds, a large bathroom complete with a separate toilet and shower, including a massage head to unwind at the end of a long drive. There is ample room and large, user-friendly storage areas for your golf clubs. The vehicle is powered by a turbo charged four-cylinder diesel engine and boasts apartment-style kitchen equipment, from a coffee plunger and wine glasses to electric kettle and superior cutlery and china, alongside a range of convenient home-style comforts. Maui really does think of everything to make your trip as easy and comfortable as possible.

The latest addition to Australia’s Maui fleet drives home Maui’s commitment to continuallyinvest in design and new models and its determination to raise the bar in the self-drive campervan market.

Maui Platinum campervan hire is available through Maui in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane for bookings now and for travel from December 15, 2009. Bookings can be made by calling 1300 363 800 or visit
