Meet the team

Rhys Hunter - Owner / Director

After 20 years in the marine industry Rhys made the shift to RVs, starting Road Life, with wife Michele, in 2017. Rhys has a passion for all things technical and is always on hand to offer advice to our experienced workshop team. He and Michele have a son and daughter, both at primary school. When he’s not running Road Life, or spending time with family, you’ll find him fishing, tinkering with race cars or driving them at one of the NZ tracks.

Michele Hunter - Owner / Marketing

Michele has a background in daily journalism and still loves to hear a good yarn! At Road Life she’s our go-to person for marketing - looking after the website, advertising and regular newsletters to our customers. She is also a busy mum to hers and Rhys’ two children and enjoys getting away in her own 1970s retro caravan. She loves walking round the Mount – and enjoying a wine with friends afterwards!

April Eveleigh - Administration

is our office admin super star and organiser of all things Road Life. She hails from Gissy and has the can-do attitude and sense of humour to match. She and her husband enjoy a motorbike ride on a sunny summer’s day, and she loves to welcome our customer back from their own travels. Much to the staff’s appreciation, April also has a knack for winning radio competitions – including the odd office shout!

Leanne Kappel - Sales Manager

Leanne heads up Road Life’s sales team. With a background in sales and design, she has a keen eye for detail. When she’s not helping match customers with the right motorhome or caravan, she's managing the ordering and logistics to bring new ranges to Road Life. Off the sales yard she enjoys exploring the Bay with her two daughters and husband. Always keen to hear about your travels, Leanne is the friendly face of Road Life to lots of our loyal customers.

Roger Heslop - Motorhome Technician

Roger is a highly experienced joiner and cabinet maker by trade and can turn his hand to any technical task. He loves music and is always keen for a live concert – enjoying most of them with his wife, and the couple’s two adult children. He keeps the sounds going on the yard and has plenty of good stories from his time living overseas.

Dave Bamford - Motorhome Technician

Dave is a wealth of technical knowledge and is always willing to help out. Dave commits to solving issues and goes the extra mile for customers. He loves classic cars and travels hundreds of kilometres each week on his mountain bike – ‘relaxing’ after a busy day at work. He and his wife are long-time Tauranga locals and together they have owned and run a number of iconic local businesses.

Andy Moir - Sales Consultant

Andy and his wife recently returned to the Bay from Taranaki. Andy is a keen Kontiki fisherman and has more than 30 years’ experience in the motor vehicle industry. He’s the man to talk to if you want to get a great price for your current vehicle - or it's time to upgrade to a brand-new luxury motorhome or caravan.

Joel Solomons - Vehicle Groomer & Workshop Assistant

Joel is the newest addition to the Road Life team and does a fantastic job getting motorhomes and caravans sparkling, ready for handing over to their new owners. He is learning the ropes from our experienced technical team while ensuring everyone’s vehicle leave the yard in ship shape condition
