Partnership between Caravan Industry Association of Australia and DLL brings new and innovative floorplan financing solutions to the Australian caravanning and camping industry

< Date: 29 September 2021

DLL, a global asset finance partner, is the latest company which Caravan Industry Association of Australia welcomes to its National Industry Sponsor family. The Caravan Industry Association of Australia and DLL’s Commercial Finance Business Unit will work together to bring awareness of DLL’s floorplan financing solutions to RV and caravan manufacturers and dealers.

Headquartered in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, DLL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rabobank Group, with a portfolio of over €35Bn. Not only do they help finance some of the world’s largest RV companies, but many of us also benefit unknowingly from DLL with your photocopier, or computer software potentially supported through a DLL finance solution.

Caravan Industry Association of Australia CEO Stuart Lamont was excited by the relationship, which would aim to increase exposure of the DLL brand to the Australian caravanning and camping industry in return for financial support. This will continue to allow the Association to deliver on it’s core pillars of marketing, advocacy, research, and compliance and accreditation.

“The more we investigated the finance products available to industry businesses through DLL, the more excited we became,” said Mr. Lamont.

“Whether it was floorplan for RV product, or customized chattel finance solutions for the likes of manufacturing equipment, golf carts or fleet vehicles through to cabin financing for caravan holiday parks, DLL can provide financing solutions for our wide range of industry sectors.”

DLL has more than 50 years of global industry experience and has been heavily involved in the agricultural sector within Australia for over 25 years. In recent years, they have strongly expanded their worldwide RV exposure and are committed to growing the local RV portfolio in Australia and New Zealand.

Daniel Foster, Country Sales Manager of Commercial Finance for DLL, is already very familiar with the Australian RV market and is excited and passionate about helping grow the sector even further.

“The market is changing rapidly and so too is the need for innovative and customised financing solutions to allow to keep up,” Mr. Foster said.

He recognises that in today’s world finance companies need to be more than just a transactional partner, and he is keen to build genuine and sustainable business partnerships.

“The Australian RV industry is very much a growth sector in the Australian economy, and we are very excited by its continued prospects. We look forward to growing with the industry and supporting it, starting with our partnership with Caravan Industry Association of Australia.”

One RV company already benefitting from their DLL relationship is Apollo, with CEO and Managing Director, Luke Trouchet saying, “What we really like about DLL is the flexibility it offers. Rather than just helping us with some of our financing, the company has the ability to be that all-encompassing partner to us. Since DLL has come onboard, we have been extremely impressed with their service and offering.”
