The Explorer Motorhome team


John Burke

Market Development & Sales

CEO John Burke started Explorer motorhomes in 2010 having previously spent 26 years as a marine dealer in Bundaberg Queensland. After selling his marine business in 2006 he was able to spend more time travelling around Australia, and quickly realised there was an opportunity for a 4WD motor home that was of high quality and easy to use.

In the marine industry John was in close association with David Ridings, who built Raider ski boats and Seaquest Cruisers. His experience of fibreglass moulding was essential to the creation of Explorer motorhomes which have a unique feature of being one fibreglass mould, stronger, lighter, no seams to leak, and the best insulation on the RV market, plus the front is aerodynamically designed to offer improved fuel economy.

David Ridings

Production Management

Production Director David Ridings is kept very busy in the factory he owns at Clontarf Redcliffe QLD handling the orders for the growing number of discerning travellers wanting a robust vehicle with the opportunity to customise to their needs.

David's 30 years designing and building the popular Raider fibreglass Inboard ski boats and then designing from scratch and building the successfull range of SeaQuest Cruisers, 28ft to 36ft is now seen in the quality of this unique fibreglass one piece moulded Motorhome. You only have to speak to one of our 250+ Explorer Motorhome owners to feel confident David will deliver a superb Motorhome with a 5 year structural warranty available any where in Australia.
Together they have created Explorer Motorhomes which has become established among the grey nomads as the motorhome of choice if you're an off road traveller who wants to see the most of Australia.

We are passionate about customer commitment

Every single one of our motorhomes are custom made to order. We take special care to make sure every customer gets exactly what they are wanting.


become part of our family of owners

Our motorhomes are custom built to clients requirements, so there is a deep commitment by the Explorer team to ensure your wishes are understood and met. We appreciate this is a big decision and will spend time with you to advise you on model, colours and interiors.

Throughout the build you are welcome to see how your motorhome is progressing, and when it comes to the handover, time is spent going over all the aspects of the motorhome ensuring you commence your adventures with full knowledge on the workings of your Explorer. You also have the confidence of knowing your motorhome is covered by a 5 year structural warranty.

Your motorhome might have a build number, but you as a customer are certainly not a number, but a member of a close family of owners who love nothing better than being out and about and sharing their experiences.

We have a facebook group page exclusively set for owners so you can talk to other owners abut your motorhome and find out places to visit.
