Hi Helke and Tony

Just thought I’d drop you a line to tell you that our 2 week trip with the van went really well and we both had a great time. Your course was invaluable and we learnt so much for which we are very grateful.

The towing and reversing worked like clockwork using your teachings and tips and we even had compliments from others at how well we reversed the van into the site!

And I have to report that the Elecbrake App that Tony was very dubious about actually worked extremely well and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to use it again; although probably no good for Tony as you do need a Smart Phone for the App!


All the very best…

Good morning Helke and Tony


Happy New Year!!!


I hope you had a very Merry Christmas doing exactly as you pleased and being

spoilt by family and friends.


I really must apologise for not emailing before now and thanking you for a wonderful

learning and motivating day when both Steven and I came and did our caravan towing

course with you.  It still makes me smile and feel confident to get out there get my van

registered and book to come for another reversing lesson and ‘check’ how I have packed

it etc.


The tuition lunch (sandwiches were the best ever.. thanks) and the sharing of your expertise

and knowledge were worth every cent and minute not to count for confidence you gave..

Thanks so very  much.


I wish you the very best for 2019 and trust you enjoy good health, prosperity happiness and



Kind regards

Dear Tony and Helke,

Just a quick note to thank you very much for the towing course last week.  You were both very accommodating,  helpful, keen to share your knowledge, easy to talk to, approachable and patient.  The lunch was excellent and Ron is now confident in towing & reversing a caravan-he wasn’t before the day with you both.


Many thanks to you both and we’d be more than happy to recommend your course.

Kind regards,

Diet coke Carryn and Leadfoot Ron

Hi Tony and Helke,
Thank you again for such a fantastic day last Thursday. We both received a tonne of information and now both have a new found confidence in our towing and caravaning ability.

We really appreciated the personal one-on-one training and can’t wait to utilize all the tips we picked up.

All the best for your upcoming trip to Tassie. Stay safe and hopefully we will see you soon (either up in Gympie or on the road)!!!!!!


Kind regards

Shane and Melissa

Hi Helke & Tony

Thank you for our training day yesterday. We had a fun day and feel much more confident in our skills, especially reversing. Tony’s safety instructions are second to none and we will always have them in mind when travelling.

Tony has given great tips on necessary purchases that will definitely save us money.

You are providing an invaluable service and doing an amazing job.

Highlight of the day – watching Helke reverse the van into the shed with mind blowing precision.

We couldn’t be happier with the training and the wonderful hospitality… so glad we did this.

Nice people – good day 🙂

Thanks again – Ivan & Michelle

Hi Helke & Tony

Well just arrived home. A lot of discussion on the way home – all very
positive. Linda much happier after our training today. Even said lets
just do it and get a van. Yahoo.

Thank-you for a fantastic day, fun filled and with so much information
that you don’t get in books or in online forums.

We are now really exited about the holiday rather than being worried
about the trip towing the van.

Again thanks for a great learning experience. We are both still in awe
about Helke’s reversing skills putting your van in the shed.

Thanks – Linda & Cam

Hi Helke & Tony,

Just a quick email to thank you very much for the day/course yesterday.  I feel much more confident in my skill to reverse the van, also what to do if the van gets the wobbles.  Alan said he also picked up some great tips.

We have ordered a ladder and it is being delivered to our sons home in Darwin, thank you for sharing.

Thank you also for your wonderful hospitality, we will spread the word.

Cheers and happy travelling,

Jane and Alan.
