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.

Hi Tony and Helke,
I wanted to thank you for the very informative and helpful information we received today.

Both your knowledge and way of offering your experiences to us was easily understood and very relevant to our situation. After 10 years of caravanning I came away with much more than I ever expected.
You should be very proud of your work- it is exceptional.I will have no hesitation in recommending your services.

Dear Tony and Helke, Just a note to thank you both for the very informative day accompanied by a lovely lunch on Thursday. You certainly know your job and pass on your knowledge in a professional and very friendly way. All the notes you supplied are excellent and we referred to them regularly in our remaining three days on the road. Cheryl and I learnt a lot and we will have no hesitation recommending you both to other novice caravaners that we may meet. Maybe you should have some business cards made to give to those that ask, along with fridge magnets. Hopefully our paths will cross again as we would love to catch up with you both again socially.
