Caravan Industry Association of Australia brought the caravanning and camping lifestyle into the homes of millions of Australians last Thursday 25th June morning under the Let’s Go consumer brand as part of a cooperative with Australia’s number one morning show, Sunrise.

Sunrise hosts Kochie, Sam, Beretts and Nat landed in Brisbane Wednesday 24th June to collect their Kratzmann Franklin caravans after completing a towing course in Sydney under the instruction and supervision of Tow-Ed. The hosts arrived at Kratzmann Caravans north of Brisbane with the cash cow in tow and were excited to inspect their caravans and homes for the night. Gary Kratzmann was on hand to do the official handover and highlight the features and comforts they would enjoy.


The hosts soon hit the road as they would broadcast live from the Gold Coast Holiday Park the following morning and would need to tow their caravans down the M1 and set up on their powered sites for the night.

Arriving at the park a few hours later the hosts reversed into their powered sites and set up their caravan spot for the evening! It may have taken a little longer than the experienced caravanners to set up but there was plenty of laughs and good entertainment for onlookers!

Starting early on the Thursday our happy campers were live to air broadcasting for the next 3 or more hours, throughout the morning they highlighted and discussed the joy, the challenges and benefits of their experience and how they learnt more about each other! Kochies campfire singing and Marks BBQ-ing were topical.

Also on the same day,  Eddy who is currently on her Lets Go Caravanning & Camping ‘Lap of the Map’ promotion towing a Tvan broadcasted the weather live from Adventure Whitsundays. Throughout the weather segments Edwina and the hosts shared their camping experiences, and Eddy offered some friendly advice and welcomed them to the joys of hitting the road like she has done for the past 5 months.

This cooperative was an opportunity for Caravan Industry Association of Australia to bring the reality of a caravan and camping holiday to life, not only for the Sunrise hosts, but for the millions of Australians who tune in everyday.

Over the three-hour live broadcast from Gold Coast Holiday Park, Sam, Kochie, Beretts and Nat showed their entire journey – from pick up, through set-up, and the best bit – the fun at the park after dark.

We would also like to make special thanks to Tow-Ed, Kratzmanns Caravans, and Gold Coast Holiday Park for their assistance.
