In February the National Towing Guide website was officially launched; an initiative supported by the national and state association bodies. The website was designed to support the existing printed copy.
In the past 12 months, over a quarter of a million printed copies were distributed via state run industry shows and initiatives. The website was created to acknowledge consumer behaviour and the expectation for access online. The website and printed copies ensure broad reach, carrying the message of safety and expert advice, contributing to safer roads.
As part of this, we launched a promotion supported by Jayco and Pedders Suspension, offering people the opportunity to enter The Bullish Adventurer competition and take home a fully customised Ford Ranger PXII and a Jayco Adventurer 19ft off-road caravan. In this time, the website received tens of thousands of page hits, providing advice and guidance to Australians.
The winner (a young family from Evans Head, NSW who love camping) has now been announced and they are ecstatic!
Michel Fowkes and her family have always loved caravanning and camping.
Earlier this year, she was browsing on the Jayco website with her sister when they came across The Bullish Adventurer competition.
Michel submitted her entry, never thinking she would actually take home the prize of the fully customized Ford Ranger PXII and a Jayco Adventurer 19ft off-road caravan.
When she found out she’d won, she describes the moment as ‘surreal’.
“It was amazing, it’s the best prize,” she said.
“We’d been talking and joking about what we’d do if we won, but didn’t think it would actually happen!”
“We’ve done a six month trip in a caravan before and have always talked about getting another one, so this is amazing.”
Michel, along with her husband Leigh and their two kids, has always love caravanning and camping.
“We go camping as often as we can. I just love getting the kids outside; it’s one of my favourite things and it’s good quality family time,” she said.
“We would love to do Uluru before the end of the year, it’s always been on our bucket list. We’re not sure where else we’ll go – everywhere! There are a lot of places within a few hours of home that we can easily go to for a weekend.”
“We just want to say a huge thank you to Jayco and Pedders, it’s such an amazing prize. It’s awesome.”
