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.”
The Bullish Adventurer competition was launched in conjunction with the new National Towing Guide website, with Pedders and Jayco supporting the initiative and coming together to offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win the ultimate adventure package, worth $200, 000.
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.”
