Learn how to tow your Caravan or Camper Trailer Safely, Correctly
& Confidently with the Experts from Global Gypsies!

This course is ideal for anyone who tows a caravan, camper trailer, boat trailer, horse float, promotional trailer or work trailer. Learn new skills, brush up on your existing skills & improve your towing confidence. And award-winning trainers Global Gypsies will even come to your home to deliver the course at no extra cost if you live in/near Perth CBD!

Book a half-day PERSONAL caravan towing training session with Tour Guide of the Year Jeremy Perks or one of our Senior Towing Trainers on dates & at venues to suit you. And because it's just you & the instructor, our unique one-on-one training course complies with recommended hygiene practices.

Attend a course BEFORE you head off on your great round Australia trip, then relax and enjoy your holiday knowing you're towing safely, correctly and with confidence.

The session has both theoretical & practical content & is flexible enough to focus on the skills that you want to learn most. It covers such topics as hitching, reversing, parking, packing, leveling, highway driving and more & gives you plenty of time for valuable hands-on practice supervised by an expert. You'll also receive a comprehensive information pack.

You need your own (or a hired) vehicle & caravan or camper-trailer to participate. Why not hire a camper-trailer, take a short 'trial run' holiday & build in an extra day to do your towing training? Recommended camper-trailer hire companies in Perth are Camper Trailers WA or West Oz Camper Trailers

Just a quick note to thank you and our teacher Eddy for our towing & reversing course. It was most informative and he did great getting my wife involved, she really enjoyed it. Please thank Eddy for his professionalism, his patience and above all his kindness. We both feel so much more confident now and if it ever stops raining we can't wait to go back and put into practice all he taught us.

Thank you Global Gypsies for a fantastic towing training session! We learnt so much, many things which we would not have even thought about, and feel ready to head off now ... confidently. We have suggested to our son and daughter in law to do the course too. They are enthusiastic campers and want to take our camper trailer away. We've told them the course must come before any borrowing!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4WD Training Course with Ken yesterday and wanted to pass on our thanks. He was professional, friendly, encouraging and very informative. Throughout the day he provided us with a range of opportunities to grow our confidence in both the capabilities of our vehicle, ourselves and each other while maintaining awareness of safety and our precious environment. The training location was fabulous and the ‘drive-out’ on the chosen track was just what we needed to encourage us to make plans to ensure we make time to go 4WDing again very soon to apply what we learnt. Many thanks to you all!

We would like to thank you for the wonderful towing course last Sunday - you will probably save a marriage and our popularity by introducing us to non-verbal parking! The day was very informative and quite relaxing and we have since been practising in our lounge room!!! We would certainly recommend you and may even squeeze in a 4WD course before our second adventure later this year.

Happy Travels!

We just wanted to pass on our thanks and appreciation to Jeremy for his patience with us during our Towing Training course and for meeting us at George Day Caravans to assist with preparing our van for travel.

We learned so much and came away feeling so much more confident in towing our new 20’ caravan. As newbies to this style of travelling we felt that gaining some skills and knowledge can only be a good thing and we certainly felt that we were provided with excellent value for money.

Jeremy’s teaching was easy to follow and the tips and tricks passed on were invaluable. We managed the four hour trip home without incident and feeling more confident as the kilometres passed. The van towed so beautifully. We made it home just on dark and thankfully no kangaroos In sight to test out just how well the braking system works.

I think that everyone who is new to caravanning and towing should have to spend some time with someone like Jeremy. Such a lovely person and so willing to share his vast knowledge and skills.

We hope to be able to join you on one of your trips in future and wish you well with your upcoming adventures. Safe travels to you all.

Kind regards,

Had our training course today and would like to say what a pleasurable experience it was! Jeremy couldn't have been more affable and engaging and the efficiency and friendliness of the office staff exemplary. The information passed on will help us a great deal in our future travels & the information folder will be going in the van for future reference. Many thanks to you all

"We just want to say what a wonderful time we had last week with the towing training course. Your instructor was very courteous and patient which made the day very enjoyable; and, of course, we came away with more knowledge and confidence in our towing. Thank you all for providing a wonderful training course!"

"We took a towing training course yesterday & learned so much! We also now have much more confidence! We're so grateful for all the lessons and tips that Jeremy gave and for the workbook - so helpful! I'm so glad there are people like you out there to help us newbies go through the first and scary phase of owning a caravan. Thanks heaps from both Danny and myself!"
