Ethan and some of the team from Caravan HQ recently took a couple of On The Move Caravans away for a long weekend trip in the stunning Gold Coast hinterland. While he was there, he took the time to give a On The Move Caravans 18’6 Traxx Series 3 walk through.
It certainly looks like he is a fan of the 18’6 Traxx series 3. And what a stunning location to spend the weekend.
From all accounts, the team had a great time, and the caravans handled it like a dream. We will be looking forward to seeing more photos and video from this trip in the not too distant future.

Imagine – you’re rolling into a caravan park, you park up and it’s immediately clear you’ve all got one thing in common – you’re all On The Move owners!
That’s what greeted the 100 people invited to the 2023 On The Move Owners Meet, an exclusive weekend designed to bring together those who love life out on the open road.
Unless you’re at a caravan show you almost never see so many vans of the same brand in one location, but there were so many On The Move owners at the campground at Hidden Camp Pie Creek near Gympie, the venue was totally booked out.
Celebrity TV host and new Caravan HQ ambassador Scotty Hillier – otherwise known as Australia’s favourite larrikin fishing presenter – came to partake in the fun.
And he had an absolute ball – especially spending time fishing with the kids and sharing his secrets to reeling a big one in. He showed them how to put worms on a hook like a pro and cast a rod.
“That’s something I love doing,” he said.
“Caravanning is not just about the van, it’s about the lifestyle, it’s about what you could be doing and this event is a great example of that. You can park yourself up, go and do some fishing, bushwalking, or four-wheel-driving – there’s so many different things you can do and experience, make memories for life.
“Kevin, Ethan and the whole team at Caravan HQ and On The Move are just fantastic.”
Travellers Rita and David, who’ve clocked nearly 100,000km in their On The Move van over the last five years, enjoyed the camaraderie of the weekend.
“You rarely see other On The Move vans but when you do it’s in random places and you get on the UHF and say hi, but here, you’re talking to people with the same vans. It’s easy to make friends because you’ve got something in common already.”
His wife Rita said when they rolled in they immediately had compliments from other owners.
“They said our van looks brand new even though we’ve had it for five years and that’s down to how David looks it,” she said.

Hidden Camp at Pie Creek is aptly named – it’s a real hidden gem, complete with all camping facilities you’d need to be comfortable and a lagoon to cool down in. It was a perfect location for the 60 plus van owners to connect with each other and do what they love, travel, explore and build new relationships.
Every morning the On The Move caravanners were treated to the delicious aroma of sizzling bacon, with hosts Kevin, Ethan, Robin and the rest of the Caravan HQ crew starting the day from behind the barbeque. The day kicked off not just with breakfast but with a series of adventures – from the thrill of four-wheel-driving, to casting lines off the stunning Rainbow Beach and indulging in a laid-back wine tasting. As the sun set, the days ended around the crackling campfire, with stories flowing freely and a dream of life on the road became reality.
Couple Lyn and David, who own a Traxx Series 2 van said they learned so much from both fellow caravanners and the On The Move team during the event.
“We’ve met some new friends and listened to some beautiful stories and found new places to go – everyone here has been sharing a lot,” she said.
David said the couple had been fans of the caravan life since they started 15 years ago, but even now after so long they continued to learn – and that was all down to events like this.
“There’s still a lot that we don’t know and it’s just a matter of learning from people who’ve done it before – not people in sales rooms, we’ve learnt a lot from these kinds of campgrounds. Without putting this event together, we would never know,” he said.
Traxx Series owners Ken and Tracey, who plan to travel around Australia next year once they retire, said they were very excited to get the invitation for the event.
“It’s been very exciting watching everyone drive in and see all of the vans together,” Tracey said.
“There’s a real community spirit here, everyone who is here loves their vans and everyone is happy. It’s really exciting to be here with everyone who’s got an On The Move van.”
