The Minett Family
We are currently in Augathella, outback Qld and heading to the Boulia Camel Races, then onto Karumba in the gulf. It is nearly 3 years since taking delivery of our 2018 Retreat Fraser 210C and we still love the comfort and set up of our van complimented with having the flexibility to free camp. We are so happy with the Fraser we are looking forward to upgrading again to another Retreat Fraser 210C next year. The Minett family,
From Anne and Geoff Gidley
Thank you Parravans staff for a
seamless purchase and handover of our new Eternity caravan.
From the sales staff to the handover by Ryan we were very pleased with the process. Ryan was very knowledgeable and helpful with explanations and tips for use in the van.
We are confident that any issues or advice needed will be given by the wonderful staff at Parravans. We have joined the Facebook group and look forward to sharing other people's experiences and advice.
We are very happy and excited.
Once again thank you all.
We absolutely love our Monument.
The purchase and handover of our van was exceptional at Parravans,
Heatherbrae Newcastle. The staff were very helpful and polite. The
guy (Ryan I think his name was) that showed us how to use the van
was fantastic, he answered all our questions and was very
We have not used our van yet but we are going out to Keepit Dam on the weekend to give it a try.
Thank you all for your friendly faces and for all the help in choosing our van.
We will be recommending you to all our friends.
The Pallister Family
What can we say... Our experience buying a van from you
was wonderful. Jen, Brendan, Mike and the rest of the team (sorry I
can't remember all your names), you were all amazing. From turning
up to look at buying a new van, to taking possession of our van,
nothing was a problem. Any questions we had were answered and dealt
with, if not immediately, within a short time. Cannot fault the way
we were treated.

OUR NEW ETERNITY MONUMENT
I was very happy with purchase as we searched high and low for the right van but nothing took our fancy till we saw the monument. It is everything we could ask for and had so many compliments,
the sales side couldn't be faulted very professional and couldn't do enough for us when we came to pick the van up, was the first time I have ever been thoroughly run through van before the sale - it was very refreshing will be highly recommending you thanks again for everything.
We are very happy with our prices and service from Parravans
Newcastle. The whole process so far has been very pleasant and the
experience confirmed that we made the right choice to do business
with a reputable dealer.
We have the feeling that Parravans does not just see business as a transaction but aims to build a relationship. One that you come back for.
Nearly 2 months in and we are absolutely loving our new Fraser 26ft rig.
The Parravans team were awesome!
This amazing journey started from day 1 with Michael and Mike.
Their help and knowledge is second to none. Jen and Kate kept us up
to date and assured during the whole build process.Right through to
handover with Ryan. A true credit to Parravans. Bloody Legend.
Jackie made sure our new home away from hoe was sparkling and we
are so grateful for her hardwork. We love adventures and making
memories with our 4 little lads.
Thank you again
Bo, Kris & the 4 little Newell lads
A huge thanks!
"A huge thank you and thumbs up to Kate, Ryan, Jamie and the team of Parravans in Heatherbrea Newcastle. It is always a pleasure to catch up with these guys everytime we call in for a service.
We are so pleased with the quality of service work they provide on our van and the customer service.
12 months ago today we became a Retreat caravan owner and we are so happy we made that decesion"

Our First Trip Away
The Candlish Family
Over The Moon!
We are over the moon with our new Retreat Caravan so a big thanks to all the staff at parravans Newcastle. We really appreciate Jen with all her assistance during the past few months and the handover with Ryan last Friday was great. Full of info and tips.
We will stay in touch and will call in again to purchase some more accessories down the track and we will join the retreat Facebook group.
Kind regards, Brett and Jenny Woodman.
Thanks Ryan. He certainly knows his vans!
I am a member of Retreat Caravans Family group on FB, it is a place where members can share everything caravans. The site often has caravan owners needing answers. I cannot give enough credit to Ryan Blume of PARRAVANS NEWCASTLE for his dedication to assist people & fixing problems. I'm sure this is in his nature to help. I don't know him personally, but he certainly knows his vans.

The after sales service on our new Eternity has been great. From the first moment when the fridge wiring had to be fixed, we have been back in twice for a 1,500 klms service and some minor adjustments after our latest 3,500klms trip. Ryan has been amazing in his knowledge, advice and ability to make the necessary adjustments in a short space of time. The caravan is therefore a dream to tow, fun to live in and always knowing if anything does need fixing there are people with the knowledge to do so.
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for assisting us last week with delivery of our Fraser 219B and for attending to the minor warranty issues on Friday for us. Much appreciated that you guys went out of your way to assist us straight away, without having to return at a later date for the warranty work, saving us an 8-hour round trip.
Your handover at delivery was excellent and informative and we are relatively comfortable in using most of the things we need for now :-)
Dear Business Owner/Director,
We are writing this email to say thank you to Retreat Newcastle, but particularly Ryan Blume, Service Dept.
Recently travelling to Shepparton, we called into Retreat Newcastle as our fridge wasn't working.
Ryan had a quick look, diagnosed problem and rang Dometic and Repairer in Shepparton so part can be delivered on time.
Thank you for going out of your way… You have been fantastic, thanks Ryan.
A Big Thank you!
Just had our first service at Parravans. A big thank you to Ryan for all his help, goes above and beyond. A great asset to the company. Love our new Fraser. Five star rating.
Thanks Team, especailly Ryan, Kate and Jen. We are absolutely stoked in our new Van, second trip so far and everything was awesome. Cheers to many more to come.
