“On 26/01/13, Australia day,we had our 10mth old 24ft Spaceland caravan,our home away from home settled in at Hillcrest Caravan Park Burrum Heads.  We arrived 2 days prior to the 26th. About 3am on the 27th a tornado (yes a tornado) ripped through Hillcrest Caravan Park, destroying almost the entire park. Our van sustained approx $30,000 in damage.


We contacted Wide Bay Caravans (Whatever Qld) which is a Caravan & Cabinet Business located in Scullett Drive Tin Can Bay. Steve & his partner, the gorgeous Nickey, who own the business were right on the ball. They arranged for the assessor to survey our van & a few days later were given the go ahead to do the repairs.


The wife & myself popped in a couple of days a week to see how things were progressing. We were amazed at the workmanship & detail & finish to our Van when we picked it up ahead of schedule. Steve, my Van is testimony to your skills, its a mobile billboard.


I would recommend Wide Bay Caravans (Whatever Qld), Steve & Nickey to any caravaner that visits Tin Can Bay. Steve & Nickey run a well stocked shop with all the goodies, and you must check out the modern workshop.”

“We lost a wheel on the Savannah Way in far North Queensland, doing considerable damage to our van.  The wheel had punched up into the wheel arch lifting the floor, twisting the chassis rail and trailer mate hitch and bent the rear bumper on exit.  All the cupboards were twisted as the seat above the wheel arch connected to the cabinetry of the kitchen and the outer skin was buckled…well…..there you have it….a mess.  

We tried to get it assessed as we travelled south. Four caravan repair businesses didn’t want to touch it because they were already very busy, or they didn’t want to quote in case it was written off.  When we stopped in Tin Can Bay we discovered Wide Bay Caravans (Whatever Qld). Steve and Nickey were fantastic!!  We were faced with the possibility of losing our van and having our trip around with our kids incomplete.  

We now have a van that not only looks new, it looks better. Wide Bay Caravans (Whatever Qld) handled all the insurance and made the whole experience painless. Fantastic service, Fantastic workmanship, Thank you!”
