The Enduro mover has been very beneficial to the staff members who access the Street Surfer (recreational trailer). It has allowed us to run sessions in places which are limited in space. We have been able to detach the trailer from the car with more ease and position the trailer more freely.
The Enduro mover has also been important for our OH&S issues. Having the remote control to navigate the direction of the trailer has reduced the heavy lifting duties when operating the Street Surfer.
Our daughter ordered an Aeroplus wind deflector for us, on Sunday 3rd February. On Monday 4th, we received word that it had been dispatched to our address in S.A. and on Wednesday morning, the 6th February, it arrived on our doorstep!!!
We are VERY impressed with the service we received from your company and we can’t wait to try out our new wind deflector. We will certainly recommend your company to others. WELL DONE!!!
We purchased an EGO200 caravan mover, we took delivery of the van yesterday and we operated the mover to put the van into our garage. The whole operation worked a treat, my mate was very impressed and operation with the EGO200 is better than I could imagine. Once again thank you for your service.
Hi Purple Line,
We are now the proud owners of an Enduro caravan mover and everything is working beautifully. It has made working with our Cub camper trailer so much easier and a lot less stressful! We congratulate you on the quality of your product and would gladly recommend it to anyone in need of a remote controlled caravan mover. In fact, we already have...several times!
We would like to make special mention of the company that fitted the caravan mover: Brad at Hodgson's Caravans (Redhead, New South Wales) did an excellent job. Once again we are more than happy to recommend Hodgson's as Purple Line installers.
Thanks again for your help and good luck in the future.
We’re two grey nomads who’d had several dramas reversing into tight spots. So we purchased one of your ENDURO van movers before our big trek around Australia. It was mounted behind the wheels, so no mudflaps and therefore subjected to all the stones and other road rubbish the tyres could throw over the motor units. I must say that it’s been worth every cent for the ease of reconnecting the van, not to mention watching the astonished stares of the onlookers as the van glides alone around obstacles and into position. We drove 93Km of gravel road into Cobbold Gorge and were directed to a corner site through two trees only about two metres apart. The ENDURO van mover, caked in red dirt, deftly manoeuvred our van between the trees and into its spot. After driving in excess of 12,000Km all up, circumventing the eastern half of Australia we can’t recommend your device highly enough.
I found the (E-Go and Auto-Engage) packing of a high quality, well boxed and well protected. The parts were all there and gave me a lot of flexibility in fitting the unit. Laying out the parts before assembly was easy to do and units etc. could be protected by their boxes as the construction took place.
I followed the manuals step by step. I found the illustrations and procedures easy to follow and warnings in the right place. There was also a lot of information on the web re fitting. I found the manuals very good.
Parts were of good quality and presentation. There was plenty of wire and clips etc. to do a very neat build.
On testing the mover, I noticed the way the van moved is dependant on the type of Jockey wheel used. I have three different types and found with one type it put a lot of pressure onto the jockey shaft. The right wheel makes a lot of difference.
Well that's my E-go all fitted and set up.
I would say I received EXCELLENT after sales service.
THANK YOU for all your Help. I'll sing the praises of Purple Line as I travel around.
Having travelled extensively all around our country, reversing into many difficult sites in all types of caravan parks, with the famous saying ‘left-hand down right-hand down’ etc my wife and I came to a decision that there has to be an easier way.
After much research into the many caravan movers either at caravan shows, magazines or on the web, with various claims, this can be confusing. However, after spending some time with Purpleline at the Brisbane Caravan Show we were completely sold on their incredible easy system. The only piece of equipment I have to lift or hold is the remote control, even my wife could use it. This brilliant mover was installed by TowFix a local company which I highly recommend for their professionalism and attention to detail.
I cannot thank Malcolm from Purple Line and Garth Tomkinson from TowFix enough for now making the manoeuvring of our caravan so simple and easy. This is the best money we have ever spent and we highly recommend this caravan mover to fellow caravaners.
I have been looking around for a wheel clamp for a while and was impressed to find one that was made in England; the Nemesis. It was a bit dearer than others, but the quality stood out far beyond the others on the market. Being bright orange the Nemesis stands out very well and has a good strong lock fitted to it complete with a rubber boot to keep the water and dust out. The welds are of good quality and I would happily recommend it to anyone.
I have a twin axle caravan and have installed the two motor E-Go system to the rear axle only, as the front step would not allow a mover to be installed on the front axle.
I bought a 10 inch diameter jockey wheel and I worked out a way to lift the front axle off the ground. I do this by getting the caravan into a position were it is level and then raising the jockey wheel by about 60 to 80 mm. This gets the front wheels off the ground by about 15 to 20mm.
There are no tools required and the process takes about 3 minutes. No gut busting; winding the jockey wheel is the hardest bit of work you have to do.
Once this is done I can turn the caravan as if it were a single axle.
Thanks again it is great.
Dear Purple Line,
My wife and I live in an 'Over 50s Village', on what is commonly referred to as a 'battle-axe' block, which has an attractive curved driveway. Whilst the driveway is aesthetically pleasing, it is impossible to reverse a caravan up it due to being unable to manoeuvre the tow-vehicle sufficiently to swing the van at the final turn. Consequently, it has been necessary for my wife and I to hand push the van up a slight gradient to its home in the car-port. After arriving home – tired from a long journey, this has – till now, been a source of frustration.
I read of your caravan movers in 'On The Road' magazine, and contacted your company by e-mail for more information. The prompt helpful co-operation that I received was extremely pleasing, and after viewing the video to which we were referred, I had no hesitation in ordering the "enduro caravan mover' from you.
As you had intimated to me during a telephone conversation, I – with the aid of my son, found the fitting instructions straight forward and with minimal difficulty were able to install the movers ourselves.
We recently returned from a trip away, and were delighted with the ease with which we were able to return the caravan to its 'home'. I merely back the van on to the driveway – and the movers do the rest!!
My wife and I are more than thrilled with our purchase, and can now look forward to many more caravan adventures without dreading putting the caravan to bed upon our return home.
Please accept my sincere thanks for the friendly and professional manner you used in our transaction and also for the prompt efficient delivery of our movers.
Purple Line, we are very happy with the quality of the ego Caravan mover its nice to have everything in a box that is needed, and the phone support that is available with a quick response relating to information if required relating to your product.it was easy to fit and any handyman would not have no problem fitting the unit. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone that requires the ease to move there van.
Hi Purple Line,
Received the e-go caravan mover within 2 days of ordering. Arrived on the Friday so had no excuses for installing on the weekend. Unit was well packaged and instructions were decent. However, I did review the 2 part installation video plus the video on the bracket installation for Aussie vans a couple of times off your website, which was well worth the investment of time as it just makes it that much easier.
Initially I did have second thoughts as when inspecting my van for the mounting position it seems much harder as the ideal position was ruled out due to the doorway and fold-out step that occupied the prime location. This then had me limited to the rear position. After removing the mud flaps and propping up the drive units to the positions as per the instructions it was obvious that the specially supplied brackets to suit the higher clearance of the Jacyo Outback Expanda where still not suitable. They still didn't have enough drop from the frame to line up with the axle.
Now I was starting to panic! Maybe I had bitten off more than I could chew! In addition, I wasn't convinced that after investing specifically in an off-road high clearance van that the e-go unit was then going to significantly drop the clearance with the low frame of the e-go and would look average with the drive units so visible. After scratching my head and cursing that if there was a hard way of doing anything I'd find it, I finally came up with a workable solution. After contacting you for the OK to tilt the drive units, I was able to solve all problems. By installing the drive units on a 15 deg angle, I was able to keep the drive unit in-line with the axle at the same time lifting the unit up much higher than if kept horizontal. This dramatically increased the clearance of the e-go frame with it now only slightly below the main wheel axle. The position also meant that the supplied bracket had sufficient overlap with the caravan chassis for attachment and lifted the drive units up higher making it a much more aesthetic pleasing look.
The electrical installation was much more straight forward, even for the novice. The Jayco is a well equipped van with the full battery system pre-installed. (We puchased a 6 month old 2010 model and discovered that the previous owners had decided to remove the battery! So another $300 later, but probably ended up with a better battery - AGM 100AH)
I would like to say that I am relatively handy and as stated even with the instructions and video's the job still takes a lot of time. I would have spent a solid 15Hrs in total. I did come across a claim for 3hrs, but you would have to be doing this for a living to achieve this.
So after all this effort, was it worth it? Well if you like gadgets, then you'll be in gadget heaven! I'm on a slight incline on a loose gravel surface. No issues! I do get the occasional slippage when turning, but still have enough adjustment to correct. But generally if it slips, I'd simply use the opposite drive on the remote and manoeuvre without drama. (When I say slipping, it's not the wheels on the gravel, but the drive unit on the tyres)
We have now driven the caravan out onto the street, rotated it and driven it back up the drive hitch first, all with the e-go. We now have the caravan doorway accessible as previously with the van backed in, the door was up against the fence line. We also now have the added benefit that it would be a hell of a job to steal it!
The e-go does the job well, looks great and was reasonably priced against the competition. Now there is no excuse to get away more often as what would take me a day to get the caravan up the drive using a ratchet jockey wheel, now only takes 15min. It would be much quicker, but I literally only have a 50mm overall clearance between trees and other permanent obstacles!
Thanks again for a great product, I'm sure it will generate much interest with my fellow caravaners!
Hi Purple Line. This is the best investment I have made.
I am now able to store our caravan in our front yard right along the side the house and we still have uninterrupted view from our bedroom window.
We could not do that without our remote control caravan mover, It is very easy to maneuver and saves me money from storage.
And of course the convenience of packing and getting away so much quicker and easier.
Hi Purple Line,
Just thought I'd let you know that the Ego 200 that I ordered on Tuesday, arrived today (Friday), looks like I have some work on the weekend!
This has got to be one of the best examples of service I have seen for a long long time!!
From the original email enquiry to the delivery to my door, has been nothing short of outstanding, if there was a 10 star rating on service this would be it.
Thank you once again for the great deal, and the oustanding service. I would certainly recommend you to anyone
Hi Purple Line, I was extremely happy with the manner and quality of the service you provided for the purchase of the Purple Line remote control caravan mover. The product itself has been easy to operate and has made parking the caravan in a tight spot very easy. Your advice regarding a number of issues has been gratefully accepted and have taken you as being exceptionally knowledgeable in the field. I am sure that any after service I require will be given to me in the same manner as the sale service.
Hi Purple Line,
First of all I would like you to know why I decided to buy the E-GO200 Caravan Mover, and in doing so I should point out that I am a very fussy and fastidious person when it comes to buying a product that is new or may be seen as new to the market which I think the EGO is to the Australian Mkt
Recently we added on to the back of our house a large closed in verandah with roller doors adjacent to the driveway, to house our Jayco Freedom 17ft Poptop single axle van. Because of the width of the driveway it is not possible to drive in with the TUG forwards or back the van through the door even though the door is a meter wider than a standard door. Because my wife and I are not young (both over 65, new Grey Nomads) and were getting sick of busting ourselves trying to get the van into position so that we could try to push it into the shed most times with help from neighbors which can be inconvenient some times, so we decided that we had to find a better means of getting the van into and out of the shed?
In the early stages of our frustrations I welded a large eyelet to a plate which in turn was dyna bolted to the floor of the shed which was the anchor for a Block & Tackle which hooked onto the A frame of the Van and would presumably pull it into the shed, this was a dismal failure, and even if it had worked to get the van in, it would have been totally useless for getting the van out onto the driveway and around the corner of the shed to hitch up to the TUG?
We looked at and even tried several other different methods to get the van into the shed, which included manual ratchet movers that fit into the jockey wheel aperature and a small tractor type mover which fit in the towball of the van and of course numerous others, all of these devices proved to be very limited because their drive wheel/s lost traction or bogged on the gravel driveway or slipped on the concrete inside the shed when weight transfer of the van occured pulling the van up the very slight ramp.
At this stage it became very obvious if we were going to settle for a mover that fitted to the "A" frame of the van we would have to concrete or asphalt the driveway, at least in front of the the shed which would cost thousands of dollars, this we really couldn't afford or justify and then we might still have problems with the slight ramp which is part of the lead into the shed.
One day I saw an advert for the EGO200 in a Caravan periodical which in turn led me to the Purpleline Web site, I watched the video showing how the mover operated and watched the installation video as well, the rest is now history because my wife said that it was a small price to pay to save our backs, joints, and frustrations etc, so we placed the order with Purpleline.
The promptness with which the order was processed was second to none, confirmation of order and payment was made by email on Saturday & Sunday (Direct Debit, B-Pay) and the EGO200 was delivered by Courier early the same Monday afternoon to my doorstep, complete with all fittings and the very comprehensive and detailed fitting instructions. I did all the fitting myself after raising the van onto axle stands, the amount of help needed by others was very minimal but I do admit that a workshop with a hoist or pit would have saved a considerable amount of installation time. My van now has a leasure battery fitted to power the EGO200, this we were going to do anyway so we have killed two birds with one stone. Does the EGO200 do the job? yes it most certainly does and we are very impressed with the ease of the controls and the ease with which the EGO manouvers the van, we have yet to try it out on site at a caravan park but when we go away next I am confident that the EGO200 will be capable of shifting the van onto a site and do away with a lot of the frustrations associated with proper van placement on hard to get at sites where the van has to be reversed in. Please Note: I use a jockey wheel with a pneumatic tyre and this further enhances the operation of the EGO200!
A bonus that we hadn't considered before we purchased the EGO is that it can also be used to maneuver the van to hitch up to the TUG, and is even further enhanced because of the "SOFT START FEATURE" in the electronics.
Congratulations to Purple Line for making such a magnificent and useful product available at such a reasonable price!
PS: During the preamble to fitting I decided to make some modifications to the van to facilitate better ground clearance for the EGO body which is now at a trim height of 230mm minimum, this was achieved by putting the axle under the springs which lifted the van 90mm higher than standard trim. Incidentally we had been considering this mod anyway because the Jayco in standard trim is far too low in a lot of situations particularly the top of our steep driveway, no more dragging of WDH! I believe this is also a problem with some other vans as well.
