Churchill Scholarship Recipient Takes The ‘Chore’ Out Of Boating
Born out of his own passion for caravanning and 29 years in the design & manufacturing field, Rob Shawyer and his family have created an invention to make your caravanning and boating experience Real-Ezy! Based in Northern NSW, Real-Ezy Folding Boat Trailers provide a range of folding boat trailers, Kayak trailers and accessories to suit your needs. These trailers have been put through extensive on and offroad trials, which are not normally asked of this sort of trailer.
Rob started out at the Australian National University in the Research School of Biological Sciences, working on devices for experimental research. Because of the very high standard of his workmanship, Rob received a “Churchill Scholarship” to go to Oxford University, England, to further develop his skills in engineering.
After returning home, Rob continued to work at the Research School of Biological Sciences until moving to the North Coast of NSW with his family in 1984 to start up his own Manufacturing business. The continuing growth and renewed interest in caravanning Australia wide, led to the Real-Ezy Folding Boat Trailer being conceived. Rob is always looking at ways to further develop the trailers, and back in 2015 we teamed up with Steve Perrie from All Metal Fabrications in Coffs Harbour. Between the two they have made a few modifications, and also put out two new models in Stainless Steel and also Aluminium.
Their customers have shared many glowing testimonials like: “I use my Hobie Adventure Island kayak a lot and quickly grew sick and tired of wasting time and breaking my back car-topping the thing, so naturally I turned to Real Ezy Rob (who has built more than a few trailers for these yaks) to customize a Barcoo folding trailer for me to transport it. This has made my life so much easier setting and packing up from kayak fishing trips, not to mention saving me a whole lot of time as well. It’s taken a lot of the ‘chore’ out of ‘fishing trip’ and is worth its (relatively light) weight in gold!” – Josh Holmes, Editor of Modern kayak Fishing.com and creator of the Yakass Kayak Fishing Show.
They love catching up with everyone too! Real-Ezy Trailers will be exhibiting at the Gold Coast Caravan and Camping Expo on the 28th – 30th July 2017. It also gives potential buyers a chance to go over the foldaway trailers and talk to them about the different ways trailers can be set up on their Caravan or Camper, and see a demo of the trailers.
