About Us

Who We Are

Gecko Offroad was established in 2010 by Keith and Alison Teubes. As avid campers with over 30 years of camping experience, they saw a need for a hard-core caravan that was luxurious, fast and simple to set up.

How the Journey began :

After three years of research and development, the Gecko Xtreme was created. It is the perfect multi-terrain caravan that encompasses quality, simplicity and luxury. The Gecko was put to the test, during its maiden run, on an 8000km camping expedition through Botswana and Namibia. This trip saw the Gecko go up to Epupa Falls, down the Skeleton Coast via Palmwag and to the Fish River Canyon via Sesriem.

Once home, the team made a few tweaks and production began. We are proud to say that we now have over 165 Gecko’s on the road around the country. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our Gecko owners exploring this beautiful continent with their caravans.

What our clients say

“My experience the past 2 years with my Gecko. Camping in the KNP, Kgalagadi, Ratho, Makuya, Namibia and Moremi, Khwai, Savuti in Botswana. Over some of the worst thick sand, gravel, dust, corrugated, pothole, rocky roads you can imagine. Never had a breakdown or dust or water leak with my Gecko. Once camping you realise that the Gecko was built by a man that has done plenty of camping before. It is planned very well with no wasted space and no hassles. Easy to pitch up with a comfortable outside kitchen, washup and fridge. Inside the comfort of a shower, toilet, basin and kingsize bed”

“It is a proper off road caravan ,extremely strong built, very well thought through design and construction that others wish they can have. I think I am lucky to have one of the nicest looking off road caravans on the road. It is extremely practical and the space is very cleverly utilised. When you tow this caravan then you will soon realise that it is a solid caravan with a decent weight and your car knows that there is something substantial behind it. It tows extremely stable and off road it is just a pleasure. It absolutely follows your car and will go where your tow vehicle can go. Normally with another make you will get into the van after doing a bit of off roading and you will find items out of place when you open the door or the holds. You will expect dust, but not with this caravan. It stays clean and virtually dust free inside and that says a lot.

I have the trust in this caravan to take it anywhere and I know it will be with us in one piece every step of the way. What is really amazing is being part of the Gecko family and that starts with Keith, Alison and the team. These people are extremely supportive and very proud of their product. It is an absolute pleasure dealing with them and I didn’t even buy my van from them. Unfortunately I am still working full time so my trips are still very much limited to weekend breakaways and I envy my fellow Gecko owners who are taking theirs up into Africa and to all the places I still want to visit. My time will come. My wife, Adelien is used to glamping with our WJ Motorhome but for a solid year now we haven’t used the motorhome because she adores her Gecko. Where it was always a battle to get her to go camping and it is now as easy as saying we are camping this weekend.To me it is a privilege to be a very proud Gecko owner and to be associated with this very premium brand. GO GECKO!!!”

“Keith ons wil net vir jou en jou span baie dankie sê vir die voorreg het om die mooi van soveel plekke te kan sien. Dankie vir ‘n puik produk. Ons het net onder 70000 km gery en baie keer op baie slegte paaie. Baie dankie aan al die personeel. Ek dink net ons besef nie altyd hoeveel tyd en harde werk word spandeer om een karavaan te bou nie. Groete en baie sterkte.”

“This is the best offroad caravan around. Big double bed, shower, basin & toilet inside. Great outside living area with fridge/freezer, gas stove, hot water and cupboard for groceries etc. Die woonwa sleep soos ‘n droom met geen “swing”. Slaan binne minute op.  Groot buite laai vir pakplek van kamp toerusting. Ons het verskeie offroad woonwaens gehad, en daar is geen vergelyking nie. Puik naverkope diens van die vervaardigers.Ons beveel die Geco met n oop gemoed aan.”

“I don’t want any other caravan! Love the inside bathroom, love the big bed, love the drawers inside, love the outside kitchen, love the good quality cutlery and crockery, love how easy it is being towed. I have singlehandedly hooked it and towed it myself! So easy. Bottomline – I love it!”

Hester Ungerer

“Keith and Team, I am home in Hankey safe and sound. Did spend Sunday figuring out the ins and outs of the caravan – bit like a kid with a new toy! Thank you for everything, my whole experience dealing with the Gecko team was an easy and pleasurable one and every telephone conversation was very friendly, informative and never did I get the feeling that time was short when you were answering questions. I will recommend your product and business to anyone. Once again, thank you.”
