Caravans are constantly exposed to the harsh Australian weather and road conditions, so require a little extra TLC.

Regular maintenance means your van is always ready for spontaneous holidays and safer on the roads.

We inspect for water leaks and minor damage that may overtime may develop into expensive issues. We work on all brands and models of caravans.

How to store your caravan if you won’t be using it for awhile:>


Hot Water Anode

The anode in your hot water system is a sacrificial rod which is designed to corrode over time, (instead of your hot water system tank). The anode should be replaced every 12 months (depending on use).


Tyre Pressure

Just like your car, having the correct tyre pressure is important to avoid blowouts and extend the life of your tyres. We recommend checking your tyres pressure at least 24 hours prior to heading off on holiday.



Nano Ceramic Quartz Surface Coating.
Surfaces treated with Vantec NextGen Exterior will be sealed to prevent UV rays, road grime and salt air from penetrating the surface and maintain showroom finish.


Safety Chain

Before you tow your caravan anywhere, don’t forget to check the safety chain. It should easily reach the towbar chain hook and look out for signs of corrosion or cracks where it attaches. Ensure your D-shackles are rated to the weight of your caravan.
