Modern caravans are complicated machines. Developments over recent years have turned many of them into homes from home, which is great for holiday making.
However, these developments mean there is a lot to go wrong, and plenty of items which wear out. Unlike static homes, caravans are motor vehicles which have to pass road safety standards.
This and the home comforts can be very demanding to keep on top of. As experts in caravan repairs Gold Coast people come to, we take care of all these essential working parts.
Before you hit the road in your caravan, you’ve got to be sure it’s safe to do so. Caravans tend to be heavily used at certain times of the year, then left standing for a few months. It can be easy to overlook essential vehicle checks and repairs, and just head off into the distance.
The trouble is, that distance might not be very far, if your vehicle lets you down. RV users can find their holidays cut short by being pulled over for a safety infringement.
Safety inspections should be carried out regularly, especially if your caravan’s been standing for any length of time. This should be done by qualified professionals, rather than just giving your vehicle the once-over. It’s easy to forget how many miles caravans and other RVs clock up over time.
A safety inspection lets you know that you’ll make it all the way there and all the way back.
The most common repairs carried out are covered by, and to comply with, your warranty. Manufacturers have strict rules about this, of course, and it’s a bad idea to fall foul of them.
Similarly, logbook servicing must be done regularly and correctly, to keep your caravan roadworthy.
Other caravan repairs Gold Coast travellers need are more to do with the pleasure of using these vehicles. There are a lot of extras fitted to caravans these days, which is what makes them so enjoyable. Fixtures and fittings such as awnings, AC units, fridges and microwaves are almost taken for granted today when caravanning.
Finding out that one or more of these don’t work when you’re parked up is sure to spoil your holiday.
Other essential repairs include those for toilets and showers, not to mention water tanks. These kinds of jobs would be carried out by other trades in the home, but require specialist skills for caravans.
Important items like these need as much care and attention as your vehicle’s roadworthy components.
