Caravan & Motorhome maintenance during COVID-19

Everything is uncertain right now, but what we do know is that we won’t be heading out in our caravans or motorhomes any time soon. It’s such a shame but protecting yourself is more important! 


Whilst you’re protecting yourself, why not also protect your vehicle. Your vehicle will have to stay stored for a little while longer, but we have got some tips on how to make sure it stays fresh and maintained so that when you can head out in it, you’re ready to go! 


Have a look at our maintenance tips below! 


Check your tyres 


We don’t know how long this will all be going on for, but if your tyres are stood still for a long time it is best to check them and regularly as you would your car tyres. This means when you go to head out, there will be no nasty surprises! 


Spring Clean 


You might have already done this for winter storage, but since you have time to kill having a clean over the inside won’t hurt. Give the floors and any carpets a hoover and make sure the inside is as tidy as can be, that way when you can go back on the road you won’t have to waste time doing a big clean. 


Check your electrics 


Connect up all your electrics to test them and ensure that all your lights (including brake and indicator lights) are working as normal. This will indicate to you whether you need to replace any bulbs and gives you plenty of time to sort it, rather than delaying your caravanning plans even further! 


Get a cover 


This is one of the most important steps, and no we’re not being biased! You may think a cover is just for the wetter months, but that’s not true.  

In fact, our covers are just as effective in the summer as they are in the winter! Our covers have UV protection in the fabric, so throughout the summer, your paintwork is protected from fading and the harmful UV rays from the sun.  


Aside from the UV protection, it also offers great protection against animal waste, tree sap and all of the other great joys of nature which are no good for your caravan! 

Looking after your caravan now will mean when it does come to getting it back on the road, you won’t have to wait around for anything. You can just go! 


Don’t leave it to chance, it’s worth getting your storage cover now so that your vehicle is protected whilst it’s not being used.
