Regular caravan servicing is important

Just as having your car serviced regularly keeps it performing at its best – and prevents any small issues turning into big ones – regular servicing of caravans is vital to your ongoing, trouble-free enjoyment of your recreational vehicle.

Keep in mind that you’re towing a heavy load that needs to run smoothly so without regular and appropriate servicing you’re not only risking costly maintenance or repairs on your caravan and car, but also taking a massive risk with your and other road users’ safety.

Besides the safety issue, there’s a danger that your warranty could be voided if you don’t keep up a regular servicing program.

At Ace Caravan Repairs, we have an area within our workshop specifically devoted to caravan servicing, providing the optimal conditions to service your caravan to the highest standards.

As a matter of course, your caravan should be serviced before any long trip and at regular intervals. Every 10,000 kilometres is a good measure to schedule your caravan servicing.

If you’ve purchased a second-hand caravan, it’s best to book it in for a service before using it. Also, ask us about our comprehensive cleaning and detailing.
