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.

Call Newcastle Caravan Repairs today to discuss your needs.

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.
Vantec-NextGen

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.

A. Over time, your caravan suspension and axles will require servicing. You can expect our team to check your bearings, leaf springs, slipper leaf springs and tandem axles, as well as ensuring your pins and bushes have not worn to the extent that your springs could break.

We can give your caravan a full comprehensive service, offering a report on all work completed and scheduled maintenance that will be required in future. This will give you peace of mind and the ability to budget for this routine servicing, saving you time, money and hassle in the long term.

A. The Newcastle Caravan repairs team will inspect your tyres, wheels, lights, vents, seals and even your awnings. We will ensure all signs of wear and tear are checked and corrected with fixtures that stand the test of time. This includes replacement of bushes, pins, bearings and springs. Keeping up to date with annual servicing is important for the working condition of your vehicle, especially if you are a keen traveller and using your caravan frequently.
A. At the very least your caravan should be serviced once a year, or at least every 10,000kms. It is also a good idea to get it inspected prior to going away on holiday to make sure everything is in working order.
A.
  1. Ask to see proof of the service history and the work that has been carried out on the caravan in the past.
  2. Find out how it has been stored. Caravans that are not stored undercover are at the mercy of the weather elements.
  3. Inspect the exterior for hail damage, dents, corrosion.
  4. Examine the inside for watermarks, which may indicate leaks. Soft spots on the floor may also be telling of a previous leak, which could lead to rotting timber.
  5. Check the window seals.
