Why do I need to chock my van?

We know you have a handbrake so why should you chock your van? Recently I was talking a customer about this exact topic. I was being questioned by them when another customer interjected. His experience was: His caravan was parked out the front of his house on a slight incline. A passer by thought it could be funny to release the handbrake and see what happens. His van rolled forward and was only stopped by a car parked infront. This … Continue reading “Why do I need to chock my van?”

Those of you with a dual axle van have all had this issue. It is among the most common dual axle caravan issues. The wheels are too close together.

Our jack plate is made of the same quality UV resistant material that all our products are known for. The top contains open groves that add strength to the pad but also enable you to add water or talc to stop ants walking up … Continue reading “What if you have a jack instead of a jockey wheel?”

The big discussion regarding camping mats!

Everyone who camps would agree that a camping mat is an essential camping accessory. There are so many out there on the market and I know from experience what has worked and what does not. I had brought the rubber mesh one that allows water to run through. I found that it was slippery when wet, tears easily, and was very bulky. The major issue was that the dirt below came straight up through the mat as the weave was … Continue reading “The big discussion regarding camping mats!”
