Caravan Road Lights etc.

Road lights can be some of the first items on a caravan’s exterior that get damaged. The rear ones are usually the most easily broken and depending on the type used, can be expensive to replace. Most caravans road lights are still available stretching back 15 years plus but again it’s very important to check that you can find a replacement unit.

Just as the road lights such items such as BBQ points and as pictured here, exterior mains sockets, these fittings can see the plastic flaps get broken. So a replacement may be better bet which are readily available from most caravan accessory shops.

Important Note

When you buy a used touring caravan it is absolutely vital that you check, or if you are not technically competent yourself have checked, the main safety features before you use the caravan. The bearings must be in good condition and be well greased, the tyres must be in good condition and the brakes working properly. Make sure that gas appliances are fully serviced and get a carbon monoxide alarm.

If the visible condition of the caravan indicates that it may not have been well maintained this may be a warning sign that more vital safety features have also not been properly maintained. Build the cost of servicing vital safety features into your budget and have them serviced before you use the caravan.

Consider buying Caravan Insurance

Before you tow your caravan ensure that you have a stabiliser properly fitted to the correct type of hitch. Familiarise yourself with the correct loading method and load your caravan correctly for towing.
