Get Your Caravan Summer Ready!

With the temperatures rising and blue skies becoming less unfamiliar, warm spring and summer days are not too far away. If you own a caravan, you’re probably already starting to plan this year’s adventures. If your caravan has been in winter storage or spent the winter on your driveway, it’s time to make sure it’s ready for whatever you have planned.

As well as ensuring that your caravan is clean, safe, and comfortable for your summer trips, you also need to ensure that it’s secure. With caravan theft on the rise, it’s essential to consider how to reduce the risk of it being stolen.

Here are some essential steps to ensure your caravan is as ready for the road as you are:

Maintenance Checks

Before you hit the road, you should thoroughly inspect your caravan. Check the tyres for wear and tear, ensuring they have sufficient tread depth for safe driving and are correctly inflated. Test all the lights, including indicators, brakes, and reversing lights. Don’t forget to inspect the brakes, hitch, and wheel bearings for any signs of corrosion or damage. It can also be advisable to service your caravan’s gas and electrical systems to reduce the risk of issues developing during your trip. 

Clean and Organise

After being shut up for the winter, your caravan will need a thorough airing and spring cleaning before you travel. Give the interior a deep clean, including upholstery, carpets, and kitchen appliances. Declutter the storage spaces if necessary and pack essential items efficiently to maximise space. Check for any signs of mould or dampness and address them quickly. Open the doors and windows on dry, warm days to allow air circulation. It’s also a good time to add any personal or decorative items to make your caravan feel more homely and inviting.

Safety Equipment

Don’t forget to check that you have a fully stocked first aid kit, fire extinguisher, and carbon monoxide detector onboard for emergencies. All of your safety devices should be in good working condition and easy to access. 

Consider Security

Caravan theft is a persistent problem in the UK and can happen in storage, on your driveway, and even on-site. A robust, reliable caravan alarm and tracking system can deter potential intruders and alert you to suspicious activity. Our Thatcham-approved caravan tracking systems have advanced features that quickly identify any attempted access and notify you accordingly.  

Reliable caravan tracking systems like the Pro 3 tracking system and the Sentinel S7 caravan tracking and caravan alarm combined system can provide peace of mind and enhanced security. GPS tracking devices allow you to monitor the location of your caravan in real-time, providing valuable information in the case of theft and increasing the chances of it being retrieved.
