    Very useful. I am new to caravanning and this is just the kind of info I need. Especially naming the grease that is needed for each job.

    Hi reading your item on caravan tyres. Both myself and my friend have had problems with the maxmiler tyres fitted to our coachman caravans, I have a pastiche 460/2 2009, and my friend has a v.i.p 460/2 2009, we have the same size tyres fitted by coachman. Both sets of tyres developed cracks in the sidewalls of the tyres after 3 years use. Evidently this is common in tyres that have high pressures. So I ask the question, why fit this type of tyre to caravans, if not suitable.

    Hi David,

    glad you found the article useful, and you’re absolutely right about maintenance of this type being as much a matter of safety as presevation.

    We think most caravanners are pretty “hands on” so it’s good to know how to do little jobs like this yourself to keep the ‘van in great condition, and working safely.

    I find this very useful. Thank you. You are not told about these things on purchase, and these little things are probably better done yourself so you know they have been done. Plus it’s a safety thing, like checking tyres etc.
