Clipping a gate post!
Im sure we’ve all seen this kind of damage on the side of a caravan. The aluminium siding is so thin it is extremely easy to cause this kind of damage.
The good news is this can be easily repaired in our workshop and no one will ever know that it had happened.
Falling awning rails
You seen the small round dents on caravan like in teh example opposite. Easily caused by an awning pole falling against the van when putting up the awning or taking it down again. It can also be caused by bikes being lent against the side of the van or a chair pushing back when fetching another beer.
If it gets unsightly then get in touch today and let us discuss with you how we can bring your caravan back to its former glory.
Leaking Locker Doors
The damage opposite was caused by the seal failing around the toilet door. The bottom timber had to be replaced as did part of the floor timbers as well as the wall board in the bathroom.
Regular servicing would have picked this up early and could have been prevented by overselling the toilet in the first instance to prevent any further ingress and then agreeing a plan with the engineer on a permanent solution at a time to suit the customer and the engineer.
You may have seen caravans with small crack above the windows tracking upwards towards the gutter rail strip as seen opposite.
Trying to glue the panel will result in it reopening and the fix failing however under certain circumstances we can plastic weld the panel and paint the area so it can’t be seen.
The best solution would be a new panel but the cost of that can be prohibitive and may make the repair uneconomical. We always work with the customer to ensure the repair matches the budget and explain the the potential problems that may occur in the future.
