Our latest caravan safety campaign looks to help keep you and your ‘van free from harm!
Owning a caravan can be a fantastic way of forgetting your cares and getting away from it all! But it’s also an adventure that comes with a great deal of responsibility. From safe towing to keeping it secure from theft, there’s a lot to consider in between. That’s why, at The Insurance Emporium, we’re launching our Careful Caravanning campaign! We hope to help you learn more about caravan safety, as well as giving you 4 weeks’ free* Caravan Insurance with the promo code VAN19!
In order to stay safe on your caravan adventures, there are a number of things you might want to check before setting off. Here’s our guide to some of the most important!
Making sure the tyres on your ‘van are at the correct pressure might be a sensible thing to do. Underinflated tyres could be more at risk of bursting if you hit something unexpected like a pothole.
Your caravan should be fitted with a fire extinguisher – it could be wise to check that’s the case, and that it’s in order. Have a look at the date of manufacture on the bottom, if it’s older than five years, you might want to think about replacing it.
Just as your car needs servicing annually, so does your caravan! This is to make sure the running gear, brakes and lights are working properly, as well as internal components such as water, gas, electricity and heating.
It’s a good idea to check your water containers, pipes and equipment have been properly drained and cleaned – the last thing you want is stale, dirty water getting in the way of your caravan holiday! Check the filters too, as they might need replacing.
All in the planning
Give yourself enough time to do your research on your destination and have your sat nav or a road map at the ready! It could also pay to look at the best way to avoid heavy traffic. Towing your ‘van might be easier when the traffic’s steady rather than if you have to start and stop the whole journey!
