Trailers carry significant weight and endure long-term vibration with complex suspension set-ups. Couple this with the vast distances they cross, and it’s clear why skipping service intervals isn’t a wise idea.
Instead of running into trouble, stress and a caravan breakdown, engage with a professional caravan service as part of your journey plan. This can include simple trailer repairs or even regular maintenance checks. We invite you to have a read of what this entails below.

During the Service
Prevention and regular maintenance are key to keeping your trailer running smoothly. Servicing your trailer is part of that. This is an overview of what will occur during your service.
The three functional areas will be checked.
When it comes to your wheel and braking systems, your wheel bearings and the seals will be checked, repacked and replaced. Your brake systems will be checked and adjusted, as will your handbrake. All elements will also be cleaned.
Connectivity and setup function checks involve lubricating wind downs, roll-out awnings and drop-down legs and ensuring that they are in working condition. We also check your jockey wheels to ensure they remain in good repair.
Safety testing, the third functional area, checks all traffic lights, after which we replace any globes. We also ensure the total brake system functions safely.
When it comes to trailer repairs, it is crucial to ensure you are trusting your trailer with a reliable crew. We at Allways Caravans are fully licenced and accredited to take on insurance repair work for anything from full smash repair to cracked window replacements.
When it comes to the frequency of your services, that depends on the way in which you use them. If you use your trailer daily, service intervals of 5,000km are recommended. However, if your trailer has been resting in the garage, services should occur every six months – or before use after a long period of rest.
