Although it doesn’t feel like it, Spring is only a week away!

This means, the camping season is about to begin. Time to use your new caravan or motorhome bought at the NEC caravan & Motorhome shows throughout 2017 and 2018, potentially for the first time! 

To start the season off right and to make an impact, now is the perfect time for the annual spring clean!

Vacuum Caravan or Motorhome Spring Clean 2018

Start with cleaning the inside of your caravan or motorhome with vacuuming and dusting. Keep an eye out for damp or other damage that may have occurred during the winter months.

Time for a wash!

Next clean the outside, we recommend using Fenwick’s Caravan or Motorhome cleaner and a long brush – a pressure washer helps too!  Fenwicks Caravan / Motorhome Cleaner Concentrate will easily remove black streaks, green algae, road traffic film, diesel fumes, and over wintering grime, etc. It is suitable for cleaning plastics, aluminium, acrylic windows, GRP, ABS, fibreglass, decals, sealants and much more. Highly concentrated formula, guaranteed results.

The final steps!

Your caravan or motorhome may be looking great right now, but why not protect it with some polish or wax. Protect it against UV Rays, bird droppings and water marks. Polish and wax allows water to bead of the surface, taking the dust and dirt with it. We recommend using MER Ultimate Shine Polish. 

Tyre Gel for Caravan Motorhome 2018 Spring Clean

Check your tyres! – Make sure to give your caravan or motorhome tyres a thorough inspection, checking for cuts, bulges and cracking. Make sure to test the thread depth. A good way to protect your tyres from cracking is to use a Tyre Gel – a quick clean of the rubber will allow the gel to stick to the tyre and last longer. 

and finally! – Make sure the hitch of your caravan is secured firmly, clean and well greased , while doing this, also check the breakaway cable is in good condition.
