Caravan Movers from Tilshead Caravans

 A caravan mover takes all of the difficulty or worry out of moving your caravan. Modern movers are simple to use, very effective and once you have one you will soon wonder why you didn't do it earlier!

The most popular caravan movers are fitted to the chassis of your caravan and consist of motors which turn rollers as instructed by you, using the handheld remote control. These rollers act on your existing caravan tyres in order to move your caravan. A quality caravan mover, which should be chosen to suit your caravan, will move your caravan up inclines as steep as 1:4, down steep inclines slowly and safely and can move your caravan in a smooth manner, making it easy to position your caravan exactly where you want it, whether this be to connect to your towcar or park the caravan in a location with tight or complicated access.

There are a number of manufacturers of caravan movers who all offer slightly different products in terms of quality, warranty, backup services and of course price. Some of these include:-

Some mover models require a manual actuation of the rollers onto the tyres, using a handle, before you can use the mover, whilst fully automatic models have an additional electric motor to undertake this task for you. Most manual actuation movers will include a cross-bar (PowrTouch call theirs the PowrBar) so that you can move rollers on both wheels from just one side of the caravan - useful if you are parked tight to a wall or boundary.

All quality movers will have a soft-start feature which means the mover smoothly starts to move, preventing jerkiness and some movers will even offer a variable speed control, controlled from the handset, so you can set the speed the caravan moves at!

 

Which mover manufacturer do we recommend?

There are few poor mover products on the market and so we can supply and fit most versions if required. However, we have for many years recommended the market leader, PowrTouch. The main reasons are:

  • Five year no-quibble warranty

  • Their nationwide network of engineers that means if you have a problem they can come to you to fix it.

  • Quality products

  • Sensible pricing

  • Excellent customer service

  • Fantastic feedback from our customers over the years
