Importance of maintaining your caravan before travelling to Connecticut

You need comfort and rest while travelling to prevent the accumulation of fatigue. Broken windows, broken A.C, bent curtain rails and even missing curtains affect the quality of life in the camp. If your caravan window stays open, you may have several sleepless nights due to cold or excessive heat. However, by ensuring that these things are constantly checked and that any broken parts are repaired before it gets worse, you prevent discomfort.

In addition to this, proper maintenance prevents constant break downs especially when in remote areas. If the caravan breaks down in a remote area, it not only leaves you stranded but it also exposes you to security threats. Some remote areas may be prone to bandits and roaming wild animals making it unsafe for lengthy stops.

Budget wise, it is more economical to maintain the caravan than to wait for it to break down. A problem that could have easily been fixed can lead to the development of other problems increasing the cost of repairing the whole caravan. For example, a faulty wheel may lead to an accident that will damage the body of the caravan necessitating a paint job and a body repair in addition to the wheel change.

It would be a shame to miss out a whole day of your trip due to a broken down caravan. While sometimes the inevitable happens and you cannot make it, it is up to you to minimise the chances of break down by practicing proper maintenance all year round.
