Judging by the rain that is sweeping up the street outside in bouncing sheets and the fact that I had to do the 100-metre dash from the car this morning, I think it is safe to say that the first hint of winter is in the air.
While Winter is no reason for you to put away your caravan, in fact it can be a great time to take advantage of the quieter resorts and tourist attractions and we know a few people who love to spend Christmas out and about, we know that many of our customers wave good-bye to us at the end of Summer until the spring. If you do put the ‘van away for the Winter then you really must make sure you close it up for the cold weather.
Winter proofing your caravan isn’t that difficult but you do need to make sure you do it right. For the last few years we have been quite lucky with the cold seasons and it’s been quite mild. However even a short cold snap can do a lot of damage and there are other considerations as well.
For the next couple of articles we will be looking at the winter ritual of putting away the van until spring.
OK, that is a brief checklist. As always please read your handbook for the manufacturers recommendations and please get in touch if you need advice.
In the next article we will look at the outside of the caravan.
