Preparing your campervan for your summer holiday


It’s really important that your campervan is in top tip condition for your summer holiday.  So to avoid costly roadside charges and ruining your holiday, Moore4Motors have put together our 5 top tips to help with preparing your van this summer.

Is it driveable?

There are lots of things you can do yourself to prepare your van for the road, but if you want to save yourself the hassle and be safe in the knowledge that it’s roadworthy, then we can help.  As well as giving it a service, we can also inspect your tyres to make sure they’re not damaged.   Get in touch if you’d like us to ease the strain a little.

Nice and clean

Your van could probably do with a good old clean inside and out.  If your van has been standing unused over the winter, then it may be a bit musty and have some mildew growth, especially on the awnings.  So give everything a good scrub and get it looking fabulous and smelling fresh.  Make sure that there are no signs of leaks and check all of the door and window seals.


Make sure that your cooking appliances and heating are in good working order and check that they are safe to use.  You don’t want to accidents half way through your road trip!


Check the locks are working properly and make sure they are lubricated and ensure that your van insurance, MOT and breakdown cover are up to date.

Bits and pieces

Make sure you stock up on those essential items that you’ll need for your road trip like the kettle that stopped working the last time you used it or those missing awning accessories.  Moore4Motors stock a wide range of campervan and motorhome accessories, check out our website or call us on 012562 710533 for more information.
