Maintenance Tips

Alasdair Robb has become the main supplier of used, new old stock and remanufactured parts for our caravans, Alasdair has had suspension bushes, and adjustable shock absorbers re manufactured and has clear Moorlight roofs made when he has sufficient orders for a batch and is able to satisfy most needs from either new or second-hand stock.

The club has purchased the remaining Cheltenham factory stock of spares, this includes badges for 1970’s vans, available via the Secretary. These items are available at club rallies by prior arrangement.

The remaining stock of B&B chassis spares has transferred from Jonnie Longden to Peak trailers of Bidford upon Avon

A club member has the moulds for corner spouts, mudguards and drawbar fairings, these are not currently being produced, as needs can still be met by second-hand items but the moulds are in safe keeping ready for when they are required. Contact the Secretary for more details.

Auto jumbles are the most likely source of components and wheels from caravans of our era.

The internet and in particular E bay! For items still manufactured, such as the white plastic side window surround, you can look for the cheapest price, new old stock of items such as B& B hitch springs and gas mantles can also be located.

It is suggested that members buy items such as hitch springs, brake shoes, rear lights and door catches as and when they are available, so each van has a spares package with it, if you don’t need the item some other member will!
