Keeping your VW Campervan in Top Condition

Here’s a scenario to think about… It’s time for your holiday. You’ve worked hard all year for a few weeks of freedom on the open road. The camper is packed and you’re ready to go and a few miles in BANG, a breakdown. It’s only natural that breakdowns will occur, it comes with the territory of life on the road, so whether you’re a full-time vanner or a weekender, it’s just part of the adventure.

Whilst you can’t avoid breakdowns, there are some simple and basic tips, tricks and safety checks you can adopt to make life on the road a lot less stressful and hassle-free. Better yet, you don’t need to be a full-time mechanic to complete them.

Is your VW Campervan Ready for the Road?

Campervans are designed to chomp up the miles over the course of their lifetime. Their purpose is to take you serene places and adventurous hotspots in comfort and style. Whether you head out in your campervan once or twice a year, or your camper is an extension of you as you’re in it that much – it is vitally important you keep on top of the maintenance and safety of your van.

Our first and probably most obvious tip for keeping your vehicle well maintained is to make sure it is regularly serviced. Depending on the age of your camper, we would recommend at least two services a year. One with its annual MOT and one around 6 months later. On top of that, we would advise a mechanical check every 2 months or so.

The checks listed above are tailored for mechanical minds and garages, however, there are some basic checks you can keep on top of such as…

Tyres

An absolute must is to check your tyre’s treads and pressure before every journey. If you’ve been travelling up and down the country for months on end, you’re bound to have worn rubbers. Check your tyres to make you’re within the legal limit, look out for nails, cuts or bulges as well as checking your tyre pressure.

Engine Oil

Your engine’s oil levels are another important check before any big journey. If you think you’re topping your oil up frequently, you might want to take your campervan to a garage and have them take a look.

Engine Coolant

Make sure you stay on top of the temperature of your engine. Your engine’s coolant should be somewhere between the minimum and maximum levels.

Lights

Look out for blown bulbs and cracks or dirt on the lenses (and don’t forget the fog lights!). Your dashboard is full of warning lights alerting you to this, however, it’s still good practice to manually check them over.

Wipers and Windscreen Wash

Over time you’ll notice your wipes might start to smear dirt or water rather than get rid of it. If this is the case, it’s probably time to replace them. In addition to your wipers, you want to make sure you stay on top of your washer fluid. If you’ve got the room, you should pop an extra bottle of screen wash in your van just in case. The last thing you need is to run out on a long journey.

More Camping and Campervanning Tips from Denby Campervans

Despite your best efforts and no matter how many checks you do, all vehicles are susceptible to an error or breakdown. But so long as you’re prepared and have reliable breakdown cover, help is never too far away. So, don’t let this put you off.

Campervanning is a truly rewarding experience and there are so many positives to packing a campervan and hitting the open road. We’ve been providing VW campervans for many, many years. And we’ve seen our campers take our customers on the adventures of their lifetime.
