Does your European caravan appear to sit very low down, close to the road with very little road clearance?
Over time the rubber suspension insets in the axle have become squashed and no longer have any movement. Which will have a detrimental affect on the whole caravan interior and outer structure as it is submitted to the impact forces of the road.
See video below
The effects of this problem
When the wheels hit potholes and indentations in the road the suspension no longer absorbs the impact very well, those forces are transmitted through the structure and fabric of the caravan interior.
If you carry on towing your caravan regardless you will almost certainly cause more damage, and you will be surprised as to what happens. The bulkheads and cupboards will become unattached from the walls, the floor to ceiling bulkheads will start pushing through the roof and that causes water ingress. We have even seen the chassis rails crack braking everything inside.
At Vantage RV we can rebuild the axle on the vehicle, no need to remove the axle and send it away to be rebuilt. However we can go one step further and fit additional springs to the axle.
We can do more than just rebuild the axle we can add springs to your suspension so that the caravan will ride a little higher, and the springs will absorb the road shock, no longer relying on just the axle rubbers to do all the work, now the springs will assist in protecting your caravan from our rough NZ roads
