National Caravan Service Directory

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I think it would be beneficial to us all to collate a National Caravan Service Directory. 

Whether it be a standard undercarriage service or some unplanned repairs when you are a long way from home it makes sense to at least have a short list

I am more than happy to collate and post a list but need your input

The more input received the better the list

For the sake of uniformity I suggest using the template below

over to you

regards Peter

What a great idea Peter, this can/could turn into a 'great tool' to assist us all.

Who can add to this list?

And for the sake of uniformity I would suggest following Peter's template.

Hi

Here's another:-

Victoria

Melbourne Trailers

1-3 Ashley Park Drive

Chelsea Heights 3196

03 8773 8773

 

Melbourne Trailers is the Australia and New Zealand agent for Dexter Axles.

The company is well known to, and does similar work to, Vehicle Components. It has all types of hardware componentry for trailers of all varieties.

We had a Dexter Sway Control fitted by VC just prior to setting off on a Byron Bay to Steep Point trip in August. The DSC was fine on sealed and smooth dirt but in certain corrugated and sandy conditions it acted up. Apparently some DSC units are over-sensitive and at VC's suggestion, MT was contacted. They were very helpful and as soon as we are back in Brissy the unit will be replaced.

However, while in Melbourne we took the van to MT for them to check over the brakes for wear. The brakes were inspected and we were wished a safe trip!! A very pleasant experience.
