We've got ourselves a 2001 Rialto 535 530-5 today.  Looking forward to getting away in it in a couple of weeks time.

Just a little question.  Does anyone have a handbook which gives the tyre pressure figures?

We have an Avondale expert on CT - his name is Gordon and he is part of the Admin - but he knows his onions (and Avondales).

SNAP -   Well not quite.   Mine is a 2001 480/2

 

 

PS - Your tyres should be 165xR13-94N and they should be at 65psi

Hi Craig,

It is quite a large file but I have also sent a pdf copy of the 2001 Avondale Handbook to your registered email address.

Enjoy your new acquisition  :D

All the best,

Gordon.

Well we've had our first weekend away, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time.  We stayed at the Carsington Caravan Club site, which isn't far from home, but ideal for a tester weekend.

Well done - and a lovely van.   Certainly not looking like your average sixteen year old. :excl:

Going away again this weekend, but just the Peak District this time, and then we're off somewhere the weekend after too.  At this rate I'll need new tyres!

You needn't worry about wearing out your caravan tyres. I've just replaced mine after seven years and around 17000 miles. As you can see, the tread is hardly worn. And also there's no cracking in the treads which is where old caravan tyres begin to show their age.

Mine are 5 years old, so I'll probably change them at the end of next year.

But it won't be down to wear.
