Motor Mover On B & B Trailer?


Recommended Posts

Hi I am finding it difficult to manoeuvre my caravan for parking and hitching to and from festivals and wondered if anybody had been able to fit a motor mover to an older caravan with a b & b trailer chassis?

Thanks

I always think these people look like they should know what they are doing. Give them a call perhaps. .....

 

Midland Motor Movers

 

From their web site :

 

Specialised in None Standard Chassis Fitments

If you have a caravan which has a none standard chassis which you struggle to find a suitable caravan mover for we are able to help. Get in touch for a no pressure chat on what movers and fitting options are available.

 

 

Not sure about their English/grammar though. ..... B)

Thanks I will give them a call in the morning. Wasn't sure about the ones on the jockey wheel as I heard they are not so good on grass. Also is the jockey wheel changed permanently or just when you want to use it?

Movers only clamp onto the chassis so should not be a problem .

In my experience they are not good on any surface!

http://www. powrwheel. com/caravan-movers/bespoke-fitting. html covers this situation. .. it will likely cost a little extra for modified fixing bracketry (if needed).

 

Getting a proper caravan mover was the best thing I did (albeit an expensive purchase).
