Caravan and Camper Shock Absorbers

Taking a caravan trip? This is perhaps the best way to connect with yourself with family and spend some time away from the bustle of city life.

However, when you are out exploring, it’s important to ensure that important caravan parts are up to scratch. This includes shock absorbers.

What These Are For

Generally, most caravans and campers come with shock absorbers pre-installed. Caravan shock absorbers are installed by most reputable caravan manufacturers on their new caravans and campers.

These absorbers dampen the shock, jarring and strain that comes from travelling somewhat rugged terrain. And that’s not all; they also keep it from damaging equipment inside your caravan.

Here’s a tip, line your draws and cupboards with neoprene. Even your cutlery handles get worn from rough roads unless you take precautions.

These kits generally stop functioning perfectly within 5 years. Check your caravan shock absorber kit if you’ve had your caravan for a while.

Finally, your shock absorber should be measured for 1/2 of the stroke and mounted in that position.
