I want to fit an accessory
Coachman Caravans are aware of the well-known accessories available for fitment onto our products, and we try to cater for as many products as possible. However, due to the number of units available we do not test and approve products, and therefore, are not able to comment on whether the device is suitable for use on our products. We suggest that your question be directed to either the installer or manufacturer of the after-market accessory.
How long do parts take to arrive?
Coachman Caravans quote a maximum of 6 weeks for a spare part to be sent to your dealer, and we are constantly trying to improve this lead time.
The actual lead time depends on a number of factors: The manufacturer of the part, the location of the part and whether we hold any stock of the part. A current season part, in stock will be delivered to your dealer in a matter of weeks, whereas a specially ordered 1-off part may take slightly longer.
Please be aware that dealers may not order the part against your specific chassis number, so if you are contacting us with a request for a lead time, please obtain the order number from your dealer, and quote this number when contacting us.
Note - We are not able to send parts to anyone other than the Coachman Dealer or authorised repairer.
Tyres and Towing
How do I check if my caravan stability issues are related to my tow car?
The most common issue related instability of a caravan while being towed is an incorrect nose weight for the outfit or the incorrect position of the vehicle towball.
On the assumption the vehicle nose weight is correct for the outfit, the vehicle towball height should be checked. The correct height of your vehicle towball is 350mm – 420mm vertical height from the ground, with the vehicle loaded, but without the caravan attached.
