Do you have a Spare Wheel in your Caravan

Legislation does not provide for spare wheels to be included with any new caravan purchased or when a used caravan goes through a roadworthy test.

Do you have a Spare Wheel in your Caravan?

TyreBrian and Marinda were returning home to Johannesburg from a great weekend in the TyreDrakensberg when disaster struck! Midway between Warden and Villiers, (50km either direction) on Sunday evening at around 4-30 pm, they picked up a flat wheel on their Jurgens Palma.

 “Flat wheel” is an understatement! When you are travelling at 90 – 100 kmph on a freeway, you only discover that you have a “Flat” when the caravan starts behaving funny behind you, or when a passing motorist starts to hoot and point! You actually end up with a totally destroyed tyre!

Can you imagine your consternation when you discover Tyrethis shredded tyre on your caravan, family in the car, and in the middle of nowhere!  It is 4-30 pm, Sunday evening, nearest town 50km away? Now what?


Talk to your nearest caravan dealer or tyre and wheel distributor NOW!

Make sure that you have a good spare wheel, reliable jack as well as wheel spanner in your caravan.
