Anyone who has ever experienced the delights of motorhome ownership will agree that having your beloved vehicle out of action for any period of time is an inconvenience and a disappointment. You want to be on the open road, experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of some exotic location, basking in the sun by day and settling down in your own motorised accommodation by night. Instead, you’re stuck in a garage, waiting for the diagnosis of a fault on your vehicle or waiting for vital parts to be delivered. Fortunately, there are many competent and helpful garages who can help when your motorhome experiences a breakdown. A lot of motorhomes are based on vehicles made by popular manufacturers like Ford, Citroen and Volkswagen. If you have an issue with your engine, transmission, of electrical systems, a main dealer is sure to have all the tools and diagnostic equipment to get you up and running again. Mechanical parts for motorhomes made by any of the common manufacturers should be easy to come by.
However, finding the parts you need for the upkeep of the habitation section of your motorhome can be another story entirely. The independent companies who produce camper conversions on chassis from other manufacturers are much smaller than the giants of the automobile industry mentioned above. And since motorhomes make up a very small proportion of all the vehicles on the road, the specialist parts which are made just for this application are naturally going to prove more hard to come by than tyres and windscreen wipers. But help is at hand. The Caravan Centre of Torfaen are the UK’s largest breaker of caravans and motorhomes. We have a 10,000 sq ft showroom full of quality used parts for these vehicles, with new stock arriving daily. If you are searching for a rare or obsolete part for your motorhome, we may be able to help. We often buy end of line stock when manufacturers update their catalogues, and sometimes we are the only suppliers in the country left with particular discontinued parts. If no new parts are available, we have a vast stock of used parts which have been meticulously inspected and tested, and come with a three month no quibble warranty. And if the needed parts still don’t come to light, just tell our friendly and helpful staff just what it is you need for your motorhome. Between them they have over a century of experience, and one of them is sure to be able to find an acceptable alternative for you.
