Great info just to keep everything tip top.

My Van is ready all year round because we camp in winter as well.  But I usually go through those points you mentioned before every long trip during December.

One can never be to sure that all works fine.

Jip my wa staan ook reg weer vir die komende naweek by Parys.  Gewas, gepolish, water tenk vol, toilet geprep, battery gelaai, beddegoed gewas en oorgetrek, wiele gepomp en hoekstutte gelub.

Moet net kos en klere inpak. Dan draai die wiele

Lance you are really hard-up for camping if you are prepping the van two weeks before the time.  And I though I had it bad.

Leon, yip, I started two weekends ago as well sorting out the caravan. The wheels rolled last year March. Been a bit hectic. Seems to me that John is well ahead of us regarding prep. 

It is good to see how well the forum members look after their tow vehicles, caravan/camping trailer/motor home/tent!!!! When I walk around in some parks, I cannot believe the condition of some of the caravans!

What you are mentioning now is a bit of a concern to me.  For example the guy stops park the van and when he turns down the corner steadies you can tell by the sound that he either maintains the caravan or not.

Its like when you want to fine out in what condition is a second hand car. Just have a look at the carpet in the boot of that car it will tell you a lot.

If the corner steadies are not maintained how much is................? ? ?
