Park Your Caravan Anywhere Using Remote Control

Article by Steve Smith, Caravans Plus

Remote Controlled Caravan Movers have now become quite popular. There are a few brands to choose from and we have decided to list a couple of brands that we feel give the best features. They are sold in a kit with everything you need to install them yourself. They will fit almost all Australian Caravans.

With a Remote Controlled Caravan Mover you will be able to:

1) Hitch up your Caravan without the helpful hand signals from your partner.

2) Back your Caravan through tight gateways or around corners you can't get to with the car attached.

3) Turn your Caravan door to face the view at any campsite.

The Remote Controlled Caravan Mover works by using two small but powerful 12 Volt motors. They push against a tyre on each side of your Caravan. You use the remote control to drive your Caravan forward or backwards and turn.

Purple Line, Camec and Reich are the brands sold by Caravans Plus and the videos show features that you need to consider, depending on your requirements. You should look at:

  • How much does your caravan weight?
  • How much slope you have?
  • How many axles does your caravan have?
  • Do you need auto-engage?
  • What warranty is offered?
  • What is the price?
  • Are spare parts available?
  • Will it fit my caravan?

    The mover units are sold in sets with 2 motors. This will work on single and double axle caravans, however it is recommended that you buy two sets (four motors) for the heavier twin axle caravan, as manoeuvrability is reduced when using only two motors unless the surface is gravel . The two sets will work much better than one.

    On a twin axle caravan please ensure that you check that there is enough space between a sunken door and the wheel to fit a motor unit in (approx 30cm). If unsure just call Purple Line and they will be able to assist.

    Customer Testimonials

    Hi Purple Line. This is the best investment I have made. I am now able to store our caravan in our front yard right along the side the house and we still have uninterrupted view from our bedroom window. We could not do that without our remote control caravan mover, It is very easy to maneuver and saves me money from storage. And of course the convenience of packing and getting away so much quicker and easier. Love it. Kind regards Steve.
