Mobile Caravan Service
Mobile Caravan Service
If you are looking for mobile caravan service, Caravan Fix has got you covered. Each of our 6 locations have a mobile Service and Repair unit on the road.
If you don’t want to bring your van to us, we can come to you. Operated by one of our trained technicians, our mobile service units can do a number of small repairs and service your caravan. A number of small repairs and service can be done on site, whether at your home, caravan park or caravan storage site.
We can do some repairs with our mobile service units, including Awning replacements, hatch, window and door repairs, seal reports and re-seal jobs, as well as a number of diagnosis and reporting.
Our Technician can also supply you with a condition and safety report. With your caravan being such a big investment, it is always worth knowing what is going on inside and outside your van.
There are some limitations, such as machining brake drums and similar jobs requiring specialised tools. In cases where the mobile unit can’t do these repairs, we would provide a report for you and our workshop on the job requirements.
Our mobile technicians can also help you with pre purchase inspections. If you are about to spend a large amount of money on a used van, it often pays to have an expert check it out and let you know if there are any serious issues that could cost you more money before you even get to enjoy the new van.
You can rely on the Caravan Fix mobile caravan service. Call us today or make a booking online.
Please contact us if there is anything else you would like to know.

How often should I get my caravan or camper serviced?
As a good rule of thumb, Caravans should be serviced at LEAST once a year or every 10,000km - whichever comes first. They should also be serviced if they have been idle for more than 6 months.
Caravans, campers and other RV's are complicated machines with many moving parts. Caravan's come under similar stress as your car from the wear and tear of travelling. As more people take to the roads, the more critical it is for everyone’s safety that caravans are 100% travel ready.
There are very good reasons to service your caravan regularly:
- It will save you money in the long run by being preventative and avoiding the need for expensive repairs later;
- It will give you peace of mind that your next holiday will be free from an avoidable breakdown or something not working as expected for the whole trip;
- Your caravan is an important investment. A well-maintained caravan holds its value and reflects positively on your asset
- Most importantly, It will keep you, your family and other road users safe!
Caravan Fix will ensure that your brakes, bearings, axles, electricals, and mechanical components are not overly worn or damaged before you head out on the road.

How long will it take to service my van?
In most cases, service which requires no major part replacement is generally completed in a few hours and can be booked into one of our 6 service centres to minimize any downtime.
However, it’s important to understand that caravans and motorhomes are complex machines that are often full of unique parts! That means that it’s not always as simple to get parts for your standard automobile!
If we have to source parts that are difficult to find, we will notify you and we’ll do our best to give you an estimate of the timeframe for delivery of the part or parts.
Caravans manufactured overseas present an entire new level of parts challenges, and we sometimes choice to design and make parts ourselves if we cannot source them.
We ask for your patience when your caravan is with us and we fully commit to keeping you informed on progress every step of the way.
How much does it cost?
The cost of a regular maintenance service starts from $340 for a single-axle caravan and from $399 for a double-axle vehicle. We’ll check bearing, brakes, gas and electrical, as well as inspecting the coupling, chassis, windows, and doors and looking for any signs of damp.
Any items requiring attention will be brought to your attention with pricing for your approval to proceed with repairs.

How do I care for my van?
We strongly encourage our customers to undertake a preventative maintenance mindset. We'll show you everything you need to know about caring for your caravan or RV so you can greatly reduce the chances of a serious breakdown. From understanding how to wash your caravan to educating consumers on the need for Regular Servicing. We strongly recommend RVGard to protect the exterior and interior surfaces and materials in your caravan or RV.
Do you offer a minor service?
Yes. As well as our full service and repair options, Caravan Fix is also able to offer basic tyre, brake and bearing service. This can be an affordable way to ensure safety between major service appointments.
Note: Keep in mind a full service history could be beneficial as evidence of regular maintenance during Insurance or Manufacturer Warranty claims.
What mobile services do you offer for Caravans?
There are many services that can be easily, safely, and conveniently completed on your caravan, through our mobile service. These include: Standard caravan servicing, assessment of accident or hail damage, or the fitting of accessories, such as awnings, heaters, stability legs and battery power systems.
Please note there are some limitations to what can be done in the field. When speaking with our friendly customer service team, they will assist you to determine the best location to carry out your repairs to ensure our high level of quality and your satisfaction.
Where and when does the mobile service operate?
Our mobile service operates on weekdays and generally travels within a 25km radius of our locations but can go further as required and agreed to. There is a one-hour minimum labour charge for all call outs plus the fees for the services provided.
Why do you offer a mobile service?
Our mobile service was introduced in clear response to demand from our customers who simply wanted us to come to them, not vice versa! Often, units are in storage, or set up in a park and the effort to move them to us is simply too hard. Rather than risk seeing services not undertaken we felt we needed to respond to the need.
We acknowledge that many of our customers still want and need servicing and maintenance completed on their caravan, but for various reasons, may simply not be able to get it to us.
What services are not suitable for the mobile service?
Not all services can be offered via our mobile team! Water testing, damage repair, water incursion and hail damage are jobs that need to be undertaken inside our workshop. We also can not undertake scheduled repairs on public roadways due to safety concerns for our staff and customers.
We will determine over the phone if we can conduct the work via the mobile service. But there may be times that we may conclude that your caravan needs to be brought into our workshop.
Once again our friendly customer service team, they will assist you to determine the best location to carry out your repairs to ensure our high level of quality and your satisfaction.
