    Default Caravan movers

    Good day all, thinking about "motorizing" my van. Have briefly looked at the Ewicks product. Can anyone share their experiences with this product (quite expensive) , or suggest alternatives? Thanks

    Personally I think they are a waste of money for something you may use only occasionally. Unless you have a tight corner at home to park I don't see the need. Most parks can be reversed into and with some practice you can put you van on a tickey.

    I would not trust them with my van on any seriously sloping sites. Lose them on a speed bump and you're in for some cash !!!
    There is no task too simple for some people to complicate !

    A friend that tows a Tourer SP has the movers that looks like a small Caterpillar tractor. He camps nearly every month and he has them for about 2 years. He says the best investment ever.

    I dont know too much about the Ewiks mover, but I bought my Jurgens Exclusive caravan with Powrtouch Evolution caravan movers and boy what a pleasure. Get to the stand, unhitch the van, press a few buttons and voilą the van is properly parked.

    It is expensive but in my opinion a worthwhile investment.

    Best investment you can make. I have the Ewiks fitted to my Classique and it works 100%. It is more noisy than the PowrTouch but it cost a lot less. Unfortunately not a remote system.

    I installed the Reich movers on my Tourer SP
    ,this is German perfection at its best,supplied by Movers SA Johan and installed by high quality worker Hannes at Camp Monkey Nelspruit.Best investment ever.they made special brackets to install motors separately as to not interfere with clearance hight.perfect job well done guys.

    Fitted a set on Ewicks to our Xplorer, it's a heavy van and the slope on our driveway was to steep to manover the van (paved) Mover made this a a simple job. Best investment on an van of that weight. They are also Hugh up behind the wheel.

    Looking up and studying what is available on the internet I see that the Purple Line Limited caravan movers (Enduro model) are ranked as being up there with the best. Anyone know this product?

    I would like to ask as to what battery you use to power the movers? Deep cycle or Hi-cycle? Also amp hour capacity?

    We use a Lowrance mover available from Lowrance in Durban - wouldn't be without it. You may not use it all that often but when you need it, its a lifesaver.

    Not sure about those kind that are fitted in the wheel arches and bear onto the tyres - what happens when you cross a deepish stream?
