From tyres and CatClamps to heating systems and solar panels, The Motorhome Repair Centre is Scotland’s No 1 choice for keeping you on the road in safety and comfort.
High quality product installations and regular maintenance of your caravan or motorhome will pay off in the long run with greater security and performance and improved resale value.
We have a wide range of new caravan and motorhome tyres available, with the added benefit of same day delivery (stock permitting) for special orders. Our technicians are expertly trained and can even repair most punctures, with all the necessary tools to remove and replace tyron bands.
Don’t let your holiday be spoilt by spending hours on roadside due to a caravan tyre failure. Always remember to check your caravan and motorhome tyres regularly and if you are not sure what condition your wheels are in, bring them along and we will carry out a FREE tyre health check for you!
As more people than ever look for a real home from home experience when they’re on the road, we are seeing increasing demand for satellite TV installations for caravans and motorhomes. It’s great to know that you can cosy up in your cabin for the evening and watch your favourite TV programme or tune into an unmissable sporting event whilst you’re on your adventures.
At the Motorhome Repair Centre, we install SatFi, Megasat and Tracvision satellite systems, all of which are resilient and easy to use. We are happy to advise on the best one to suit your needs, whether you’re travelling in the UK and Eire or venturing abroad.
Thefts of catalytic converters are on the rise. It can take just 20 seconds for a thief to remove the catalytic converter section of your exhaust system. Containing gold, platinum, palladium and rhodium, this is then sold on for scrap metal, leaving your motorhome damaged and likely repair bills of anything from £500 to £2500 or more. It also means a potential missed holiday and the cost of renting an alternative vehicle.
Protect your motorhome with a Catalytic Converter lock from CatClamp. Its exclusive cable cage design surrounds the converter with alloy steel or stainless steel clamps depending on the model. It has 40 feet of high grade aircraft steel cabling which creates a rattle proof cage, is corrosion proof and highly durable.
CatClamp comes in three models:
CatClamp is the first and only catalytic converter lock in the UK to gain national police approval.
Manoeuvring, parking or reversing a large motorhome without a parking camera is not always straightforward. Considering how much you’ve invested in your vehicle, it makes sense to protect it from being damaged by bumps or scrapes.
It’s thought that over 10% of motorhome damage insurance claims involve a collision with an immobile object or a third party when reversing. The average reversing claim costs in the region of £1500 so a reversing camera really is a sound investment.
The Motorhome Repair Centre supply and fit (or supply only) Waeco’s RVS-794 reversing camera. Equipped with an Easylink mount, the RVS-794 is easy to remove, whilst the backlit LED screen guarantees clarity of picture. The twin camera housing provides a close up view of the bumper whilst a second camera gives a more distant, wider view. An electronic guard protects the lenses whilst the integrated heater prevents freezing in winter.
Of further appeal is the fact that many insurers will offer a discount on your motorhome insurance premiums if you have a reversing camera fitted.
The Motorhome Repair Centre service and check a wide range of caravan and motorhome heating systems. Our technicians are fully trained and accredited by Truma, Alde and Webasto.
We work with Truma S2000 heaters, the Combi C heating range, Alde 3010 Compact HE combi boilers and Webasto blown air diesel fired heating systems, which means that you can enjoy the cosiness of a warm cabin as well as the convenience of instant hot water during your break.
What’s important is having a safe, reliable heating system which is responsive and easy to use, so that you can manage the heating to seat your requirements and wake up to a warm, comfortable cabin at the start of each day.
Ask a member of our team for a quote to service or undertake a safety test of your heating system.
For many people, one of the great appeals of having a caravan or motorhome is being able to really ‘get away from it all’. That means not being tied down – even to an electric hook-up point. And we all know that motorhomes need serious charging power when you’re away from a mains hook up, especially with power hungry appliances like fridges, freezers and kettles.
A solar panel kit permanently installed on your vehicle roof could be the answer. Unlike a generator, solar panels are quiet, environmentally friendly and have no on-going costs. All systems come professionally fitted with one year guarantee and have a regulator to prevent overcharging.
We can also supply Sunshine Portable Solar Kits, with no installation needed. Just hook the clamps directly onto the battery you want to charge and that’s it...so simple!
Winter is just around the corner, or depending on where you stay it is already here! If, like most people you aren’t packing off on a winter emigration we have collected a few hints and tips about how to look after your ‘van when its parked up during the winter. It is hugely important vehicles are ‘winterised’ through the colder months to avoid any unnecessary and sometimes very expensive damage being caused. Pipework, appliances and furniture are all venerable when lying up, unused for several weeks. Click for more info...
"Hello, darkness my old friend..." As we approach the end of the year and the dark nights roll in we would like to inform all of our customers that our opening hours are changing...slightly...
May I say thank you to all at Swinton/Motorhome Repair Centre for the excellent, efficient and friendly service received by your staff. The underbody was a mess, and please could you also convey our thanks to those responsible for this repair and for the underbody photographs which was so enlightening it was so in need of repair. (Lucky we did not fall through the Floorboards……) Thank you for the coffee which sent me on my way home, and, my wife loves your plastic cups which are now in use in the van. Wishing you continued success. Until our next service. Thank you.
