Levelling your caravan or motorhome is one of the first jobs when you arrive at your holiday destination. Whether it be for a one-night stopover, or a two week summer holiday, your vehicle needs to be level for many reasons.
The traditional, manual way to level your vehicle is tedious, hard work and can be quite time-consuming. Especially if you’re having to set up in the dark or after a long journey.
A hydraulic levelling system takes all that pain away and levels the vehicle perfectly in under two minutes. Leaving you to get the bags unpacked and start enjoying your break. Simply, all you have to do is press a button and the system levels your vehicle for you.
Here are the three main things you need to know about a hydraulic level system. You can find more detail about the systems below, but in a nutshell, here are three key things to consider;
It’s easy to use. You don’t have to be technical. You just press a button and the system does everything for you. You don’t even need to maintain the system as it’s all contained within a closed-loop hydraulic system. There is no need for a spirit level, chocks, drill for winding the legs down or any other gadget or tool.
2. Solid and stable position
Levelling your motorhome or caravan is important to maintain good working order of the fridge and to ensure good drainage from your sink and shower tray. It also protects you from buffeting in strong winds and helps to ensure you aren’t sleeping on an angle! But for added comfort, a strong and stable levelled pitch will stop any sway when walking in and out and through your vehicle. Making your vehicle a much more comfortable environment.
3. Payload pay off
The system is hydraulic so is very strong and can support pretty much any motorhome or caravan, but doesn’t take away too much weight from your payload. There obviously is some weight added to the vehicle, but it’s only 25kg for caravans and 55kg for motorhomes up to 5.5 tonnes GVW. Still giving you plenty of payload for the extra comfy camping chairs.
There are three versions of the system: The main two systems are Level M for motorhomes and Level C for caravans, but there is also Level C Compact for caravans which is a semi-automatic levelling system (we call it semi-automatic because you still need to wind the corner steadies down manually so it’s a little different).
Select your level:
LEVEL M for motorhomes
LEVEL C for caravans
LEVEL C COMPACT for caravans
