If you’re looking for a way to easily manoeuvre your caravan into position, look no further than a motor mover. Even the most modern and sophisticated caravan pitch can sometimes be a devil to move your vehicle up onto, especially if it is a large twin-axle tourer. Fitting the best caravan mover to your van will not only make parking simpler but can also increase security, as you can turn the caravan around and have the hitch facing your garage.

In short, it’s a caravan essential. So how do you pick the right one for you?

The Practical Caravan Awards 2024 are here to help. With our decades of collective experience within the industry, we’re perfectly placed to pick out the best caravan motor movers on the market, to help you find the right one for you.

Here is our round up of the standout motor movers on the market that can help you with that final push.

The best caravan motor mover is:

TowSure Move Master Mover

Towsure MoveMaster Caravan Mover

Reason to buy:

  • Easy to use app, few metal parts, lightweight

Reason to avoid:

  • Works on single axle caravans only.

This year’s winner of the best caravan mover category has been extensively redesigned to bring it down in weight by 4kg to 27kg, and so that it has fewer exposed metal parts: composite material is used wherever possible.

Not only that, you can now control the machine not from a remote control console which you are possibly going to lose, but from an app on your mobile phone! The mover also incorporates Emove’s electronic architecture, so that it can tell you when the battery on either the machine itself or in your caravan is low, and even if your caravan is overloaded.  It works on single axle caravans only, up to a weight of 2000kg.

Price: £569

On our shortlist for the best caravan motor mover are:

The Emove EM305

Emove EM305

Reason to buy:

  • Comes with all season covers so can stay on when your caravan’s in storage

Reason to avoid:

  • Not as suitable for small caravans as other models in this round-up

The EM305 is designed for single and twin axle caravans up to 2000kg in weight. Its rollers engage automatically and can even take account of the condition of your caravan tyres. The handset you can use to operate the move will tell you not only when to replace its batteries but also what the condition of the leisure battery or batteries in the caravan is.

The mover is fitted with soft start/stop technology to reduce jerking. The whole machine also has all season covers, so you don’t need to worry about leaving it in position on the caravan if you store the vehicle over winter.

Quattro Diamond Auto Engage Motor Mover

Quattro Diamond Auto Engage Motor Mover

Reason to buy:

  • Easy to control, seven-year warranty

Reason to avoid:

  • Can’t manage slopes above 15%, expensive

The twin rotor on this mover can manage weights of up to 2500kg – so including large twin axles – and inclines of up to 15%. It can all be managed from the toggle on the remote control console, which also includes a diagnostic screen which lets you know how much of your battery is being used.

It’s so water resistant that you can even put it through a power wash and it will still work. It also comes with a seven-year warranty.

Price: £1234.05

Leisurewize EM203 Caravan Mover

Leisurewize EM203 Caravan Mover

Reason to buy:

  • Lightweight, good price

Reason to avoid:

  • Has to be manually engaged

The EM203 is an entry-level, chain-driven motor mover you have to engage manually. Once that is done, however, you can manoeuvre it easily with the remote control console.

With a speed of up to 9cm per second, it works on caravans up to 1800kg in weight (or 1600kg on an 18% slope), so is suitable for single and smaller twin-axle caravans. And as it only weighs 27kg it shouldn’t eat too much into your caravan’s payload.

Purple Line Enduro 2 Caravan Mover

Reason to buy:

  • Simple to use, good price

Reason to avoid:

  • May not work on very wide caravans

The over size rollers on this mover can be engaged via a lever from either side of the caravan simultaneously. The machine can manage loads of up to 2250kg and works with all Al-Ko and BPW chassis, at widths of up to 2.40m. You can programme it for a soft start, but it can manage speeds of up to 11.45cm per second. It comes with a five-year warranty.
