Lately, IHas your motor mover damaged your tourer's tyres?’ve been hearing stories about movers damaging the tyres on caravans. So far however, they’ve been anecdotal with the information is coming via third parties. What worries me is that if they are true then the industry needs to do something about it. So I would like to compile a survey of actual instances of damage which I will then send to the relevant people – which is why I need your help.

If you have suffered damage to the tyres – or any other damage – as a result of having a mover fitted to your caravan could you please email or write to me giving the following details: your name; the make and model of your caravan; the name of the mover; how long you’ve had it; what damage has been caused; what steps, if any, has the mover manufacturer has taken to rectify the situation. A digital photo would also be of great value.
Email me at doug@practicalcaravan.com or if you’d rather write, send a letter to:
