Motorhome Rust Prevention

Motorhomes, caravans and campervans are an investment, that provide freedom and quality leisure time.

Owners often maintain the areas of the vehicle they can see, the underside is easily forgotten.

Everyday use, stone chips, road grit, storm water, and winter road salt can attack the vehicles underside. Once bare metal is uncovered, it quickly oxidises and the rust process starts. Major rust damage is expensive to repair and can also trigger MOT failure (motorhome, campervan). 

Whilst caravans do not have an MOT, as a mechanical vehicle, they also suffer from the same everyday challenges as motorhomes and campervans.

Some motorhome, caravan and campervan manufacturers now insist on wax based products being applied under the vehicle at every service.

To reduce the risk of rust and water ingress to under floor, specialist rust-prevention products have been developed.

 Bristol Caravans offer a rust-prevention service along the following lines:

  • On ramp pre-work damage / rust inspection.
  • Pre-treatment wash, with degreaser to remove road salt, grime, oil.
  • Underbody area assessment, including: Cab chassis, chassis box section, engine, transmission, running gear and habitation floor.
  • Air & Compressed air dry.
  • Remove wheels.
  • Fit protective coverings to vehicle & key areas ie brakes.
  • Apply area specific products:
  • – Chassis internal sections ie cavity wax with active rust inhibitor
  • – Underbody, chassis & ply floor
  • – Wheel arch stone chip
  • Once dry, re-assemble ready for collection
  • Post application, book a yearly inspection when in for service.
