Make manoeuvring easy with a motor mover!
blog / advice / new caravans / pre-owned caravans
Adding a motor mover to your caravan purchase can make all the difference when it comes to parking and pitching your caravan - simply put, it makes manoeuvring a doddle!
Without a motor mover, you have the manual task of pushing and guiding your caravan into the perfect place when it comes to parking your caravan on your drive, putting it into storage or pitching up on site.
However you could take the easy option and let a motor mover do this for you! Have one fitted to your caravan and once you’ve brought the caravan to a stop in the approximate place you want it, you can then use the mover - which is essentially a remote control - to tweak the position and get it exactly where you want it.
Motor movers can be fitted to both single and twin axle caravans and they are effective for use on all types of ground surface, from tarmac and paving to grass, wet mud and even gravel!
At Winchester Caravans and Motorhomes we supply Powrtouch motor movers and we have three different models to offer. All our workshop technicians are fully trained to fit these in our NCC-approved workshop and we can arrange to do this as part of our pre-collection service to you.
Powrtouch is the UK’s top-selling brand.
Made with quality materials for a superior finish.
A five-year, no quibble parts and labour guarantee is provided with all products for complete peace of mind.
Powrtouch motor movers offer great value for money.
They offer a choice of models so there will be one to suit your caravan regardless of whether you have a single or twin axle.
What types of motor mover do we sell?
The Powrtouch Freedom is designed to fit caravans that have shock absorbers fitted or have a narrow gap (less than 105mm) between the chassis and the tyre. The Freedom is fitted with a reduction gearbox to provide more moving power to the caravan wheels than any other current traditional caravan mover. Under ideal conditions it is expected that this model will move a 1,500kg caravan up a 1 in 4 slope.
Powrtouch Evolution Manual Engage
The Powrtouch Evolution is a next generation motor mover that can manoeuvre caravans of up to 2,000kg. It is manufactured from lightweight alloy materials and has an ultra-efficient gearbox and a state-of-the-art 'four-pole' electric drive motor, enabling it to turn a caravan on its axis. The innovative dynamic roller location mechanism moves the rollers smoothly and directly on to the tyres, improving grip and driving power.
Powrtouch Evolution Auto Engage
This model offers all the same benefits of the manual engagement model above, but you will also benefit from the automatic engaging unit making your holiday experience even easier.
Powrtouch Evolution All Wheel Drive Twin Axle
With the addition of a further two driving wheels, the Powrtouch Evolution 'All Wheel Drive' is the ultimate caravan motor mover system. It provides the highest possible manoeuvrability of a twin axle caravan and is an essential product for tight turns in limited space. Available in both manual and auto options.
