Caravan Modifications Melbourne

Your caravan is an investment in your spirit of adventure. At Emu we are experienced undertaking all sorts of trailer and caravan modifications that allow you to venture off road and upgrade your comfort and level of safety. We also welcome larger custom modification projects for a range of trailers and caravans and are known across Melbourne and Victoria for our custom conversions. Modifications are also available for campervans, camper trailers, even horse floats.

Specialist Caravan Modifications

We take on specialised modification projects, fitting out caravans and horse trailers with custom interiors. If you have a caravan, horse float or trailer that you want to convert for a special purpose, we’re the ones for the job. We have worked on a variety of successful custom modifications for commercial businesses and individuals across Melbourne and Victoria, including a recent modification and fit out for the Clean As Caspar business. In 2018 we completed a Mack Truck Transformation project. All our caravan modifications are done in our Ferntree Gully workshop.

Brake System Modifications

We install new braking systems on your caravan or camper trailer to improve the driving experience and safety performance on the road. We can install electronic security brakes (Alko ESC) to your caravan.

Caravan Modifications For Heating

Common caravan modifications involve installing improved heating systems. We install diesel or gas heating systems in caravans.

Water and Pump Systems

We install grey water and fresh water systems to caravans. Many parks do not permit caravans to dispose of their grey water on grass and in bushland. Grey water systems allow adventurers to store their grey water and caravans can be fitted with a grey water tank.

Fresh water tanks allow adventurers to store fresh drinking water for times when there may no reliable supply of drinking water. Fresh water storage varies, from small tanks with a filter and pump, to larger tanks fitted underneath the vehicle.

Other Caravan Repairs & Modifications

Regular travel over long distances, as well as common camping mishaps and wear and tear, mean caravan repairs are inevitable. Whether for minor repairs or major caravan modifications, Emu takes care of all your caravan repairs, including caravan awnings, body repairs, air conditioner, fridge and electrical repairs.

Caravan Awning Repairs

Damage to a caravan awning is common and can result from a storm or a branch falling on the caravan awning. It is important to stay away from overhead branches and do not leave your awning out in a severe storm. To prevent mould, make sure your awning is dry before you store it for long periods.  Common caravan awning repairs to caravans and RVs involve rips, as well as broken aluminium legs and extenders.

Caravan Window Repairs

Caravan windows can need attention as a result of silicone seals deteriorating, broken hinges or cracks or discolouring of the polycarbonate or acrylic glass. We’re happy to do all caravan window repairs, no matter how old your caravan.

Caravan Electrics

With prior experience in the electrical trade, we are one of a few of Melbourne’s caravan repairs businesses who can take care of a range of electrical repairs on your caravan, motorhome or camper trailer. Whether repairs to 12volt or 240volt systems, heater or air conditioner repairs, cameras, or installation of LED energy saving globes, we will ensure everything is working efficiently and safely when you’re on the road.

Caravan Body Repairs

We do repairs to the fibreglass and aluminium bodywork and panels of caravans, as well as external fittings. These can be damaged as a result of impact or other accidents. With all caravan repairs we take the time to make sure your vehicle is sealed correctly to protect it from the moisture and rain that can damage internal framing and cause mould to grow.  When necessary we also repair the internal timber or aluminium framing.

Caravan Axle Repairs & Suspension Repairs

We do repairs to suspension on caravans and trailers, allowing for a smoother ride and carry heavier loads.

Caravan Fridge Repairs & Caravan Air Conditioner Repairs

We take care of any repairs to the fridge or the airconditioning systems in your caravan or rv motorhome. If you have an older caravan, we can upgrade your van to better quality or more efficient systems.
