Heating Diesel & Gas
There 2 main sources of heating – Diesel heating and gas/LPG heating
We install all brands of heaters such as
Eberspacher Webasto Truma Propex Gasquip
Our personal preference is the diesel Eberspacher (German designed) diesel heater for several reasons…
- Fuel sources: Many motorhomes and caravans already use LPG for fridges, cooking, and water heating. By using another fuel is spreading the load over more power/ fuel sources.
- Safely: LPG is safe to use, if checked and maintained appropriately and with a LGP detector. However, Diesel is less combustible and does not have the leak potential of LPG.
- Diesel Heaters also have superior heating and burn dry heat preventing condensation.
- Quieter and better temperate control
No brand OR branded models purchased online from overseas including the locally rebranded diesel heaters often contain low quality components and could result in safety issues.
- We install most Motor movers both dual and single axle.
- Manual, semi-automatic & fully automatic
- Camec Elite 2 & Elite Pro2
- Powr Touch Evolution Single & dual axle
- Kronings semi-automatic single & dual axle
In some of the bigger caravans such as the Australian outback caravans, are not suitable for motor movers and would respond as well as on a smaller caravan.

- Under New Zealand Motorhome and Caravan Association – NZMCA and NZ Lifestyle Camping.
- A certified self-contained vehicle meets the ablutionary and sanitary needs of the occupants for a minimum of three days, without requiring any external services or discharging waste.
- Certified self-containment is maintaining and certifying your motor caravan or caravan in accordance with the New Zealand Standard for Self-Containment of Motor Caravans and Caravans, NZS 5465:2001
Roof Vents and Skylights
We install most roof vent and skylights; these make a difference to the airflow within the van.
However, one thing to consider when installing vents into smaller, low roof vans. There is the possibility that there may be some noticeable chill, draft, and air movement, due to the proximity of the vent, especially over the bed area.
