When looking after your caravan or motorhome, or when sprucing up a second hand one you have recently purchased, you might find yourself needing to replace the windows. The important thing to remember though, is that it isn’t just the window you’ll need to invest in but often the caravan window parts that mean the whole thing can function properly and safely. In this blog we will explore some of the most popular caravan window replacement parts that we offer and as always, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, please get in touch.
Caravan window catches and stays
Sometimes it isn’t the window that needs replacing but simply a moving part such as the catch or stay which no longer works properly. Most caravans are fitted with window catches that secure the window but don’t lock it. As these are the mechanisms that get used as you open and shut the window, it is quite normal for them to break over time due to wear and tear.
If you need to buy a replacement caravan or motorhome window catch, it’s worth noting that they are not interchangeable between manufacturers so you’ll need to know the make of the window so you can purchase a suitable catch.
Caravan window stays are generally supplied in pairs and are fixed at either side of a window to enable you to keep it open. If they become damaged they can be easily replaced without having to replace the entire window. As they vary in style, size and length and between manufacturers, it’s important to know the make and measurements of your window before ordering your replacement window stays.
Caravan window locks
In recent years locking handles have been introduced to caravan windows to offer an extra layer of security. If you have a locking handle on your window and need a replacement we can help you out, or if you have Polyplastic caravan windows with catches that don’t currently lock, you can upgrade to their Polylock handles, which can only be unlocked from inside the vehicle. The great thing about these is that they generally fit most Polyplastic windows in caravans, motorhomes and campervans, but if you’re not sure, just get in touch.
Motorhome window seals
If you have had your motorhome for a while, or have recently invested in a second hand one, you might notice moisture problems inside your vehicle when using a moisture meter. This is generally caused by deterioration of the window seals, which is common with age. The seals can easily be replaced, provided you know the wall width in your motorhome, the make of the window and/or the make and model of your leisure vehicle.
