Latest News


It’s that time of year again but colder weather doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your caravan or motorhome. With efficient heating systems, you can enjoy your vehicle all the year round.

In this article, we’ll go over the main benefits of winter touring and give you some top tips on how to get the most out of your caravan / motorhome and most importantly, stay safe.

One great benefit is that most campsites will be open for much longer and it will also be much quieter compared to summer times. The prices will be much more reasonable as well. Another benefit is that using your caravan or motorhome more regularly will help to reduce any dampness and generally maintain a good running order.

Wherever you’re planning to go for a winter getaway, White Arches have some top tips on how to keep warm and have a hassle-free journey.

Winter touring

  • Preparation: The first thing that you need to ensure is that you are prepared to drive and tow in all weather conditions – be it snow, heavy winds or rain.
  • Speed: Keep an eye on your speed whilst driving, ice patches on the roads or heavy rainfall can make roads very dangerous, so it’s crucial to give yourself enough time and distance to brake.
  • Tyres: Check your tyre tread and pressure before setting off and in some cases it may be worth fitting winter tyres to your motorhome or caravan. In some countries, you may be required to have snow chains on, so always check the local legal requirements if travelled to another continent.
  • Fuel: Ensure that you have enough fuel before you begin your journey and check the oil and water levels too as well as screen wash and coolant. It’s important to check for any signs of wear and tear or damage on things like wipers and tyres.
  • Battery: If you keep your caravan or motorhome at home, ensure that your batteries are fully charged by hooking up to the mains using an adaptor.
  • Traffic & Weather: Before you set off, check the weather conditions and be sure to pack a warm set of clothes, blanket, boots, food and drink, phone chargers, jump leads and a torch just in case of emergency.
  • Weight: Make sure you’re not carrying too much and ensure that the weight is distributed equally for safe towing.


  • Gas: For colder weather conditions (below 5 degrees C), its best to use propane gas (LPG) as opposed to butane gas. It’s also recommended that you perform a gas safety check to ensure everything’s working safely.
  • Water: To stop your water from freezing over, purchase an insulated water carrier cover and also foam pipe lagging will prevent the external pipes from freezing.
  • Anti-freeze: Add just a little anti-freeze to the waste water tank and if you have a toilet cassette that is not heated, you can use a toilet additive that contains anti-freeze.
  • Grip mats: Make sure to take some grip or track mats so that you don’t get stuck in snow or muddy conditions.
  • Heating: If you do not have one of latest heating systems installed in your caravan or motorhome, use a mains operated heater or oil-filled free standing radiator – however, it’s recommended that you switch it off during the night or when you leave your van unattended.

Drain down:

Lastly, remember to empty any residual water in your caravan or motorhome pipes once you get back from your trip and put your van back into storage.

White Arches Caravans wish you happy and safe travels this winter and hope that these tips help you to prepare for your adventure.
