We do more than provide caravan and camper trailer hire at Adventure Shack!

If you already own your own Recreational Vehicle, rest assured that we also provide caravan repairs and maintenance and have a range of parts and accessories available at our Chandler showroom, close to Capalaba. Or if you don’t have the time to hook up your van, let us come to you! Our mobile service technician covers Redlands, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast Even if there’s nothing ostensibly wrong with your caravan or camper trailer, it’s imperative that you have a regular service; particularly areas like brakes, bearings and suspension. However at Adventure Shack we also cover all the extras that can sometimes be forgotten like the caravan awning or caravan windows. You do not want these ‘liveable’ areas to fail while they are in use! A caravan or camper trailer is your temporary home-on-wheels and needs to be treated with the respect it deserves. It’s also important to ensure that cooking appliances, refrigerators, plumbing and electrical systems are regularly tested.

The professionals at Adventure Shack will inspect your caravan or camper trailer from top to bottom and test all the key elements which can malfunction. We’ve got years of experience and know just what to look for. We will also inspect and repair any build-up of moisture in the interior, which may lead to problems down the track. It is much easier to treat them at an early stage. A service every year is relatively cheap when compared to expensive repairs down the track.
