Morco Water Heater Shortage – We Still Have Stock… for now

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

There is currently a widespread shortage of water heaters in the static caravan industry.

Morco Products – the mains supplier of industry standard water heaters are currently sold out of most models.

As their factories are on summer shutdown, they will have no more stock until the middle of September.

Morco may have ran out of water heaters but we still have some… for now. They are selling so fast that we are unlikely to have enough to last until September though.

Caravan Accessory Shop to the Rescue

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Caravan on fireIt was an eventful day here at the Caravan Accessory Shop during the busy half term week…….

A Gentleman came rushing in to the shop asking for an extinguisher to use on his caravan that had caught fire just outside.

Thanks to our quick thinking staff we were able to offer assistance, disconnecting the caravan’s gas cylinders, before local fire crews arrived.

Thankfully no one was injured, although a sadly damaged caravan remains.

Let this be a lesson to all… ensure your caravan or motorhome is stocked with all of the necessary safety devices before heading out on your holidays this summer.

Carry on Caravanning!

Monday, November 11th, 2013

Further to our recent blog The Great Outdoors we are now giving you 5 products to make winter touring more enjoyable:

1. Low Wattage Heaters
An essential for all Caravans and Motorhomes to provide extra heat!
Always check that your gas appliances are in good working order and if necessary consult a gas safe engineer. We will soon be putting together a handy trouble shooting guide to Morco water heaters…watch this space!

2. Moisture Munchers
Use moisture absorbers and traps in your Caravan or Motorhome for a safe effective way to reduce condensation and damp.

3. Insulated aquaroll covers
Reduce the risk of your water freezing whilst caravanning in the winter months. In the summer the cover can be reversed, helping to reflect sunlight and keep water cooler.

4. Grip Tracks
Most sites will close grass pitches during winter, however, if you are allocated a grass pitch, ensure you don’t get stuck in the mud by using grip track, wedges, ground mats and chocks.

5. Dometic Winter Covers
Ensure your fridge doesn’t over cool when temperatures drop by fitting a purpose made cover to fit the vent on the outside of your Caravan or Motorhome.

So once again folks we have given you more reasons to get out and about this winter.
Get in touch with any suggestions you have for a warmer Winter in the Caravan.

Government U-turn on Static Caravan Sales Vat Rise

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Great news for the static caravan industry this morning as plans to impose a full 20% vat rate on static caravan sales have been placed on hold.

Rather than the planned 20% vat rate from October, there will now be a lower 5% vat rate implied from April 2013. Removable contents of the caravan will be continued to be charged at the full vat rate (as has always been the case).
