The names are manifold, often the different mover types don't really differ, but sometimes elementary differences emerge. We try to eliminate these below with descriptions of the various brands and manoeuvring aids. In the end, it is usually your gut feeling and your wallet that decide which mover to buy.
Important key data:
- How heavy is your caravan?
- Tandem axle?
Do the movers need TÜV (MOT)?
In principle, all delivered manoeuvring aids are accompanied by an instruction manual. This includes an ABE. Due to the General operating permit you do not need to present your caravan to the TÜV (MOT).
How does a manoeuvring aid work?
The caravan manoeuvring aid can be mounted in front of or behind the wheels of the caravan. It is attached to the chassis of your caravan. The drive roller with swivel mechanism, which is driven by an electric motor, is pressed onto the tyres. The two motors drive the tyres separately. This allows your Mover to perform very tight parking manoeuvres. Your caravan can now be manoeuvred with the remote control. Backwards, forwards and swivelling is easy via joystick, touch control or smartphone app. Power is supplied via the optional Power Pack. Before installing your Caravan Mover, pay attention to the approved payload. This is because the empty weight of your camper can increase considerably after the manoeuvring aid has been installed. For various caravan models, special adapter sets are required for secure attachment.
Mover: semi-automatic or fully automatic?
Semi-automatic or fully automatic? What is the difference apart from the price? Both types of manoeuvring aid are moved with the remote control, so that cannot be the decisive factor for the naming.
The solution is quite simple:
- semi-automatic manoeuvring aid –- here the drive shaft of the mover is pressed manually, usually by lever or crank on the tyres
- fully automatic manoeuvring aid – in this case the drive shaft lowers automatically onto the tyres, manual intervention is not necessary.
Truma Mover XT or SX?
Truma has been building top-class caravan drives for many years. With the current gems the Truma Mover XT (up to 2300 kg) or the Truma Mover SX (up to 2000 kg), there are two popular manoeuvring aid lines in our shop. The Truma SX is a fully automatic mover, swings automatically to the tyres after switching on. The Mover XT works semi-automatically, here you have to "give it a hand" before parking. XT and SX are constantly being optimised by Truma. The Truma Mover can turn your caravan on the spot and overcome gradients of up to 13%.
