I would seriously consider buying the Powrtouch as opposed to the Truma. Truma only guarantee their product for 1 YEAR and this does not include the rollers!

Powrtouch has a 5 YEAR no quibble gurantee, including the rollers! We had a slight problem with the 'engaging key' in that the small pin fell out and lost. Fortunately, we had a spare. However, when we rang Powrtouch, who are very helpful and friendly, they said they would put a replacement in the post. Within 24 hours we had two new keys in our hands. Great service.
The Truma mover carries a two year warranty and this does include the rollers.

Hi Keith it is indeed what you said ---I must read more carefully in future!!

I saw one of the Reich with four motors at Broad Lane Caravans and it looked most impressive.

Something out of giant machines and reminiscent of those low loaders that transport generators !!
ha ha yea right.

tell u what, fit a couple and u will start to hate the damned things.

Ive spent over 24 hours on them in the last month, i would really like to never see another one in my lifee, he he.

Just had my steriod jab...ouch! arm is seizing up so having to type one handed! Hopefully I will be able to man-handle the van on Saturday...if not we will have a delayed holiday until I can move it...cannot wait to try this mover out. I just found out that a person had a mover fitted had to then updgrade as it was not powerful enough for the van. The first one fitted was as advised for their van, but was not up to the job, they had to updgrade for one for a much bigger van at their expense...has any one else found this problem? I am trying to find out what make (I assume Powrtouch as i notice they do different types depending on the van). The reason I am concerned is they have the same van to us, albeit a different layout, but I presume the weight is going to be similar. Will find out what I can and post.

p.s. Powrtouch are recriuting for a fitter! Can't see them taking me on with my arm,, shame could of got a discount maybe!

I have now found out more and the people who had the mover fitted said it was the powrtouch, they had the basic model fitted but it was not up to the job and had to go for the powrtouch 3 in the end (the one with gears), It does not seem much more so I guess is worth the extra money given we have the same van, also if we do change to a bigger van (other than a twin axle) we know it will be OK to swop. They have also siad the warranty is excellent and here is a tip. If you have it fitted at home rather than a dealer and have trouble later, they will come out to you no matter where you are, however a dealer fit (I mean caravan dealer) would probably mean taking it back to them.
