We’ve got our fingers crossed for great weather this bank holiday and throughout the half term week to help make the 13th National Camping and Caravanning Week (NCCW) a big success.

The NCCW, which runs from Monday 27 May to Sunday 2 June, is organised by the Camping and Caravanning Club and aims to celebrate the nation’s love for camping, caravanning and the great outdoors.

And to mark the occasion, the Club is hosting a number of exciting events on selected Club Sites and Camping in the Forest Sites – including a showcase event at its Hertford Site.

Each event has a ‘Club Perks’ theme that demonstrates the benefits of camping; whether it’s a leisurely family bike ride, great food or family-friendly games and competitions, the week will have something for everyone to enjoy.

If you are planning on hitting the road for a holiday during the next few days it is well worth taking a few minutes to make sure your motorhome or caravan tyres are up to scratch.

One of the most important tasks to check is that your motorhome and caravan tyres are properly inflated.

If motorhome or caravan tyres have been left under-inflated before use, not only is vehicle handling likely to be affected but excessive heat is also likely to build up inside the tyre, increasing the likelihood of a rapid deflation which can endanger the lives of the driver, passengers and other road users.

Pressure should be checked when the motorhome and caravan tyres are cold. You should also give your motorhome and caravan tyres a thorough visual inspection, paying careful attention to the sidewall area of the tyre which may have suffered from UV damage over the winter months and will be evident from signs of the rubber cracking.

Any objects embedded in the tread area of the motorhome or caravan tyres should be removed and tread depths should be checked to ensure they comply with the legal minimum regulations of 1.6mm or tread across the central three quarters of the tyre around its entire circumference.

If you spend just a few minutes checking your motorhome and caravan tyres before travelling you could save yourself a host of problems down the road.
