I 2006 was more caravan owner summoned via Vehicle Registration Office on the INSTANTLY had an appointment with the nearest authorized dealer for, to get checked windows, as their and the road users could be at risk, if the outer pane dislodged while driving.
This is because the two halves of the window may separate and, it has been shown that the necessary adhesion between the two halves of the window of information can go at high UV radiation. Since most caravan manufacturers have windows to their caravans from the same place (in this case in Dutch window producer), the problem was identified in several caravan brands from 1998 to about. year 2005, Bürstner was blah. one of the brands that were affected by the problem. The supplier of the windows with the above error for caravan manufacturers were the Dutch company polyplastic.nl.
Campers could through their website enter their VIN into, and check their caravan was covered by the problem.
Replacement of windows was carried out at no cost to caravan owners. Typically costing a window ca. kr. 6- 7.000,-.
Not all campers had replaced the windows to new free, but got other hand, offered a permanent screw loosening per. Kulans. Some campers who wanted to replace windows, were offered replacement against a co-payment per. window switch.
A screw resulted solution, that mechanically secures the inner and outer plastic glazing with one another. The fixing was performed at each corner of the window, and one can see the attachments externally which finishes with a small plug – If your caravan is from above year, and there are screws between the inner- and exterior plastic window, is carried out repairs frequently result in the above method.

Several campers have experienced, the floor is soaked in a defined area. Several campers with caravans Kabe had such problems with the floor was soaked in a defined area. The reason has typically been, that the glue which is applied between the metal plate that keeps the floor heating, polystyrene (insulation) and vene- not bind more. Other brands of caravans than Kabe not have hydronic floor heating, which has the same problem with soft floor, due oftes, the glue which is applied between polystyrene (insulation) and vene- not bind more.
Some campers have had their caravan errors floor rectified by Kabe factory while others have been rectified the problem dealer. There are among others tried methods, where dwellers a series of holes, after which the foam is injected into the floor structure. After the foam is cured to, the holes are covered with a træprop. All work is carried out from under the caravan.

Considering the caravan as indicated in weight:
Many caravan owners have got a surprise after they have bought their caravan, because they had faith they can blame xxx kg in the caravan from the declared weight. Subsequently, some caravan owners gained control weighed his caravan, and subsequently received a surprise, the specific weight is found to be greater than or much larger than the illuminated, some even as much larger, that the caravan could not be used to run on the road because everything had to be loaded in the car.
Older campers could already factory weigh more than the manufacturer had indicated, but the manufacturers have for many years now control considered “weight”, on each caravan at the factory, to make sure it stays within a certain tolerance, therefore found problems with ridges weight soul ended up on newer vehicles.
A caravan may weigh 5 % more “specific weight” than stated by the manufacturer, for example, a caravan is given to 1.000 kg in weight, it must weigh 1.050 kg in weight – That is typically not able to pursue a legal case with the dealer / manufacturer if it weighs less than 5 % of the declared weight.
For example, a Wilk from 2006 been checking weighed factory, there was a control weighing slip from the factory as indicated what the factory had weighed the caravan before it left the production hall. Later, some years later the caravan check-weighed by an approved weighing station from DCU, and it turned out that the weight factory had indicated was correct in 1 % deviation – This is very nice.
The curb weight is illuminated from the caravan enlightened standard equipment, so if you order a factory fitted optional equipment on a standard model caravan, the weight will be increased, like if you later have installed additional equipment will own weight also be increased – Fitting options beyond standard equipment, is not calculated in the 5% as the caravan must weigh more than enlightened self weight.
There are some caravans that are for sale today where frivægten (difference between weight and total weight) is very small, eg 200 kg frivægt, and then there are mounted additional equipment, then there is not much left for clothes, mad, o.s.v.. Some of these vehicles may be a challenge with, to be used as running caravans. Some caravan dealers have begun to make extra attention to the low weight of these caravans, where they are aware of there can be a problem.
