What Pressures Should I Set My Caravan Tyres To?


The recommended tyre pressure for your caravan can usually be found on a sticker or plate on the inside of the caravan door or in the vehicle owners manual. It's important to use the correct tyre pressure as specified by the manufacturer to ensure safe and efficient operation of the caravan. 

It's also important to regularly check the tyre pressure when the tyres are cold and inflate or deflate as necessary. When checking your tyre pressures, have a quick glance over the condition of your tyres! Have a look for any cuts, bulges or defects in the tyres.

Also check for any cracking in the rubber as this could be age related and an indication that your tyres may be around the 5/6 year mark and are in need of replacement.

Checking The Age Of Your Tyres

You can find out the manufacture date of your tyres by looking at the sidewall. You're looking for a stamp as shown below.


The above numbers [2221] indicate that this tyre was manufactured in the 22nd week of 2021

It's also recommended to check the tyre pressure when the caravan is loaded with your belongings and when it is empty, as the weight of the load can affect the tyre pressure. If you're towing your caravan, the pressure should be set to the maximum pressure recommended by the tyre manufacturer.

How Do I Know My Caravan Tyre Pressures if They're Not on the Plate on the Caravan?

If the recommended tyre pressure for your caravan is not on a sticker or plate on the inside of the door or in the vehicle owner's manual, you can check the manufacturer's website for the specifications of your specific caravan model. Another option would be to contact the manufacturer directly and ask for the recommended tyre pressure for your caravan.

Another way to consider tyre pressure is to look on the sidewall of the tyre. Most tyres will have a series of numbers and letters printed on the sidewall that indicate the tyre's load capacity and maximum inflation pressure. Once you know the maximum, you can lower to suit the weight and control on the road. This information can be used as a guide, but it's always best to check the manufacturer's recommendations for your specific caravan model.
