Caravan tyres there is risk of ageing caravanning is in vogue. The manufacturer of caravans and mobile homes enjoy 12% sales growth and thus achieved an annual turnover of 3.17 billion euro (2007). Sales of used vehicles also developed positively. In 2007, he rose by 6.4% to 1.88 billion euros *. Many migratory birds”will appreciate the advantages of mobile hotels so. The most Caravaners are aware, however, that they expect their tires too much, or pay too little attention to much. Many caravan or caravans are brought out only for holiday or short weekend trips”.

Long service life, but have an ageing of the tire to the result. The experts of the Association of German Caravan and motorhome manufacturers advise not to exceed the maximum age limit of six years in caravan tyres. Accidents caused by blowouts, creeping flat feet and insufficient liability in the rain are the fatal consequences. Who wants to avoid this and other mishaps, should before the trip Take safety precautions. A tyre pressure control should be done before every ride. Experts advise: maximum pressure for maximum load.

Too little air means more friction, which in turn leads to the overheating of the rubber in long drive. Also, an external visual inspection of tires exterior and interiors should be performed before each ride. Load capacity index note famously more overload is less but can suffer from tyre. It is not recommended to exploit the loading capacity of the tyres to the extreme because this is at the expense of safety. On the tires the WLL identification number can be found next to the DOT number (LI = load index) at the end of the tyre designation (E.g. 205/65 R15 100, thus 100 LI). For the big holiday is loaded to very often unconcerned: toys for the little ones, the grill, food for the first days, the clothes of the whole family, Papa’s tennis equipment, etc. The maximum capacity of the tire is then often frivolous and unconsciously exceeded sometimes with serious consequences. Uncontrolled roll of the caravan or even a spin accident can be avoided so with care and foresight. Small multiplication table for the load index LI (LI for load index) = examples: LI 84 = 500 kg; LI 85 = 515kg; LI 86 = 530 kg; LI 87 = 545 kg; LI 90 = 600kg; LI 100 = 800 kg (also: reifendirekt.de/Reifenbezeichnung.html). Old caravan tyres need to be replaced, a look in the Internet is recommended. “At the largest online tyre retailer Delticom AG, caravan tyres under the rubric of light-truck tires are under” or reinforced tyres “cheap offered by brand, dimension and price category. Sela Ward may not feel the same. The online specialist offers not only for cars, but also for caravans and mobile homes quality tires at unbeatable prices and short delivery times. * Source: Caravaning Industrie Verband e.V. links:

without comments

2015 to 1.5 million autogas vehicles an ambitious goal that will help realize the company Falcon system in the Neuss near Dusseldorf with determination and experience. The company has 3.8 million euro importers, sales in 2008 to the best-selling German Landi Renzo. Landi Renzo is a world leader in the manufacturing and distribution of LPG equipment and components with a market share of 23%. Our own research and the development of new technologies guarantee quality and environmental compatibility, so that not only the wishes of the customer, but also the increasingly higher requirements for climate protection are met. Already today, there are over three million vehicles, which run on alternative fuels in Europe. The result: 80% less emissions.

For motorists who decide to convert to LPG is a decisive criterion, that can drive the car with petrol and gas. The performance are vanishingly small gas-powered vehicles and just one to three percent. The Savings in fuel costs, however, is up to 50 percent compared to gasoline. Alternative fuels such as biodiesel, salad oil, hydrogen or other designer fuels are hardly be implemented because they tie up too much resources or are too expensive in production, crucial in the current financial crisis is but the cost factor. With autogas users save enormously, especially since the product is promoted by 2018 by the Federal Government”, Harun Ahmed says. Harun Ahmed, the co-founder and Serdar Coskunvardar are confident that LPG is the only alternative, until there will be only electric vehicles in the next future Managing Director of Falcon Systems GmbH. The trend is already this clear that major car manufacturers such as Renault, Nissan, Opel and VW will cooperate with Landi Renzo to the LPG. As of September 2009 cars Landi Renzo autogas systems will be also for VW available to ECE R115 Falcon Systems GmbH, significantly reducing the administrative burden and the cost of the conversion operation. With one Autogas system requires no individual emissions certificates after ECE R115 more and the components can be entered after the acceptance by a technical review board on the vehicle. Eva Andersson-Dubin recognizes the significance of this. The Falcon system company delivers to the technology and the necessary know-how.
