Caravan Repair and Service

Caravans should be serviced at approximately every 10,000km to ensure that they are as safe as possible on the road. Just like your vehicle, suspension and brake components wear on your caravan and will need servicing and repairs. We can service and maintain modern electric brake systems to ensure they're performing properly. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect the underbody of your caravan and check the chassis for cracks and inspect these other components:

  • Coupling
  • Park brake operation
  • Electric brakes
  • Wheel bearings
  • Seals
  • Suspension
  • Wheels
  • Tyres
  • Break away system
  • Lights
  • Much more  

Caravans that sit in storage also require regular maintenance to ensure they are safe when it comes time to use them. Components such as bearings and tyres need inspections regularly. Speak with our team about a pre-holiday inspection so that your caravan is safe on the road during your next trip. We are a Caravan Industry of Victoria member so you can be confident your caravan is in capable hands. We also carry a huge range of spare parts and components to ensure all repairs can be performed in a timely manner. If your caravan is in need of a service or repair, contact us today.

Certified Dexter Sway Control Installer

The Dexter Sway Control device is used to improve towing safety by monitoring trailer sway. In the event of trailer sway it will apply the brakes independently to control any excessive movement. Big gusts of winds, or large oncoming vehicles can often make your trailer sway and put you out of control. If you are having issues with trailer sway, speak to us today about installing a Dexter Sway Control device. Our exclusive supplier for Dexter Sway Control device is Melbourne Caravan and Trailer Supplies. For more information, contact us today.

Boat Trailer Repairs

Boat trailers are regularly submerged in water, this results in an increased rate of corrosion and damage to brake and suspension components. For those that own boat trailers, this means regular servicing and maintenance is a must, so that your brakes don't seize and other components continue performing as intended. Other trailer components such as the suspension and chassis can also wear and corrode at an increased rate as a result of salt water.

Boat trailers over 2 tonne use a electric/hydraulic brake system. Stop Fast are specialists in both Dexter and AL-KO Sensor Brake and can repair and service them professionally.

Bearings within your hub can wear and fail if they are exposed to the harmful salt water. Our team use only the very best marine hub seals to ensure optimal longevity and reliability for all repairs. If your boat trailer is in need of repair, give us a call today and we'll come to you and inspect the whole trailer so that is as safe as possible on the road. For more information, contact us today.

Trailers and Horse Floats

As well as boat trailer and caravans, our highly skilled technicians can also repair other types of trailers and horse floats. Our team can professionally repair your trailer's suspension so that it handles as best as possible on the road. Stop Fast are specialists in the following suspension systems and many more:

  • Basic slipper springs
  • Rocker tandem suspension
  • Roller rocker tandem
  • Torque flex rubber housed axles
  • Independent coil spring suspension

Hub bearings are another component that also commonly causes break downs for all types of trailers. When these fail and collapse, these should be replaced by a professional to ensure the new components last as long as possible. We use only the best quality greases, lubricants and parts in all of our repairs. Not only do we service trailers but we can also upgrade them for you too. Brake, suspension and axle upgrades can all be performed by our skilled technicians to improve load carrying ability. We can also install trailer accessories, including LED lights which are a reliable and effective lighting solution for your trailer.

At Stop Fast we can also perform fleet maintenance for your trailers. We currently work with a number of large government and private companies performing fleet repairs and servicing on their trailers.

If your trailer is in need of a service or repair, or you'd like an assessment by Stop Fast, please don't hesitate to contact us.
