Just a quick note to let anyone with an aerolite caravan that has problems with the overrun dampner. Dont dispair. Parts to fix this are available in Australia. If you give Matt or Kevin from AL-KO Brisbane a call they will be able to source the dampner (mine come from Germany). It wasn't expensive but means that the Caravan is once again usable.
It is easy for people to tell you to get rid of it etc. but if you have forked out the money for it and cannot afford to update, you have to do the best you can to make it workable!!!.
We don't mind ours - have had it rewelded in the past, but at the end of the day it probably is as comfortable as a $20K more expensive van and more importantly - we own it,
