DIY Learning Centre | How To

Sometimes the hardest part to starting a new project is thinking that you might not have the skills, or the information available to address each and every issue you encounter along the way.

But if you break the project into a number of steps and research how to carry out each separate step, it can make the process a lot easier. So at DIY Caravans we are here to help, and have put together a comprehensive list of “How To’s” that will help you with each stage of your chosen caravan or RV build.

Let us guide you through the steps and give you the confidence to carry out your build without major issues. Our aim is to provide you with the knowledge BEFORE you start. Once you have ordered parts etc it may be very difficult to make changes – spending time at the beginning getting the design right will pay dividends!

Make sure you use the search facility at the top of the page to get the project information you need.
