THE ONLY FORUM FOR ENTHUSIASTS OF CLASSIC SAFARI CARAVANS MADE BETWEEN 1948 AND 1982.
This group was started in 2003, with the aim of encouraging the preservation and enjoyment of all Safari Caravans made before 1978 and of the classic shape with the drop front side window made until 1982.
We try to assist owners in preservation, restoration, sales and purchase of these excellent Caravans. Membership is open to anyone who owns, has owned, or would like to own a Safari caravan, or is a supplier of products or services directly related to these Caravans.
The world's largest collection of photographs of Safari Caravans is now on the Facebook group.
The travel on my jockey wheel has been rather small since purchase (due to rust in the thread I guess) and I set about trying to service it this weekend. I tried unwinding it so it came apart but in fact it has got so far then seized completely.
The old knob - clearly repaired in the past - has also now come off.
Any suggestions as to how I deal with this? I've tried spraying lubrication into the top of it (just where the winder meets the main tube) but this doesn't seem to have made any difference.
Should I just cut it off with an angle grinder and start anew? If so, where to get a similar looking jockey?
