AL-KO Kober launches new motor-mover for single-axle touring caravans

AL-KO Kober Limited – the leading manufacturer of premium components for the automotive, commercial and leisure industries – has launched the AL-KO Ranger, a new manoeuvring system for single-axle touring caravans up to 1,800kg. 

Designed as a lower-cost, entry-level alternative to the company’s premium Mammut mover, the AL-KO Ranger features manual engagement onto the wheels when required and can be quickly disengaged once the caravan is in position. The motor units, situated in front of the axle to prevent damage from road debris, provide effortless and accurate manoeuvring control in even the narrowest of spaces, as well as on steep terrains up to 18% and for getting over obstacles up to two centimetres in height. The unit’s soft start and soft stop technology also provides enhanced, controlled and precise bump-free manoeuvring.

Commenting for AL-KO Kober, a spokesman says: “The new AL-KO Ranger motor-mover is an attractively-priced alternative for those people who want the combination of the trusted AL-KO brand name with a cost-effective price point, coupled with the benefit of easier manoeuvring of their caravan. Thanks to its easy-to-operate remote control, the mover provides millimetre-precise accuracy and completely effortless manoeuvrability. With the ability to complete a 360-degree rotation of single-axle touring caravans on the spot, the AL-KO Ranger puts the caravan in the right place, whether at home or on site.”

The AL-KO Ranger’s mechanics – including its aluminium rollers and motor units – are protected within a plastic housing mounted via a clamp mechanism to the underside of the caravan’s chassis. The electronics can be installed inside one of the caravan’s storage spaces; and an LED display on the controller and push-button remote control alerts users to various working limits of the motor mover.

Like AL-KO Mammut, the new Ranger is provided with a five-year warranty according to AL-KO Warranty Terms.

The AL-KO Ranger mover can be retrofitted to most caravans, including non AL-KO chassis caravans, and can be purchased from most caravan dealers, mobile fitting companies and caravan accessory outlets.  

Stocks of the motor-mover – which has a suggested retail price of £1,099.00 including installation – are available from caravan industry wholesaler, Leisure Plus, based in Hixon, Staffordshire.

For further information on the AL-KO Ranger or the company’s range of leisure-sector solutions, visit www.al-ko.co.uk, email ranger@al-ko.co.uk or call 01926 818500.

I wonder if like the Mammut it can be fitted directly to the chassis mounting holes* so be neatly integrated, not like the clamp on offerings from all other suppliers? If so it will not have a clearance to the road issue.

* They introduced the mounting holes as standard on their chassis quite a few years back when they brought the Mummut to the market.
