The owner of this mature windup camper can now drive into a caravan park, get out the chairs and wine, and simply click the up button on the remote control.
No more digging the wind handle out of the front boot of the caravan and cranking the roof up. This camper now has the Autowind system retrofitted to ease the raising and lowering of the caravan roof.
Autowind is a remote controlled winch package that replaces the manual winch usually associated with the windup camper design. The electric winch is powered by a battery, but can still be activated manually, if required.
When setting up the system, the upper and lower limits of the winch travel can be set and stored in the winch the controller. This means that a single key press will raise the roof to a preset height.
The Autowind electric winch links into the existing lift system by simply bolting to the fish plate. The fish plate holds the four corner wires that help raise and lower the roof. No other parts of the original lift system are affected.
If you have an injury or dread winding up you camper on a touring holiday, then the Autowind system may help you keep your caravan for many more trips.
