Before you drive away with your new caravan, Jawa will conduct a two-hour handover.
It includes an in-depth walkthrough of every aspect of the van, including set-up, pack-down, and an explanation of how everything works.
If you are on the road and in need of some guidance, we generally advise contacting us on the landline.
There is also a work mobile (0428 973 367), however we mostly use this for when we are at shows.
In addition, we have an owners’ group on Facebook where people can write on at any time and ask for assistance or advice. We will endeavour to get back to them when we can.
