Default Flotation system for Static Caravans

I posted about these a few years ago. Is anyone using them? Has anyone benefited from having them?

Out of interest how do these work if the van is chained down. Presumably the van floats a bit but if it's so deep then the chains will be at their extents and then you'll get water ingress?

Not sure, but I think if a flotation device is fitted it comes with it's own chains to stop the van floating off and away. Chains alone would be fitted in extremely windy areas to stop the van blowing over.

Hi, if you click on the link there's a drop down menu where there's more details of how these varying designs work

I see the cantilever system rises up by 12 ft from original position. To be fair I'd hope that would cover any flooding that may occur. I'm lucky, our site is on a hill on top of a hill so no risk of flooding but I can definitely see these saving a lot of tears for some, especially recently
