Frankia holiday class detachable steering wheel key


Recommended Posts

Quickly-detachable steering wheels are normally attached to a ‘boss' fitted to a vehicle’s steering column, with a simple mechanism that allows the wheel to be rapidly disconnected from the boss. Nowadays they are primarily marketed for competition cars and there are examples here




I remember removable steering wheels being sold at outdoor leisure shows for retro-fitting to motorhomes. They were quite popular in the late-1900s and early-2000s as a security measure and to facilitate the driver’s seat being rotated, and were fairly easy to reto-fit to Ducatos in those days when a driver airbag was not integrated into the steering wheel.


This 2014 forum thread mentioned removable steering wheels with keys fitted to Auto-Trail motorhomes.




I think (from wading through your earlier postings) that you may have obtained the Frankia very recently, and I suspect that your Frankia did not start life with a removable steering wheel and was retro-fitted with the wheel by a previous owner. If that were the case, then trying to find a key for the wheel would need to begin by identifying the wheel’s manufacturer (and there were plenty of these in the early-2000s).


If you believe that the wheel would have been fitted by Frankia when your motorhome was built, you might try asking about this on the Frankia Motorhomes UK Facebook group.

Hi again, forgot to ask, does anyone know where l can go to get a replacement key for my detachable steering wheel on my Frankia.



I have a Tazio removable steering wheel on my 2004/5 Benimar and it has a radial RPT Key. Just a quick google search brought up this lot who may be able to help you if your key is a radial type.
