A FEW BASIC LOGICAL TIPS FOR SAFE AND COMFORTABLE TOWING
- The addition of a trailer to your vehicle lengthens the total wheelbase, therefore when turning it is necessary to widen the turning circle to avoid hitting kerbs.
- Remember that the addition of a trailer and its load will increase your stopping distance, so leave more room for braking.
- Do not exceed the maximum towing weight for the tow vehicle.
- Remember when reversing to steer the opposite way to the direction in which you require the trailer to travel.
This technique requires a lot of practice to become competent.
