Are you heading away for that trip of a lifetime or travelling on holidays with your caravan in tow? If so just take a moment to reflect on your plans to travel on the long awaited holiday destination.
We often get so tied up with what we need to pack, what we need to take and re-directing the mail that we leave little time for the essentials.
We have put together a checklist for those people who tow caravans, which we hope will be of use in ensuring that preliminary and essential checks can be conducted before travel.
In our “ Towing Safely ” course we cover the items in this checklist as well as the following:
- · Coupling & uncoupling
- · Reversing into tight spots
- · Loading & securing load
- · Jacking & changing wheels
- · Emergency Repairs.
Our “ Towing Safely ” course is done on a 1:1 basis and are Nationally Recognised. As such there are elements that we must cover, please do not hesitate to let our trainer know the areas that most interest you and the areas you wish to concentrate on. He will be happy to assist in those areas so that you get the ultimate benefit from the course.
