If you are towing a trailer or caravan it is really important that you take extra care as there are a lot of additional factors you need to take into account.
When towing a trailer you should always think “Safety first”!!
In general, car and van accidents that involve a trailer have far greater consequences than those where no trailer is involved. The main reason for this is the additional size and weight that the trailer adds to your vehicle along with the fact it is only attached by a very small point.
Making sure that the trailer you are planning on pulling is within the towing capacity of you car is extremely important. The towing capacity and weight vary from car to car and between different models so please make sure you find the exact towing capacity for your car and that you double check this in your car’s handbook.
