Congratulations – you’ve decided to take the plunge and buy your first Caravan?
You may not need to take a test to able to tow (if you do need to take a test please click here) but have you towed anything this big before?
Towing a caravan for the first time can be daunting –
- What do I need to do before I tow?
- How much room do I need?
- How will other drivers respond to me?
- What will it feel like to pull the weight?
These are just a few of the concerns raised by drivers who are new to towing.
Many drivers feel a great sense of trepidation when they turn up to collect their brand new caravan and realise ‘I’ve got to get this home in one piece’ not to mention the expectation placed on you the first time you pull into a caravan park and need to reverse it onto your pitch…
By taking an Introduction to Towing Course with us we will address many of these common concerns and equip you with the skills and confidence you require to get you on the road safely.
Details of our Caravan Towing courses are as follows;
Introduction to Towing;
Perfect for anyone who has B&E but little towing experience or has never towed before.
Your course will be conducted on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis and is completed using your vehicle along with our caravan*.
The course starts with vehicle and caravan safety checks. Once complete you will move onto coupling and uncoupling the caravan.
