Queensland Road Safety Week

Videos an aid to travelling confidently
and safely while caravanning

Road safety Have your say

Caravanning Queensland is marking the state's Road Safety Week with a series of towing and road safety awareness videos.

They are designed to educate and inform all caravan and RV owners on how to stay on the road safely while touring the Sunshine State.

Caravanning Queensland chief executive Jason Plant said the aim was to educate new and experienced RV owners on how they can tow more confidently and safely.

"Caravanning Queensland is a proud supporter of Queensland Road Safety Week and what better way to recognise this important initiative than by educating caravan and RV owners on important aspects of towing and road safety," he explained.

There are more than 190,000 recreational vehicles registered in Queensland, with caravan sales soaring since restrictions on international travel were introduced.

Queensland Minister for Transport and Main Roads Mark Bailey said his government was "very pleased" to be working with Caravanning Queensland as part of the safety week.

"We have had a fantastic relationship over the last five years, supporting Caravanning Queensland doing its safety checks and getting information out to people that have got caravans and RVs," he said.

"We want to see all RV owners driving around safely, knowing how to do weight distribution, how to prepare and do maintenance."

Two new videos will be posted to Caravanning Queensland's Facebook page daily between August 24 and 28, with all videos uploaded to

They will cover topics such as caravan suspension and couplings, weight distribution, towing courses, caravan maintenance, wheel bearings, tyres, braking systems and hooking up your caravan.

Each video features industry experts who have a passion for all things towing and caravanning.
