SUNSHINE Coast-based caravan manufacturer Zone RV has
produced a new video on safe towing.
"It's paramount that we are sending our customers out the gate with the
confidence to tow safely," company co-founder and sales manager Matt Johns
told Caravanning News.
"There have been national concerns growing about caravanners being
misinformed and not knowing their load weights or legal tow limits, with
many on the road towing illegally."
The Queensland company's 11-minute video contains helpful information for caravanners wanting
to know how best to prepare their rigs for the road.
More than 800 people have already viewed the footage on
Mr Johns said it would help educate caravanners on how to prevent
unnecessary swaying – or worst still, accidents.
"We created this video to help show them what to look for when buying a
caravan, how to tow safely and how to best prepare their tow vehicle for
optimal performance," he explained.
"It was produced with the expert help of Glen Hadden at Roo Systems.
"Caravan manufacturers need to lead by example, so this is what we set out
to do in creating the video."
Mr Johns said it was a "general overview" of towing safety.
"So please keep in mind there are many more ways to enhance your caravan,
rig and skills to ensure you're towing as safe as possible," he added.
