What do I have to check before I go on a trip with a caravan?
Before you go on a trip with a caravan, it is advisable to check the caravan on several points. Do not wait until the very last moment, as that will leave you little time to fix any possible defects. Do this at least a week before you leave. The most important points you have to check are:
- Tyres of the car and caravan
- Coupling on the drawbar
- Exterior mirrors
- Lights of the car and caravan
- Fastening cables
- Nose weight
- Load weight
- Weight distribution
- Key detachable towbar
