Stable driving

Purchasing a stabiliser is a great product for increasing the stability of your car and trailer. It can be installed on the drawbar of your trailer and limits swinging motions.

Nose weight

Nose weight is the vertical load imposed by the trailer onto the towball. The maximum load is specified by the vehicle manufacture for safety reasons. We are happy to explain what these are and how to meet them.

Checking before leaving

Is your tyre pressure correct? Is the coupling on your trailer and your towbar not showing wear and tear? Is the breakaway cable still sound? Are your exterior mirrors properly adjusted? And do all the lights work? It is necessary to perform these checks before you drive off.

Loading a Caravan

Loaded caravan

If you are going on holiday, manage your luggage as carefully as possible. All of the additional weight you load in your caravan should be distributed in a balanced manner in order to prevent dangerous situations.
