How do I learn to tow a caravan?

Firstly, ensure you can tow legally. You can drive a vehicle up to 3,500kg and tow a caravan/trailer up to 3500kg behind it. Always follow government guidelines - https://www.gov.uk/towing-with-car.

There are many things to learn when towing a caravan including:

  • Opposite lock when reversing

  • Hitching up

  • How to control snaking

  • Road positioning

  • Speed limits

  • Nose weights... and more!

Be patient.

Practice - gain experience.

Ask for help. It's about growing your confidence. If in doubt, book yourself a towing lesson. Trips away with your caravan shouldn't be stressful before you even get there!
