Reversing a caravan is a prospect that fills many towcar drivers with dread, with so many potential pitfalls, from jack-knifing to hitting hidden objects.
With this in mind, a major insurance broker has offered some very helpful tips for reversing your caravan like a pro.
Towergate Insurance has explained that the caravan hitch works as a pivot in the reversing manoeuvre, and understanding how this affects the movement of your tourer is key to the whole process.
The insurance provider has also suggested that caravan owners look into purchasing some added gadgets to help with the reversing process, such as extra-wide towing mirrors and reversing cameras.
Of course, the most helpful piece of kit you can have is a patient and co-operative co-driver, who can get out and give directions.
No matter what technique to employ, the most important thing to remember is to keep calm and take your time, the company adds.
