Think! Road Safety RV

Caravan and Camping SA is committed to keeping you safe on the road during your RV road trips.

The Think! Road Safety RV initiative has been designed to provide you with educational resources and training to help you stay safe when travelling with your RV. It’s all about boosting your confidence to go embark on your next outdoor adventure!

There’s nothing more exciting than planning a RV road trip. A well-executed RV holiday comes down to getting the nuts and bolts right. Towing an RV comes with increased responsibility, and you are a critical member in the logistical team.  Wrapping your head around legal requirements, vehicle dimensions, towing parts, weights, braking systems, tyres, and the plethora of towing jargon can first feel overwhelming.  

Towing an RV requires knowledge about the loaded mass of your trailer, caravan sway and how to safely load your trailer. Weight limits can’t be exceeded, and you need knowledge of weight distribution hitches and more.  Whether it’s your first-time towing or you’re a seasoned RV tower, your first step is to soak up the educational resources available to you here.
