Special Towing Information

Also see Safety Information section lower down.

Towing Mirrors - You will require mirrors. A basic set of towing mirrors can be supplied for an extra fee of $10.00 per hire. However, they may or may not suit your particular vehicle. If unsure please provide your own mirrors.

Tow vehicle - Your vehicle must be fit for purpose and comply with the relevant load limits and towing capacities of your specific vehicle. To Tow this van we recommend your vehicle have a towing capacity of at least 2500 kg with tow bar able to match this. Compliance with towing loads and capacity is the hirer's responsibility. If unsure consult a towing specialist, your vehicle manufacturer or automotive specialist in this field like a tow bar supplier and installer.

To see if the hitch height of your vehicle is compatible with the van, the owners will be happy to do a "test" hitch up before a hire term provided the owner and or van is available for this test fit. This should be done at least one or two weeks before hire in case you need to make any changes to your vehicle. Please discuss with owner if interested. Turning up on the day only to find out your vehicle is NOT compatible with the caravan will ruin your holiday and the owner will NOT release the van if your vehicle is NOT suitable.

Brake Controller: For a fee of $50.00 per hire we can supply a brake controller
fitted to the van which will require the hirer to download a free App onto their smart phone.
Make sure your mobile is charged and up to date with access to the network. During towing the phone must be used ONLY as allowed by legislation! Usually this means in a cradle as per mobile phone usage laws whilst driving.

We will supply you with an information package and checklist of important points prior to your taking delivery of the van and any questions or concerns by yourselves or us will be addressed then. We encourage a pre hire test fit of your vehicle with the van. Please discuss this with owners Before hand.

Some important things to consider are:
SPEED LIMITS: Speed limits are to be complied with at all times and the maximum speed for a towed trailer is 100 kilometres per hour even when travelling on a road with a limit of 110 km per hour.
DRIVING SKILLS: You will need to pay more attention to following distance, braking distance, turning circles as towed vans often cut the corner more than the path of your car going around the same corner, side and rear vision is reduced so towing mirrors will be required.
TRAVEL ROUTE AND TIME: often traffic leaving Perth is very busy on holiday periods and people tend to be impatient, especially with caravans. It is better to review your travel route beforehand so you know when to turn off. This helps you get in the correct turning lanes in good time. Because you are slower and heavier it is best to allow more time to arrive. DO NOT rush your journey.
OtTHER ROAD USERS: Many drivers do not appreciate your load when towing and so they can be impatient and follow too closely which can be distracting. They will often cut you off or cut in and this is challenging at best of times. Even harder to stop or slow down when you weigh an extra two tonnes or more!! You will need more patience when towing.
REVERSING: This one is challenging especially for the inexperienced. If you are unsure of your reversing skills, especially in a tight and busy place like a caravan park we suggest you do a towing course. It is an investment into your own skillset.
The Hirer is responsible to ensure their vehicle is compliant with legal load limits in accordance with governing laws and regulations. Make sure your vehicle and tow bar and wiring harness is in good condition and fit for purpose. IF you arrive on the day to pick up the van and it is NOT compatible we will NOT release the caravan.

Towing Capacity Safety:
Check what your vehicles maximum towing capacity is as well as the maximum download your tow ball can receive.
For safety reason we suggest your vehicle have a towing capacity of 2500kg and a tow ball down load capacity of 200kg. Less than these figures starts to make your margin for safety very small.
This Caravan has a Ball Weight of 144 kg unloaded, and an ATM of 2309 kg. The ATM is the maximum load of the caravan with payload and must NOT be exceeded. If you are not sure of your vehicle capacity consult your vehicle manual or manufacturer or towing specialist. As above, consider doing a test hitch up beforehand.

Additional Information
