    Leave in good time to arrive in good time. Check your caravan loading for weight distribution and the tow bar weight limit. I use a a gauge. Once you have done this you know what works. Drive wider and slower on roundabouts – watch out for those precious tyres! Fill up with fuel before you hitch up. Keep to the middle of your carriageway when you see large vehicles coming the other way! Don’t be surprised about your increased fuel consumption when towing. Drive gently, look ahead, check your mirrors and always be courteous. Use maps – not sat nav. Enjoy the journey.

    Hi, we are picking our first caravan up this weekend, and have a holiday booked for Easter. We are very excited but also a little apprehensive! Any tips on towing, living the lifestyle, site recommendations etc gratefully received. P.S We have a 4 berth Avondale Osprey, 2 kids, live in Warwickshire- and have fitted Tyron bands for added safety.
