Are you towing your caravan illegally?
The bottom line is most insurers will have an exclusion for an accident where incorrect loads are being towed, this applies equally to commercial enterprises and anyone towing a vehicle.
- Understand your vehicles towing capacity and understand the weight of your fully loaded caravan
- Is the ball weight on the van too high, is the overall weight of the van and the loaded vehicle too high? If you are taking full water tanks, are you considering the weight of the water?
- Consider going to a public weighbridge to ensure that you are within limits. This will not only help you avoid an accident but will also assist an assessment if an accident occurs.
