Are you towing your caravan safely?

MidCoast Council

Whether you own a caravan or want to buy one, attend a free workshop in March and learn about safe loading and towing.

Overloading a caravan or distributing weight incorrectly can lead to tragic accidents and affect your insurance cover.

MidCoast Council with the support of Transport for NSW will be sponsoring free workshops on safe caravan towing where you can get expert help.

These interactive two-hour workshops will provide information and demonstrations to support the safe loading and towing of caravans and trailers.

‘It’s so important to know the rules about loading and weighing your caravan,” said Council’s Road Safety Officer, Chris Dimarco.

“These workshops will help you understand whether your vehicle is suitable for your caravan, the rules for putting bicycles on the back of the van, and the meaning of unusual terms like ‘GCM’.

“You’ll also be able to talk to the experts and ask questions.”

These free workshops will be held at the following locations:

Gloucester: Saturday 18 March at 8.30am.

Taree: Saturday 18 March at 1pm

Forster: Thursday 23 March at 8.30am

Hawks Nest: Thursday 23 March at 1pm
