take into account.

These include:

  • the towing capacity of your vehicle;
  • the type of tow bar you should fit to your vehicle and the maximum load capacity of the coupling;
  • the trailer when laden and coupled to the vehicle shall not exceed any of the tow vehicle
    maximum ratings;
  • the ATM must be specified on the trailer’s Vehicle (VIN) Plate;
  • the type of trailer you are towing and whether it complies with all the regulations governing trailers in Australia;
  • the type of equipment you may need to fit to increase the trailer’s stability when being towed;
  • whether your trailer is correctly loaded;
  • the ways in which towing can affect your driving;
  • the safety checks you should make prior to and during your trip; and
  • the type of insurance most suitable for your caravan or trailer.
