TIGHT U-TURNS

Camper Trailer Australia - - BUSH MECHANICS -

It’s re­ally hard to hook a U-turn on a tight track with a camper trailer in tow, but there are a few lit­tle tricks of the trade that can re­ally help. The first one be­ing to ac­ti­vate your trailer’s brakes in­de­pen­dently to your ve­hi­cle’s as you re­verse. The idea is the trailer will jack­knife much faster than nor­mal, which can ac­tu­ally be use­ful in some sce­nar­ios. The next tip is to mark a spot on the draw­bar or stone-guard to in­di­cate when and where the camper is go­ing to im­pact with your ve­hi­cle on tight turns. It saves you a heck of a lot of guess work in the long run! One more tip: the quick­est way to straighten a car and camper up af­ter a tight turn isn’t to sim­ply drive straight. In­stead, ex­ag­ger­at­ing the turn both ways be­fore end­ing up straight should get the job done a tad quicker... give it a go!
