Ev­ery­thing you need to know about your car­a­van’s cou­pler

Most car­a­vans built be­fore or dur­ing 2009 have a cast-iron cou­pling head, but some of the newer ones are fit­ted with a steel head that sim­ply slips over the tow bar. Steel couplings need lit­tle main­te­nance, but a bit of Q20 lu­bri­cant on the spring un­der­neath is gen­er­ally a good idea. Cast-iron cou­pling heads re­quire more at­ten­tion, be­cause they have a shaft that slides un­der­neath the head to se­cure it to the ball of your ve­hi­cle’s tow bar.
