Get set­tled

Go! Camp & Drive - - CARAVAN TEST -

Af­ter un­hitch­ing the car­a­van, first crank down the cor­ner stead­ies. If you don’t – specif­i­cally the two scis­sor stead­ies on the two back cor­ners – the Hi-Rider’s nose will lift when you get in. Un­like most other car­a­vans, the cor­ner stead­ies are di­ag­o­nally un­der the hull, but they work eas­ily with the crank-han­dle. In ad­di­tion, four cor­ner stead­ies are al­most su­per­flu­ous for a car­a­van this size, but at least it’s as sturdy as a house with a proper foun­da­tion.

Re­mem­ber, the Hi-Rider doesn’t have brakes, which means if you want to set up on a slope, you’ll need to place a brick be­hind the wheel un­til you’ve se­cured the cor­ner stead­ies. >
