Towing a Caravan, Camper Trailer or a 5th Wheeler requires skills and knowledge of not only the way your car handles when towing but also the conditions and emergency situations that can happen.
There are courses available for all levels of experience. If you have not towed before then we strongly recommend taking a beginners course. You may have experience towing a trailer but if you have upgraded to a Caravan then how differant is that, especially as a 60 meter road train whips past doing 100km an hour and the pull experienced by the Caravan, take a refresher course. Towing a 5th wheeler? It is a unique experience and these can be bigger rigs than you have experienced before, learn how to tow them.
