Road safety video series for caravanners

Important advice for owners of caravans and RVs during Road Safety Week.

Caravan and recreational vehicle (RV) owners can access a series of videos from Caravanning Queensland to help make their next trip safer.

In conjunction with the Queensland Government and as part of Road Safety Week, the videos on towing and road safety offer tips and information for owners of caravans and RVs.

Two new videos will be posted to Caravanning Queensland’s Facebook page from 24–28 August, with all videos available at the Caravanning Queensland website. 

Caravanning Queensland CEO Jason Plant said the aim of the video series was to educate new and experienced RV owners on how they could tow more confidently and safely while touring Queensland.

“With no international travel for the immediate future, more Queenslanders are turning to caravans and recreational vehicles as their first-choice holiday option,” Mr Plant said.

“We are seeing more caravanners new to the lifestyle, hitting the road for the very first time.  Through programs like these, people can pick up important tips on how to get to their destination safely and incident-free.”

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Queensland Government was very pleased to be working with Caravanning Queensland as part of Queensland Road Safety Week.

“We have had a fantastic relationship over the last five years, supporting Caravanning Queensland doing their safety checks and getting information out to people that have got caravans and RVs” Mr Bailey said.

“We want to see all RV owners driving around safely, knowing how to do weight distribution, how to prepare and do maintenance and we love working with Caravanning Queensland to get better outcomes.”

The series of videos will cover topics such as caravan suspension and couplings; weight distribution; towing courses; caravan maintenance; wheel bearings; tyres; braking systems; and hooking up your caravan.
