When you set out on the open road for family vacation or to experience the solitude of the forest nothing can ruin your enthusiasm, except for a breakdown when towing your camper. Adequate preparation for your vehicle to tow your camper is key to avoiding break downs and ensure proper maintenance of your vehicle during this challenge. Towing a large load can put some strain on your vehicle, but this can be lessened with adequate preparation to tow a camper.

Getting Ready to Tow a Camper

Brakes, tires and the transmission are the most basic parts that should be inspected and repaired, if necessary, prior to towing a camper. If you don't have a trailer hitch, this is also an important concept to follow through on. Special trailering equipment, like a gooseneck hitch of fifth-wheel inset, may also be required to properly tow your camper depending on the size.

Additional Trailering Equipment Essential to Towing a Camper

Extra equipment that can make it easier to tow your camper would include items like sway controls and extended mirrors. These items are mainly for convenient and enhance your camper towing experience. However, in certain situations, trailer sway controls may also improve the safety of your hauling experience.
