And to get those things to our getaway destination, safety is essential.
General Motors provided this handy towing info-graphic. These are really great tips you can use before you head out.
The best advice I can give is to simply go slow. Lower speeds help you better command the truck and trailer when weight is pushing from behind. If you have a trailer brake controller, that will help too.
According to my friend from a Louisville towing company, one has to think of towing as both art and etiquette – you need more room than normal when driving so make the adjustments with the wheel accordingly. Take your time and remember: never pull into an area you cannot get out of.
From novice to experienced hauler, this GM info-graphic is a tremendous reference.
Happy towing and happy travels!
