Should you do a learn to tow course? For some, it is true, a towing course may not be absolutely essential to successfully tow, but for those with little experience, or just a bit nervous about the prospect of towing something weighing 3500kg behind their LandCruiser, it can be money well spent. It certainly helps you to understand how to tow more safely. In the big picture, it’s a relatively small cost for some peace of mind before you set of on ‘the big one’. As Graham White explained, “Buying a caravan is not the cheapest thing you’ll ever buy, it’s the things you put in it that cost!” A learn to tow course will not teach you everything you need to know, but it will provide you with the basics and highlight areas where you need to practise or do more research. Personally, it provided me with some much-needed skills and important information as well as some ‘inside knowledge’ normally gained over years of trial and error out on the road. It also gave me a greater respect and admiration for the owners of the 350,000-odd registered caravans and camper trailers in Australia and the confidence and enthusiasm to get out there amongst them… Chris Fincham
