Caravanning Queensland provides a Free Caravan Safety Check Program to owners of Caravans, Motorhomes and other recreational vehicles.

The free program is an initiative of the official Queensland caravan industry body – Caravan Trade & Industries Association of Queensland (Caravanning Queensland), – organised in conjunction with the Department of Transport and Main Roads.

The event has been designed to increase driver understanding of the challenges they may face whilst travelling on the roads, and to ensure they are better equipped to avoid accidents. The program also features towing equipment and other safety accessory displays, which attendees can inspect and discuss with experts on the day.*

The program is a safe zone for all who attend – no fines or breaches will be issued. It is purely an educational activity with the ultimate aim of ensuring that you are travelling safe and compliant.

*trade displays are not available in all locations
