Daily Master Class Schedule
10.00am: Back to Basics
Jeff Palmer from Getabout / Tow-Ed, will be presenting on why we need to focus on the “simple things” whilst driving and especially towing. The simple things are quite often the most important, particularly when it comes to road safety and staying on the road.
10.30am: Know Your Weights
In this interactive session Dave Lewis covers all aspects of Caravan and Vehicle weight compliance. Watch as a caravan is weighed, demonstrating how loading it correctly or incorrectly affects the stability and overall safety of the entire rig.
11.00am: Set up to Tow
In this session Gary Gardiner discusses the importance of ensuring your towing equipment set up correctly. Gary examines tow ball weight and the impact this weight has on the axle loads of the tow vehicle, and the advantages of a correctly set up Weight Distribution Hitch.
12:00noon: Off-Road Customer Drive Experience
If you are new to towing and are unsure what it might be like to pull a trailer off road, why not go for a drive on our “Off-Road Track”. This simple track has been built to simulate some of the conditions and driving surfaces you may encounter while out touring off-road. Two different off-road combinations will be available to ride in around the track and visitors are encouraged to ask the drivers any questions relating to different off-road driving techniques.
