What can you do to minimise the risks?
Towing a large caravan requires a lot of skill, especially if you are not used to the additional weight. It’s also essential to be vigilant around coupling the caravan to your car, as it would be disastrous if it became detached on the road. Think about registering with a driving school to learn how to drive while towing, manoeuvring, coupling and uncoupling, reversing and parking.
Structures like mobile homes and caravans are easier to break into than bricks-and-mortar houses, so your contents are at greater risk. Avoid bringing anything of a high value away with you, and leave it out of sight when you’re not in the caravan.
The vehicle itself is at risk of being stolen, so remember to park up in a safe location and secure your caravan well. As with cars, caravans can be fitted with alarms and immobilisers, plus you could attach a tracking device to help you recover it in the event of theft. Wheel locks, hitch locks and even ground anchors make it more difficult for a thief to tow your caravan, and are great deterrents.
Be sure to notify your insurer of any steps you take to reduce the risk of making a claim, as this might trigger a reduction in your premiums.
