Safety Tips

  • Keep in mind the weight of all of the gear you pack and water you bring; a 48 gallon tank of fresh water weighs around 400 pounds!
  • When towing a small utility trailer such as a U-Haul, be sure to keep the weight in the front of the trailer rather than the back to avoid excessive trailer sway and loss of control
  • Towing mirrors cannot extend further than 8 inches beyond the width of the trailer
  • Never exceed your vehicle's recommended Towing Capacity and GVWR, Gross Vehicle Weight Rating, found in your owners manual
  • Know your local and or destination's towing laws
