Towing can be terrific fun, taking the boat to a new fishing spot, getting your horse to a competition or caravanning to new places.
But to tow safely and with confidence a few basic skills need to be learned.
Towing involves several key competencies and so Tow-Ed have put together a one day course to improve your towing skills for any type of trailer whether it be for boats, horse floats, campers or caravans.
The courses are run by Rob and Lynne Vella who are Licencee's for Tow-Ed on the Central Coast and Newcastle. They have more than 40 years experience of caravanning successfully circumnavigating Australia many times.
