Towing Changes Vehicle Handling

Driving with a heavy load in tow changes the handling of your vehicle. Sudden movements can cause your load to sway and makes it difficult to control the vehicle. Hauling a heavy load also increases your braking distance. However, careful preparation can help reduce some of these effects.

One of the most important considerations is making certain that the tires on your trailer and your vehicle are properly inflated. Many people think that you need to put a large amount of air into the tires, but you should never exceed the maximum recommended for your vehicle. Another tip is to use extended side mirrors to increase visibility. Practice driving with a trailer before you leave for your trip.
