We saw the below video online the other day and it made me think about how many people just load up their boats, throw them on a trailer and off they go. If you do it wrong you can see what could happen.
Since we've had our big event trailer I've had to attend a trailer training course and then take the DVLA test. For me it was really helpful in learning so many things about towing, everything from loading up correctly to what you should and shouldn't do. It also allowed me to perfect the techniques for reversing with a trailer - how many of you could honestly reverse a trailer back down a single track lane?
Over the years we've been fully loaded up and have gone as far as Ibiza and Southern Germany and have (touch wood) had to problems.
If you are not confident or feel you could improve then my advice would be to take a course, even if you don't have to complete the test at the end of it (it depends on your age and when you passed your driving test).
Here are some of our thoughts around what to think about, we're not towing experts but here is a first stab.
