Handy Hints for years of trouble free towing.

  • Know what weights you are towing, specifically your ball weight and ATM. The best way to determine this is to contact your Hayman Reese Distributor or visit your local public weighbridge.
  • Ensure your vehicle and towbar are legally compatible for your towing application. Check vehicle owners manual and towbar compliance label for specific ratings.
  • Make sure your trailer bearings, tyres and brakes are in good working order and regularly inspect these.
  • Ensure that you have the correct brake control unit for your combination.
  • Fit a sway control unit for added stability and peace of mind.
  • Use towing mirrors that extend beyond the width of your trailer. Not only are they mandatory, it allows you to see the traffic behind, as well as the trailer wheels and edge of the road.
  • Towing requires additional concentration to normal driving, be sure to have regular rest stops.
  • Know how to setup, adjust and fine tune your WDS. If you are ever unsure seek advice from a Hayman Reese towing expert.
