First time caravan owners might not be aware of the dangers, which include
- decreased acceleration
- braking performance
- reduced vehicle control and manoeuvrability
- increased fuel consumption.
These effects become more pronounced on your vehicle as trailer size and the mass of the load increase. Overloading the caravan also has the potential to cause damage to the caravan chassis and bodywork and can cause severe loading balance problems.
All this extra weight on the towball can stress the coupling and the towbar, while also overloading the towing vehicle’s rear suspension and lightening the load on the steering axle, potentionally causing a front end float.
