CHAPTER 3: Trip Planning and Preparation

ROAD HANDLING

You need to be extra careful when you’re driving with a cumbersome load like a boat and trailer.

For one thing, the load will make your vehicle much less responsive, so reduce your speed and give vehicles in front of you additional room. This will give you more time to maneuver and react if you need to.

Take wide turns

Always remember, you have another vehicle attached behind you. That means you need to take corners at slower speeds and at wider angles to make sure your trailer can get around safely.

SLOW DOWN AND MAKE SAFE WIDE TURNS.
