Course Outline

Checking a boat trailer

Drive cautiously.

  • Drive at moderate speeds and avoid sudden maneuvers.
  • On long trips, pull over every hour or so to check the towing vehicle, trailer, tires, trailer coupling, and gear in the vessel.

Allow for the added length and weight of the trailer.

  • Make wider turns at corners and curves.
  • Allow extra time and distance for stopping and for passing other vehicles. Steer wider on corners to clear curbs.
