Before towing your camper you must first make sure that your vehicle is in good shape (follow your vehicle’s recommended maintenance schedule). There are also a few other things to look at.

Make sure that your shocks and tires are in good shape. Also, make sure that your current tires have good tread, and that you have a spare tire. Make sure that you have the right hitch for your vehicle (there are 4 different types of hitches). Wire your camper’s system into your towing vehicle’s system (this will make your brake lights show on your towing device). Make sure that you are not towing too much weight. Consider installing sway bars. Also, consider clip-on mirrors (to enlarge your view).

You should still try and drive more cautiously in and out of Lafayette, IN than you normally would (without your camper).
