OUR GUIDE TO REVERSING WHILST TOWING

 

Start with your vehicle and trailer straight. Make sure you have enough room for the manoeuvre. Always keep the angle of the trailer shallow relative to the towing vehicle.

The more the trailer starts to appear in one mirror, the more you should turn the opposite direction.

For reversing round corners you want to move very slowly, use your mirrors to see when the trailer starts to turn and ensure you begin straightening as soon as it does so that you do not jack-knife and risk damaging either the trailer or your vehicle.

If you get in an awkward position such as the trailer bumping into a curb, the best thing to do is pull forward.

In a standard UK right-hand drive vehicle, reversing to the right is easier than to the left because you do not need to look across the passenger seat so whenever you can, reverse to the right.
