Driving a motorcaravan
One’s driving position in a motorcaravan is much higher up than in an ordinary car which means you have better visibility and are able to spot potential dangers on the road.
Motorcaravans are homes on wheels and not sportscars. It is true that the latest models are slightly lighter to manage, but one should never forget that a motorcaravan takes longer to speed up and slow down.
You should approach a bend in the road quite gently because a motorcaravan’s centre of gravity is higher up than a car’s.
Never forget the overall dimension of your vehicle. And here is a useful tip: have the length, width and height displayed visibly in your cab.
And, as in all vehicles, if you are driving with children on board they must be seated and belted into their child carseats.
