Grey nomad, Greg O’Brien, gives his tips on how to safely overtake a caravan when you’re towing a van yourself
We are often faced with overtaking another van for one reason or another.
But an overtake with a van on the back should not be taken lightly and there are a number of things that we need to think about, particularly if the vehicle we wish to overtake is another van or a road train.
Overtaking with a van on the back should not be a large concern for a competent driver, but we still need to exercise a cautious approach to doing so, and the manoeuvre can be done without being a hair-raising experience to all concerned. Know your rig and its performance with the van attached and stay within its performance parameters and stay safe out there.
