Driving with a trailer

- You should allow for considerably more stopping distance when towing a trailer.

Avoid sudden braking because it may result in skidding or jackknifing and loss of control.

- Avoid abrupt starts and sudden accelerations.

If your vehicle has a manual transmission, always start out in first gear and release the clutch at moderate engine revolution.

- Avoid uneven steering, sharp turns and rapid lane changes.

- Slow down before turning. Make a longer than normal turning radius because the trailer wheels will be closer than the vehicle wheels to the inside of the turn. In a tight turn, the trailer could hit your vehicle.

- Crosswinds will adversely affect the handling of your vehicle and trailer, causing sway. Crosswinds can be due to weather conditions or the passing of large trucks or buses. If swaying occurs, firmly grip the steering wheel and slow down immediately but gradually.

- When passing other vehicles, considerable distance is required because of the added weight and length caused by attaching the trailer to your vehicle.

1) Left turn

1) Left turn
2) Right turn

- Backing up with a trailer is difficult and takes practice. When backing up with a trailer, never accelerate or steer rapidly.

When turning back, grip the bottom of the steering wheel with one hand and turn it to the left for a left turn, and turn it to the right for a right turn.

- If the ABS warning light illuminates while the vehicle is in motion, stop towing the trailer and have repairs performed immediately by the nearest SUBARU dealer.
