Article by Christian Andrei, on May 30, 2012

Caravan owners who are planning to set out to the open roads in the UK would benefit from reading a safe caravanning guide developed by Chevrolet. More people are travelling during holidays within the country instead of going abroad or somewhere else in the continent. In the UK, there are about half a million leisure towing fans who will surely want to take advantage of the long June bank holiday weekend.

Chevrolet made this guide in partnership with several of the industry's top caravanning organisations on caravan safety and enjoyment. Chevrolet UK Managing Director Mark Terry said that the company believes that the journey, and not only the destination, should be fun. He added that finding the correct tow car and being safe will matter much in guaranteeing that enjoying nature will be relaxed and fun and also legal and safe.
