free+towing+bookIt’s not every day you can get something free from Uncle Sam. Seems like along about mid-April, Unc’s hand is out to many folks across the land. But here’s a turn, in this case, the U.S. Government wants RVers (and other folks that tow) to be safe. So they’ve got a free e-book that covers the basics.

Called Towing a Trailer – Being Equipped for Safety, this 26-page full-color presentation covers stuff like, how to select a tow vehicle (and what to do if you already have one). Connecting your trailer up to the tow rig. Tire safety. Properly loading and distributing weight. Getting a grasp on the legal aspects. A pre-departure safety checklist. More safety tips, and information on maintenance.

You can download this booklet by pointing your browser to www.nhtsa.dot.gov/Cars/problems/Equipment/towing/Towing.pdf
