It is sometimes hard for the average caravanner to appreciate
just how hard the wind is blowing, this could go someway to
improving your knowledge of things Beaufort. I suggest printing
and laminating this document as an everyday reminder.

Forth Bridge wind Speeds, and

The Dynamics of Towing

That 'Dynamics of Towing' article makes a good informative read, Rod. I didn't know for instance that you shouldn't have the vans handbrake on when checking the noseweight ............handbrake off and use chocks.
I wonder how many of us do it this way?

I always forget to use handbrake its always off in case it stick on or warp
the wheel locks on though and legs locked down, I can confirm eriba didn't move on the last break of wind speed 100mph..

to sort the toe in and toe out of front axle you had to push the car back and forth with no person in and risk a black eye from the rubber looking glass (someone seemed to smear the rubber with oil). thank goodness for modern equipment.
wonder if this also applies to the nose hitch to settle tyres to weight increase, off to read the article
