When you get a tow bar for your vehicle, it’s important to think about the ways that changes the space your vehicle takes up. It’s easy to fall into the habits and muscle memory that you’ve developed for reversing and parallel parking, and that can be disastrous when you have that little bit of extra length which can damage someone else’s vehicle when back into them. So when you get a tow bar and set it up, it’s a good idea to also get a reversing camera kit. That way, you won’t have to rely on muscle memory or mirrors that can distort distances.
A rear vision camera is a great purchase to go with a tow bar.
It’s not just that a reversing camera is good for helping you stay safe and avoid accidents with the tow bar alone. It’s also that if you’re getting a tow bar, you’re probably thinking about towing something in the near future. And if you’re towing a trailer, boat or caravan behind you, that’s going to completely block your visibility. Fortunately, a camera is the solution for that as well.
When you get a trailer, think about reversing and visibility, and get a high quality rear vision system for your trailer as well. Safety Dave offers a range of camera kits for different vehicles and different kinds of trailers, including a dual-screen display that lets you see both what’s happening behind your vehicle and what’s happening behind the trailer.
When you start towing a trailer, there’s a lot to get used to. So having a camera and a monitor is a great idea to make sure that you won’t cause serious damage with a careless slip of the mind. It will also make it that much easier to manoeuvre and reverse your vehicle and trailer – having two objects connected by a pivot makes for a much more complex equation!
In addition to the convenience while driving and reversing, installing a tow bar is the perfect time to install that reversing camera you always meant to but never got around to. It’s easy to put things off, but trust me – in the long run it will be well worth it, and you’ll be able to drive with greater peace of mind and less stress.
