Vehicle Under Tow Signs Detailed Information
Are you A-Frame towing a Vitara, Terios or any other small vehicle behind your motorhome?
It’s a great idea, and much better than trying to park your Rig outside of Woolies or Coles.
At the time of writing, New South Wales is the only state where a Vehicle Under Tow Sign is a legal requirement for your A-Frame towed vehicle.
And while not yet a requirement by law in the other states of Australia, a Vehicle Under Tow sign, from a road safety point of view, it is a very good idea.
Towing a caboose behind your motorhome is a big responsibility, and those who don’t think it is, haven’t tried it.
Sure you get used to it, but easy just doesn’t seem like the right word.
You have to be mindful of yourself and everyone else on the road too.
And you need to take every precaution you can to make sure the cards are stacked in your favour. That’s what my Vehicle Under Tow sign is all about.
I call it Tow-Smart.
Two A-Frame Vehicle Signs in One
My Tow-Smart sign combines the “Do Not Overtake Turning Vehicle” and “Vehicle Under Tow” messages in the one sign for your convenience.
This keeps it future proof as well as helping to keep you safe by maximising your visibility on the road and enhancing your chance at arriving at your destination safely and without incident.
Helps Keep You Safe From The Road Crazies
You know what some drivers out there are like.
Especially when they see someone like you and your partner, living the dream in a “Home on wheels”.
You know you need to take every precaution, so you can make sure you get from A to B, as safely and as comfortably as possible.
After all, you are on an enjoyable adventure, not a gruelling trek aren’t you?
Whether it’s the law or not, a Vehicle Under Tow sign can be a good idea.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that having a Vehicle sign like mine displayed behind your rig will be a “Force Field” from unforeseen events you encounter on the road.
Your Safety is in Your Hands
What I am saying is that your safety is in your hands. It’s your responsibility, and every little thing you can do to help you and your family arrive safely is vital.
Your wear a safety belt so you can be safe behind the wheel.
Being easily seen by other drivers can be just as important.
In a Rig like yours, sometimes you can’t see other drivers very easily, so you want to make sure they don’t miss seeing you.
There are alternatives for a Vehicle sign for your rig these days, some good, others well… less so.
Is a Tow-Smart Sign Right For You?
The Tow-Smart, Vehicle Under Tow sign is not for everyone.
Though if you love your time on the road with your special someone. You know how those kilometres quickly build up every day and every week.
You know how many clicks you are clocking up, and with two vehicles under your guidance.
You need to take more care than someone just commuting, doing the 9 to 5, you have to take special precautions all along the way.
Tow-Smart is one of these precautions. to help you so you can get there safely.
As I mentioned above, Tow-Smart displays both “Do Not Overtake Turning Vehicle” and “Vehicle Under Tow” messages together, so you can be recognised early, and more easily by other drivers.
It Won’t Damage Your Resale Value
Tow-Smart fits easily, on and off, so you can use it without the hassle of clips or screws that can damage and reduce the value of your towed vehicle.
And it folds up neatly, to glove box size when you aren’t using it, so you can store it easily, without fuss.
Now if you’re worried that a Vehicle sign this simple to use and store may have a downside, you’re right.
The biggest problem I have faced with my Tow-Smart signs though may surprise you.
It is not that it fades under the blazing Australian sunshine, it is extremely fade resistant.
My first Tow-Smart sign, I made for a mate – Mike.
After 2 years of solid use is still going strong. (Read Mike’s Story here)
I have never had a single sign rip or tear while in use (at any speed).
And I have never had one come off and blow away while travelling the highways and byways of our wide land.
By far the most common reason for a Tow-Smart replacement request is they get lost.
I think it’s because they fold up to the size of a woman’s purse when not in use and get left behind.
