AL-KO ESC or Electronic Stability Control is a breakthrough in Caravan Towing Safety.
Caravan instability or sway is caused from a range of different circumstances, such as having to take evasive manoeuvres to miss a vehicle or animal that has suddenly appeared on the road, high winds and difficult driving conditions or wind buffeting from large vehicles.
If you have ever been in a situation where the Caravan has been subject to these conditions and you feel the caravan swaying back and forth you will know it is not a pleasant experience. Sway can ultimately end in loss of control of the tow vehicle and caravan and has often put people off caravanning altogether as they lose their confidence in towing.
AL-KO ESC gives assurance and confidence to drivers that even in the most difficult of driving scenarios your caravan is constantly being monitored and controlled providing an unparrelleled level of safety during the journey.
How it works
The AL-KO ESC system is comprised of an electronic module that sits above the axle/s and continuously monitors lateral movement of the caravan. These movements are evaluated and if the caravan is subject to 2 lateral movements of more than 0.4G Force or 4 smaller movements of 0.2G the ESC is applied. The ESC module carries out a complex number of algorithms based on the lateral force, weight of the caravan, length of the caravan and tyre size to determine how much braking is applied. All this is carried out before you even have time to act, the ESC has steadied your caravan and you are towing safely and comfortably.
AL-KO ESC can be fitted to most Caravans on the Australian Market running electric brakes. If your caravan is not compatible the caravan can be modified at Complete RV Services to except ESC.
Aeroplus is an easy and universally fitting, lightweight, roof-mounted air deflector.
It drives the flow of air smoothly over the top of your caravan – reducing drag, increasing towing stability and increasing fuel economy.
Aeroplus has been designed to work. It has been proven to reduce drag and improve stability with independent testing in a full-size wind tunnel at MIRA, the UK’s leading automotive research organisation. It has also been proven to achieve a 15% fuel saving in controlled tests*.
The benefits… Aeroplus makes the towing experience feel safer and more comfortable which can result in the driver feeling less tired.
Aeroplus increases car/caravan towing stability – especially on motorways.
