AL-KO launches anti-snaking<br>electronic control system

16942cb9-25d5-474d-86e4-5db7d0c4fa18
AL-KO’S new anti-snaking control system will be available for aftermarket fitment from October, the company has revealed.

From then, the ATC Trailer Control system can be fitted to caravans which have an AL-KO chassis and will cost less than £400, with fitment taking about an hour.

Work can be carried out at one of two AL-KO centres - Southam in Warwickshire or Burton-on-Trent, Derbyshire.

The emergency braking system, which works in a similar way to ESP in cars, will be launched to the aftermarket at the International Caravan and Motorhome Show at the NEC on October 16.

Marketing manager Paul Jones said: “During the development process of ATC, we have found that caravan design is inherently very stable and safe. It is still very important that drivers continue to follow safe towing guidelines and drive responsibly.

“What ATC provides is confidence to a driver, that should they experience difficult driving conditions, ATC will be ready to control the vehicle safely past the danger.”

A number of caravan manufactures now offer the system as standard fit on new products or as an option.
