Last year CIL announced that AL-KO, the world leaders in caravan axles, brakes and components manufacture had released a revolutionary new Electronic Stability Control (ESC) technology for new electric braked caravans.
CIL is pleased to announce that AL-KO ESC is now available for installation on older caravans with AL-KO brakes and approved suspensions.
The ESC helps control the sway effect in caravans, which often results in loss of both car and tow vehicle control. There are a number of scenarios when this might happen, including taking an emergency evasive manoeuvre to avoid an obstacle that has suddenly appeared on the road ahead.
AL-KO ESC senses when you are making an avoidance manoeuvre and that the caravan is out of alignment, so it automatically applies the brakes, slowing you down to help you drive around and avoid the incident on the road.
Sven Mannfolk, Managing Director of AL-KO International said: "We believe AL-KO ESC is the most significant development in towing safety ever developed for the Australian market. It amounts to a new era in towing safety and will ultimately save lives".
Innovations like the AL-KO Electronic Stability Control (ESC) are a valuable addition to any electrically braked caravan, no matter how experienced you are in towing a caravan.
CIL insurance acknowledges the value of on-road safety. Ask your RV dealer if your new caravan comes with the AL-KO Electronic Stability Control device, or arrange an ESC fitment to your existing caravan and you may be eligible for a 10% discount off your CIL caravan insurance.
