The ATC device is an ingenious solution that helps prevent a caravan from snaking. This simple electronic control system reacts quickly to maintain the stability of the car and caravan. AL-KO ATC is similar to the ESP-system on some cars, continually monitoring the stability of the caravan during a journey and only operates when an unstable condition is encountered.  When AL-KO ATC activates, the driver will feel the vehicle being slowed down by the soft braking of the caravan.

TyrePal tyre monitoring systems

TyrePal supply tyre pressure monitoring systems for a wide range of vehicles, including single and twin axle caravans. You simply need to replace the existing dust caps in your caravan tyres with valve cap sensors, to monitor the temperature and pressure of each tyre. A wireless signal is then transmitted to a monitor that sits on your tow car’s dashboard.

This early visual and audible warning system can help reduce the likelihood of an accident caused by a tyre blowout, puncture or leaking value (providing additional peace of mind for the safety conscious caravanner).
