Towing a trailer or caravan at any time requires extra care and in the Yorkshire Dales this is even more important.
Even A and B roads will be narrow and there are many narrow bridges to watch out for.
Our advice is to plan your journey carefully and to use the Dales Advisory Road Hierarchy as your guide. You can consult a copy on our Dales maps map page (details also provided there about obtaining your own copy).
Avoid category 4 and 5 roads unless you have first assessed the route in a smaller vehicle or have been advised that your destination can be reached with your unit.
Category 3 roads are also best avoided at busy times and if possible you should follow the one way system recommended for large vehicles in our Dales Advisory Road Hierarchy.
Pay particular attention to the gradient of roads as many Dales roads and passes have some very steep and dangerous ascents and descents.
