JB Caravans first manufacturer in Australia to offer ABS & sway mitigation technology as standard equipment
Melbourne, Australia: AL-KO Vehicle Technology Australia & New Zealand has announced that JB Caravans will be the first in Australia to supply its revolutionary new Tow Assist ABS & sway mitigation technology as standard equipment on upcoming caravan models.
Developed by AL-KO in collaboration with leading automotive supplier Bosch, Tow Assist is world’s first technology that brings advanced automotive level safety systems to caravans, including Anti-lock Braking (ABS), sway mitigation and a towable odometer via a smart phone app.
The announcement of JB Caravans becoming the first to fit AL-KO Tow Assist as standard equipment to specific models continues the strong interest in Tow Assist in the Australian market from both caravan manufacturers & end users since its recent launch.
Ergun Kirmaci, General Manger – Sales & Marketing at AL-KO said: “We‘re extremely pleased that JB Caravans has recognised the significance of Tow Assist by making it standard on upcoming models in their 2022 range. We believe this is a new era in towing safety, and a technology that will ultimately save lives. To have JB Caravans behind the technology as a market leader in off-road caravans is a big step forward in ensuring the highest possible level of safety on our roads”.
Wayne Coleman, JB Caravans National Marketing Manager said: “JB Caravans always strive to be at the forefront of caravan design and we take the safety of our customers very seriously. We felt the safety benefits of Tow Assist were too significant for us to ignore, so we are pleased to include the technology as standard fitment on some of our upcoming caravan models.”
For JB Caravans customers currently in the market for a new caravan, Tow Assist is also now available for optional fitment to suitably configured new caravans that include AL-KO suspension.
“The relatively low cost of fitting Tow Assist is a small price to pay to ensure safety and peace of mind for you and your family. Your insurance company may also offer a premium reduction for having Tow Assist fitted” said Mr Kirmaci.
