VanSafe Queensland – Free Caravan Safety Showcase


About this event

New state-wide caravan safety program kicks off on the Fraser Coast this weekend

VanSafe Queensland is an initiative of Caravanning Queensland in partnership with the Queensland Government’s StreetSmarts Program.

In response to the post-Covid caravanning boom and the rapid rise in recreational vehicle (RV) ownership across Queensland over the past few years, Maryborough will kick off a FREE statewide caravan safety check program this weekend.

Open to all owners of caravans, campers and motorhomes, VanSafe Queensland will educate and support recreational vehicle (RV) owners with the information they need to tow confidently, safely and compliantly – helping to create safer roads right across the state.

In addition to safety workshops and displays, the event will feature free Weight and Towing Masterclasses covering weight distribution, correct loading, towing tips and tricks as well as an open Q&A format to empower all attendees with the knowledge to embark on their next road trip safely and with confidence.
Attendees also have the option to book in for an RV combination inspection and weigh for safety and compliance. To encourage participation, the event will be a safe zone for all who attend meaning no fines or breaches will be issued.

The event will take place over three days and three locations from Friday, April, 21 to Sunday, April, 23 between 3:00pm and 5:00pm;

With the highest number of registered recreational vehicles in Queensland (201,477) and a 190% increase in Google searches around caravan safety in Queensland, there is no excuse for current or aspiring ‘cara-fans’ not head on down to one of the below masterclasses – but remember to BYO chair!
