AL-KO starts roll-out  of  Electronic Stability Control  fitting network for older caravans

AL-KO starts a progressive rollout of its AL-KO ESC (Electronic Stability Control) Certified Installer Network nationally from today.

AL-KO expects the cost of retrofitting AL-KO ESC to existing caravans will be about. $1,200 - $1,500.

In a world first innovation similar to ESC in cars, AL-KO ESC automatically responds to the driving behaviour of the caravan by monitoring for any dangerous sideways movements. Ittakes preventative action immediately - applying the caravans electric brakes in a safe and controlled manner to maintain stability of both the car and caravan. Thisensures early intervention for a safe recovery.

AL-KO ESC will be available for existing caravans with AL-KO running gear and AL-KO brakes on approved suspensions.

We are extremely pleased and proud to be able to make electronic stability control technology available for the majority of Australians with existing caravans. We believe this is a new era in towing safety, and a technology that will ultimately save lives, Sven Mannfolk, Managing Director of AL-KO International said.

Since launching AL-KO ESC for new caravans in mid 2012, we have had a huge interest from the public regarding installation of the product for their existing caravans, and we already have a significant waiting list, Sven Mannfolk said.

In addition to launching the product for retrofit, over 30 of the major caravan manufacturers are now offering AL-KO ESC as standard or as an option on their new caravans, he said.
