For anyone going to Lickhill Manor over Easter and staying until we leave, I may be able to arrange a demonstration of how the electronic stabiliser works on my caravan after we've packed and secured everything inside and we're ready to move off. All I need is a wide open space free from traffic where I can try to throw the caravan into a deliberate snake. Don't worry, it sounds more dramatic than it is, as I have full faith in the product.

There is a sensor in the back of the caravan which measures the sway, in essence an accelerometer. As soon as the sideways movement in both directions exceeds a certain threshold value, the electronics deploy the brakes of the caravan and 'pull' it straight again.

There was a feature article on the system in the July 2004 of Practical Caravan. You can find a copy of it here:

Yes, it is true that AlKo intend to market an electronic stabiliser system in 2007 but at the moment I believe they have problems with patent rights. The LEAS stabiliser which I have on my caravan works on exactly the same principle and the 2 companies are currently negotiating together to find a mutually acceptable solution.
