Coupling | Caravan | Trailer | Truck

Couplings on caravans and trailers perform the enormous task of pulling a variety of loads at highway speeds.

However, down under, a road trip isn’t really much of a ‘road’ trip. For the most part, you’ll be driving through dirt trails. You’ll also be driving through the rocky flatlands so your choice of coupling is critical.

If your caravan breaks down, there’s no one you can call for help. And if you can’t fix whatever’s broken, you’ll have nowhere to get spare trailer parts from. In the sweltering Australian heat, it’s going to take a lot more than just time to fix your flat tire or broken trailer coupling by yourself.

There’s a surprisingly easy workaround, though.

Some Handy Expert Information On Couplings

At Couplemate, we stock couplings for caravans, trailers, and off-road campers, as well as couplings for horse floats. The type of coupling you require for your caravan is completely dependent upon the load you are carrying.

Box trailers and other small trailers used a star coupling for many years. Officials outlawed these after a string of serious issues. Occasionally, you’ll see one of these couplings surfaces when they need a replacement. These trailers now use the standard 2000kg snap coupling, which does not use brakes.

The override coupling is used to control mechanical as well as hydraulic brakes, despite being rated at 2000kg as well. The snap coupling does not have this ability.

Best seller

The best-seller—and the true workhorse of couplings—is the 3500kg Electric Coupling. This is installed on almost every caravan in Australia, as it incorporates a park brake handle for electric brakes.

Caravans and trailers rated between 3.5t and 4.5t use a larger 70mm ball and coupling. Unlike the couplings we’ve talked about already, you’ll need approval from DOT Canberra before you use the 70mm couplings on the highway.

Trailers rated over 4.5t must use a combination of air over hydraulic braking systems. Furthermore, we have an ADR-approved 6t ring coupling, which suits trailers rated up to 6t.

At Couplemate, our largest coupling is the 10t Gooseneck coupling. It is ADR-approved and has all the necessary certification.

Couplemate sells only the best quality trailer and caravan spares throughout Australia—covering the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland. We also ship products via Australia Post Air to New Zealand.
