In the context of Caravan Road Rallies the term trade refers to a caravan manufacturer or dealer.
A works team is a group of drivers and co‑drivers which competed in the rally to represent a specific caravan manufacturer.
If a caravan sways from side to side while being towed, this is called snaking. This is normally caused by a caravan which is carrying an uneven load and is being towed at high speed.
This is when the car and caravan are removed from each other by 'unhitching' the tow bar which keeps them together.
