Camper / Caravan Upgrade

I have a TomTom G0 1005, is it possible to set it or tell it I'm towing a caravan to avoid B roads where possible?

Serial number start ST

    So I can't tell the TomTom I'm pulling a caravan unless I buy the new maps?? Seems strange to have to but a new map to open up a different menu? Are you sure it will work, I guess I can't get a refund once I've bought map if it doesn't?

    The Europe-Camper map has all the width restrictions in it, along with the heights of bridges etc. It is the presence of these that triggers the vehicle type/dimension setup.

    If you look at the manual page 106
    TomTom camper and caravan products let you choose the type of vehicle you are driving so that the route planned by your device is suitable for your vehicle. You can choose a car, a car with caravan, a motorhome, or a van as the vehicle type. Routes planned by your device avoid restrictions for the vehicle type. For example, a route calculated for a motorhome may be different from the route calculated for a car. You can set the size, weight and type of your vehicle as well as your preferred type of route.

    Before you can choose your vehicle type you must select the camper and caravan map on your device.
