Mazda 6 need to reverse with caravan on

We are guessing that we need to disable the rear parking sensors as it thinks the caravan is too close?? Thanks

Welcome.

What model year?

You're right that you will probably have to disable the rear sensors if you're towing something.

Check Westfalia Automotive in Europe. They have a module that disconnects the sensors and also modifies antiskid behaviour etc. when you have a trailer/caravan in tow.
