Towing is not a black art!
But practice certainly helps.

You don’t need a huge car to tow, but you do need to
make sure your car and your caravan are safely matched:

Small car = folding caravan Medium car = small to medium sized caravan Larger/heavier car = large caravan
Small car = folding caravan Medium car = small to medium sized caravan Larger/heavier car = large caravan

As a rule of thumb, your caravan – when loaded - should weigh no more than 85% of the kerb weight of the car.

The NCC, supported by The Caravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club, have produced a Towing Guide.
