How do I know how much my car can tow?
or to put it another way, how big a car do I need to tow that caravan? The general rule especially for someone
inexperienced in towing is that the caravan should weigh no more than 85% of the car's weight. If your maths is sound you
probably don't need to go any further but if you're not sure how to work it out it's quite simple really. Lay your hands
on pen and paper and your car's handbook, (you can use a calculator if you have to).
