Here are a couple of good sites to check to see if your car and caravan are a good match

http://www.whattowcar.com/index.php


QUOTE
Just select a Car and Caravan and our online computing model gives you all the information you need. Possible top speeds include wind effects and road gradients. Predictions for successful hill starts and outfit acceleration are provided. For safe towing you can check the outfit weight ratio.

Maybe you're looking for another towcar or a heavier caravan or you want to compare your outfit with another. It's all possible!


Another good site is http://www.towsafe.co.uk/ but there is a small cost

QUOTE
The only Car/Caravan Outfit Matching Service that can answer the question "Can my car tow this caravan safely?". TOWSAFE is the only system that can comprehensively answer this question safely and securely. Its extensive database gives fingertip access to weights and towing capacities of over 30,000 caravans and cars, including information on Nose Weight and Gross Train Weight limits.


Touring and Tenting has no control over the content of external websites, You will need to check them and decide upon the accuracy of the information and the extent to which it is sufficiently up to date.

This is a handy document for finding out actual % of your caravan to your tow vehicle

You can download the spreadsheet here

As with everything else this is a guide only.

Thanks to Mr December for supplying it to us
