New to caravan towing and need towing capacity advice?

  1. If you're not yet an experienced tower, your caravan's MTPLM (maximum laden weight) should be no more than 85 per cent of a car's kerbweight. If you're a seasoned caravanner, the all-up weight of the caravan should never exceed the kerbweight of your tow car.
  2. Once you have discovered the car's towing capacity, make certain you read our articles about towing mirrors, why you should consider taking a towing course, and our holiday checklist for before you tow.
  3. You will find more help in this article, 'Everything you need to know about your car towbar', to help you understand the types of towbars available, and their pros and cons. For anyone interested in electrics, read 'Caravan towing electrics explained' will help you understand socket types on caravans and towcars.
  4. Want to know how experts fit a towbar? That's covered in the 'Witter Towbar Fitting: Step-by-Step' guide. If financing a towcar and caravan are on your mind, read our article 'PCP: Paying for your Caravan and Towcar'.
