Outfit matching is the term used to describe whether a particular car and caravan are suitable for use together.
It is vitally important to check this before towing any caravan for the first time, and sensible to do so before purchasing a new or replacement car or caravan. By doing so, you should be able to ensure that your outfit is safe, legal and comfortable to tow.
Outfit matching is not, in principle, a complex process. However, finding the relevant technical details (even for a vehicle you already own) can be challenging, some of the terminology used may be unfamiliar, and interpreting the results of the simple calculations we use to evaluate a given combination can be awkward if you haven't done this before or for a while.
To address these issues, we offer two options to make this process easier.
Online outfit matching service
Available for free to Club members only, this service allows you to research a future purchase or just experiment with different options.
If you have any questions about this online service, please take a look at our outfit matching help page, which provides extensive help on how to interpret the results and get the best from the system.
Telephone outfit matching service
Also available for free, this service is open to Club members via a dedicated phone number. You will receive help and advice from an experienced Information Officer. This service is available from Monday to Friday, between 9:00am and 5:30pm. At busy times, we may have to restrict the number of options we can discuss with you to avoid undue delays for other members, so it's best it you have a shortlist of no more than three models to consider.
