Match your car and caravan

It's important to match your tow car to your caravan before towing for the first time to ensure that your outfit is safe, legal, and comfortable to tow.

Finding the relevant technical details (even for a vehicle you already own) can often be challenging and some of the terminology used may be unfamiliar. Also interpreting the results of the simple calculations we use to evaluate a given combination of car and caravan match can be awkward if you haven't done this before.

Browse our information on choosing a towcar or use our outfit matching calculator below to find out more specifics about what size caravan your car can tow.
