Hi fellow campers

I am on the market for a new 2nd hand car and have come across a 2005 VR6 T32 VW Caravelle for sale

Can anyone advise me what the towing capability of this car is please. I have a Sunway double axle T=875kg

 

Thanks in advance

Colin

What I can see, Tarra >2300 kg and VW recomends a towing capacity of 2500 kg.

Colin, while camping last year I had a conversation with fellow camper with Caravelle, Penta combination. According to him it was only a pleasure towing.

AMAZING

I towed a 1995 Penta with a 1995 VW Microbus 2,5 petrol, without any stabilisers. The van was usually packed over the max for the axle.

It was a pleasure towing with that combination.

I can only think that a Caravelle will be a good match for the Sunway (my dream caravan in days before we started caravanning)

Should only be a pleasure. More so with the double axle.
