Am interested in buying a second hand caravan for fulltime use. What tow vehicles are recommended from personal experience. Is it better to use a double cab than a SUV. Would  Ford Ranger 2.2 Xl cope?

Classique is the caravan that ticks all the boxes for wife. It is a big van so advise is needed to b7t the correct tow car.

Firstly make sure the tare of the tow vehicle exceeds the GVM of the caravan, The Classique is a stable caravan to tow and the 2,2 Ranger will do the job.

Bakkie versus SUV versus Sedan is a personal choice. 

The Classique is not built for gravel roads although I must admit we have done some without visible damage. Our motto was "Slowly, slowly catches the monkey".

Thanks Uranus what do you tow it with? Understand the Tare and GCM etc. The desirable level of NM required, should it be > 350 @ < 2000 rpm ?

Afrikaans antwoorde sal ook baie welkom wees 😎

Hi Bronze! laughing

I tow with an old shape 4X4 auto Everest that has the 3 liter engine. Bit heavy on juice but power and torque is enough for the Classique. NM=380@1800 rpm.

Ek sleep n Swing gemaklik met my 2.2...die Classique is egter heelwat swaarder. Ek het al menigmale gehoor van ouens wat Exclusives met die 2.2 sleep en tevrede is. Soos HM reeds genoem het, kyk na die gewig. Miskien kan jy vir Ford vra of jy die karavaan n entjie kan sleep tydens toetsbestuur en dan so besluit of die kombinasie vir jou gaan werk of nie....vir die een persoon gaan die krag voldoende wees en vir die ander een miskien weer te min.

WAARSKUWING:

Kampeer is aansteeklik en verslawend 😁

Kleiner engins sukkel om weg te trek teen styl opdraandes, veral by groter hoogtes bo seespieel. Met handratte verniel jy dus die koppellaar.  As jy egter eers aan die gang is, doen hulle baie goed.

As jy dus meestal by die kus gaan rond beweeg sal jy regkom, maar as dit in die binneland gaan wees, moet jy begroot vir koppellaar herstelwerk.

Our regular camping friends has a Jurgens Classique and they tow it with the 2.2 Ranger. It is actualy a perfect combination.  He says he has no trouble towing the Classique.

If you want you can contact me and I will forward you his no.

Dan kan jy direk uit die perd se bek hoor hoe sleeo die 2,2 die Classique.

Rakende die Tara en GVM van die wa is daar nie probleme met die kombinasie nie.

Dankie Flip, ek sou n outmatiese ratkas kies.

Hi 😀 the Classique is a heavy van , at 100 kmh, if a big truck barrels past does it effect the stability of the van? This is a whole new lifestyle that appeals to me but have very little experience.

Hi WJ The Exclusives are very heavy, so when I look at the Tare of the various tow cars there is not much that can tow it at a reasonable price. Money unfortunately is a limiting factor.😎

Hi Leon Malcolm 0833218617 or Malcolm.shilton@gmail.com 

Can you tell me about your experience that has led you to sell the big van ?

Thanks

2.5L en kleiner diesels.  Ons toer nou al vir meer as 15 jaar die land vol en onsself en 'n hele klompie van ons kennisse het hierdie toets gedop.

As jy net 'n paar maal per jaar gaan kamp, sal die koppellaar seker hou, maar as jy voltyds sleep is dit 'n ander storie. Totdat die turbo inskop is daar net eenvoudig nie genoeg krag in die kleiner enjins nie.  

Skaf 'n groter enjin voertuig aan of gaan vir 'n autoboks as jy heeltyds wil rond toer.

Tare is more than required for Classique, checked on Ford website.

Ek self het my Penta met 'n 2.5 Tdi Mazda gesleep. Toe oorgegaan na 'n 2.5 Tdi Navara die 402Nm krag een.  Die het ek my Penta en 'n Classique mee gesleep.

Die voertuie het meer as genoeg krag om die waens te sleep.  Nadat ek oorgeskakel het na die Ranger toe het ek my 2,5 Navara baie gemis grootendeels oor die brandstof verbruik. In vergeleke met ander diesel bakkies was hy baie ligter op brandstof. Ek moet darem sê dat die automatiese ratkas van die Wildtrak my baie getroos het en die krag met die Auto box is fantasties om mee te sleep.

Agree 100% with your motto about Jesus, Proverbs 24:15 "As for me and my house we will serve the Lord" is Ours!
