Will a mercedes v class 220D be able to tow an exclusive caravan? Or would a mercedes v class 250D be better? Or can both work?

not familiar with the mercs in question , however the bigger motor will always be better, you would just need to check what the max permissible towing weight of the vehicle is.
two roads diverged in a wood and i took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

The engine capacity is the same
The V220 D deliver 120 kw and 380 nm torque
The V250 D deliver 140 kw and 440 nm torque
this is good torque figures and will both tow well
With the small price difference I will opt for the V250 D

The maximum towing weight is the kerb weight or tare mass of the vehicle.   The GVM of the Exclusive may not exceed the kerb weight (also known as the licence weight) of the towing vehicle.  Manufacturers tend to state a higher maximum towing weight as shown above by Swanie,  but that is not legal in SA.  This is particularly so in the case of LDVs (bakkies) where the weight is stated as 3500kg in most cases but not legal in SA.

Regards
