Tips for driving towing a caravan

Travelling by car with a caravan is very different from doing it staying in a hotel. Contact with nature, freedom, decision-making capacity at every moment, adventure… these are just some of the things that we like the most about this form of tourism. But if you are taking a caravan with you, there are a few things you cannot ignore. Take note of these tips to know how to drive a caravan.

Before starting the car engine and towing the caravan, there are some aspects that we must know.

Can I tow any caravan with a B category on my driver’s license?

With the type B driving license, you can only carry trailers weighing less than 750 kilos, and you can also drive the caravan if the weight of the car and the trailer does not exceed 3,500 kilos.

If the weight is greater, but it does not reach 4,250 kilos, you would need the B96 permit. 

On the other hand, if both add between 4,250 and 7,000 kilos, the B + E permit will be required.

Finally, if the weight of the two is greater than 7,000 kilos, the required license is the C + E truck license.

Can all cars be used to tow a caravan?

Not all cars are ready to tow a trailer. You need to confirm it in the technical sheet. It is important to know how much weight they can support.

Normally, the weight that you can tow should not exceed half the weight of the car itself. In this blog post, we tell you which are the best cars to tow a caravan.

Conclusions

In conclusion, we wanted to remind you of some essential tips for when a Mini Countryman is towing a caravan.  Do not load more than the car’s towing capacity and hook; find the exact towing capacity for your model and consult your owner’s manual.  If you need to back up with a trailer, remember that you have to turn the steering wheel in the direction you want the trailer to turn in reverse.
