Hi, we are looking to buy a 2 berth caravan 850kg not loaded. We have a VW Polo 1.4i TDI. Just wanted to know if this car will be practical to pull the caravan or whether I really need to look at renewing my car which we dont really want to do. If we went up a hill, would our car be struggling really badly, would it damage the engine? We are complete novists so would really appreciate advice. Thanks for taking the time to read :-) Happy holidaying

Hi Debbie, if you're a member of the carvan club you can try completing a car to caravan match on there FOC, if not, try whattowcar.com, you can carry out the same match on there, although not knowing your van mopdel, I searched a similar weight van to that sated in your post and it did come back as being too heavy for the car especially if you are novice towers.
Hope this helps..
Ozzy

I wouldnt suggest this was a suitable car, needs to be 1.6/1.9 TDi You wont damage the engine but more the clutch as you will be putting massive stress on the running gear
