    Tow car?

    S max 2.0 tdci titanium. 2014 and just 40000 miles on clock, 1 owner and full Ford service history. Delighted with it 👍 Thank you for all the feedback.

    Tow car?

    Appreciated. Thanks for this, think we are swaying towards s max as other half is more of a petrol head than me and she likes a fun drive when not towing.

    Tow car?

    Still torn between a honda cvr 1.6 and s max 2.0 tdci titanium. Both 2014 both 34000 miles. Thoughts? Decision to be made by tomorrow morning. Don't know my cars. Honda 1. 6 1700kg towing capacity Ford s max 1800kg but honda appears a bit better on fuel via honest John? S max more spacious for 3 passengers in back.

    Both cars same price(which of course, I've upped) same age, same mileage. 2014 30000 miles. Honda 1.6, Ford 2.0. Genuinelly torn. Wondering if fuel economy better on Honda. Says it is so influencing factor. Decisions decisions.

    Wewere not towing illegally., caravans mtlpm is actually 1250. All thoroughly checked. Although certainly not advised based on carstowing capacity of 1200. We have only towed it once home and went away locally once, hence looking for a better equipped tow car. Up until laws change what is checked is if you are over 3500kg based on plated weights. Weighed absolutely everything on 1 trip including battery which came to 160kg. Most that can happen is we are sent to weigh bridge which we would most definitely be under should we have been checked. We won't be away again anyway until another tow car purchased. Caravan now stored until spring. So question is, honda crv or Ford s max now.

    I'm not towing illegally at the moment. Just not equipped with the most suitable tow car by any means. However, I thank you all for suggestions and I'm aware I can look on auto trader but was looking to see if anyone had any personal feedback from their own experience and perhaps more knowledge that my beginner self. S max seems like a good option. Definitely appears to be expensive car market at the moment. Not sure what's causing that? Same with housing market.

    Thanks for that detailed reply and you are bang on with weights above. We are aware we definitely need a stronger pulling car and are on the hunt. We don't have a motor mover fitted and our battery is 17kg. We put vast majority of luggage in car but want to get something far more capable. We are thinking 2 litre.

    Tow car?

    Help please. We have a ford grand c max. Kerb weight 1575kg but towing capacity 1200kg. We bought a Bailey ranger 500/5 mtplm 1270kg. MIRO 1009kg. Despite towcar saying good match and fact our car tows it well (tried twice) we are thinking we should be getting a tow car with more capibility? Our pay load is 160kg, weighed everything meticulously. Any suggestions please on a budget? Around 6k max?
