Hi. Have a Ford Mondeo 2015 2L diesel 180 manual which tows my 575 Coachman caravan 2016 model. Everything fine until I fried my clutch last week as I ended up making a series of hill starts from stationary following roadworks and T junction. Costing me over £1k to repair which I don’t want to pay again! Moving awning into car to help but the hillstart assist, electronic brake, clutch and weight of caravan all seemed to be working against each other. Quite frightening experience and I am a reasonably experienced tower! Am pleased with the Mondeo but having read forum wish I had chosen automatic. Any advice out there? Would rather not have to change the car if possible as only had it six months.
