Hi All, I am picking up my new diesel 4x4 sportage on sunday and am wondering what type of caravans people might be towing, and how the car does as a tow car.
I'm considering returning to caravanning previously towing with range rovers, volvos etc.
Any info much appreciated!

Roll on Sunday, much excitement here!!!!

Thanks for that, I wouldnt be towing anything more than a 4 berth and probably a lightweight like a Lunar, so hopefully no probs!!

Ha Ha , picked up the car on the day of the Rugby! Great match though, fair play to the welsh, we were outplayed, no doubt about it!!
Great car, drives absolutely first class, a huge improvement on the Range Rover.... off to buy a caravan now, think a Lunar or maybe a Quasar!!!
