Default Towing a caravan

Has anyone towed a caravan with a 306 estate? is it doable or would I be better off getting something bigger like a 405/406

I'm not on about mega distances or a particularly large van (Its only me)

I'm toying with getting a small van to crash out at the steam railway I volunteer at so that I can partake of the real ale bar without having to worry about driving home.

No probs provided you stay within your GTW as marked on VIN plate (What engine you got?)

Non turbo will always struggle under load (especially uphill(you've possibly noticed)). I would guess (but double check) towing capacity approx 550 Kilos (1/2 tonne in old money).

try here
TowCar.info - All about Tow Cars and Towing Caravans

see if you can find a small caravan to compare, it does have the 306 listed but not sure of your model.
