I have an Award Daystar Caravan max loaded weight 1150kg. At present I am towing with a Rover 416. Although it pulls it ok, I am on maximum tow weight. I am thinking about changing it for a Ford Focus 1.8 TDDI diesel or 1.8 or 2.0l petrol. Can any advise me if either of these are ok.

We tow a Lunar Ariva 2 berth with a Ford Focus Zetec TDI 1.9 and it tows it very well. Pulls off quickly and goes up steep hills without problem. Not had it that long but seems to be okay in diesel consumption. OH feels it could tow a bit heavier caravan without problem.
