Our daughter owns a 64 plate Toyota Verso 7 seat, and looked at borrowing our Elddis Avante 462, but the Whattowcar.com and the Caravan Club matching service reports were not very favourable.

The Elddis is around 1250kg fully loaded, im unsure of the weight of the Eribas, but if you try entering the details into the Whattowcar.com free outfit match checker online, then you should get some idea of performance from your intended match.

The nose weight can be lowered by moving things back in the van

It depends on interior layout of both Familia & Triton. The front kitchen models can have around 70kg noseweight but the centre kitchen models struggle to get 40kg.

We have a 2.2 diesel Verso and the towing weight is 1300kg and nose weight is 50kg. We tow it at 55kg as we can't get it any lower. It's fine. We inadvertently towed the caravan at 1360kg and it coped but it wasn't happy on the hillstarts in traffic.
