we have a volvo 240 and want to tow a 900 kg tare caravan. the weight on the ball is 70 kg. Is this possible or do we have to buy a lighter van.
Why do you want to tow a van with a Volvo 240 ?. Well if you get your brakes upgraded it should not be dangerous. But you would have to makes sure your car is tottaly gone over by a machanic. Before pushing it that hard. And dont go over 50mph (80 kms) with a heavy load like that behind your Volvo. Good luck. Matt.
a caravan is a UK term for a travel trailer. your Volvo should have no problem talking this as it's rated at 3300 pounds towing capacity.
