It's not so must the power of your engine You need to know what the weight of the tow car is & I believe the the caravan should not be more than about 75% of this when upto its fully legal laden weight & also it makes a difference if it as one axle or two axle braked or unbraked find out if towing A single axle caravan what the total nose weight your chevy will take & get yourself a gauge to check this as its an important safety factor in the uk there are outfit match checking site's have a look see if you can find one happy caravaning

OK I do have Towing capabilities for my Captiva 7 LTZ Diesel. The caravan is rated at 1750 kgs loaded. Question- What is the towing capacity of a Captiva 7 Diesel suggests a tow limit of 1700 kgs with a max ball weight of 170 kg
if it is a 2.2 L diesel it is less than a 3.2 L petrol which is 2000 kgs
in your configuration you will need anti-sway bars or load levelers to get the ball weight down to the 170 kgs
then if you load the van for touring it will be well over the specs for the vehicle
the towing capacity should be on the plate inside a front door pillar along with tyre sizes and pressures

I have a captiva LTZ and want to know if I tow a caravn can I do it in fifth gear and what will happen if I do

Always tow in Drive overdrive gears are not recommend. Also call a trusted transmission shop and get their advice. You can cause damage by towing in the wrong gear setting on a automatic trans. Standard trans can tow in any gear.

Can Toyotas be towed four wheels down

As a general rule most Toyotas can not be flat towed. Some of the standard shift models may be towed, but not the automatics. Check the owner's manual to be sure, but many Toyota dealers say that the warranty will be voided if towed 4 down.

1999 series 2 discovery TD5 auto.

Its not a tractor and i wouldnt tow with a automatic anyway as i think its dangerous as no engine braking but? now without a drive i honestly couldnt give you a concrete answer but i do suspect a worn pinion on one of the diffs or maybe something worn in the transfer box which is more than money than this vehicle is worth no doubt so put some STP additive in the diff and transfer box ,use the one for the engine oil as this will help or pump some LM grease into each unit ,or buy a new vehicle which is no doubt cheaper as if this is a big petrol engine then its a worthless old vehicle a diesel will hold its price though even more so in europe

Can I tow my 2002 grand caravan es on all 4 tires?

The answer is yes and no, but more no than yes. How far do you need to tow the vehicle? It is not recommended that any vehicle with automatic transmission be towed more than a few miles. With an auto transmission, towing without the engine running will not allow fluid to circulate throughout transmission, causing major damage to the gears in the transmission. If possible, use a tow dolly instead of towing on all four wheels.
