What Car? Q&A - Can an A-Class tow our caravan?
A: The A-Class isn't up to towing such a heavy load. Your wife's A-Class has a maximum towing capacity of 1000kg (braked), and your caravan will probably weigh much more than that once it's laden with your belongings, so you'll need something bigger.
We don't advise towing anything that weighs more than 85% of a car's kerbweight, regardless of its official towing capacity. Even if the A-Class had a higher maximum towing limit and a bit more grunt, it wouldn't be safe to tow more than 1105kg (85% of its kerbweight).
