Buying a new towcar can be a lengthy process if you don't know exactly what you're looking for.

Fortunately, the Caravan Club has launched a new outfit matching service that can help you find the right vehicle to suit your caravan.

Available for free to members only, the tool contains a database of 50,000 car models and more than 9,000 caravan types.

By inputting the details of your touring carava and the towcar you plan to purchase, you can find out whether the combination you have chosen is a suitable match in terms of safety, legality and comfortable towing.

Of course the matching service works the other way around and can also help you find the right caravan to suit your existing tow car.

Caravan Club members can already receive personal advice from technical advisors on potential outfit combinations, so the new online tool will act as a compliment to this existing service.
