Towing with a T Roc

Post by Bopper » Tue Jul 10, 2018 4:06 pm

Anyone else tow a caravan with their t Roc?
We tow with our 2 litre TDi AWD and it tows really well, relatively economical too.

Up to now I’m not very enthousiastic with our combination. The T-Roc tows the caravan very well, but when driving faster then 90 km/h the caravan search it’s own way.

Tips I’ve received:
- buy other wheels (the Conti’s are to soft)
- higher pressure rear wheels (was 2,6 bar, will put it on 3,0 bar)
- turn off lane assist
- take of the paint on the towhook

But one thing for sure: it looks great!

Hi no issues with swaying when towing our Swift, we keep the nose weight at 80 kgs, rear tyres @ 42 psig or 2.9 bar. swift fit Alko stabiliser, this does need the paint removing from the towball to work correctly.

Good to hear! Never had to remove the paint for a correct working stabiliser but I will do it for sure! The nose weight was 85 kgs.

I drive with caravans for about 15 years, never had any problems. Cars I’ve droven since 2003:
- Ford Focus wagon 1.6
- Renault Megane station 2.0
- Ford Focus wagon 2.0
- Ford Mondeo wagon 2.0 diesel
- Ford Focus wagon 1.6 ecoboost
