Default Towing with a Fiat Multipla.

Has anyone got any experience of towing a caravan with a Fiat Multipla.
Is it a suitable vehicle to tow with. We currently have a Kia Carens
with a 1.8 ltr. petrol engine which is sometimes hard work but are
looking to change in the near future. Any advice appreciated. Thanks

Its 'recommended' that as a first time tower you keep to 85% of the
kerbweight, providing the manufacturer does not specify a lower limit.
