A Vectra 2.0DTI may tow up to 1500kg but for someone new to towing it would be advisable to stay well below that figure. The 85% recommendation that is often quoted (i.e. 85% of the kerbweight, which, in the case of your Vectra is 1510kg) would give you a maximum of around 1300kg. Which caravans fall within this limit can be found by searching an appropriate database such as http://www.cuddles.abelgratis.net/vandata.htm

My Vectra 2.0DTI weighs in at 1420kgs therefore the 85% comes out at 1207kgs
