If the car feels bouncy then pay particular attention to the nose weight of the caravan when loaded. A general rule of thumb is that the nose weight/hitch weight should be between 5 and 9% of your loaded caravan weight. Of course, tow bars have different maximum weight limits and if this is lower or falls between the 5 to 9% of your van, then this should be your max hitch weight. Anything heavy inside your caravan should be secured low and as close as possible to the axle. If you actually weigh your caravan at the towing hitch then just remember to weigh it at a height the same as the towing ball.
Many thanks, I'll have a look at the nose weight. I think it's just also getting use to towing a caravan rather than a small trailer to & from an allotment.
