CAR MAKER SSANGYONG has forged closer links with the towing market by sponsoring the Caravan Club’s flagship event. 


The National, the Caravan Club’s six day rally is open to all caravanners and offers a range of activities for the young, old and families. This year’s event is timed to coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, meaning caravanners get to spend their extra bank holiday at Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire, 1-6 June.


As well sponsoring the event, Ssangyong is giving visitors the chance to win a SsangYong Korando compact four-wheel drive as a competition prize over the course of the weekend. Our towcar editor, David Motton, took a look at the Korando late last year, which you read by clicking here.


Perfect fit 

“This is a perfect fit for SsangYong,” said Steve Gray, marketing and communications director of SsangYong Motor UK.  “All three of our cars, the new Korando crossover, Rexton 4×4 and Rodius MPV make great tow cars, and represent a real value for money proposition for caravanners. We are very pleased to be teaming up with The Caravan Club on what we hope will be the first of many opportunities to partner the caravan community.”


Len Short, events manager from The Caravan Club says, “The SsangYong brand is well respected by caravanners, and the new Korando is another welcome addition to its range of great tow cars.  We are therefore especially pleased to have SsangYong supporting this year’s event.”
