    Bob hitched up the caravan to his car

    I am not sure if my sentence sounds natural. Is it correct to say "hitched up the caravan to"?


    Bob hitched up the caravan to his car and drove off on holiday.

    I would omit "up".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Note that 'caravan' and 'holiday' are distinctly BrE. AmE equivalents would be 'camper' and 'vacation', respectively.

    I mention this mostly because I seem to recall you contemplating a move to the US, but perhaps that was another member.
