Verdict

The Nissan X-Trail - 2.2 dCi and the Coachman VIP 535/4 of a laden weight of 1580 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The risk of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving exist. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are so great that it could be dangerous. Only if the driver has knowledge of and experience in driving a caravan it should be safe to drive. Proper and careful loading is essential! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is recommended.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear. Faster is certainly not advisable! In that case the engine runs approximately 2100 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 5th gear with 50 mph up hill. In the 4th gear the top speed is 61 mph (3327 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 19%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!

The Nissan towing a Coachman VIP 535/4 (1580) kg reviewed by Richard Griffiths:

The X Trail is a 2006 Adventura with full spec I just towed the coachman loaded approx 1575 kg with no effort at all over a 350 mile return journey only having to use the 4wd setting on steep hill junction pull offs, the car averaged out 26 mpg towing on A roads would expect a little more on motorways, I have been towing for 30 years plus and the X trail is one of the best I have had giving confidence in all situations.
