Verdict

The Car as an example and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1250 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general fairly good. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 90 km/h in the 6th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2100 rpm. Maybe the engine is not running smoothly at low revs so it is better to shiftdown to the 5th gear, the engine runs in that case 2600 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2600 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (5%) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 80 km/h and even full throttle with 101 km/h. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 13%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 23% to drive.
