Verdict

The Ford Transit Connect 1.5 TDCi 75 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1030 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general moderate but for your use maybe sufficient.Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 2500 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 3th gear 48 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 14%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 27% to drive.
