Verdict

The Peugeot 208 1.5 BlueHDi 100 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 960 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general just sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2400 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 3th gear. The engine runs approximately 3400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 55 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 15%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.
