Number of useful calculations

The towing limit is exceeded by 130 kg! It is not allowed to drive with this Caravan. Make sure the towing limit is correct. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while actually legally overweight.

Verdict as the caravan would not be legaly too heavy

The Dacia Duster TCe 100 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1230 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general just sufficient. Under most 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 3300 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed 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 3th gear with 50 mph up hill. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 11%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 8% not to drive.

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