Verdict

The Renault Clio dCi 85 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 550 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 more than sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2200 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 4th gear with 50 mph up hill. In the 3th gear the top speed is 57 mph (3816 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 26%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
