  • Higher speeds are safely possible

Bad

  • Caravan legally (150 kg) too heavy!

Number of useful calculations

The towing limit is exceeded by 150 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 Suzuki Celerio 1.0 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 550 kg is a combination suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations and not for slopes of more than 10%.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general bad but for your use maybe sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 4300 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 2th gear. The engine runs approximately 6400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 2th gear with 50 mph up hill. Hill starts are possible on slopes up to 10%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 17% to drive.

Results

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