Verdict

The towing limit is unknown to us. Please check the towing limit!. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while the towing limit is unknown.

The Cadillac Escalade 6.0 V8 and the Hobby La Vita Bionda 545 KMF of a laden weight of 1577 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2400 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) driving is easily possible in the 2th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 83 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 26%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 20% not to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!

Reviews

The Cadillac towing a Hobby La Vita Bionda 545 KMF (1577) kg reviewed by Rein:

The 2003 Escalade ESV is doing very well with this kit! Fuel consumption does not change much and power continues to overtake.
