Verdict

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2100 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Reviews

The Honda towing a Bailey Pegasus GT65 Genova (1286) kg reviewed by Martin Wayte:

2016 Civic 1.6 DTEC SR Tourer and 2014 Bailey Genoa. I’ve been towing with this outfit for 8 months now. Civic is nice and stable and has plenty of torque. 6th gear, with cruise set at 63mph on the motorway most of the time, changing down for some gradients. 30mpg average towing. 60mpg solo. Suspension is slightly on the soft side, with ‘van on the back and a large dog in the boot, regardless of what setting, usually set on Dynamic for towing (Comfort/Normal/Dynamic). Generally I would recommend the Civic. Planning on a Bailey Phoenix 440 next.
