Verdict

The Nissan X-Trail dCi 130 and the Eriba Touring Triton 430 of a laden weight of 1000 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 very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine just a bit of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. 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 5th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 66 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 71 mph (3632 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.

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

Reviews

The Nissan towing a Eriba Touring Triton 430 (1000) kg reviewed by Kevin Bailey:

The Eriba is usually loaded to around 1150 kg, the car has bikes or kayaks loaded on the roof. The xtrail is extremely stable especially with a little extra pressure in the rear tyres.Acceleration is average with the caravan931 in tow, it is best on the motorway when speeds of 60mph can be maintained with ease. This car/caravan combination seems very safe and well within the xtrail capabilities however I would imagine with a heavy caravan it would be a little lethargic.
