Verdict

The Skoda Rapid 1.2 TSI and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 800 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general just sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2900 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 3th gear. The engine runs approximately 4100 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 54 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 15%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 27% to drive.
