Verdict

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback 1.2 TSI and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 980 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

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 sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2600 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 3200 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 60 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 16%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 28% to drive.

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