Verdict

The maximum train weight is exceeded by 39 kg! For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while actually legally overweight.

The Renault Captur TCe 90 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1200 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

Weight

There is a small chance of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are great at high speed. For drivers with knowledge of, and experience in driving a caravan it is safe to drive, but proper and careful loading is still important! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is worth considering.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very moderate but for your use maybe 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 3600 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 4900 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 3th gear 48 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 12%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 10% not to drive.
