Verdict

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback 1.0 TSI aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 990 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 more than sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2700 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 3300 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 55 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 56 mph (5559 rpm). Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 17%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 30% to drive.
