Verdict

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback 1.6 TDI and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1030 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 fairly good. Under most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2400 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed 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 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 62 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 18%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
