Verdict

The Renault Trafic 1.6 dCi 95 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1530 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 just sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 6th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 4th gear 47 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 19%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
