Verdict

The towing limit is unknown to us. Please check the towing limit!. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while the towing limit is unknown.

The Mini Countryman Cooper S E ALL4 aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1490 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

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 good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 8th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2000 rpm. Maybe the engine is not running smoothly at low revs so it is better to shiftdown to the 7th gear, the engine runs in that case 2400 rpm. 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 6th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 68 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 5th gear). In the 5th gear the top speed is 81 mph (4875 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes, theoretical up to 33%, if the wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
