Number of useful calculations

Verdict as the caravan would not be legaly too heavy

The Citroen C3 PureTech 82 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 920 kg is a combination suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations and not for slopes of more than 11%.

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 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 nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3700 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 most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 2th gear with 50 mph up hill. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 11%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 20% to drive.

Results

The main details in a list. Ideal for comparing different combinations with one another, for example your present with a new one.
