Verdict

The Volkswagen T6 TSI 4M aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1680 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 very good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 7th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. Maybe the engine is not running smoothly at low revs so it is better to shiftdown to the 6th gear, the engine runs in that case 2300 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 5th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 62 mph but maybe the engine is running better by somewhat more revs in the 4th gear). In the 4th gear the top speed is 81 mph (4973 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 22%. 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!
