Verdict

The Renault Clio TCe 90 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1160 kg is a combination suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations and not for slopes of more than 10%.

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 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 3200 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 4400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 2th gear 47 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 11%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 10% not to drive.
