Verdict

The maximum train weight is exceeded by 25 kg! For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while actually legally overweight.

The Renault Clio TCe 120 Estate and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1200 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 fairly good. 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 2300 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2900 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 60 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 18%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 16% not to drive.
