Verdict

The BMW 216i Active Tourer and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1100 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

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 more than sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 2600 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 3100 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 58 mph. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 13%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 25% 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.
