Verdict

The Suzuki Swift 1.0 Boosterjet and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1000 kg is a combination just suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations.

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 more than sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 4th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 3000 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 4200 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 even on steep slopes up to 16%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 29% to drive.
