Verdict

The Dacia Duster SCe 115 [4x4] and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1290 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 sufficient. 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 3000 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 3800 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 4th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 54 mph. Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 15%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 25% to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
