Verdict

The Skoda Fabia 1.0 TSI aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 970 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

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 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 2600 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 3100 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) it is barely possible to drive in the 5th gear with 50 mph up hill. In the 4th gear the top speed is 63 mph (4191 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 21%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 20% not to drive.
