Number of useful calculations

Verdict

The maximum train weight is exceeded by 5 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 Audi A4 2.0 TDI aut. and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1380 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 most conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 2400 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

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 15%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
