Verdict

The Ford Fiesta 1.1 70 and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 750 kg is a combination suitable for most journeys but also with some limitations and not for slopes of more than 6%.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very moderate but for your use maybe sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 4700 rpm, this gives maybe more noise than usually accustomed For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 2th gear. The engine runs approximately 7400 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 2th gear 49 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible on most slopes up to 10%. Because the car does not have enough power at low revs, we recommend a gradient of more than 6% not to drive.
