Verdict

The Vauxhall Combo 1.2 T and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 550 kg is an excellent combination for all journeys on all kinds of roads.

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general 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 2100 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 5th gear. The engine runs approximately 2600 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 59 mph. In the 3th gear the top speed is 64 mph (5340 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 22%. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
