Verdict

The towing limit is unknown to us. Please check the towing limit!. For the conclusions from the following calculation makes nothing, although it sounds weird when we say that it is a good combination while the towing limit is unknown.

The Fiat Linea 1.4 8v and the Caravan 1000 kg of a laden weight of 1250 kg is not a recommended combination for long journeys.

Weight

The risk of snaking at higher speeds, strong side winds and thoughtless driving exist. Even if the combination normally feels stable, the forces by deflection side to side are so great that it could be dangerous. Only if the driver has knowledge of and experience in driving a caravan it should be safe to drive. Proper and careful loading is essential! An electronic stability system in the car and / or on the caravan is recommended.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general very bad and insufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 3th gear, by giving the engine plenty of throttle. Faster is certainly not advisable! In that case the engine runs approximately 5100 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 8200 rpm (witch is maybe more noisily than usually accustomed).

Mountains

On motorway inclines the speed is slowing down and is in the 2th gear 45 mph the maximum speed. Hill starts are possible on slopes up to 9%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 17% to drive.
