With 'normal' vehicles tests showed that the best average fuel economy was at about 50 MPH or 80Kmh - as the speed increases the wind resistance increases as the square ... not a linear increase ...
the extra resistance with a towed van or the higher one piece campervan things will get far more expensive very quickly.

Also, as the speed increases, 'aerodynamic lift' of the body shape can cause the front steering wheels to lose good contact, thus making life exciting...

When towing our business box, the only way we can keep the MPG up to 12 mpg is to hold the speed to 50. Needless to say, this makes for some very long trips. Normal MPG is about 23 on the tow vehicle.

I think that campervans are often no brisker or more stable than a well matched car and caravan, and since I have been known to bend the speed limit a bit find I am quite often passing struggling campercans which are certainly higher than a caravan (since they usually have one bed over the driver's cab) and seem to find crosswinds or headwinds a real trial. The modern front wheel drive van chassis are an invitation to getting bogged on a campsite, and to need to unlevel and disconnect etc just to pop down to the shops for a box of eggs (or more beer) is a real sod. UK law imposes an ABSOLUTE weight limit on the trailer of 100% of the GVW of the towing vehicle (with the exception of a few real 4-wheel-drives like land rovers and range rovers which have a maximum towing we1ght of 3 tonnes)

The giant US Winnebagos etc certainly look wonderful, but can it make sense to have £20,000 or so of toy sitting depreciating for 50 weeks of the year, and needing servicing like the car does etc? Older ones I sometimes see plugging along the motorway at about 50 as I sail by, too.

If I had a US fifth wheel, presumably I'd need a truck cab from an articulated lorry to tow it, as they all seem to need one of those truck bed things as a coupler, and they look as if the nose weight is in the order of tons not tens of pounds. And then the 20 mpg (towing) I get with the VOlvo would be more like 10 or lower. Makes a hell of a price at nearly £1 per litre.

So am I right that

So pleased that you are both OK. The mental trauma will heal in time.
Hope that you get yourselves a replacement 'van soon, preferably one with a built-in engine!
Motor-caravans certainly have their uses, and modern engines are much less thirsty than the old Ford V6!

Back in the 50/60s we pulled a half ton plywood van behind an FJ over road up North Qld across dirt roads (mountains and all) over which the famous Reddex Trial was run - of course 'earlier model' cars had engines with a longer piston strike, thus more low down torque. More modern engines tend to be higher revving, with a shorter piston strike and have less low down torque.

Here in Reagan country (you know, the good old USofA, 'Murica)
almost nobody tows anything behind anything but a mighty great
gas-hog.

Even the Ford F150 pickup-truck is regarded as a marginal tow
vehicle--- things like my Toyota FJ Cruiser with it's mere 4.0
litres are considered pikers.

An F150 Super-Duty or an F250 or a Ford Expedition or Excursion
are more the norm for pulling...certainly NOT a Volvo passenger
vehicle!

It wasn't always that way. Back in the 1960's you'd routinely
see a Buick or Ford station wagon (that's an Estate to those of
you across the pond) albeit with a 360 or 427, pulling a travel
trailer (caravan) with it's ass hanging low and the lot swaying
about. (Before the 'Lucy' show, she and Desi Arnaz did a great
movie called 'The Long, Long Trailer,' which didn't much
exaggerate.)

But mostly, over here, the travel trailer has given way to dedicated
'motor homes' which are built on commercial truck chassis. The
very smallest of these are built on delivery van chassis, but none
has less than 200bhp these days. Back in the 1970's and 80's they
built some on Toyota light truck chassis, with as little as 2.4L
to propel them forward, or hold them back. They've gone the way of
the dinosaur.

Just to put it in perspective, on my FJ Cruiser, I'd not tow
anything greater than one of the tiny fiberglass 'micro' caravans
or a tent-trailer. The speeds are too much, the mountains too
high, and the distances to great to consider otherwise.

Glad you're okay.

A mere investment in a 12 miles-per(US)-gallon vehicle will make
your life easy--- should you come into the fortune to feed it!

"it was prone to 'pushing' on downhills. "

In Oz, trailers over a certain weight for cars (trucks had their own systems) used to have to have a mechanical brake (before the days of 'power braking), activated by cables going to both caravan wheels, and triggered by a setup that was activated by a sliding section in the hitch - braking caused the van to slide the thing forward, then hitting the brake trigger.

A real b****** if you wanted to back up and forgot to trip the manual 'safety' to allow that.... :-) ... and forgot to reset it after...

When towing my business trailer [box type], I make it a point to check the tires and hitch every time I stop for a break or for fuel, also when I start out initially. So far, everything has been OK. I also make it a point to balance the trailer when I load it.

One of my nightmares it a couple of hundred thousand dollars of art work scattered all over the road--along with the accidents caused by the frenzied efforts of other drivers to avoid running over it.

Good too see you survived.

Having been a kid who had his family tow vans on holidays, I know about some of the excitements.

Under-inflation can cause a new tyre to burst. It can be caused by a slow leak due to a puncture. As the air leaks out, the pressure actually rises due to the tyre flexing more and heating up - this can become a vicious cycle until damage occurs and possible failure - not necessarily until the next journey...

Experts will check the temperature of the tyres - a bit hard without a meter - and the pressure - if the pressure is much higher that it should be (normal use will raise the temp and thus pressure a little bit), when it was ok before, is a warning sign - check as soon as you have been stopped for a some time - like a food/comfort/tiredness break (you DO have one every 2 hours driving?!!!), and see if it 'starts to look flat' - well that USED to work, but now with low profile tyres, that isn't easy - the pressure is best - once you just used to 'kick the tyres'... :-)

Checking a tyre's pressure should be done when cold - if you do it when the tyre is hot, you may cause the tyre to be actually under-inflated (at resting temperature!) and start the nasty cycle just mentioned.


I once was driving a minibus (12 seater) in strong crosswinds. It was unstable just a few km/hr above 90 - any attempt to go at the 110 km/hr speed limit made it feel light in the front end and wander all over the road...

Despite having a Volvo (pretty ideal as a towcar) I have "souped up" my Bulldog stabiliser by tightening it to about one and a half times themanufacturer's stated tightness, and it is awkward to get on and off but pretty solid once on.

I tend to bend speed limits (60 mph max here in UK, with a caravan on) but I never fail to be amazed at the number of people I see towing at over 70 with quite small towcars.

Volvo state the max weight my Volvo can tow as 1800 Kg(!) but with a max speed of 45. A Volvo weighs about a ton and a half, so the usual "85% is good but 100% is the absolute maximum unless you have a Landrover" rule would limit one to about 1500 Kg and a lot of the big modern vans are right up to that once laden.

My little van is probably only about 900 Kg laden.

I'd love a US 5th Wheeler with wind-outs, but where would I keep it and what could I tow it with? And how long would it take me to get anywhere?

E Barnacle, apart from the burst tyre which was the cause of this one, the main reason for caravans and trailers snaking is wrong nose weight, particularly too little weight.

Thanks for all the hugs and stuff, we're both very touched - you almost have me in tears - let alone Pearl!
   For the technically curious, yes we did have an Alco hitch and a stabiliser. A 'caravan' or ''van' is a 'trailor' across the 'oggin, and a 'snake' (fishtail?)is the condition when a tow for whatever reason, becomes unstable and starts to swing from side to side with increasing momentum until it starts to take tow vehicle with it. After that there's no hope or possibility of pulling out of it and where you end up is in the lap of the gods. In our case, straddling two lanes of the motorway with the 'van on it's side. All this, of course, happened in seconds.
   We think what caused the 'van to be thrown out of kilter (and this seemed to be the opinion of everyone we spoke to on site) was a burst tyre at 55/60 mph. Which is bloody annoying because the tyre that burst was a new one! The evidence was there in the badly damaged rim which had obviously been run on and the fact that Pearl smelt burning rubber just before the incident.
   Anyway, I hope that answers the questions. 36 hours later we're both still a little stiff and sore but I think we're both over the shock and a little bit more accepting of what has happened.
Once again, thanks for all your kind thoughts...
Love and Regards;
Tony and Pearl
