The Classic says in ideal conditions its expected to drive a 1500kg van up a 1 in 4 slope.


The Evolution says it will drive any weight trailer or van up a slope in excess of a 1 in 4 slope.



Sounds the the Evolution is superior. Its also 10kg lighter.

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

I've just had a classic fitted to my new van, it works really well however it takes quite an effort to manually engage the rollers due to a combination of the high pressure caravan tyres and the newness of the unit , if your physically fit it's ok, if not go for the auto engage model.

I must admit we went for the evolution mainly because we have to watch our van weight & it was lighter.
