Basically, you are allowed to drive at a maximum speed of 80 km/h by a team. This also applies to the highway. Learn what you need to do to get the 100 Tempo approval to be on motorways and force routes by traveling faster.

Would you drive your caravan in a camping holiday, it is important that you observe the speed limits. If your destination is in a place, which is several hundred kilometers away from where you live, the ride can be very long. Under certain conditions, you can get a special permit. This allows you to travel the highway and motorways and highways with a speed of 100, provided that the speed is allowed. If you received approval for a speed of 100, you get a sticker that you apply to your caravan. In this way you indicate to other road users and the police, allowing you to drive your caravan with 100h. Permission is entered on the sticker out in the authorization for the caravan.

Lange was the requirement that you were allowed to drive only with the approved for the trailer towing with 100th. This requirement has now been lifted. This means that you are allowed to drive the trailer with various towing vehicles with a pace of 100th. This has the advantage that you need to apply for new registration if you buy a new car. The new rule, stating, however, that you are responsible for ensuring that your tractor meets the requirement for the higher speed:

The empty weight of the vehicle must be greater or equal to the permissible total weight of the caravan. Otherwise, you may not use the towing vehicle.

Therefore, when you buy a new vehicle and a new caravan that the weight of trailer and tractor is coordinated. Typically, you need a heavy vehicle or a small caravan for admission. Huge caravans with tandem axle and a length of seven meters and more can get the 100 km/h approval in principle. However, since these models bring sometimes a total weight of two tonnes or more on the scale, you need a jeep or a van with powerful engines for towing. Depending on the stabilization device and the breaking system that has been installed on your caravan, it can be demanded that the empty weight of the towing vehicle up to 1.2x must be higher.
