Espace Towing - experiences

I have a 1997 2.2dt Espace and have generally been v.pleased with the car as a fine family vehicle.

Last year we invested in a Caravan (1000kg unlaided). I reviewed the towing specifications and selected a caravan within the 85% limits.

I have towed trailers (some heavy twin axle car trailers) with other cars but this is my first experience with a caravan and towing (other than small box trailers) with the Espace.

My Espace seems generally underpowered and struggles to maintain speed on hills. This is especially noticeable on motorways with long drag hills forcing me down to 50mph.

Feedback from others towing with same car would be appreciated. If the power is the issue then anyone had succcess with chipping.
