  1. Taken me a while..but..solved. Took the car to a public weighbridge..with me onboard [75kg] and 1/2 tank diesel..and the luggage cover in place my vehicle weighrd in at spot on 1800kg. Hope this helps some other Caravanner.
  2. I know this may be a little silly compared to many of the Technical questions members ask. But it matters to people like me who tow Caravans. My S Max 2.0 gives me [all from the cars V5] a max permissible weight of 2505..thats easy.. It also tells me that the max braked towable weight is [braked]1750.thats clear.. It then goes on to say Mass in Service? is 1825Kg.. Is this the kerbweight of my vehicle?. I ask because the reccomended towing capacity of any vehicle is 85% of its kerbweight,and I am sure any Insurer will look at this if God forbid i have the proverbial accident? Must find a Public weigh Bridge..
