  2. The Argenté 642 range vary in MTPLM a little year on year but are typically 1650kgs, so too heavy really for stability if the kerbweight of your Saab is 1300kgs (even if the towing limit is higher). That said have we had an Argenté 640-6 (Dealer special - Windsor) for several years and it was among the most stable caravans we've owned, so a 642 having a similar weight distribution, paired with an appropriate towcar should work well. As with all older caravans though, do check thoroughly for any damp in the structure.
  3. I have been adding daily updates from the government for the last year, and picking out salient points in the 'Keeping you informed' forum area although I have not seen any official data relating to numbers catching Covid after receiving a vaccine. The emojis are of course still available and can be added to a following post, or by quoting part or all of an earlier post even though the 'reactions' have been disabled.

  8. Hi Big-Gordy, As others have stated it is an adaptor to provide a 12V feed to various accessories that you may plug into a car 12V (cigar lighter type) socket. There should be one or more 12V outlets in your caravan like the one below (sometimes also containing a co-ax connection for a TV) to take the two pin plug that takes a fused supply from the caravan battery. Some connectors also have a transparent base like this.
  9. I have no idea what data is held as I've not registered to use the BBC iPlayer either but I guess that viewing preferences are recorded. Of greater concern to me is the proliferation of spam emails that abound these days, and so the fewer people that have my personal email, the lower the chance of people or companies emailing me with unsolicited junk. Unfortunately as no vaccine is 100% guaranteed it is not just the unvaccinated that are at increased risk, as the more infection there is in society, the greater the risk to us all.

  12. This was published by the Scottish Government on 2 March 2021. Level 1 All holiday accommodation (Hotels, B&Bs, self-catering, caravan and camping sites) can stay open, in line with sector guidance for tourism and hospitality. At present you must only stay with your household (or extended household) in self-catering accommodation as it is considered a private dwelling. This reflects current socialising in private dwellings in Level 1. The default position is you can stay with a maximum of 6 people from up to 2 households (or extended households). This has been reduced to

  14. For many years my towcars have all been autos with cruise control and applying the brakes will obviously disengage the CC, however a slight tap on the side of the brake pedal will also do the same without engaging the brakes, as will a touch of the CC button looking at me from the steering wheel! That said, while not always the case, an experienced drivers will often be able to predict situations when a snake may occur as the outfit is likely to feel less stable than normal, so back off your speed before a snake occurs. In still air, or on straight sections of road where there is very lig
