Hi,
We have currently a Murvi Morello 2003 Campervan in which we’ve been very happy for 10 years.
We are considering the move to a 2 berth caravan, towards the middle to top-end of the market, pre-owned.
We will be towing with a Subaru XV with MTPLM of about 1430Kg. We are looking at max budget of £8000
Totally bemused by the massive choices out there, but would value advice as to what makes to look out for, and which to avoid.
All advice gratefully received
Cheers

I made the same move about 4 years ago, you will find that caravans do not have the type of problems as motorhom/campervans they are quite simple so most makes should be reliable. Look at the vans on forecourts and find a layout that you like, a motor-mover might be a help but learning to reverse is a better way, do the normal checks for damp etc. and a good stabiliser is beneficial.

I think that the softer suspension on a caravan probably helps reliability as opposed to a commercial vehicle conversion as it's designed for the purpose.
