if you stretch your budget to 1500 shop around you`ll get a decent van you`ll get a few year out of and wont lose to much when you sell it , if you go to cheap you`ll lose out -- just don't buy a load of shit for the sake of a few 100 notes its a funny time to buy coz its the season ...

5 years a go I was speaking to a bloke down our street he was  cleaning his caravan we got talking he told me he had just ordered a new one and was trading the one he was cleaning for £500 I sed I’d give him £550 ( it was a swift something 4 birth shower awning etc 1997 I think ) 

any way I walked back home sed to wife we need a tow bar , she sed why told her I have just bought the caravan from down street she did not believe me ha 

had it 2 years used it most weekends in summer and sold it for £600 ! Some fun times in it , I will be looking for another one soon I think

A moisture meter is less than £15 at Toolstation so get one of them. As long as it's not damp you can choose whatever you want.

I've spent years dragging a caravan around the country muckshifting.

Even had a tow hitch on my xr3i convertible.

The best thing I've found is no matter where you go it obviously feels strange in a new place especially.on your own.

Is once you drop the legs and walk into the van and close the door.

You feel at home.

As lads have said dido spend about 1500 and you will be good to go.

If you do like caravaning then the van you buy will do for a good few years.

Bigger the better.get a twin axle.

More room for the kids to have there own space etc.

And you ain't all squeezing past each other constantly.

If your going to be using sites with showers and bogs don't worry about a big bathroom. If you can help it don't use the caravan shower and toilet for number two's.
