I am sorry to ask a stupid question but what sort of caravan can we pull with our car? Currently we only have a trailer tent but want to upgrade to at least a 4 berth caravan.

We will be looking at more basic older models as only have about 2k to spend but am confused about all the weights and what we can tow.

Ive only looked at three vans so far a Swift challenger 440-se , Avondale Malvern Leda and Avondale leda Mendip.

Basically want an old van with the sleeping areas at either end.

Is single axle better or a double?

Many thanks

You need a caravan of about 1200kg all up weight, ie including your gear. The Swift you mention will be ok.
