Hi, what size of tyre is on your van, I can see that 13" is the rim but need the width and aspect ratio. This may help Tyre pressure

The figures on the side of the tyre will help for example 165 55 R13 94 M. As your tyre advises a pressure of 65psi it seems you will have a light commercial tyre fitted.

The 65 psi on the side of the tyre is the MAXIMUM pressure allowed in that tyre and NOT the recommended pressure!!

I very much doubt if the pressure required will be higher than 45 psi.

The links given on here are way off for my van.

The links say 60+ PSI where my manual states 42PSI.

My vans also 1050kg in weight with 175x13 tyres.

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

According to an Elddis brochure from this site; https://www.nationwidecaravanninguk.com The recommended tyre pressure for your caravan is 36psi. The same as my 1992 Elddis Wisp.
