Whatever you buy you will be at times at the mercy of the cold British weather, and a 'Winterised' caravan will be a must during these times.
Also before buying, check the caravan out properly for any signs of dampness (using a test meter) and for any springy areas in the floor, that can be a sign of delamination between the wooden ply and the insulation layers.
Winterised caravans will have better levels of insulation, along with features such as inboard water tanks (less problems of freezing if inside a heated caravan), and more substantial heating, although the latter can be overcome by the addition of extra plug in convector type heaters as long as you are connected to a 16amp electric hook up supply.
Good luck with setting up your new lifestyle,
Just love to be out amoungst Nature and Wildlife
