We got into caravanning three years ago and were in exactly your position. Internet searches and advice just got to be mind-numbing and confusing.
In my experience, nothing beats getting down to a main dealer, where they will have dozens of used caravans at every price point.
You can look around to your heart's content and see every layout possible, and what more you might get for a little extra dosh.
My top tips would be:
* Take a list of features your caravan must have, and also features you think you would like. This is because you might get so confused after your sixteenth caravan viewing you might forget what you were looking for in the first place.
* Like a show home, caravans for sale are set up to be as appealing as possible, so remember you are unlikely to go camping with nothing but flowers and pretty ornaments. So where will you put all your stuff, from bedding to crockery to cornflakes to clothes?
* Be shameless! Pretend each caravan is actually yours and imagine living in it. Lounge on the seats, lie on the beds or make up the beds if not a fixed-bed layout (what constitutes a double bed varies wildly among manufacturers - both length and width, and some of those mattresses have their corners cut so much there's only room for one pair of feet). Is it comfy? where will you rest your cuppa.
Once you've done all that you'll have a good idea of both the layout that suits and your price point.
