Looking quickly at August's Practical Caravan shows the following new 2 berths: Bailey Pursuit 400-2 @ 1090kgs MTPLM (82.5% match) Sprite Alpine 2 @ 1191kgs MTPLM (90.2% match) Venus 460/2 @ 1175kgs MTPLM (89% match) Xplore 304 @ 1043kgs MTPLM (79% match) Xplore 402 @ 1104kgs MTPLM (83.6% match) The newer the caravans tend to be heavier than older versions (one of our older caravans was a 1996 Coachman 480/4 4 berth that was only 1200kgs MTPLM!), so looking at one a year or so older might get you a bigger caravan at the sacrifice of newer kit. Also be aware that if you passed your test after January 1997 your "B" category only permits a maximum train weight (plated max. weight of car plus plated max. weight of caravan) of 3500kgs. Not a problem with what you're looking at but worth bearing in mind if you look at larger car/caravan combinations in the future.
