The wife and I are looking for a caravan around the $15,000 mark we have 2 kids age 11 and 2 so far we have been looking at jayco star craft and west ports also like the freedoms but seem to be slightly out of our price range looking at 18ft max I'd still like to be able to drag it in to secluded camp sites and ac preferable the wife would also like bunks but not a must the more ground clearance the better our tow vehicle is a petrol 100 series landcruiser I know we are asking a lot for our money but you never know so if anyone has one for sale or knows some one or has any advice I would love to hear from you.
Regards Travis

How are you planning to use the van? If you are mainly looking at camping holidays rather than extensive touring perhaps you could consider a Jayco (or other brand) wind up camper such as a Hawk. For your budget you should get an Outback model in very good condition that would be quite sufficient for accessing secluded camp sites etc. We found our Outback Dove excellent for this purpose. These campers are more spacious inside than a small caravan and very well lit and airy for summer camping when you can open all the large windows. Setting up does not take long. With a toilet tent and a decent battery we could bush camp for quite a while. Lynne

The coromal didn't work out but we have found 2 a Windsor trustar 1996 model and a jayco freedom 2002 model both 17 feet long both $16000 we actually like the Windsor more but for the same price we can get a van 7 years younger both layouts suit we are a bit stuck but think we will have to go with the jayco
