Maybe a few more details would help to get answers, such as, how many do you need to accommodate, how much "luxury" would you like, how hard core off road do you plan on doing?

here you go mate:

hope this is a usable link. It's a Supreme Getaway, which is a genuine offroad van. You're not going to get a palace on wheels in a smaller van but doesn't sound like a priority. If this link doesn't work just google caravan camping sales and enter your requirements. Plenty of stuff on there.
There isn't a huge choice for genuinely well-built vans in that size but they are there if you look. Billabong, Regent, Royal Flair, Goldstream all 16/17 foot and look pretty much identical and are all good vans but have their own features. Usually built on Control Rider or Cruisemaster suspension.

The #1 consideration if you are expecting to off road your rig is to stay well within your towing capacity....like under 2/3.

Remember when off roading in 4wd the caravan is dead weight.
