Windsor do make a reasonable caravan.
So check it out first and make sure that it is within the allowable limits of your commodore. And do go for the heaviest rated towbar you can get for safety sake.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

With those extra goodies, the price doesn't seem too bad. Are you sure it's got beds in it? lol

When you check it out, make sure you check inside all the cupboards. If the roof has leaked at some time, it may not be evident on the interior walls, but will often be noticeable inside cupboards around the roofline.

Hope it's what you want,

Bob.

You do not mention what size caravan, or most importantly the ATM.. WHICH IS THE MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE FULLY LOADED WEIGHT,
If memory serves me well, the max towing weight for the Commodore is 2100 kgs [ and you would need a load leveling set-up ] as for the Tow Bar go the max hvy duty as specified by Gmh. The price of the van seems reasonable, IF it is in good condition, check it carefully, and then check it again'
OH good luck and Happy Travels dazren

Pam L,

If it is for sale why not place an Ad in the Classifieds so that people can contact you in the appropriate manner and not via the forum.
