  1. Hi All, I’m in a big dilemma and I’m hoping to get some advice here. We have two young children 1 and 3 years old, and money isn’t as it used to be with nursery fees mortgage etc. we was mortgage free and child free for a few years, children came then a bigger house and a mortgage. I know my children will love caravanning and I also know you don’t have to travel 100s of miles to make them happy. My questions are. My car without towing does around 50-60 mpg (diesel), would I be right in saying that will be cut by 50% with a caravan on the back I have a Mercedes E class 2017, I know this can tow 2100kg so I’m looking at caravans max 1700kg does this sound ok?

I know my children will love caravanning and I also know you don’t have to travel 100s of miles to make them happy. My questions are. Have you personally ever regretted buying your caravan? If so why. What is the yearly cost of the upkeep, storage, insurance, service, I will need to put my caravan in storage. I have a Mercedes E class 2017, I know this can tow 2100kg so I’m looking at caravans max 1700kg does this sound ok? When you take you caravan to EU is there any way of getting cheaper travel. My car without towing does around 50-60 mpg (diesel), would I be right in saying that will be cut by 50% with a caravan on the back. I’m looking at getting a 4 bed van with fixed single beds at the rear with wash room in the middle area, I have seen these on the internet but I think it’s a new design and out of my price range, am I right. Will I get a good van that will last say 10 years spending £8/10,000 How much is a reasonable price for a caravan pitch on a site that has entertainment for the kids with electric hook up. Is Alko caravan control a must? I need to get this straight in my head, I have been watching lots of you tube videos, and I really think this is for my. Any comments of all or some of the above would be helpful.
  4. Hi all, we we have just joined this web site in hope of gaining from the experience of others. we are old new parents with a 3 year old princess and a 9 month old boy, as you would appreciate it expense going on holidays as of next year when we can only go in the school holidays. My car is a Mercedes 2017 E class 2ltr 5 door car so it should be good for towing a 4 berth van, we are looking at getting a used van with bunk beds (this is next year not now) looking at paying around £4000 I have seen one on eBay with a ton of extras for this price, Unfortunately I can’t store the van at my home location Dartford so I’m trying to find the cost of storage around this area within 30 miles or so, if someone could let me know the average price this would cost per year have searched the internet but you need to fill in forms and give your van length. We have looked at the price of staying on farms around the uk and I'm seeing prices of around 15 to 20 ponds per night. any advice would be great, what’s you thoughts on the low level van that you pop up when on site. thanks Beara
