Hi all, Just thinking about starting up in the caravan world. Currently have a 2 Ltr petrol Mondeo on a 10 plate with approx 46,000 on the clock. Do quite a lot of mileage for work, approx 400 miles a month. Am considering changing the car anyhow so want to get one that can be a good tow car. Will probably go diesel automatic but not sure whether to go 4x4 or just a strong hatchback or estate. I can see positives In a 4x4 as it would give me more choice in van and would also be good in winter months but can also see fuel economy is often a lot less and things like tyres and exhausts and even brake pads etc are a lot more on 4x4s as I am doing a fair daily mileage. In helping me with advice it is fair to say I will probably look for a mid size 2 or 4 berth van to start off with but also like the look of a twin axle with fixed twin beds long term if I get on with caravaning. I am also confused on how old to go car wise as I used to have a 55 plate focus that was costing a fortune in repairs. I need it reliable for work as my job involves going from site to site on a daily basis. Any advice is welcomed. I am not asking people to make the decision for me but know people will have more experience that I currently do. Makes and models especially welcomed as well as general advice. When driving solo I do like a bit of power under my foot !! Thanks in advance Steven
