John Guest Speedfit most likely.   

Pipe outside diameter needs measuring if new connectors are needed. (22mm, 15mm,  10mm etc.,.)

 

Big issue will be scored / damaged plastic pipes so the o-rings in the fittings cannot re-seal when reassembled.  If no slack in the pipework it needs a new section.

 

Other pushfit connector brands may work, but dimensions are often different, and some need special removal tools, if that matters.

Can you take another photo outside or under a bright light?  Is there any writing on it?  (could be very small.)  :)

I do not think that it is a single, standard fitting.  It is probably two push fit elbows with a short length of pipe in between.  You need to push back the sleeve to release the pipe.

 

  Some brands have the size shown on the fittings if you look closely.  Otherwise, as has been suggested, you need to measure the outside diameter of the pipes.

 

Screwfix stock them down to 10mm as shown here.

You have two fitting there. A female to female push fit elbow and a female to male elbow (they've been pushed together)

 

As said above you need to check the pipe dimensions as most caravan plumbing uses 12mm fittings rather than standard 15mm as used in houses.

A pound to a pinch of salt it would stop leaking if you dismantled it, cleaned it and greased it with some vaseline or KY jelly. These push-fit connectors rarely fail.

Oh yes they do! Especially if the original pipe work is cut too short, resulting in road stress loosening the connection = a leak.

Fitting shown in OP's post could not suffer from short pipework!  But I can't see if it's a compression fitting or a push fit.

It could have come apart if the ring at the end of the fitting was not pulled out to lock the pipe in place or the pipe was not pushed fully in to the fitting. When you need to remove a fitting from the pipe this ring has to be pushed in to the fitting. Some fittings have a toothed metal insert that grips the pipe and if you put a finger in the fitting be careful it does not cause cuts.

 

I would check the pipe is not damaged and if ok then put the fitting back on and check for leaks. Whilst there are several makes of this type of push fitting, you can get ones that look like yours at a caravan shop. Other makes can be bought at plumbers/Toolstation/B&Q/ etc but these will be 15 mm. Some makes (not yours) have a section that is twisted to lock the pipe in place. These other 15 mm makes will need a pipe insert put in the end of the pipe so it does not deform, the insert has to match the make of pipe.
