There's a lovely Whirlwind on Ebay ( ended listing ) weight max 770 kg which looks very much like the one you're looking at :)

This is the item number but I found it on Google originally :) 190853742608

You'd have to repair the window on the Marauder, just check no water has got in if you look at this one.

Love the inside of the other one :) be careful how much extra weight you'll be carrying with all the bedding, water carriers etc so you don't exceed your towing limit :) Good luck! :)

Hard to tell from the pic but the hitch looks like a B & B. If memory serves Elddis switched to Alko in 1981 so it that's right it's probably around 1980. If you can get the caravan serial number off the seller ring Elddis in Consett, they will tell you the year of manafacture.

"Showroom condition and no damp" !!

Take a moisture meter if you can as if its a 1980 caravan and heading for 40 yrs old, then it cannot be in showroom condition so be very wary.

Also don't buy anything with your car unless you know for sure its weight, even if it means you miss a sale.

Best of luck!

I had an eccles many years ago with a very simular layout,practicaly identical and the caravan weight less than 600 kgs and if my memory isn't playing any tricks the van had a payload of around 170 kgs
