Hi all - we're on the hunt for a used (maybe year 2000 to 2014) 2 berth lightweight caravan with end washroom layout.
Max weight needs to be under about 1150kgs so MIRO weight maybe 900 kgs/950kgs.

Any ideas on makes and exact models that match this brief please?

Many thanks.

Elddis Xplore 302. (Love it) Under 1000kg MPTLM so very lightweight. The washroom is technically at the end but not right across the end so may not meet the brief on that aspect.
Lunar did some lightweight 2 berths. Have a look at Caravan Finder for an idea of weights and layouts
Happy hunting

My present van would be a match. It's a 2001 Avondale Rialto 480/2
Its MRO is 950Kgs
MTPL is 1160Kgs
Internal length is 4.80mtrs
Shipping length is 6.3mtrs
And it has a well-appointed end bathroom with handbasin, toilet, wardrobe and a separate shower cubicle.

Lunar Ariva is the lightest conventional caravan on the market. It is a bit smaller than the others but this may appeal.

Depending how flexible your 'under about' is, the Elddis Xplore 452 may be worth a look.
MTPLM 1165kg - MiRO 988kg
Perhaps too high, but a cracking two-berth with a big rear bathroom with a good shower and wardrobe in it.
We love our 2011 model, bought early last year.
We were initially looking for a 302 (as suggested elsewhere in this thread) which is a smaller 'van, but a nice design, but this one popped up a few streets away at a very good price, and we couldn't resist!
Good luck anyway.

(edit: What are you looking to be towing with BTW?)
