We are looking into getting a used caravan next year, and going to the NEC show next weekend, there is only two of us but 4 dogs, we don;t really want fixed bunk beds and would like an island bed but struggling to find any such layout, any ideas, we can't afford new and wouldn't want to take this option till be decide if we like it or not. Forgot to say we are looking at 5-6th Berth as may take grandchildren, we can only find 4 berth with island beds

Classified as a 4 berth as the two front seats could be used as seperate beds or make into a double.

Your budget will obviously affect the availability of choice.

The island bed needs a lot of room and this makes it difficult to fit that in to a six berth model. They are also a fairly recent innovation so second hand six berths will be difficult to find with one. You might find a few more with a side bed at the back instead if that helps.
The show will feature new caravans, but if you corner a salesman doing nothing he might check the stock they have at their base for you.
