When buying eight metres of luxury caravan you expect to pay a premium. If you’re thinking about shelling out for a Caravel you’ll certainly do that. Aside from the cost (more than £22,000 at launch) you also pay a weight penalty, with an MTPLM of 1900kg. But buyers of this van, who are largely experienced caravanners, will not be put off by the big numbers, provided the van delivers unrivalled space, comfort and practicality.
