    We are looking for a smaller campervan (to fit on drive) and would really like an Autosleeper Clubman. However, they are rather hard to find.
    My husband likes VW, but we are wondering if other members are happy with Peugeot Boxer or Fiat Ducatto based ones? Our top budget is about £15k, so I know it will take a lot of looking to find something with under 70k miles. Any advice thankfully received.

    Pretty much all the base vehicles are sound. Ford transit may have some issues with security. Other than that Fiat Ducato and Peugeot Boxer are pretty much the same although there are various engine and trim choices.

    Choose based on van layout rather than base vehicle. Once you work out what layout you think will work for you, then establish a few models to look for and work out what age/mileage you can afford based on your budget.

    A PVC is a Panel Van Conversion. Basically a standard transit style/size van that has been converted internally to be a motorhome. Not a chassis that has had a coachbuilt/caravan style body built onto it.

    WE too are LOOKING

    We will have money in March/April and a caravan to part ex

    So we are looking everywhere yesterday we went to Brownhills - yes they are overpriced but they had a large selection to browse
    the visit showed us that certain brands are more spacious than others on the similar chassis

    So now we continue to browse kowing that until we have the money we are "window shopping"
