check this out, ive been looking for a caravan for a while now but ie found this site its a place in whitley bay where you can hire a caravan for the weekend for 125! (mid season). http://www.compasstouring.co.uk/caravan-hire.asp

so if i were to spend 2000 on a caravan, i could hire a nearly new one 16 times, by which time the caravan i could buy for 2000 quid would probably fall to bits.
