    The proper vauxhall ones are brilliant, very easy to fit (one thumb screw) and no vibration at all. The down side is that they are expensive from Vaux but if you are lucky
    you may be able to pick up a set on ebay for not a lot of cash.

    All dependant on the weight of the caravan. I tow a two berth 13ft and its perfect so you should be ok. Just watch the noseweights

    I tow a 22ft 6 berth Abbey Aventura, MTPLW is 1550kg - never had an issue with rear shocks or ride height when loaded. May be in danger of teaching you to suck eggs but well worth getting a noseweight gauge, better safe than sorry.
