    i pulled a van with my vec c 06 plate 1.8 design,i now tow with a vec c 08 plate sri 150 diesel.the kerbweight on my 1.8 petrol was about 1400,my diesel will tow 1600 kg.be carefull though because different vans have a different weight,just coz its a little van it doesnt mean its light,bailey are normally light,the van will have a plate on it telling you its weight.if the van is around 1100kg or under you shud be fine,it will say for example 900kg unladen and 1100kg laden.the extra 200 kg is for your stuff you take,eg gas bottles, awning,clothes,etc.depending how much you want to spend a abi maruader are light and 2 or 4 berth,get a decent one for around 800-1200 quid.my elddis i had was 16 ft and weighed 1100kg laden and i towed it with my 1800 vec c petrol.i now have a compass and my diesel tows brill with the extra power.
