Ours is 12x36 - BIG change from the 6'6" x 23' (so really 6'6" x 19', without the drawbar) tourer we had before!! As the tourer had an end bathroom, our static is as wide as the total length of living space we had - still seems HUGE to us!

Ours is a 10 foot, but will definitely be going for 12 foot wide next time!

just seen Andy has put Shepards vans on his face book page
Is the plot next to you still free? Ask him if you can have a double plot for the Rivendale.

Shepards vans? - will have to go and have a look now.

Ours is 38x12 as most modern vans seem to be now. Noticed the difference on our hard base as the site had to widen it to accommodate the van. We have no experience to compare with others, larger or smaller, but do find that it's large enough to accommodate 4 adults and to 2 grandchildren comfortably. Dining with 6 means it's a bit tight if the table is pulled out to put chairs on all sides. It's just a case of getting persons in position before we all get seated!

Our new van is 30/12 ,which we had to wait for it to be built.We did not want to move plot.The most popular size on most sites seems to be 35/12 or for bigger on some sites the plot would have to be extended

Mine's 12'. Did have a look at some 10' but they seemed so much smaller. There are lodges on the site and they're wonderful, I'd love one but they're so expensive. They have gardens! Then again, I hate gardening...

My previous 'old girl' was a 10' wide 3 bed, and to he honest, the lounge/dining area was huge! We have had as many as 11 people seated in it - something you couldn't do with freestanding sofas in some caravans.
I agree, galley style kitchen was 'challenging', and the main bedroom is excellent for practicing 'the crab dance'.

Reading peoples opinions, it shows to me the importance of considering layouts when buying a caravan - depending on the size of your family ...
