I need an MPV with a large boot and which can tow a caravan - what do you suggest?

I need to replace my LDV Maxus with a vehicle that is versatile and cost effective to buy, run and repair. I need a large amount of boot space and I also tow a four-berth caravan. A 4WD option would be useful as I sometimes get snowed in at home, but not essential. A friend suggested the Peugeot Partner Tepee but I'm concerned that it would not have enough boot space for the large amount of stuff I need to take to markets. What would you recommend?

The Citroen Berlingo VTR with optional ‘Grip Control’ has raised ride height, limited slip diff and special tyres so is almost as effective as a 4WD. A Peugeot Partner is the same thing and available with the same option. Whether either can tow your caravan depends on the weight of the caravan.
