The Caravelle's hold their value really well and will always sell for a premium over other models. Try find something with a relatively low mileage as many will be used as taxis etc. and may have led a hard life.
My friends picked their '07 velle up for £12k from someone advertising locally, with only 2 previous owners and other than a few minor paint scuffs was in fantastic, original condition.
There's a LOT of extras included on them like rear heating / air-con, lights, power sockets etc. so there's a lot to check for. Other than that though, if you're not particularly mechanically minded then it'd be worth either taking a trusted mechanic-friend with you (or similar) or paying for an AA / RAC vehicle inspection. Also if buying from a dealer see what kind of warranty they can offer, although being an older vehicle this maybe quite limited.

You could also consider a Shuttle too which are often a similar spec but without the sliding seat rails etc. and may be a bit cheaper - all depends on your circumstances and needs though.
