So my new car doesn't come with a spare wheel or car jack so trying to kill two birds with one stone what jack do you use for your caravan and or you car? The van is about 1500kg and the car is 2300kg will a 2 tonne scissor jack do the job?

you will only be jacking up one side at a time so 2 tonne one should be ok I would think?

How about a bottle jack. Easier than a sissor to get up. Might weight a little more.

I bought a trolley jack mainly for stability and ease of use, especially if I have to use it on grass as it spreads the load on the ground better.
Please do remember to lower the corner steadies when jacking up your van as this stability.
