Used Espace what should I go for?

Currently running a Mk IV 1.9 dCi on a 53 plate. Invested in a caravan last year to get the family away more regularly. On last outing realised she was struggling a little. This car has been fantastic since we got it four years ago, I don't want to risk damaging the engine so we are looking to upgrade. Looking for a post 2004 model and have been looking at the 3.0 dCi auto as the ideal, or the 2.2 dCi as a compromise. Read some horror stories on different forums about the 2.2 dCi, EGR valves, blown turbos etc, less so about the 3.0 dCi. we are a family of six plus two dogs so the car really works when we decide to take a break. Any advice on which way to go would be greatly appreciated, my heart says 3.0 my wallet says 2.2.

Many thanks, in anticipation.
