    you mention CrossClimates. I ran those on my last car and thought them superb. The hype around them really is true - for me they were better than the regular premium brand tyres I have used and better than the Conti Winter Tyres I have used.
    Definately worth considering if available in your size and load rating - and they are recognised as Winter Tyres as well in those countries that mandate them in Winter time.

    I run crossclimates on my 4x4, very good allrounder, would definatly consider them on the van if they are available in correct size/load index.

    Crossclimate are now included in the Agilis range, must be worth considering.
    Have crossclimate on car, but BFGoodrich AT's on van.

    I have also used Michelin cross climates on my 2WD car - just fitted my second set a month ago. They are brilliant tyres, well worth the extra cost, and unbelievably good in wet or snow conditions. I tend to drive 'enthusiastically' and in the wet they give a good level of confidence.
    I use BF Goodrich All terrains on the 4WD campervan - again, excellent tyres but a bit pricey.

    The load rating is the last number on the sidewall before the speed rating letter.
    You can look all these up easily to ensure compliance but I've seen some tyres rated 109/107S. So are they 109 or 107 load rating? Confusing.

    Got back from Holland and Ive changed the tyres to Pirelli Campers. Great wet weather grip, pretty quiet and a decent price. Whilst I did check the sizes and wear what I didn't check was the age. When I did I was shocked....8 years old!. Bloody hell! They looked ok to be honest, no cracks or anything but the worn fronts were rubbish in the rain. The new ones grip like the wife to a 20 note. Still unsure why the last owner put very cheap tyres on a expensive motorhome but we all have our reasons.
