Although most people try to advertise things with an honest description,there are people out there that are in no way honest !! We agreed to buy a caravan off ebay,the item was just what we were looking for ,the price right,so a deal was done !! Irrespective of feedback,if the person selling an item has falsely described it then you DO NOT have to go through with buying that item.
The LADY in question lived in Tonbridge,a long drive for us as we live in Lichfield,I asked all the right questions,how long have you had the caravan,what condition is it in externaly and internaly,has it ever been subject to an insurance claim,is it CRIS registered,has it any extras,has it any damage.The answers to all these questions gave us what we thought was the ideal buy,so the following Sunday,off we drove to Tonbridge.
What a complete waste of time and effort !! The van looked great from the driveway,we then noticed that the photos had not been taken in this location,the right hand side of the van was distorted along the panels,leading me to investigate further,it was then that a crease in the outer skin became apparent,on further inspection,and after getting under the van,it was noticed that the rear floor section had been cut ,and a piece of new material that was some 350 m/m wide inserted across the complete width of the van,it had got a new rear panel fitted,the awning rail had been cut and butt joined ,to hide the extensive damage,the complete bathroom had been taken out of the van and then crudely replaced!!
The A frame cover had been destroyed where the impact from behind had smashed the van into the towing vehicle,and it had also destroyed the tow hitch !! We went there with 5K cash to do a deal,and came away despondent,how can anyone LIE so grossly ?
To top the tale the van has re-apeared on ebay,been sold for £4,800, and I am now looking out for the FEEDBACK from that !! SO,IN ONE SENSE,FORGET FEEDBACK,IF WHEN YOU GO TO COLLECT AN ITEM AND IT HAS BEEN TOTALLY MISS-DESCRIBED YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO COMPLETE ANY DEAL,AS THEY HAVE BROKEN A CONTRACT WITH YOU BY MISREPRESENTATION !!
BE HONEST WITH YOUR DESCRIPTIONS,YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE !!
