Seller notes: On preparing it for viewing this morning I have found a wet area in the floor, which was not there when we used the caravan last year. It is in the front right corner, under the front bunks. It is not a large area, as you can see from the photograph. I believe it is the result of spilling when filling the water tank as there is no sign of leakage from the windows. The walls appear to be dry. The repair appears to be relatively easy as it so accessible. Regretfully, the caravan is offered with this defect. Clearly this is an old caravan. The chassis is galvanised, so no worries there. The brake system has surface corrosion and will require attention at some point but is fully functional. The upholstery is split on the back of one cushion, sun damage, I think. The rest is remarkable for the age. With this leak repaired it still offers years of enjoyment.

1992 Hobby 470 De Luxe, more than £1500,00 spent on improving it last year.

New hitch assembly (£700), new tyres (I over specified weight capacity of the tyres to improve safety), new spare wheel and tyre, new Alko Premium jockey wheel (with nose weight gauge), blue LED mood lights at floor level, reading lamps fitted with LED bulbs, LED strip lights fitted above all seating area.

New heavy duty battery fitted, new large gas bottles, European and UK type. 

It sleeps 4 in two beds.  Rear dining area converts to a private 'bedroom', front seating/dining area makes huge bed. It has a centre kitchen, opposite wash room, which has a three ring gas hob, grille and oven.

The caravan was fully serviced last year before a 10 day touring holiday to Holland, Germany and France.  It towed very well, with no problems experienced.

The gas appliances all work, including the central heating and the hot water.  The fridge works of the car, gas or mains power.

The caravan is equipped with a light weight awning, bought last year. Supplied with various fresh and grey water containers, entrance steps, mains power cable with UK and European adaptors, cable TV lead, Whale fresh water pump and probably more!

The length is 4.7 metres, maximum permissible mass is 1300 kg and the unladen mass is approximately 1050 kg (deduced from other sources as it is not stated on the manufacturers plate).


Viewing is by appointment in Snodland, Kent, ME6 5QE and recommended. 


Please be aware of the water damage, as described above and as shown in the photograph.
