 I am selling our 2 berth 1987 Abi Award caravan due to an upgrade, for spares or repair.

You can either fix it up, I've let it go a bit, or take all the good bits and use them elsewhere - or sell them on!
We have used it on average 5 times a year for the past 4 years and it has been a trooper, a lovely spacious van inside with an end kitchen and a large bed at the front where the long seats are. Ample storage throughout.
All appliances work, most will run on gas/electric or 12v battery.

£99 Start - No Reserve!
Good points:
  • Hot and cold water
  • Carver Crystal water system
  • Carver Cascade 2 water heater
  • Electrolux Frindge/Freezer - fridge will need re-gassing(maybe) freezer is ok though - perhaps it can be fixed.
  • Oven, Hob and Grill
  • Alko matic chassis
  • All electrics work
  • Fitted radio
  • Fitted air fan for those hot days
  • Carver gas heater
  • Onboard Converter/Charger
  • Laminate wood flooring
  • Manuals for all the appliances
  • Like new tyres

Shower room with wash basin and room for a porta potti (not included)

Clean and tidy inside.

Comes with an awning which I used once last year - works well but no ground sheet.

Bad points:
  • Damage to front edge of caravan where I dinged it on a post. Fixed it with fibreglass but not pretty to look at.
  • Front window seal is coming away from the body - can be glued!
  • Fridge housing is coming away from side of the caravan, weakening the side exterior panel - this needs to be fixed back in place if you intend to use the caravan on lots of journeys.
  • There is no metal hand winder to let down/pull up the corner leg strutts. You will need to buy one. (I needed it for the new caravan which didn't come with one - strange)
  • The battery doesn't hold its charge for very long, 1 day, so you will need a new one. i had to buy one for the new caravan too.
  • No electric hook-up cable. Yes, this was needed for the new one too.
  • No water contaners either.
  • A couple of the water taps need new on/off contacts fitting. An easy job but I've never got round to it - I managed with only the hot water taps.

Buyer to collect 
Paypal preferred but cash on collection is an option

Happy bidding .........
