Hello All

Here I offer for auction our (very) used 4 berth caravan.

Please note this is a personal sale, but as I only have my business Ebay account I must point out it does not belong to my business. Please read the description carefully.

I bought this back in the Spring to experiment with caravanning with the kids etc, we have enjoyed the few trips we have had but have discovered that without work it is probably not fit to be towed too far so we are going to save up and buy a newer one.  I therefore am selling this for whatever purpose you may have in mind, not expecting to get much for it and with that in mind I am going to be as honest as I can be so that I am not misleading anybody.

It is a 4 berth, one huge bed at the back and one small double at the front, it could probably sleep four adults but is better suited to two adults/two children. It has a two ring stove, a separate grill, a fridge that has been added later and is only 240V and a sink with 12V pumped water.  It also has a 'Carver' water heater that has worked once since we've had it but latterly fails to ignite, I think it cannot purge the gas?  It has a cassette type toilet, which was kept quite clean so is not as unpleasant as you might imagine to use, but we prefered to use the on-site toilets wherever we were (for the good of the rest of the family..!)

So to summarise it has pretty much all that you would expect from a caravan of it's era.

Now on to the nitty gritty... When I bought it I didn't have a lot of time (or money) so did not pick round it endlessly, basically because beggars cannot be chosers, and as it looked OK, and more importantly didn't smell damp I assumed it would last for a bit, long enough to prove the experiment at least, and bought it.

Hello again,


Unfortunately Ebay seems to have only published half of what I wrote! Don't know why, but there was a lot more information that didn't appear. So I will try again...

Basically we have discovered that the inner wooden frame is getting rather rotten along the offside top edge and down the back on the same side.  The van was originally constructed by fitting an angled sealing bar along the side which in being fixed to the roof then held in the side.  Over the years as the water has got in it has rotted away some of the frame and therefore the side is now trying to pop out.  This is all best viewed by yourselves and explained by me rather than described on here.

So in short it needs work, I imagine with the right expertise it could be saved, but may be best considered usable as something like a office/ extra space, or whatever, rather than a source of many more summer holidays!  It does not seem to let in water ( even in an unbelievable downpour we had a few weekends ago at Woodlands ) but is not watertight.

Given the error I fully understand if anyone wants to retract their bids, (there have been four) Having said that I was going to be as honest as possible I am a little embarrassed that I did not check it more thoroughly before I listed it, but at least we are only 24 hours in.

Please message me if you would like a look, it is at work ( Anna Mill, Wrangaton ) and as I wrote last time I am happy to deliver it locally, at cost.

Many Thanks, Ben.
