Hi there, welcome to our listing for this 1983 ABI Monza 4.30 S Deluxe 4 berth caravan.  This caravan has a double bed at the front and two bunks along the side with washroom opposite.  Please note that the previous owners have made a few modifications that effectively make this currently a three berth rather than four (it could be restored to four berths if required).  This is in really pretty good condition for its age, though it does (as you would expect!) have some defects.  I've tried to describe it as fairly as possible, please don't expect miracles!  It is complete with a rather elderly full awning, but there are no other accessories (the leg winder is missing so you'll need to buy one- cheap enough from caravan dealers).  If you want a toilet in this one you need to get hold of a Porta Potti as there isn't one with it. This auction starts at 99p and no reserve- THERE IS NO BUY IT NOW.  Please don't ask if you can view it as the caravan isn't at my house and I don't have the time this weekend.  This caravan would be ideal as a starter 'van, extra storage/accommodation or maybe a festival 'van with the season coming up.  Please read the following carefully:


The interior is generally pretty clean and tidy for its age

It towed fine, a few of the side lights aren't working (probably just the bulbs gone), tyres seem in good order

Upholstery is in very good condition

It has quite a few features, including: wash basin, gas heater, fridge with freezer compartment, oven, grill, two burner hob, sink and decent size wardrobe.

Complete with full awning

There are (and this really is surprising!) no obvious signs of damp in the caravan as far as I can tell.  I haven't damp tested it so make no guarantees, but I couldn't see anything.


There is a split in the front window

There are some dents from awning poles on the sides

There are quite a few other minor defects (as you would expect on something 30 years old!)- including the free standing table being missing, it could also use an external clean (I will do this if time permits!).

I'll put a video on Youtube later to illustrate further...

Cash on collection please, remember you are bidding to buy not to haggle or tyre kick.  We are based two miles from junction 22 of the M5.  We require contact from the winning bidder within 24 hours and collection ASAP.  Good luck if you bid!  Please note that the caravan hasn't been used for over 6 months so I would advise getting it gas safety checked.
