Ideal first purchase.

This Avondale Argente 530-5 is being sold with everything that a first time buyer would need to get themselves out on the road.  It's a 2007 built 'van and has been well looked after by non-smoking families.

At 7m in length it sleeps 5 people with a large double bed at the front and a smaller double bed at the rear with a child's bunk over.  In fact we [adults] used the rear bunk last summer whilst the kids used the front as single beds because the seats are 6 feet in length.

Included in the sale will be a Dorema awning, which we have only used when in France as we've tended to prefer a weekend awning for quick breaks away in the UK.  The full awning [and breathable ground sheet] is not brand new, it was used when we bought the 'van.  The weekend awning is NOT included and will be listed separately.

Internally the caravan has a 4-burner gas hob, a gas oven and a gas grill.  There is then a microwave [230v only] and a fridge, which runs on 12v [when attached to the car], gas or 230v.  There is also a very effective Truma heater for the caravan and a separate hot water heater.  Both of these are gas or 230v.  We've really only used both on 230v.  Of particular interest to us when we bought the caravan is the fact that it has a separate shower cubicle.  Though on-site showers are often better this shower is really useful for washing off kids or just washing your hair quickly in the morning.  If the 'van is connected to mains water & there's a decent pressure the shower is actually quite powerful.  Failing that it makes a useful storage area.  Also worth a mention is that the water pump is an onboard unit which avoids the problems that submersible pumps suffer.

There are 3 roof lights that make the whole 'van quite light & airy.  They all have fly screens, as do all the windows.

Externally there is a leisure battery in a separate locker, a front locker for various bits & pieces, and a gas locker that will take 2 gas bottles.  There is also a 230v socket and a gas socket for gas-powered BBQ's.  We will include one partially-used gas bottle.  In addition we will include access steps, levelling ramps & blocks, mains lead, hitch lock, wheel clamp, water supply/aqua roll, grey water carrier/waste hog, grey water hose [for serviced pitches], full length, removable carpeting, cutlery, plates & mugs, in fact we'll even throw in the washing up bowl!

The Mass In Running Order [MIRO] is 1250 kg and the Maximum Technically Permissible Laden Mass [MPTLM] is 1450 kg.  This gives a really useful load of 200 kg which was enough for the 5 of us down to the Dordogne last summer.

The reason why we are selling is that after 7 years of camping our kids are now at an age where they are no longer interested in camping so we see no reason to force them and as such the caravan is really surplus to our requirements, hence why we are willing to include so many extras.

The caravan is stored at a gold standard site close to our home.  You are more than welcome to view the unit there, but if you'd prefer to see the 'van with all services connected then we'll need a couple of days notice to tow the caravan back to our home.

Hopefully we have answered all possible questions, but if you do think of something that we've missed then please ask.

NB: In response to a question raised the caravan is CRIS registered and there in no outstanding finance on it.
