Item specifics

For sale is Dolly my classic Sprite 400 caravan.  She only weighs 400 kg so can be towed by virtually any classic car or small engine modern car.  Dolly came to us in a very sorry state, with two windows broken and all her interior was in poor condition. She is a 1964 model.  I started her renovation by removing some of the interior fixings and lining to see if there was any hidden problems or damp issues and surprisingly she was pretty sound.  She has been fully rewired with 240v lighting and sockets, this has been done using a new consumer unit so lights and sockets are on there own individual breakers and a new hook up point has been fitted, I then continued to reline her interior so she is now fresh and new.  She has had all new seating areas made which convert into one double bed with storage beneath and one single bed also with storage, there is also a hammock style bed above the single bed, so making her a four berth caravan, unbelievable considering her size.  There is a small wardrobe area which also houses the consumer unit for the electricity.  The kitchen area was made up by using the original two ring hob and grill and sink which is operated by using the original foot pump.    I have also renewed all piping that connects the foot pump to the sink.  The kitchen units have been built using MDF doors and new handles and are painted in a lovely shade of vintage olive green.  The grill and hob work but these have been untested.  She also has an electrolux fridge which also works but has been untested.  She also has got an original gas lamp and shade which looks beautiful when lit, also untested.

We have used vintage style fabric for the curtains which have been handmade, these are floral cream, pinks and greens and match the green on the cupboard fronts.  The seats are covered in cream to also compliment the curtains and look beautiful.  She has been recarpeted with a nice shade of mocha colour which looks really nice.  All her windows open and close as they should. She has been fully lined with quality lining paper and has had several coats of ivory cream emulsion by Dulux and on one feature wall we have papered her with vintage wallpaper by Next, this also goes lovely with the cream paint.

Lighting is given by two florescent lights these are all individually switched so you can choose which light you wish to have on.  There is also plenty of double sockets to use.

Her exterior was also in a very sad state.  We have painted her with classic colours of diamond white and grey, this also looks great and gives a lovely glossy finish.  Her chassis has been painted black and is in excellent condition.  I have added new running lights and towing lights as these where missing, all her towing lights work and she tows without any problems.  She is fitted with two excellent tyres which show very little signs or wear and comes complete with original Sprite hub caps.  I have checked her breaks and these are fine and her bearings have been greased.  We have also resealed her using CT1 sealant to make sure she will be water tight for the rest of her life.

All in all she looks fantastic and a real head turner but please bear in mind she is nearly fifty years old so does have the odd mark here and there but nothing major. You are welcome to come and view anytime so please call me on 07411071616 for any questions.  Please note scatter cushions and ornaments are for photos only so do not come with the sale. Payment is by cash on collection and the caravan must be collected within five days of the auction as I need the space for my other projects.  You bid to buy so no timewasters or dreamers please.  Happy bidding.

Sorry forgot to mention there is no key for the door lock, the lock works fine and can be locked from the inside.  I will try and fit some locking mechanism for it before pick up thanks

Due to a lot of questions regarding the size of the caravan the measurements are 6 ft 4 inch wide, 10 ft long plus an extra 3 ft for the towing hitch.
