Fleetwood 14ft 5 berth caravan.  Two double berths and one single bunk above the rear double.

The caravan was stored for some years in Spain and the last two years here in the UK. The previous owner bought the caravan for his son to live in whilst he built his house in Spain.  His son never used it.  We bought the Caravan in August 2008 and used it to return to the UK from Spain.  The only problem in 2,000 km of motoring was that one tyre had a slow puncture which I never repaired as the spare was fine.

We used the caravan to live in for six weeks here in the UK until October 2008.  It has been sat on our driveway ever since.  Now we are moving again, the caravan must go.

Externally the caravan is in fair condition.  There is no sign of anything more than cosmetic rust.  I have found a damp patch in the caravan which is being dried out.  I believe this is due to condensation as the side window above is missing its double glazing panel.

Both roof vents and all windows seal properly and are leak free.  One side window had to be taped shut as the rubber toggle holding it failed.  The window is wired shut but could be repaired with the appropriate part from a camping shop; about £8 to fix. 

Handbrake, towing brake and lights all in working order.  The caravan has both light and accessory cables and plugs.  The jockey wheel has a flat spot.  All the jacking points are in working order with no stiffness. The door works fine, though hangs a bit low on the hinges. 

Internally, again the caravan is in fair condition.  All soft furnishings are present with original coverings.  One window is missing its double glazing panel, and two others have separated but are in place. 

All the curtains are included and in good condition.  No battery, so the 12V systems have not been tested.  I am including the mains hook-up lead and all mains lights work.  All mains sockets work except one.  Electric fridge with freezer compartment works fine on both gas and mains. 

The gas heater was disconnected by a previous owner so is untested.  I have installed two 40W greenhouse heaters which work fine and have kept the van dry inside.  The gas hob has been well used and works perfectly. 

I am including a microwave oven with the caravan as it fits so snugly into the oven slot. 

The water pump seems to be 12V only so has not been tested.  One window is missing its interior double glazing, and two others have separated from the outer windows.  There is no toilet aboard.  All cupboards work fine and no missing handles.

The caravan also comes with the following accessories:

  • One part filled gas bottle.  The bottle and regulator are Spanish.  A UK regulator is also included along with an extra hose. 
  • A Bulldog anti-snake bar with all fittings.
  • A tow ball and plugs with cables.
  • Four pads to go under the legs.
  • Step

Finally, I am also including an awning which we bought in the UK and we have used.  This doubles the living area and provides an extra bedroom if required.

I’m starting the auction at the ridiculously low price of £10 as the caravan MUST go.  Sorry, but no buy-it-now option, so please don’t ask.  Any other questions, please do ask.

I have included more photos on my blog which you can see here:

If you want to pay by cheque, postal or bankers order, please allow the funds to clear before collection.  Collection from Liphook, GU30.

Happy bidding!

On 01-Mar-11 at 21:59:21 GMT, seller added the following information:

I forgot to add that the awning we bought in 2008 for the caravan is complete with no known faults. I recall we paid £120 for it and that was a sale price. So this awning comes complete with all guys, pegs, poles etc. The awning also has an inner tent to create another bedroom. The awning also includes a draught strip to run along the bottom of the caravan to keep the wind out. As you can see from the last photo the awning pretty much doubles the available living area.
