Even if it is a bit damp, at £500 it will give someone several cheap holidays.

Did you get a NCC service sheet and damp report? I've seen some a lot worse repaired, then sold for a goodprice. Caravanning is going ballistic and anything will sell.

 

Here is a £24000 van, less than a year old..

The only ones I really saw being written off if there were still £££ to be made were Lunars, the body breaks away from the chassis and the whole caravan basically has to come apart to repair it.

 

Post your van up on the self build campervanners bit on Facebook. People are always looking for old vans to rip the insides out..

Yes got a service sheet full of defects, most of them rectified now apart from the biggies. It’s mainly the front corners. I’m sure someone with half a brain cell about wood work could easily rectify it.

Hell if I had the money I'd buy that. Ideal project with not a lot of work overall needed

Very little work, just hack out the rotted part and back your trike in until your front wheel's where the hitch would be, add a ratchet strap and you're a happy camper.

Shiters price £600 quid, will take my gas bottle and battery off for my new van though... I’ll chuck in the full awning with inner tent and anex. You know you want it.

Decided to chuck it on eBay with the imminent arrival of the new caravan, don’t really want two on the driveway so it goes to the highest bidder. What are the chances I get royally fucked over and messed about? Quite high possibly. Let’s see what happens.
