Talking Been given a free Caravan!!!

Long story short I ran into a total stranger in a charity shop on Friday on my lunch break in town who was giving a caravan away. He was talking to the manager of the charity shop and I was ear wigging and rudely intervened and offer to relieve him of his caravan.

6pm on Friday night after work and 15 miles later I arrived at the farm where it had been parked for the last 2 years, covered in moss and looking a bit sorry for itself.

I hooked it up to the truck, plugged the electrics which all work and stuck a plate on the back and I was gone, dropped it back to work as we were all going out to see our boss off who is leaving and then towed it back another 27 miles back home at midnight

Took it for a jet wash earlier and it's come up nice

It's a 2 Berth Monza 360D Deluxe

Working electrics, working gas stove and came with a Calor gas bottle half full with all connections. All windows intact and operable. Brand new spare tyre.

The inside is all intact, few cupboards need new latches etc, carpet is a bit tired, wants a bit of work inside but nothing I wont be able to sort out myself

Question now is, do I store it and use it for weekends away green laning etc or do I flip it on via eBay and make a few quid

I'm going to say use it for weekends away. Just stay away from caravan club sites.

Sorry Banshee but if you were given it in good faith and then sell it to profit out of it then to me it leaves a bitter taste. Yes I know the bloke gave it away no strings but to me it doesn't seem right but you must do what you feel is right.

Personally though I'd keep it for weekends away and see how you like Caravaning. Looks a nice basic van to have some cheap breaks away if you have somewhere to store it.

Not so for me, once you invest time and money making it better. The previous owner probably knows full well the worth of the caravan, might just not have had the time to either restore it himself or to negotiate a sale.

It was still gifted, it seems a bit disingenuous to accept it as such, then turn a profit on it...

If the guy gave it away with no strings attached then don't think it's any of or business what Zac does with it.
If he was bothered about cash then surely he would have sold it himself
