sure its 2 berth? looks from window layout like more, 3 to 4 berth?

careful with power washing, can disturb body seals.

ref caravan club, to me best part of membership is 5 van farm sites, Certified locations
and rallies... a field with no facilities except water and drain typically fiver to tenner max a night.

whilst looks narrow ish, would add towing mirrors.

Frankie would be proud.

Whether I keep it or sell it, it's totally my call and the Caravan was given to me no strings attached so I'll make a call depending on whether I can find storage close to me and for a good price.

It is actually a 3 berth when I messed with the chair configuration this evening.

I managed to get my old Lucas Leisure battery on the Caravan and get the lights on and working so I could have a sort out inside.



Then I tidied up

Looks alright bloke.

I'm no tin tent fan, wife and I tend to favour large plump beds, hot and cold running water, flushing toilets and 4+ stars over the door, (Not being flash, she works for an airline so has access to cheap deals ) but looks a damn sight better than a tent or sleeping in the car.

Now here is a question...
Was the caravan the farmer's property to dispose of, or had a client defaulted on storage payments and the farmer wants to simply get rid?

Unlikely for the age and value of the caravan, but could it have been stolen, hidden etc?

I guess if the farmer had the original keys to the door, it could well be a genuine situation.
Just a thought.

The guy who owned the caravan was storing it at the farm, I had no dealings with the farmer at all.

The farmer was being evicted from his farm on Monday and as such all property was to be removed before Monday. The caravan owner had nowhere to store it, didn't want to pay storage fees and had no tow bar on his Honda CR-V, he used to used a Discovery to take it about the country but he's since got rid of that.

I've got the original door key, etc etc it's all above board

Default Gift of a Caravan and a new way of life !!

You need to try being a weekend Gypsy / Shed Drager for the summer (sorry I mean Traveler) and post on here how it's opened up your world to new experiences.

There are plenty of avid Tin Tenters on here even though I am not among the Enlightened Ones.

Depends if I can store it somewhere for a while Rick, I can't keep it at the house, I've just not got the room on the drive and it means having to manoeuvre it around every time I want to work on the Terrano against the garage.

If I keep it I really feel like going to town on it, but don't be surprised if I eBay it because I get the hump with it at the drop of a hat
