The light weights of these vans are attractive.

Think the Abi I was looking at may be a bit pricey looking at private ads.
Gumtree good too

Your right Mark about being careful thats why we bought a damp meter and lifted all the cushions etc especially checking inder the window area ,we also watched out for vans with air freshners dotted around the place obviously trying to hide horrible damp smells.But there are some good bargains to be had.Another place to look is in farms that do storage ,where we keep ours there have been a few that the owners have passed away and the families had not been interested in them and the farmer just sold them,my brother in law bought a Cosalt safari from our storage place ,although 2 berth like mines is,his is 14ft mines is 12" it's a cracking van for only £400.
Hi Glad to see another Person from Aberdeen on here. Buying a second hand van can be a nightmare. When i looked for our first caravan i knew nothing at all about caravans. A seller tried to sell me a caravan which on the outside looked fantastic. It wasn't until i got advise from an experienced person who told me what to look out for that inside i discovered very bad damp which the seller denied at the time. It was soaking and had stained the fabric, Just a pure lies. Be careful.

It was a 1995 elddis crown mint condition inside and out. Every site we went to people commented on how good it looked. Just lucky i guess. The couple we bought it from looked after it very well. The key thing we found is that they were willing to show us anything so much so that we were there for ages they were so proud of the caravan. We viewed some vans where the seller would not leave you alone or stop you from looking at things , thats the ones to avoid. If you ask to see something working and they refuse then walk away...
This is the fun part.
