You could have a look on here and see what the asking prices are.

We used this when I was looking and I found it close enough to what was being asked.

http://www.caravanbu...sicversion.html Try this too.
Lists some models that the other guide doesn't. Neither guide covers trade-in values so be prepared to get offered substantially less in p/x.

I would carefully research this in depth as there are many threads on consumer forums about people who have been conned by various site owners. We were going to go down this route many years ago until we found out that we would have to sell the caravan back to the park owner. Friends of ours paid £30,000 for a caravan and were then "forced" to leave and got paid £12,000 for the caravan 2 years later.

We changed our static for a tourer.
Site fees were increased to almost £4,800 per year.
As we sub-let it,all electric/gas appliances had to be checked annualy......cant remember the actual cost of this.
Would have had to replace the van with a brand new one after 12 years......had to sell the old one back to site owners and purchase a new one from them.
They introduced a new rule that all wooden sheds had to be replaced with metal ones.
All fencing had to be repainted if not in certain colours.
Money....money....money.........glad we got rid :wacko:

Very True.
We have a local site run by a, shall we say a group.
The residents can't afford to sell up yet want to leave. I hope it is not widespread dilema for static owners.
Before I went down that road I would need to speak to a resident or two for feedback of site conditions.

Also if you don't get on with your neighbours you are stuck with them. At least with a touring caravan you can move it.
