  1. This is so helpful thank you so much. Just to clarify the Park has stipulated we buy the new van through one caravan sales /distributed company NOT the manufacturer direct. Therefore we are restricted to their vans and their prices. Thank you both very much for your responses. We have the RRPs from various: sources including manufacturers on the internet such as ABI. I understand that there are additional costs such as siting fees, delivery and charges by the park itself which all vary but these are additional costs that we know we will have to pay. Our concern at this point is only regarding the purchase price of the van and making sure that we are paying a fair price. If the park stipulates that you can only purchase a new van from one caravan sales company then we just want to make sure the costs are transparent. Thanks for the advice to read any contract throughly will certainly take this on board. I will also look through CT for the horror stories you mention in order to help us avoid similar.

  3. Hello, looking to purchase a brand new static- rules of the site dictate it has to be new and over a certain purchase price. Finding if difficult to get clear and straight answers regarding price, transparency is proving difficult to gain. We are finding the asking price is often significantly more than the RRP and can’t seem to get clear responses on what makes up the difference - double glazing and central heating are all fitted as standard in the ones we are looking at so the additional costs seem to be for optional extras such as dishwasher, washing machine etc but these do not make up the huge difference. We are thinking that there must be ‘hidden’ costs such as commission or deals with park owners that are driving the prices up. We also seem to be buying at the worst time as demand is high and have been told that manufactures can’t keep up with the demand so caravan sales companies are able to name their price. Being new to all this any help or advice would be appreciated so that we can navigate the minefield. Thank you
