  1. I believe Delta do make “ bespoke” models so that is a possibility,but why one would up for resale.? You could always ring them to ask about that particular model and production history.
  2. You’ve had the warnings! And I usually tend to post in that vain as well but like 2seaside said there are lots of happy ‘van Owners out there. It is a case of don’t let your heart rule your head after all you are spending a lot of money on a “home from home” As to your question about discount on purchase the answer is “ if you don’t ask you don’t get” but ask nicely and see. I suspect on many sites the answer would be “no but we can through a few goodies”. Best of luck with it, and I hope you can enjoy static ‘vanning as much as we do.
  3. Best of luck! The stock answer to this question is “ DO NOT buy a static to make money because you won’t.” Years ago (50’s-60’s) it might have been possible then the big boys started buying the holiday parks & ground rents etc. increased plus ‘vans got bigger and more costly . Then the site owners bought fleets of ‘vans (at discount prices) to rent out, this was such a success they’ve stopped doing and now want privately owned ‘vans on their sites that they simply charge ground rent on to make their money. Nowadays by the time an owner has paid the bills for buying and maintaining a ‘van upto an acceptable standard this is so much they end up spending money not making money.
  4. I know the site as well. Yes over the last 25 years prices have gone up just like for everything else. However the biggest factor is it’s Bridlington the majority of owners are Yorkies and we always moan about having to spend money. I think being prepared to do that is a condition of owning a ‘van on there.
  5. Treat yourself to a wireless room thermostat. It should pay for itself many times over. For me it’s the most economical way to run the heating
  6. It isn’t about them doing nothing regards the sale. ... They would say it is about them recovering the “lost” profit they would have made on reselling that ‘van or a new one on the pitch. I’m not expressing a personal opinion, just saying that there are different ways to look at the same scenario.
  7. With less than two weeks to get the signatures required it looks like a non runner, I’m afraid. The Holiday Park Industry could do with this sort of tightening up.
  8. I’m sorry for Simon’s loss, but alas I suspect it is going to be his loss. It is very easy to be wise after the event, but thankfully for me I have always followed Grandads advice ( I know) but he said it about things in general. “ If you cannot afford to stand the loss, insure it “ It’s stood me in good stead for the las 50 years.
  9. That is an easy assumption to make, as to the culprits, as it is one of the popular makes for them. We all get it wrong now and again when we “assume” though.
  10. Both makes are reliable. However have you considered the cost of transporting a van abroad. I’d guess at between £5-10 thousand
