  1. Nail on the head. Take me for prime example. I’m 39, passed my test in 1998, have a family of four and started researching into caravan ownership. On discovering the weight limitations the initial buzz I had has been quashed. Many like me will won’t want the hassle of doing further tests, instead we will find an alternative. I now understand why younger families are leaning toward the likes of transporters and other panel van conversions. So if your selling a caravan today you audience will be mostly 40+ but in ten years time...
  2. That little legislation passed in 1997 is starting to catch up. For those coming into their 40’s finding a caravan is set to become a challenging task. This made for a good read; http://tow3500.co.uk/death-of-the-luxury-caravan Which got me thinking, for people who own caravans looking to sell on to perhaps the next generation, the target audience would appear to be shrinking.
  3. Wow that is an eye opener! Thanks for the advice. This is the problem it would be my first van and I’m not experienced enough to carry out this due diligence. The other van I have in my sights is; https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/195720044696869/ Yes it more, but that is top of my budget. Probably the wrong thread but which would you go for and why?
  4. Good observation. Jury is out on the electrics, slowly coming to the conclusion what I thought was a great find is far from UK spec.
  5. I’m glad I asked, you have raised some worthy points. I obviously need to find the answer to these questions because if this is not UK spec and if the payload is going to be a problem then that will be a stumbling block and I don’t want to waste the sellers time. I lost out on the original eBay listening but the initial buyer pulled out so I kept in touch. The listing (now closed) can be found here; https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163769561991
  6. Thank you for your feedback. This is a 2009 model so it’s sub 7k. I’m a little bit confused, one other comment I have is that the ‘Moving’ edition was made for the European market. I thought the Nova was made for the UK market?
  7. Viewing a 4 berth 2009 model this evening. Does anyone happen to know much about this particular model, anything I should look out for? Details below; The layout is fixed single beds at the front of the 'van which can be made up to a king size bed. The kitchen area is in the middle on one side with wardrobe to one side and large drawer underneath. The bathroom is also central on the other side of the van with flushing toilet wash basin & shower. The wrap around lounge seating at the rear, which is in a neutral colour, converts to a double bed. There are
  8. What’s the weight on this Adria? Any tow car recommendations?
  9. Thank you! is this a similar set up yours? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/195720044696869/
  10. There’s an adria adora 612 dp close to me, struggling to see past this one. Maybe not as reliable as those mentioned above but I think it’s worth a look.
  11. Sounds like you are talking from experience? You own/owned a German made caravan?
  12. Bailey Pageant, great will take a look. A few people have mentioned the German UK spec - Hymer, Knaus, Dethleffs. Not many around though and I suspect parts/servicing could be an issue.
  13. Haha. I teed that right up! So at current rates that would give you about 8k back.
  14. and you had a caravan budget of 8k for a family of 4. What would you get and why?
