Hi, my husband and I just looked at a static today. Great location at a busy park and the pitch is close to the amenities. We are trying to work out if the costs are worth it. We want to hire it out for the whole 48 weeks that the park allows.
They are asking £5000 pitch fee, £300 insurance for the year and then 30% of our takings as they will manage bookings, advertising, cleaning etc. Another operator on site is offering 20% commission. Then we have the cost of gas, electric and a bit of TLC on the old girl. She is 10 years old and the site allows for 20. The Caravan itself is £23000, central heating, double glazed, wheelchair access with ramp.
Is it going to be worth it as this will require our savings and a loan at £172 a month to cover costs.
