Jane Porter posted a topic in Buying, Selling, Renting and General Related AdviceHello there, my family and I were really wishing to invest in buying a static caravan and have picked our perfect site that is pretty new and is building a second phase of caravan sites very soon. The only problem is, how can I afford to pay nearly and sometimes over £40,000 for a new caravan? Even the used ones are very expensive! The site fees and everything else we can afford however, the only obstacle is how can we actually buy the caravan in the first place? Is there finance options available? Tell me about your experiences! Thanks! Jane
I am wondering if anyone has experience of collectively petitioning site owners to allow vans to extend their leases? Our park is enforcing its rule that you have to remove or replace the old van after the allotted period (15 or 20 years whatever) regardless of the condition of the van. Obv it is very costly to do this but it's a way for the park to make more $$ as they move the old and new vans, and in some cases sell them to you as well. They also have form for taking the 'old' vans and adding a few 00s to the price they give for them and then selling them on with a 10-year lease! Our van's time is up in October and we don't want to give it up. It has been very well cared for and has a lot of life in it. There are at least 5 empty sites in our park at present and my feeling is that surely the owners wld want some more $$ in rent from us, rather than nothing at all and another empty site. T However there seems to be no way to act collectively as we don't have an owners' group or access to people's names, etc. Has anyone been thro this, or can make any suggestions to what we can do? We'd be very grateful.
