Not going to take all the credit for finding this! A friend found it on ebay and told me to search for a wood clad caravan. Well I did and. ......http://www. ebay. co. uk/sch/i. html?_odkw=4+berth+caravan&_sop=7&_from=R40&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573. m570. l1313. TR0. TRC0. H0. Xunique+wood+clad+caravan&_nkw=unique+wood+clad+caravan&_sacat=0

 

I'm that sad i've been sad staring at the pics close up for over an hour and still not quite sure what to make of it!! :o and what he / she was thinking!! although if you read the description they thought it would insulate it!

 

So what do you think?

For a garden shed and at £0. 99 it’s a steal, however it could no longer be considered as a caravan.

Judging by the state of it I think it would make a fine chicken coup or outside accommodation/kennel for several feral moggies or dogs.

Remove the Morco water heater and solar panel to make it safe. Then flog them on eBay to cover your costs. :)

Very much an acquired taste, one we are never going to develop.

It would be perfect if one is into allotments!

I suppose that it was very good for its original function as temporary accommodation during a house move. As a shed on an allotment I think it could be very good but a little to large for most.

It's a wreck inside - needs more than TLC, & you can't sell the solar panels as they don't come with it. No bids & ends in 9 hours. ...wonder why that is!!

It looks like a one man fishing lodge or shooting lodge

 

Iit may be cheap to buy but how would they move it without bits dropping off :mellow:

It's a get rid of advert.

 

Want to dispose of something at no cost and without much effort, then advertise it on ebay. If you get a buyer for 99p then all your problems are over as buyer collects.

 

Much easier than breaking it or towing to a dump.

 

This method of disposal works for most things.

What's worrying is the description says "We built our house so the caravan is no longer needed". If this person can do this to a caravan what on earth would their new build house look like! Did he clad that with wood too for better insulation?

Don't tempt me!! :lol: Nah i'm happy with the one I did but I couldn't actually believe someone would do that! As said as a pet shelter or a hut on an allotment maybe but NOT to be used, my exact words were death trap too!

 

Suppose as said it's a "get rid of" ad so I think they'd be glad if someone just came and took it. I wouldn't mind the wood for my chimnea! :D

 

Plus if it just needs a bit TLC but the person would need to take it onto a low loader how on earth would you tow it to a site? and the reaction!!

 

I thought i'd taken the biscuit with my caravan but. ..

Aww it's gone completely now! I wanted a last look! :(

It sold for 99p! :) at least it was any easy way of disposing of it ;) just think of the hassle if they had to do it themselves, very canny peeps ;)
