Greetings and newbie advice

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

Stumbled across this forum while searching for info tonight. Looks like there is a lot of helpful info here for a caravan newbie like myself.

 

In the process of buying our first caravan, a 2007 burstner C350 5 berth. 

Anything to look out for or any help or advice from anyone having knowledge of this model?

 

thanks in advance

Hi Whitevrs and :welcome:to the forum.

 

You are, indeed, quite right that there is a plethora of information on here - from experienced and seasoned caravanners. There is a very high degree of likelihood that someone will have knowledge of your proposed new van.

 

For my part, I would say that the most important thing is the dreaded damp! If you can, either buy or borrow a good damp meter and check all the walls, especially at the edges. The reading should be no more than 15% ideally. Other than that, check the servicing history, make sure everything works - including the gas fittings, and lastly, check ownership (UK vans usually have a 'registration document', know as CriS).

 

Welcome to our world!

Hi

 

thanks for the reply. We are off to view it in the morning so will check for damp and the registration document. Taking a friend who has many years of experience with a damp meter so hopefully should be all good. Will see what it’s like in the morning.

 

thanks
