You`ll need a full service (bearings, tyres, lights, internal electrics, gas etc), but before you splash out, what are you going tow it with and is it up to the task?

You wouldn`t credit the number of people that buy vans only to find they haven`t got the car to safely do the job, make sure this is OK before going any further.

[thanks angus for the advice, the caravan is 980 kg gross, and have a volvo v40 1. 8, so no problem as i have been towing a sprite musketeer 900kg, as no service no deal

Hi,

I'm with Angus, the 'van would need a service. I don't know about in your area but there are some mobile service engineers about the country,

Regards,

Ian.
