A rare and retro caravan that would have been very high end back in the day. At a budget price, it is an ideal project for a person with some skills to bring the caravan back to its former glory.
The caravan has just come to us, having been much loved by the previous owner, who has just brought another caravan from us. The owners were using the caravan up to the date of sale (having owned it since 1991!).
The caravan is a four berth layout which feature berths at each end, the front end houses a double bed, which has wooden doors to divide it off from the rest of the caravan. The rear end has a large double which could sleep three, midships is the kitchen, and opposite this is the wash room. This layout would work well for a young family, or for those that like to leave a bed made up (as with a fixed bed caravan)
As the caravan is a budget sale, it will not have been serviced or damp checked, so it is sold “as seen”. The caravan when originally sold had a very high specification, including many features that were ahead of its time, such as excellent insulation and a Primus wet heating system (not presently working).
The caravan has recent tyres, and the brakes were serviced in 2018. The towing electrics are in working order, and the caravan is pleasant to tow.
The fridge works well on electric (does not work on gas), the water system and water heater are working, the electric sockets are also working. The gas hob is functional.
Although the caravan presents well for its year and price, the floor has some delamination, and there are a few places where water ingress is evident.
When built in Scandinavia, it was built on a galvanised chassis, with 30mm cellular plastic, giving great insulation properties.
The caravan comes with a functional Trio Sport full awning.
The caravan comes complete with: Aquaroll, Wastemaster, One gas bottle, caravan step, electric kettle and toaster, and some crockery. With some TLC it is ready/complete for the open road.
The caravan includes all the original brochures and handbooks (and even the original key ring that came with the caravan).
So giving a good basis to start the project with. At the end you will have a caravan that will create a great deal of interests on site.
