Unbelievable . Could become a good starter van for someone that but where we were which stored over 5 or 600 vans we too noticed quite a few perishing on the back rows obviously still paid up though ! Nothing a bit of hot water and Autoglym to bring back the whiteness , and probably in this case a lot of elbow grease :P

I think the owners lost interest . Rather than sell,on they keep paying the rental! I suspect they haven’t been to the site for years. Also unless you do a Sir Baldrick[/colour, the disposal costs can be very high.

They could be very ill with other things on their mind or the caravan is being disputed for some reason.

This is actually my friends farm. This Elddis has been in situ over ten years. Quite right it could be illness. The owner pays the rental every year.

I keep my van in a horseshoe kinda shape along with about 25 vans and a few more dotted about in an ajacent field and there is one or two there which look like they are past their sell-by date and bushes going up the side so obviously haven't been moved in years either , still paying their £25o year fees !

Most recent caravan reviews

Bailey Phoenix 440 - Decals on the side of the 440 feature a distinctive colour, purple, and have the same pattern with the large 'B' at the rear that you find on all Bailey models (© Practical Caravan)
Knaus Sport Silver 400LK - The Knaus Sport Silver 400LK is a compact family model. Although the door is not on the UK side, build quality throughout is first class (© Practical Caravan)

Lunar Ariva

£17,199

Lunar Ariva - Well-equipped and compact, the Ariva reaches its 25th year in 2020; perhaps that might be the time to give the profile a bit of an uplift? (© Practical Caravan)
Bailey Pegasus Rimini - The new Pegasus is now 8ft wide, but its profile remains pretty much the same, except for smart new graphics (© Practical Caravan)
