I think it’s a 70’s van. For someone with the skills, time and facilities. Looks like a great project. There is a vintage caravan scene and groups with restored vans can be seen at car shows.

Good luck with it.

I agree it is 70's at the latest. The glass windows give this away. At £200 it looks a good buy but if it has been stored undercover this could prevent any potential damp problem showing up.
I doubt there is a lot of working parts to worry you as this was a basic caravan and there is unlikely to be a fridge, heater, toilet or water heating unless they have been retrofitted. Our Piper of the same vintage and at the same basic level did not even have electricity, so parts should not be a problem as about the only moving parts are the wheels.
If things have been retrofitted, most should have bits available, but with out knowing what they are it is difficult to say.
