THIS WAS A REPLY TO A SIMILAR ASKED QUESTION FROM ANOTHER PCA MEMBER AND I COPIED IT FOR FUTURE REFERENCE,I THINK IT IS A GOOD THING TO FOLLOW,BUT YOU MUST BEWARE,UNLESS YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT CARAVANS,I SUGGEST YOU TAKE SOMEBODY ALONG THAT DOES WHEN IT COMES TO PURCHASING YOUR VAN.YES YOU WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY GET A BETTER PRICE FROM A PRIVATE SALE,WHERE AS A DEALER MIGHT BE A LOT DEARER, THERE IS PEACE OF MIND WHEN SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH THE VAN AND YOU CAN TAKE IT BACK WITHIN THE WARRANTY TIME GIVEN FOR REPAIR(I HOPE??) NOT ALL DEALERS ARE THAT RESPONSIVE TO SAY THE LEAST AS YOU WELL MIGHT KNOW.JUST HAVE A GOOD LOOK ROUND THE DEALERS JUST TO SEE WHAT CATCHES YOUR EYE AND IF ANY OF THE SAME COME UP PRIVATE COMPARE THE TWO AND THEN ITS UP TO YOU.BE CAREFUL AND HAPPY HUNTING.
suggest checking the following:
-If the CRiS no. is etched onto the windows, check that they all give the same number. Ask to see the CRiS certificate.
-Check the tyre condition. Remember that they should be replaced after 5 years regardless of their visual condition or wear. So a pair of new tyres will cost over
