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.

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 !

Odd that the wheeltrims appear to be nice n shiny white - it’s a sizeable caravan however with a little effort I’m sure that it would scrub up nicely

I did speak to one of the owners of the last storage site we used some years back. They said that there were a number of caravans on their site that were in that sort of condition and never moved. Their attitude was that as long as they paid the fees they went along with it.

We were camping on a site where they also store vans and boats. Owner told me about a owner of a boat who had it stored for years but rarely went out. He then said the guy came in one day and found the boat had gone, the site guy did not know when it went. I did ask whether the site had safe protection but was told it is too dear or words to that effect.
