I have mentioned before on this forum my preference for older caravans. Best described as cheap and cheerful they have all been perfectly presentable but had been on many happy holidays before they came to me. I think caravanning should be fun so I like it that I dont need to worry if I catch the gate post when I turn in or if the dear children next door (accidently) use it as a goalpost or the puppy chews the furniture during the night (little darling!). Unfortunately this can make things a bit tricky when it is time for a change. I dont buy from dealers so a trade-in is not possible but I have been very lucky in the past and have always found a good home for them. I sold one to a contractor who was restoring a building in the middle of Richmond park and wanted to live in it during the week to avoid commuting and another to 2 young ladies who wanted to put it in the middle of a field to store the hay and straw for their horse. Perhaps the most unusual was the chap who wanted to remove the end from my old Monza so that he could use it to transport his hovercraft, but I have a bit of a problem with our old Musketeer. We are having some work done on the house and it is in the way so it urgently needs to move from the spot by the garage where it has been happily sitting for the past 8 years. I dont know how old it is but I think its the last one with glass windows. I had someone who wanted to buy it. He was a lorry driver who passed the house every day and saw it in the drive. He had a Morris/Austin 1800 (remember the "giant land crab") and he thought it would suit his car when he took it on rallies. Unfortunately his route changed before he could collect it. If I cant think of something quickly, it will have to go to that great caravan park in the sky. I dont begrudge the £100 they will charge to take it away but it just seems a shame. Bob Flowerdew (real name) the organic gardener recommends getting an old caravan rather than a garden shed (water proof, insulated and easily moved if you want to) so perhaps I might try that. Jim.
