Been looking to sell or p/x my caravan for a caravanette or sell the caravan and buy a caravanette but the prices even on ebay are way over the top. Looks like I am going to have to twist my Bank Managers arm in order to buy something decent.

Hi Keith, Ive been looking also I think it might be better waiting till the end of season maybe they will be cheaper then ppl will be buying them now for their hols this year. My car's mot is due anytime and the tax is up at the end of this month its going to want a lot spending on it so i dont think is worth doing. A motorhome would suit me also i fancy fishing where i can brew and cook and sleep sounds good to me lol....Frank

I think I may be in luck as I have to phone a chap on Monday, he is interested in a part/x, but both of us will have to view each others goods and possibly come to some arrangement.

Only trouble is that I have just ordered 1,500 worms so I may have to break into my holiday monies. Anyway fingers crossed I will be able to afford it.
Cheers

Just purchased and American Ford Econoline Dayvan that I will convert to a campervan next year. Got it at a very reasonable price as they are fetching good money on Ebay.

Hi Keith well done looks like you have a winter project. Ive just bought a Mazda I had second thoughts about a motor home as I dont realy have anywhere to park it, anyway this Mazda is bigger than my old astra so i can buy some more camping stuff now lol....must come over one day soon to have a look at your new van...Frank

Just thought it may interest a few of what can be achieved on a small budget











Total cost to date is just under £900 although I have decided to have a LPG gas conversion fitted and a complete respray apart from this I am looking at spending another £100 max

Just a quick update, the van has been picked up for the LPG gas conversion so it should be ready next week sometime, also I have ordered 2 new headlights as I noticed the chrome in them has deteriorated somewhat.

Headlights arrived they were a bit on the dear side at £119 for the pair, mind you that was including carrier costs plus the usual VAT so I shouldn't complain really.
I also ordered new spark plugs, new air filter and new rocker cover gaskets.
Fortunately the headlamps are of the bulb type so I can uprate the bulbs if need be.

Can't wait to get back into fishing for those long weekends in comfort.
