I am pleased to be able to bring our forum back on-line. The reasons for me taking it away have not all been resolved, but the situation now is that I am able to bring it back to see if it still has a future. I will keep it live as long as there is a demand for it and that demand with be determined by its usage.

Unfortunately, I am not an owner anymore and it is very unlikely that I will be again, this means that I no longer have the ability to keep the content of the forum up to date and ensure the information given is accurate; that is something that will now depend on the forum members.

The forum will be maintained through Redstick Enterprises, but I will still monitor the forum's function, content and membership applications.

Buying a Caravan

Post by cpr0305 » 1 year ago

Hi All,

I am wanting to buy a used Caravan for probably either Primrose Valley or Thorpe Park, Does the Caravan have to be purchased through Haven themselves? Obviously through Haven I'm looking about £20k (with the rest of the 2016 fees included) for something like a 2010/2011 ABI Horizon, whereas a purchase from somebody offsite Ive seen a 2011 ABI St David for £13k.
Regards
Chris

Hi,

The caravan does not have to be purchased through Haven, but if you buy from an existing owner there will be a 12.5% transfer fee payable to Haven. Some owners pay this fee and some expect the buyer to pay it.

Also if you buy through an owner you won't be entitled to the discount on site fees, it is £235 year at Thorpe Park.

We have just purchased at Thorpe Park and we looked at both new and used. In the end we went for a 2016 Abi Horizon with double glazing and blown air heating. Cost was approx £26,000 including fees etc for this year, but if you go through the help to buy scheme this is reduced by £6,000 and you have to join the Haven sublet scheme so that they can recoup this over 3 years.

We also have peace of mind with a 5 year guarantee as the caravan is new.

Hope this is of some help.

Kate :big_grin:

Thanks for that Kate, very helpful, that doesn't seem a bad price for a 2016 model, may have to take a little trip to Thorpe Park.

Chris.

A 2016 Horizon on Primrose Valley Holiday Park is £30,300.00
Theyve substantially raided them this year from just over £26k last year.

They're chucking 3 year old Windermere's out at Just over £33k which are a beautiful van and will vastly enhance your holiday home pleasure over the Horizon.

The 2011 ABI St David I have seen is from a Private Caravan Trader, would this still be able to be put on a Haven Site or would they not allow this?

Regards
Chris.

With the odd rare exception, you have more chance of winning gold in the European Fog Platting Championships.

That said, don't ask, don't get.
