Pros
- it will be a lot cheaper
- you’ll be able to buy a caravan that the park wouldn’t sell, ie because it’s not new enough
- you’ll help the owner out, karma will take note!

Cons
- you’ll pay a bit more each year on site fees (£250 I believe with Haven)
- you won’t get a warranty, so double check everything
- you’ll have to arrange your own finance if you need it
- you won’t get a choice of pitch

Owners tend not to sell during the summer months, but you’ll find bargains over the autumn/winter when the market gets flooded. Look on EBay, Gumtree, the park’s Facebook. I’m just starting a business to advertise private sale caravans, but it’s early days and will take time to cover all areas
