Hi everyone!
My wife and I are seriously considering making the jump from a tourer to a static.
I've got loads of info from this forum which is great but still have one burning question:
Can we make enough letting the caravan to cover the site fees? Not interested in making a profit just want to enjoy it and cover the site fees!
Thanks
Lee

Yes, you can cover your costs. You will get a better return if you can do the sub-letting yourself.

Thanks, like I said we don't want to make money just enjoy it where we can and then rent to family and friends to cover costs.

We make enough to break even most years, or a small profit which goes back into replacing things in the caravan.

Renting to family and friends - they'll probably expect to pay below the going rate, so don't let it go too cheap :-)

On top of the ground rent remember you'll also have rates, water, insurance, electric, gas, winterisation, PAT testing, cleaning and so forth to pay for. All of that can easily add another £1-2,000 on to your bills. Include that in your calculations and you'll be fine!

Good luck :-)
