Nervous prospective owner!

Post by fizzyfizz » 4 months ago

I'm thinking about buying a new caravan and initially spending in the region of £30k. I would need to sub-let to recoup the site fees but am worried I may not generate enough cash. To spend £30k in the first place is a HUGE outlay for me!

The plan would be to stay in the caravan at the weekend and then sub-let through the week and through the entire school holidays. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has success doing it this way.

I'm also a little bit concerned that I'm spending £30k on something that I won't be able to personalise and make 'home' as there will be other guests staying in it through the week. Has anyone else had those concerns? How did you get your head round it and were you glad you made the purchase?

I feel like I'm almost talking myself out of it!

Thanks

Hiya, I chickened out in the end! The over-riding problem for me was not being able to personalise our holiday home. It's something I might revisit in the future but definitely not at the moment.

Hope it all goes well for you.
