I'm looking for a small caravan - very cheap with a decent shell and chasis for a little project. Inside doesn't really matter. Something like the freedom small caravans would be perfect. Eriba pucks are way overpriced IMO.

Pm me with anything you have or if you know of anyone who has 1?
Cheers

Hi there

I don't know if it's your cuppa tea but there is a lady selling a 1968 Fisher Holivan on the Cardiff Gumtree. Possibly one of the coolest and saught after small caravans around. I spoke to her about it but I just haven't got the space. I've got a 1972 Thomson Mini Glen which Im restoring. Perhaps you could consider one of these as they are dead cheap and weigh only 600kg.

You'd be laughing even more if you bought it, cleaned it up and sold it in the summer months for a grand more. They go for silly money when the sun is shining. People with classic cars go after them. The Freedoms have no soul and are plastic and cheap looking.

Fibre glass still perishes and cracks after time. Aluminium fatigues far less. Seams are fairly easy to re-seal but it is very time consuming. Caravans leak around windows too. I've had to take every window out of mine and re seal each one. Horrible job. I would have a look at that little Fisher. It would be a good investment to sell in the summer even if you never use it.
