We bought an ten year old caravan three years ago at one of Park Resorts holiday parks. The van cost us just around £12, 000
Due to change of circumstances, we can no longer afford the high rent, and need to sell. I contacted the park at the beginning of May to inquire about selling the van back to them. But, apparently the person who dealt with this had mysteriously upped and left. They said that some one would call me back...no one did. I rang back a few times after that but was constantly fobbed off, who ever was supposed to be dealing with this seem to be conveniently never available. If we sell privately they make it very hard and charge a high commission rate.
By this time it was nearing the end of the season, when at last I managed to speak to the sales manager. He gave me a long story of how hard it was to sell caravans, especially at the end of the season!
And how people didn`t want to spend more than £500 on a caravan now. I asked how much he would give us for ours which was in excellent condition and with decking. Well... he said as it has decking we may be able to offer about £1, 000 to £1, 500 but I would need to check with my boss and call you back in two weeks! It seems to me that they are deliberately stalling and they know the rent is due in November...What happens if we can`t pay?
