Hello and welcome. Exciting times for you.
First, you will have to ask permission from your Park to replace the skirting with a different sort (permission must not be unreasonably withheld).
There are several companies who advertise plastic skirting, or a local brickie could put brick skirting up.
Whatever skirting you have remember that there MUST be ventilation bricks or panels each side and end - if mains gas the ventilation goes upper middle of the skirting, if LPG lower middle. Also brick skirting should not touch the underside of the (a damp proof course in the brick skirting is always a good idea). And if brick, make sure the air bricks don't get covered over by spilt mortar.
Make sure the access hatches are not immediately by a supporting jack, as it makes getting underneath very wriggly..
++
When you say cladding, do you mean cladding the outside of the Park home?
Again, you will have to have permission from the Park owners (which again must not be unreasonably withheld) but they will want to know what type of cladding as they will need to be sure it has an approved fire rating and does not cause problems with the separation gap between homes.

Thank you for the advice. When I said Cladding I meant just the bottom underneath of the van ( See I am new to all this) At the moment the van has wooden open frets and we want to close it into help with insulation,taking in the safety aspect for the Gas ect.

We are so looking forward to our new Home. We have never lived in one before, so let the fun start !!!!!!!
