Default Static Caravan Valuation

Hi all,
Would it be possible to get a book price on a 3 bedroom, 8 berth 35x12 2010 Willerby Salsa?
It has no double glazing or gas central heating, or any decking.
If I remember correctly it is a Bourne Leisure special and is not in Glass's guide, but it does have an equivalent model but I can't remember what it is.
I have looked online for similar private sales but have had no joy.
Any help greatly appreciated.

Very hard to value ,if it's on a Bourne site,maybe have a word with Lloyds caravans,or your insurance...for a valuation...

I’ve just had a look on gumtree and there are a few for sale circa 2010-2013 all over the country so not sure it’ s just a Bourne Leisure rebadge. There also seem to be 2 & 3 bed versions so valuing is a “ piece of string” job again down to condition, the site it’s on, buoyancy of the market at the moment.
Sorry I’m a great help I know.��

In reality nova01, the answer is that it is probably not worth very much. Used caravans are as I'm sure you know, bought for a fraction of their original price and parks manage to sell them on for a very healthy profit ( That's the business they are in ).

I know of a transaction last year where a 2010 caravan was sold back to the park for £8,600 and it resold same week for £19,995. Nice work if you can get it !!

I have a friend who bought new last year ( 2017 model) and paid £55,000 with decking.
For health reasons, it looks like he will have to sell. He has been offered £43,000, less 15% commission to the park, so he gets £36,550.( Possibly less if VAT involved, I don't know).
That is a whole lot better than the original offer of less than £30,000.

Hope you manage to get a value on the van you are looking at. With no CH, DG or decking and at 35', it needs to be cheap.

As rainbow said, unfortunately you probably won't get much. Friends of ours just sold their 2014 van, bought new, and having paid an additional £3,500 for the deck and £2,000 for a tarred parking area, back to the site for £10,000. They will probably sell it for around £30K.

Thanks for all the replies,
I seem to remember someone saying it was equivalent to the Willerby Rio.
I'm not expecting a lot for the van, just an idea what to advertise it for so it has a decent chance of selling.
Whatever it does sell for I have to add 15% plus VAT commission.
Some of those advertised, trade obviously are £20,000 upwards :-0

What’s wrong with a 35 foot van ?

Have a look in the local area to see what’s for sale at what price and pitch it against these , vans do vary in price dependant on park and area.

[QUOTE=slattster;171647]What’s wrong with a 35 foot van /QUOTE]

First of all, I have mis read the post from nova01, thinking he/she was looking to buy not sell.
Secondly, in answer to your question, there is of course nothing at all "wrong" with a 35' caravan. However, the trend in recent years has been one of bigger caravans, with 38' being the most common size in new van sales, now 40 and 42' are becoming quite common.

So, my point was, a 35' van with no DG or CH would need to be going at a keen price.
Hopefully, nova01 gets it sold for a decent price.

A 35ft van on our site is still very common and also being the same size as ours. I do think that DG and CH could be an important factor for many buying, but the size may not be such an important issue if the family is small? Daft as it sounds, we considered an upgrade to a larger van than ours, but some we looked at on appearance the living area (important to us) looked no bigger inside than ours. Can only think this was down to the layout, being more bedrooms or extra space in areas we felt was less important.
