Default Cosalt Coaster 2002

Hi Everyone,

Brand new to the site and looking for a bit of advice.
We are finally looking to take the plunge this year and purchase a static van, we have found the site where we would like to be and they currently have a Cosalt Coaster 2002 3 bed for sale at the price of 8995 inc this years site fee, siting and connection. The only things we would need to pay for are gas,electric and insurance. Does this seem like a good price for the van? We are heading to the park on the 9th March to have a good look at the van and hopefully negotiate a deal.
Any advice would be most welcome.

Thank you

Simon

to the site. You don't say where it is or what sort of site or how long they are allowed to stay.Does it have central heating or double glazing as they bump the price. It's eleven years old so on a 15 year licence it would have 4 years left. It doesn't sound (to me) horrendously overpriced but I would always try negotiating.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I agree with all Maddy has to say. The length of time you are allowed to keep it on the pitch makes a big difference to how much of a bargain it will be. Good luck with your negotiations.

Hi Simon and welcome. I have googled the van and one came up at Burlington Caravans, it's 7,495 and that's just to buy the van not sited so it could be a good buy, depending on the points raised above..........so, just in case you haven't already, do some research

ML.

Hi, and welcome to the forum, I also think it sounds pretty reasonable, depending of course on what's already been mentioned especially how long it can remain onsite for.
Please take a look in the reference hub, there's a thread on there giving advice and tips on all kinds of subjects related to buying a caravan, new, or used.
At the bottom of the first post, there's links to other threads, one of which is what to look for (damp wise especially) when buying used. Here's a link to the thread here .

Good luck, bargain for extras, take your time, and stick to your budget.

Oh and please come back and tell us how you got on!

aboard!

Simon and good luck with your search for your ideal van. Ive also googled the CARAVAN and on the Caravan Trader website, there is one for 9k which is the cheapest so its very likely it is a good deal. I dont know if this one is the same one that your interested in so heres the link for you to look for yourself
