Default Advice on selling

We are considering selling our van, it's on a Haven site. Our children are now teenagers and there is not enough to do on the site for them and they don't want to visit.

Last year we looked into moving the van to a livelier site but it is too old. We visited a few other sites that said they offered bring-ons but other than one site which wanted a huge amount to move the van to them (including fees to hire a crane as it would need to be craned onto the pitch) we didn't find a site that would take it - although of course they all offered us an upgrade, and we don't have the money to upgrade. The Part ex offered was only a couple of thousand against our van so it left us thinking as it's not worth much we might as well keep it. (It's a 2007 Willerby Richmond)

We didn't use the van ourselves at all last season and the letting fees did not cover our site fees.

We have just paid the site fees in full before Xmas, but have thought about it over Christmas and think we would be better cutting our losses and selling. I'm now wishing we hadn't paid the site fees as I'm pretty sure we won't get them all back if we do sell.

We know we'd probably get a better deal selling privately but are a bit worried about how we would be paid and how secure the payment would be, and then the red tape with the site with the 15% etc.

Any advice please?

are you allowed to sell privately ? on our site we can only sell private if its under 10 years old over 10 has got to be sold to the site only, regarding payment nothing is handed over till you have the money but its normally the site who deals with it takes their cut and any thing u owe for electric ect and pays whats left
