Caravans - better update!

Post by Vanny » Thu Feb 01, 2007 9:35 pm

My current weekend job see's me disposing of 18 caravans (found two mor ethis weekend) some of which are totally destroyed and some are good runners! You might be in the market for a van or just for spares for yourself or a friend or even wanting an interior for a van conversion? Well hopefully i can sort you out!

More Images
There are currently 11 caravans logged with the following details;
  • 1 - 'doughnuts' van - ready to die, stripped interior and most windows replaced with wood!
  • 2 - Sprite 400 - Intact, dry and no rot - however the door has been ripped off (oops) - has awning)
  • 3 - 'Shag Wagon' - very old, would guess mid 70's van, is dry but has been damp at some point, very period interior, suspect tow hitch (though solid frame) was used regulalry onsite until 6 months ago.
  • 4 - Ci Europa - OK condition, no damp, using as our rest room but is the biggest good condition van out of the lot
  • 5 - Sprite - badly faded paint but good dry condition inside, very small low weight van and ideal for towing behind a BX :D
  • 6 - 'Hot Dog' van - just collapsed in the wind the other week :D
  • 7 - Very old and HUGE van (hope it's never been towed over 10mph in its life) totally wooden interior and already onto the camp site in the sky! NEXT VAN TO BE 'FLATTENED'
  • 8 - Monza 1400s - currently being used as a store, but in okay condition inside. The front o/s window has been smashed for a long time so may be damp inside!
  • 9 - Cosalt Abbeyyork - has been sat outside with a smashed front window for possibly 5 years so surprisingly okay inside until i went at it with a crow bar!
  • 10 - Explorer - door's come off this one too! Oven has gone, does have an awning and some other bits though
  • 11 - Elddis - found this under a 12" high bramble patch, think it might be dead this is also on the list to be immediately destroyed!
There are a few more vans on there way too!

Theres a whole manner of parts/spares taken from these vans including water containers, steps, 2 ring hobs, ovens, 12v microwaves, chemical toilets, curtains, gas cylinders and on and on

Complete vans are available (negotiable price) but i would suggest that only vans 8, 5, 4 and 2 are in any sort of habitable condition, that said they have all been towed and reversed into the positions they are currently in so the hitches work!


anything your interested in let me know!


I'll attempt to get a better inventory of what steps/water containers/awnings/toilets are avialable in the near future!

Ok, yeah, I've been on the beer again!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

I read your post as....

I see your point Marty, but there is still something 'unhealthy' about watching your turd freefall into a sesspit of other turds et al and getting all mixed up....almost feels like you can catch summit....BUT, that was in contrast to one of those port-a-loos on a hot sunny day where the previous occupant had sh@t nowhere near the 'hole' but rather close to the shelf holding the flush handle....(shudder).....the sess pit was (just) the lesser of the two evils owing to:

1) Turd proximity vs drop + splashback
2) Immediate enclosed nautious stench vs 3 day old excrament & pi$$ mixture with warm 'ventilation'

So....a simple hole would do mate, even if I had to feline...dig it, drop it, disguise it....

Odd way to meet the missus tho.... :shock:

4 fords (3000, 3030, 3400, 6600) and a massey that has been in the family since brand new!

My version of camping allows for not so much food and lots of beer meaning that usually a sit down toilet isn't required much, oh and i tend to bother with campsites which have facilities!

First dibs on the 3000 please,they are nice tractors, not to familar with the others, i suspect the 3400 is an industrial version, what MF is it?, i reckon a 135 or 165, if so out of my price range they go for silly money

As it's a 1 in 100 chance of this site letting me log in, and no sign of any solution, i simply can't sell anything on this forum as it ends up with people getting messed about!

I am now listing all items for sale on the BX Project Forum (www.bxproject.co.uk/forum), if you are interested in van parts i suggest you go have a look over there!

When I first saw this thread title all I thought of was Top Gear and "Hmmmmm how can we destroy some caravans?"

Then I looked out the window... saw the towbar on my BX and thought "hmmmmmm cheap holidays...."

I must be getting old.
