...we bought it!
We finally got to view the caravan - in the pouring rain, which at least meant we could see whether it leaked! (it didn't - we also checked everywhere with a professional damp meter, loaned to us by our caravan engineer friend - no damp at all).
It certainly does need a thorough deep clean, and lots of updating, and the overgrown garden getting under control. But the caravan is sound, with a large, spacious lounge, and in a layout which will work for us. We're going back on Friday to clear the garden and start on the big clean up inside the van (very cobwebby! *shudder* - but at least they were all dead!). Fortunately, the weather is set to be fine then.
Here it is:-
I'm so excited I could burst!
More photos will follow as we get things done.
