The price guide does not take into account extras included in the sale. Items like awnings and motor movers may increase  the achieved  sales price. Essential items such as water pumps gas bottles etc are usually expected to be included.
The Editor recommends  viewing the manufacturers list price. This shows the demand of the particular model, as prices go down as well as up. The new price shown includes dealers delivery charge usually between £425 and £495 from the manufacturers. bloody cheek if you ask me!.

CRIS  [Caravan Registration Identification Scheme]

All UK touring caravans from 1992 have a 17 digit ID number etched on all windows, this process is done before the van leaves the factory by the manufacturers,  A telephone call to the Cris organisation will allow them to check for stolen , outstanding HP, previous  insurance claims and  former keepers and year of manufacture. The 10th digit denotes the year and is the most important.

Caravan year runs from September 1st to August 31st. As an example a van with 6 as the 10th digit for valuation purposes is a 2006 model even if the van is purchased in September 2005. There are times when vans are at dealers for quite a while for various reasons , a van used as a demonstrator is one of them. If that van is bought in this example new in January 2007. it is still a 2006 model and valued the same as a van bought in Sept 2005.

The oldest trick in the book is to advertise a van newer than what it really is, usually sellers say they are selling on behalf of friend with no internet access, yea right! sellers always know what they are selling.

Always check 10th digit on all windows, No digits on any windows mean windows have been changed, and at approx £200 a go there must be a good reason, usually stolen in the past.

10TH DIGIT Code is;

N 1992
P 1993
