Buyer’s check­list

Your Home and Garden - - Promotion -

+ Is the car­a­van wa­ter­proof? Check for wa­ter­marks and rust on the in­te­rior. You may need to sil­i­cone riv­ets and joins if there are any small leaks.

+ Is the struc­ture solid? The more rust or dents there are, the more you will need to spend to get it look­ing good.

+ What con­di­tion is the in­te­rior in? You may need to re­uphol­ster squabs and add new floor­ing, un­less you are plan­ning to gut the car­a­van and re­fur­bish it from scratch.

+ Are the win­dows in work­ing or­der? Check that these open and close, and seals are in­tact. + Will you need power in your car­a­van? If so, you could have it wired from your house by an elec­tri­cian or have them in­stall so­lar pan­els to make it self-suf­fi­cient.
