In most cases the Holiday park may make you an offer, however, you may need to bite the bullet on what you get from the sale, as there is a most likely chance major differences from the amount you originally paid for your unit, and what you want for the property.

If and when a park sells a Caravan or lodge to you it is as a ‘package’ for example a pitch slot and usually, with a license agreement, but if they decide to buy from you, they only have to buy the caravan from you. The park in nearly all cases wants to buy cheap at a reduced rate and then make a profit.

Parks of larger sizes have a core focus on the selling of new and used caravans and lodges as is where the most part of parks money is generally made across the year. The park’s offer will be based on the unit’s value and nothing else and often as with selling a second-hand car to a dealer they will no move on any offer price.

Be mindful that the park site owner will understandably take the below considerations to hand, inspect the lodge or caravan before coming back to you with an offer.

Key considerations when selling 

The general look of the Caravan/lodge ( is it looking in good shape )

Has the property Double Glazing or Central Heating

Condition of Caravan/Lodge, Roof, Walls, Doors In Good Shape

Inclusion of additional structures Decking-Verandah-Skirting

The Pitch or Lodge Position, if your unit is on an exclusive or top pitch area this could give you an edge in selling.

The next step to refer to is your pitch license agreement. Mostly just two main considerations to bear in mind which are –

  1. Notice to terminate your agreement – Are you required under the terms of your pitch license, to provide your park with short or long term notice to remove your caravan from the park, or give them ‘the first refusal? double-check this as in the past sellers have come unstuck.
  2. Disconnection or removal cost –It’s worth double-checking your agreement to see what your obligations are if any. With many agreements, there will often be a required cooling notice period which can vary from as little as 14 days to 120 days. Inform the park as soon as you have made the choice to sell.

In most cases selling a static Caravan, there will be a disconnection and removal charge made by your park to ready your unit for collection, however that may be. If you are intending on anything other than selling to the park consider the costs may be high for removal.

Sell a Caravan or Lodge Privately And Remain on Park

If you consider your options, this could well be the best option if you want to maximize the sale price you get for the sale – Firstly have a look at your agreement, or in fact, refer to the park owner to see what you need to do, and going the park route. Consider that price, up against the potential stresses of not selling to the park.

Getting the reselling price of your caravan can be a tricky task to assess. When buying a holiday caravan, you are paying a price that includes several factors such as the pitch, the age of the Caravan along with the condition of the caravan.
