We are having to give up our caravan and I was wondering if anyone could tell us what our van is worth. Its a Bailey ranger 510/4 1998 with no damp and in great condition, a full size awing and a porch awing. Mover and all the usual extras like water and waste containers gas bottles hook up. Will be so sorry to see it go and I have not a clue what to ask for it. Can anyone point me in the right direction

Wait for a few weeks before the holidays start and pop it on ebay. You should get a decent price.

Selling it now may get less money.

Post 1997 licence holder?

Max tow weight = Cars gross laden weight + Caravans gross laden weight.

These 2 figures must not exceed 3500kg. And the Caravans gross laden weight must not exceed the cars UNLADEN weight.

Unless the manufacturer has set a lower limit.

If it was me I'd do lots of googling to see what similar vans are being sold for, also look at completed listings on eBay.

Here's a search on caravan finder which some similar vans

This is purely a guess based on a similar models of the same age, but I would say around 3000 max for the van.
Motor movers add very little to 2nd hand vans price wise and you could make more if you removed it and sold it on ebay. Mains hookup lead should be sold with the van.

Throwing in things like the aquarol, wheel clamp, hitch lock and awning is throwing money away. Look at what accessories you have then look on ebay and see what they are selling for. Add it all up and negotiate a deal with your friend for them. Failing that sell them off on ebay or another site. Most people will pay a premium for caravans and caravan stuff about 2 weeks before easter, and then again in June/July so that is the best time to sell.
As a guide at top prices you should get
30 for a 40L aquaroll
30 for wastemaster
10 per gas empty gas bottle (more if full)
20 hitch lock
20-30 wheel clamp
100+ awning
100+ motor mover
Thats over 300 for just the basics that are needed or that you should have.

I would price it at a minimum of 4000 including all the goodies at end of February for the best price. If you can show a service report along with a no damp report, it will sell very quickly.

I think the prices above are wildly optimistic for a private sale on a 15 year old van. Just for the van I'd be looking 2k max.

The accessories will fetch their own rice on an ebay auction but 30 for an aquaroll when argos do a new one for 25 is again optimistic.

Older caravans with no accessories are being sold for over 4000. A search on Caravan Finder etc will show this.

We paid 6500 for a Bailey 550/6 2005 last autumn including all extras a motor mover and a porch awning. Excellent 'van in excellent condition. It was just the amount we were thinking and a fair price I think.

Not sure if that helps you or not but we did a lot of research on prices on various sales websites and dealerships (Ebay, Gumtree, caravan sites) so I would advise you to look at similar caravans and work it out from that. Including everything will make it much more saleable I think, it did for us as we could go away straight away rather then have to go and buy loads more stuff.

Did you buy from a Dealer or was it a private sale.

Anything you are selling is only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it. These days, what something is being advertised for is not normally what it actually sells for. Most people will expect to knock a considerable percentage off the asking price, and in all probability they will succeed. How many people are looking for whatever you are selling? That will have a great impact on the price.

Some have given good advice on here, check what similar units are being advertised for, but I would add be prepared to knock a considerable percentage off. Buyers will expect you to.

Will equipment included get you a better price? Possibly, but maybe not as much as the equipment is worth separately. However, I would not expect to get more than 50% of the new price of any piece of equipment. If I were buying a piece of second-hand equipment, I would not expect to pay more than 25% of the new price, or at least I certainly wouldn't offer more than that.

Best Regards,
Colin D.

Older caravans with no accessories are being sold for over 4000. A search on Caravan Finder etc will show this.


Some are being advertised up to this figure by dealers. Equally some are advertised at 2k.

Advertising and selling are not the same thing nor is a dealer and private seller.

If OP thinks there is a realistic chance of selling at 4k then give it a go and I hope it succeeds. I suspect the true selling value is somewhere between 2k and 4k.

Thanks for all your reply's. The prices that I have seen are so far apart for each other it hard to get a figure. I am going to try and be fair and pick something in the middle of the lower and high prices that van have been advertised for. Will just need to see how things are going.

Best of luck with the sale, and I hope you get whatever you are hoping for. Be realistic, but don't take the first offer you get, especially if you have lots of enquiries.
