Hi Garry

Have a look here it will give you some idea.

http://www.caravanpriceguide.com/index.html

Dealers may give you a PX valuation which would be a good starting point.

Good luck

Surely worth at least 6500, maybe more.   That model is not listed on caravanpriceguide.

If you take the new price and depreciate it by 10% per year, that would give you a rough idea.

 Also you could try phoning some Caravan Insurers and ask for a quote  and ask for market value of your Caravan. They have access to the Glasses Guide on used caravan prices.

Do you suffer from an OCD. Obsessive Caravan Disorder.

The CC will be able to tell you . if you inquire about insurance.

I see there was a 2002 model advertised on here recently for 6000.  17th August.

With a full and a porch awning.

Hi GarryB

Whitsun is the best selling time for both private sales and dealers.

At this time of the year Dealers don't really want to take expensive caravans in which they are unlikely to sell until Spring and that might deflate what they'll offer you unless of course they're keen to sell you a much more expensive van.

It's a good time to buy a new caravan though with delivery around March/April. The dealer has a sale, doesn't hold your caravan in stock over winter and can more easily and quickly get it off his books in the Spring. So he can afford to be a bit more generous.

I did my last deal in October for a new caravan with delivery in March. We agreed a trade in price for the old caravan and a cash price for the new caravan if I sold privately. I managed to sell it privately within a couple of months.
