As the CRIS scheme has been in force for nearly 30 years, I'm surprised that anyone doesn't know the exact age of their caravan. Just out of curiosity it was one of the first things I checked when we bought our current one. The previous one was too old. I did in fact find out that it was 2 years older than the dealer told us it was, but I wasn't really bothered. It was simply too old to worry about a couple of years one way or the other. The age of our caravan has never been an issue wherever we have been with it. I have always thought that age issues only concerned owners of static caravans.

There is no need to register any caravan with CRIS so checking with CRIS may have been a waste of money.

Whether or not a caravan is registered with CRIS you can still check the age of it. The numbers etched on the windows will tell you, if you go online and find out how decipher the code. Even I can do it.

what i find strange is caravan models and names change all the time, if i phoned my caravan insurance and tried to insure a caravan with the wrong age, they would question it as it would have the wrong name.
My current van name only had a life span of a couple of years.

so me personally i think the age was probably right, strange that 2 people never bothered with the cris check though, me buying a caravan wants to ensure that it has no finance or is stolen more than anything

So she was given the opportunity to bring it back on that Saturday for a refund, but she didn't turn up.

Plus all the other little anomalies.

Is it just me thinking this?

She bought it, had a holiday out of it, " found " (more like made up! ) a reason to return it and get a refund - Free Holiday!!!.

Who knows, maybe she makes a habit of this! They are out there taking advantage of good kind souls!.
