my aunt has a friend who owns a static caravan, its only about an hr away and they seem to go there every weekend, if not every 2 weeks, and i keep thinking this would be a great idea, a little caravan in a park somewhere not too far away, you could just take off with your dh and kids, or your mates or whatever

dont know if we could afford it, anyone got an idea the cost?

We received an unsolicited fax at work, Nailpolish, pretending to be a letter from a "friend" , offering static pitches on a site in a nice part of the Essex coast from £14,000. I have no idea whether that is a ridiculous sum or not...

my friend just brought one and it was 14,000 plus interest, plus site fees....

I saw one one Ebay yesterday whilst looking for a touring caravan - it was in the south of france - hold on I'll try and find it!!!

hmm, thats quite a lot...can you part own them?

sweetheart, the south of france would be lovely, but i couldnt afford to get there! want something a bit nearer (although it would give me an idea of the cost?)

sweetheart Mon 08-Aug-05 15:12:25

this seems alot cheaper!!!!

nailpolish Mon 08-Aug-05 15:13:17

that does seem nice though sweetheart!

how tempting...

sweetheart Mon 08-Aug-05 15:22:59

I thought it was quite a bargain!!!

nailpolish Mon 08-Aug-05 15:27:13

oh it is! would cost me a fortune to get there though, every second weekend.

sweetheart Mon 08-Aug-05 15:36:47

yes I suppose it would - oh well, we can dream can't we!!!!
Fancy joining me on the verander for a glass of the finest french white wine and some nibbles!!!!!

I would love a static caravan!

There were some for sale at the holiday park we visited last year and they were about £25K for a 3 bedroomed one which was pretty luxurious.
