May sound a silly question but how am I best going about getting rid of an old caravan?

Do people take old caravans in the same way as the do old cars? I'm not expecting anything for her as she is old, some damp in the bathroom and doesnt have any water heater or fridge.

The one thing we would like to get something for is the motor mover. It cost quite a bit to get installed but in the 18 months its been fitted its only been used a handful of times. Seen several ads on ebay where the same model has sold for 200+ and its been older than ours. Only problem is how do we remove it without any means of jacking up the caravan get get underneath.

Any help & advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Best way probably would be to dismantle the whole caravan, scrap guys will take the chassis and cladding that's if you cant find anyone who wants it, maybe someone on allotments or somebody with a bit of spare land could use it for something.

You could advertise the Motor Mover on e-bay with 'Free Caravan' that way the new owner of the motor mover gets the problem of getting rid of the van (they are worth a bit as scrap as the cladding on older vans is ally as is the chassis). there are also a number of sites who offer to purchase or dispose of old caravans).

Hi. I work with the Air Cadets in Wallasey and we are looking for an old caravan to convert for the cadets to use on events. If you would like us to take it then please send me an email with details to freegledave321@yahoo.co.uk . It doesnt matter about internal condition as we would strip it out to convert smile Thank you in advance. Dave
