For Sale - Cheltenham Fawn 2 berth 1960’s - Reasonable offers 

Our beach hut caravan is a Cheltenham Fawn 2 berth 1960’s caravan. She is vintage and has been located in the garden of our home in Salcombe since August 2011 when she was purchased. At that point the caravan had undergone a full respray, new electrics, 240v hookup and a 12v leisure battery had been fitted. Cooler, stove and heaters are included. The brakes and wheel bearings had been serviced and the chassis had been overhauled and shulzed for waterproof protection. Pine flooring is fitted inside the van. She has been used over the years as an extra bedroom at times and a great escape for children to play in. Current Condition The caravan has remained watertight and during the winter months has been covered- caravan cover included. The ceiling paint is flaking off now in patches which can be seen in the pictures. The seating is all in great condition, however the fitted units that house the cooler are a little warped. The frame from the doorway on the inside of the caravan came off last month although wedostill have it. The outside condition is generally good but has flaked in a couple of patches which you can see from the pictures - click here - Brochure

Collection There is access via a lane at the back of the house and we are happy to help facilitate getting the caravan out onto either a truck or to attach to a tow bar. Reasonable offers for Ruby will be considered, we would love someone to bring her back to her former glory and get as much fun out of her as we have had .
Please contact Diane if you are interested, email-  mob- 07984300678

Free - A charming 1969 Waterbuck.
We have inherited a 1969 Waterbuck. It is in reasonable condition and is water tight but isn't in a good enough state to be towed.  The Waterbuck is available, or some of the parts if not the van is not required,  free of charge. If the caravan isn't use to anyone I will be scapping it but before doing this thought I would give the members an opportunity to have it.  The caravan is in Bodiam in East Sussex.

Please contact John Marsland in the first instance.

I recently completed the renovation of my Cheltenham Sable, which came with a complete Poulard awning.  I have no use for the awning and would like it to go to a good home. It would need to be collected from my home in Epping but I would consider sending it by courier if the cost was covered. All poles and fittings are also included and in good condition. I have not erected the awning so it is my assumption that it is complete, I have no reason to believe otherwise.
Any offer considered, please contact me at:

1974 Cheltenham PUKU
We are having to sell our 1974 Cheltenham Puku for health and disability reasons.
The caravan has had extensive repair and restoration work over the years we have had it. All questionable or rotted timbers have been replaced, Structural with Ash and decorative with oak face panelling. The upholstery benefits from an earlier restoration. In the galley the cooker is the favoured B700 combined two burner ring, grill and oven fitted last year. Hot water is via a new Trumer Ultrastor Rapid GE Gas/Mains electric heater. so too the refrigerator is gas/mains and 12volt. All lighting is 12 LED and a new intelligent charger/power unit fitted. The previous owner who played a keyboard had the vertical china cupboard removed, so we made a new roof locker for china and glass ware.
A Winter cover and Awning is included.
When not in use the caravan has always either been in the workshop or under cover and jacked up of the wheels so relaxing the suspension. - In general a well cared for caravan.

Valued at £6250 accepting £5000 or very near offer for quick sale.

Original 1960's sun canopy to fit a Cheltenham Springbok, made of canvas with 3 adjustable metal leg poles.  It is intact, but has the odd bit of mending to the canvas in places. Free to a good home . E mail Maggie:

Awning  free, will need to collect from East Sussex/Kent border, near Tunbridge Wells

The awning is a fully enclosed one and I have measured it at, approximately:
Length: 3.5 metres/11foot 6 inches, Depth:  2 metres/6foot 6 inches, Height: 1.7 metres (1.95 metres including its skirt), It has large windows in all 3 sides and the front unzips and rolls-up.
It has wheel cover(s) and a skirt to go between the bottom of the caravan’s side and the ground. It comes with poles and carrying bags, see photo of a 35mm slide photo taken in August 1981 which shows the awning in use.
Despite its age, the awning is in very good condition, apart from the stitching having come undone along a one metre length between the mosquito net and the top of the window at one end.  I doubt it was used more than 2 or 3 times after the photo was taken and will certainly not have been used since the late 1980s.

Unfinished project for sale...three years ago we picked up this beautiful1974 Oribi from the north of Scotland. A totally original example with a fair amount of floor rot, frame/bearers as well as rust...hence I decided for a frame out refurb. Shotbalsted, galvanised and baked it's the foundation for my intended future home but a move abroad forces a sale. Iroko bearers, new floor, insulated walls/ceiling, refurbed opening windows, refurbed original wood framed interior glued and screwed with stainless it is now ready for someone to put the wall/ceiling liner back, rewire for modern hook up, paint the outside and do the mechanics...all metal parts of the wheels/breaking system has been shot blasted and baked but not assembled... hence not towable but on wheels to roll up onto your trailer. Looking for a new dedicated home/van owner to make it special again and back in regular family/festive use. I'm looking for £1500 or near offer. Please contact Mats via email for more info and phone number.
