    Throw in 6 months road tax, and you've got a deal.

    I think anyone with cash who finds a seller that needs to sell quickly could drive a fantastic deal at the moment.

    It can't stay bad forever. Sooner or later money will start burning a hole in customers' pockets.....

    Caravan sales just stopped dead for us about 12 months ago - stayed dead till July, did 2 sales in July, 3 in August. So while we're down on previous years (normally sell about 1 a month) things are starting to look a bit better - thank goodness!

    I must admit - everything sold this year at the buyer's idea of a good price, not my idea [/cry poverty]
