It is with a heavy heart it is time to get rid of our beloved Freedom 3 berth "second home", Cara. We've had her just over a year but after a year of both camping and caravanning to see what works for our little family, we've decided on my old pal, the tent.
I have more photo's if you are interested, preloved will only let me upload three.
I believe she's a Freedom Sunseeker and less than 700kg, or around 770 fully laden, her selling point is that she can be town by most cars! These vans are great at retaining their value.
3 Berth caravan main seating area converts to a double bed and separate seating area converts to a single bed. Sink with a water pump, and double gas hob. Fold down worktop space. Ample cupboard including wardrobe and full length mirror and under-seating space. INLUDING inflatable awning which cost nearly £200, used 6 times!
She was professionally recovered/insulated 2015 before we bought her, fully line and new upholstery, curtains and net curtains and as you can see from the pictures she looks fab! Here's a full list of what's included, we aren't getting another caravan, at least not for now, so we are including our full "caravan kit" so to speak, we must have spent at least £200 on this lot!
Leisure wet-cell battery
Additional battery-operated "push light" spots - great as additional reading lights or as a back-up.
(and hitch lock built in)
Marko double step
Jack pad set
Small Fire extinguisher included
240v Fridge (will not be the fridge shown in the picture, my husband wants that for his office - but we will put another small fridge in it's place, likely a white one)
2 x chocks
large heavy rubber kerb ramps worth £50!
Water holder - which works with the foot pump for the sink but we just chose to fill it up and keep it separate as we only ever did short trips so we just used on site facilities.
Long orange hook up cable included, think it's 25m.
Grey water holder and pipes
Table cloth as shown
Basic set of cutlery included (but not plates/cups shown).
Inflatable awning, double hand pump and correct valves, skirt and pegs included! Please note this is a 260 Starline Air awning, it's not custom fit for the Freedom but because it's an air awning you can sort of bend it into the right position more than a poled awning, so we've always found it works for what we needed!
Will also throw in what's left of our bottles of caravan cleaner and black streak remover - at least another few cleans!
List of jobs she has had done in the last year: -
Gas tested. Gas bottle seems about half full at a guess.
New exterior positioning/moving handles all round
New Breakaway cable
Room made to fit the spare tyre in the front box (previously held 2 gas cylinders but we modified).
English plug socket fitted instead of European.
New rubber door seal
Few things to note - as you can expect with an older caravan, there's a few knocks. There is a crack in the front window about 2 inches x 2 inches as shown in the picture. The "Drip" you can see isn't water, it's glue. It actually happened when the guy delivered the van to us on the motorway annoyingly, and it's never leaked so we haven't changed it but you can get a replacement window for about £80 I believe. There's a few dinks to the cupboards.
She's been a lovely little van for our first caravanning adventure, really torn to get rid of her but I am a camper at heart so back to the canvas for us :)
