Hello Static Forum
I hope everyone is well?
I have just joined this forum as I have been thinking of buying a static caravan for a year or so as a weekend and holiday retreat from London. But I am overwhelmed as to how you chose between parks, whether family run or larger and prices of caravans and licence info, it is hard to know where to start!
Briefly as we are in London, I was looking at sites in Kent ( of which there seem to be about a million). There are four of us, myself and partner and our two teenage children, 14 & 17, plus a dog. Primarily it would be for enjoying some peace and quiet, walking and chilling out. We aren't worried about clubhouses/facilities etc and I was looking at smaller family owned parks, but obviously second hand caravans are less available and new ones are way out of our price range. I realise visiting the parks would be advisable and that is something we can do this year more freely than last year, but how do you work out which ones might suit your needs, travelling around Kent every weekend to look at sites seems very stressful! I have seen some caravans on sale within big parks through Ebay for example as private sales, are these safe? Often the licence left on them is just a few years, so can you renew, will it be worth it ? Help!
If anyone can recommend parks in Kent or the best ways to reduce a search down to just a few parks, that would be hugely helpful. It does seem a bit of a minefield and I realise there is alot of advice on this forum about the nuts and bolts of owning one, but finding the right one in the right place first seems a major challenge!
Many thanks in advance about any help you can give me!
