CARAVAN age limits have been called "absolutely crazy" over claims older vehicles are being scrapped, despite being perfectly fine.
Recently, an increasing number of caravan sites have imposed age-limits on owners whose leisure vehicles are seen to be too old. Some holiday parks have said that older caravans need to have to be removed from their sites once they reach a certain age.
“They’re then sold to Spain, where they’re used for housing, for holiday parks and so on.
“And these are all the vans that holiday parks are saying are not fit for purpose.
“We’re basically shifting our rubbish to another country.
There are fears that caravan owners could be pressured into signing new contracts which could potentially wipe thousands of pounds off the value of the caravans.
