Hi all,

hope im in the right place. I am looking at buying a 1985 Sprite Major that i am going to view. I would aprreciate any input regarding this specific caravan. I have a cheap moisture meter which hopefully will help a bit. Any one owned one and any info regarding specific areas to cover and what to look for.

 

Regards

John

Hi John and welcome to the forum.

You are in the right place. I unfortunately have not had a Sprite Major and cannot advise you however, you will definetly get good advice from other members here who have had knowledge/experience with the Major and advise where and how to look for moisture.

It may even be worth it to have someone go look at it for you, I don't recall his name but there is a repairer who will do this for you - I think Marg will have his details.

Hi Brian,

thanks very much for that. I have got kieth coming with me tomorrow to have a look. I was hoping some of the members could share some experience on this model. I am going to offer between 9 & 12K depending on condition.

Thanks to the members who commented on my post. Whent to see the 1985 Sprite Major today, and of course another dishonest seller. would not even use this caravan as a hotdog stand. it is so sad that there are people out there catching us honest buyers. There should be a law against this.

 

Regards

John
