How to write a Caravan advert…

It's important to put time into writing an advert to sell your Caravan - a good advert can help you sell it faster and get more money. Clear and good-quality photos are vital, however so is the description of your caravan. Here's our guide to help you write the perfect advert...

An accurate description of what you’re selling is imperative when you choose to sell your caravan privately. You could risk getting into legal trouble if you don’t do this properly or if it’s different to how you described in your ad - so remember to include all relevant details about your caravan.
However, here on Auto Trader, the good news is that our easy-to-use sell forms detail exactly which information to include. Useful information to have handy to complete your ad includes:
  • Caravan type e.g. static or tourer
  • Make
  • Model
  • Year
  • Length
  • Width
  • Service history
Additional useful vehicle information includes MOT expiry and warranties or any attractive, optional features it may have. For example, details like whether there is air conditioning and heating, a separate dining area or kitchen facilities.
The number of owners the caravan has had, whether you’ve made any modifications or changes, and perhaps even why you’re thinking of selling, can also be of interest to a potential buyer. You will fill this in to be included on your ad during the “create your advert” process. It’s against the law to mis-describe a caravan so it’s important to be as accurate as possible. This also includes what you say to the buyer, and that you’ve included any defects you know of. Remember that there’s a buyer for every vehicle - be honest about the condition - this won’t necessarily be a disadvantage. It’s vital that you’re concise to maintain the attention of potential buyers so try to stick to between 50 and 75 words. This is the ideal length for an online advert in our experience. Remember: be clear; avoid using block capitals - these make the advert more difficult to read; don’t use clichés - such as ‘lovely owner’ and ‘first to see will buy’ because these are terms that won’t mean very much to buyers.
Top tips:
  • Mention anything that makes your caravan special
  • Be honest, concise and accurate
  • Avoid clichés, vague terms and block capitals
