Agree with you on many points.Towing a van is a piece of piss. No hassle at all.
To anyone thinking about a static, be prepared to have your wallet well and truly rogered.
They have you over a barrel and just wait till you say you want rid of it, you basically are forced to hand it over for pennies.
Would never consider one. No way.
Same thing happened on a site near me in North Yorkshire.Yup
People I know are being kicked off a site in Peebles. They are being charged £500 for them to drag their old vans to the gate to be uplifted as hauliers aren't allowed to collect from site.
They want the pitches for new chalets etc so are hoofing them off.
