    Default camper van help

    my parents are thinking of buying a camper van, it has done 13000, x reg

    they have just found out it has had 7 former keepers, the dealer has told them that this is because it has been part exd a few times and every time it has been part exd this adds 2 new owners to it , ie the garage a and then the sale to the new owner

    is this right what he says

    However camper vans can change owners quite a bit in their lives, an owner may buy the van, decide they don't enjoy it and then sell it on. Others may just buy a new van every 2 years. The Van could have been a demonstrator for the first year of it's life.

    Buy a van on condition and service history as opposed to the amount of owners, is it a coach built van or a day van style one?

    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    I'vr had quite few few cars over the years, never had one from a trader with them listed as owner, thats what the trade slip on the V5C is for, usually, before the original document goes off, I write the last owners details down to check with them on car history, always been previous owner, not dealer.
    Having said that, could be reasons for it, as section Mod said, buy oon condition and service history.

    A trader won,t register it in their name.

    Thats not too bad to be honest convertibles are the same people buy them for the summer then get rid in the winter. Guess same goes with camper vans
