Conway Tardis folding camper (trailer tent) 1986.
With a heavy heart i have decided to sell my Conway tardis folding camper, i have owned for approx 4 or 5 years and have had some great trips with it. Unfortunately with kids grown up and living alone its just to big for me and as such hasn’t been used for the past 2 years.
its a 1986 model, 6 berth with a gross wieght of 750kg, which means it can be towed on most car licenses (the reason i went for this model) it can be put up in as little as 10 mins and is easy to tow. i believe there are some videos on youtube showing the set up process.
As you can see the previous owner had a new canvas supplied and fitted at a cost of circa £1200 , this was from TVS Bolton (Research will tell you one of the few companies who do these and the most reputable) This was done in approx 2014, so only 6/7 years old and in great condition.
In my ownership i have added a Lesiure Battery,new carpet tiles,LED lights, 12v/240v fridge, Rapid 260 porch awning, bluetooth stereo and given it a quick makeover.
Below are some points to note,
as stated i gave the interior a quick update which still looks ok but could do with touching up here and there, some marks to the paint and a few bits of damage to the Vynyl on the cupboards/tops.White paint has started to yellow a bit, so interior could do with being revamped again which is part of the fun owning these old campers
Some of the bulbs on the LED lights seem to have failed but they stil do their job.
only one speaker for the stereo works.
I covered the seats myself with a staple gun, not the best job but look neat and tidy when in place.
I have never used the grill and hobs but does come with 2 gas bottles with a little gas in (i think) .
This came with no bed pods but i used ones from my old conway cruiser, they do the job fine. I also put curtains in as the originals were damaged but these could do with some new clips and a freshen up.
It looks its age!! paint worn in places, there is a dent on the rear lower panel. I cant seem to find the key for the door but locking the door is pretty pointless on these anyway.
Various bits and bobs included, 20l water carrier, hook up lead, 12v water pump, low wattage kettle, lamp, few pots pans cutlery etc, levelling ramps, chocks
As stated this hasn’t been used in a couple of years and i have no longer have a tow vehicle. everything looks visually ok, pulls by hand freely and the brake seems to work ok, would recommend getting it serviced before use(and the gas if planning on using grill/hob) and also that an experienced tow person collects for peace of mind. Tyres are dated 2014
