Dumped man sells old campervan on eBay because ‘slab of misery on wheels’ is a reminder of his ‘terrible’ relationship
A MAN is selling a campervan on eBay which his ex-girlfriend convinced him to buy – because it's now nothing but a "sad slab of misery on wheels".
Dumped milnthorpe31584 listed his Bedford CF Motorhome for £300 and described it as "a reminder of some terrible life choices".
He said he never wanted a campervan but his girlfriend did so they made the purchase and were going to do it up together.
But the woman left him, "probably for a man with a much more impressive motorhome than mine", so he decided to get rid of it.
The van is currently available for £1,000 on eBay, with three days left to go.
In the advert, the man writes: "Well, well, well. Where do I start with this?
"Up for sale is my 1984 Bedford CF camper van. A perfect restoration candidate for another coerced partner, or sadist.
"I never wanted a campervan, my now ex girlfriend did. So we comprised and purchased a camper, without ever laying eyes on it first might I add.
"It was intended to be a "joint" project which in reality turned into her standing round for half a day complaining about the shed we'd brought, and the remainder of the time on my back about how long it was taking to transform it into her 'perfect tranquil cabin on wheels'. Yikes.
"Fast forward a few months and she decided to up and leave (probably for a man with a much more impressive motorhome than mine) leaving only behind this sad slab of misery on wheels.
"Apart from being an eyesore and driving down local property prices, it serves as a personal reminder that the last few years of my life have truly and utterly been a waste."
He then goes on to describe the good points of the van, saying that it's rust free underneath and it doesn't leak anymore.
It also comes with a full wiring kit, water tanks, cladding, and a heater.
But the caravan doesn't actually run anymore and will need repainting.
The advert continues: "If you've made it this far you are probably mentally unwell or still being forced into making a perfect love den for those romantic weekend getaways, either way I applaud the dedication.
"If you do decide to bid on it and God forbid you actually win, you will have to get it transported or collect it yourself as I have neither the time, the means or the will to deliver it for you.
"I will do my best to answer any serious queries, but if you ask me about the flow rate of the shower for example; I probably won't.
"Its not perfect (far from it) nor road ready so don't expect it to be and you won't be disappointed, it's a cheap project and a good way to break into the world of motorhome owning.
"I'm just trying to get a little money back so I can go on a heavy night of drinking, perhaps visit a lady of the night depending on how well the auction goes and then close this awful chapter of my life.
"Happy bidding and good luck (God knows you're gonna need it)."
