    There was a huge fire at one of the Marquis branches a few months ago , losing around 20 motorhomes so I suspect it's one of those.
    I reckon it will be snapped up, fixed and on a dealers forecourt in the blink of an eye. Note the lack of number plate so it will be hard to spot once sorted.

    Doubt if a reputable dealer will be bothered, a van like that will be tainted and recorded on Vcar and as such a trade seller should disclose its history. It is now a used van and not brand new as such.

    Deduct the dealer margin and reclaimable VAT and cost of repair, it will not be such a bargain, Ok for a private providing there is not any other problem hidden such as warping etc.

    If its such a bargain why does he not repair it?

    Ah. Well.

    Used to be a little ole garage down the backend of nowhere in rural Warks that just happened to be one of husband Mk 1's customers when he worked for a very large main Unipart dealer. He was a 'preferred repairer' for a certain insurance company and as such got first refusal on all sorts of motors, after insurance claims like this. So he would put in an offer for the job lot and if it was the best, he'd get em. Certain vehicles he could happily cope with to tart up fairly cheaply and quickly and sell on and kept him a) busy and b) well fed, housed, holidayed and watered etc etc and others just weren't his areas of expertise so he sold em on for whatever they cost him.

    There will be more wrong with that van than has been disclosed and if its been bought at RVO can see further problems down the line and as Peter says, unlikely a dealer would touch it.
    The bloke has other listings of "damaged vehicles"
