A Barnsley man is selling his 1984 Bedford CF campervan, as a “perfect restoration candidate”. On the eBay listing, the man breaks down his reasoning for selling the vehicle, citing the fact he “never wanted a campervan, my now ex-girlfriend did”.

The white 1984 Bedford CF motorhome is a right-hand drive with a sleeping capacity big enough for three people.

The starting price for the vehicle started at £300 on October 5.

Since then, there have been 41 bids, attracting a current total of £1,540, with just over one day left of the bidding.

The listing says: “We compromised 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’.


“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.

“As you can probably tell by this point I’m eager to get this thing off of my drive and draw a line under this turbulent chapter.”

The seller, using the handle milnthorpe31584, did list some positives about the motorhome despite his less-than-ideal situation.

The wooden frame of the living area has been totally rebuilt, as the owner says it had signs of rot from a previous leak.

Alongside this, the motorhome has been sealed and filly insulated with a moisture barrier to prevent any further leakages.
