Bought mine 2016 and now used as a summerhouse in garden (still have all original fittings).
Apparently they only made 500 of this style and just wondered if there were any others about of the same era / year.
Spotted another one for sale on ebay 2 years ago but was sprayed all white over its original colours.

Steve, contact (or join, it's only 15.) the Retro Caravan Club UK. Our treasurer has "Sprite" through the middle like a stick of rock. I think he owns at least one of every Sprite ever made, and his knowledge is encyclopaedic.

Coincidence - there one just come on eBay! One owner from new with all original paperwork. Needs a bit of tidying up but looks good.

and it's gone worn within 24 hours of posting. Think someone has done a deal to end the auction - i hope they paid what it's worth. The last one i saw on eBay went for over 3k although perhaps in better condition.
Well at least i know there at least 3 left now!!

I contacted the person selling it and my hunch was correct - the seller was keen to get shot of it and let it go for 210. The buyer has cleaned it and it is now back in eBay - already double his money in less than an hour! Good luck to them.
