“Hunk of junk”: Mum’s overly honest caravan ad has internet in stitches

“Hunk of junk”: Mum’s overly honest caravan ad has internet in stitches

Glastonbury mum Katie Perkins has obviously had enough of the 27-year-old caravan taking up space on her property.

So, in a fit of fury, she took to Facebook Marketplace to try and find a prospective buyer – but soon turned her post into an opportunity to vent a bit of pent-up rage at the “monstrosity” that had been plaguing her for so long.

The UK woman was definitely a little too honest in her expletive-laden ad, and the post quickly went viral due to her astonishingly blunt descriptions.

“It is a tin shed on wheels,” she wrote.

“It is f***ing hot in the summer. It is f***ing freezing in the winter. It even grows icicles on the inside.”

She adds that the oven and fridge are equally rubbish, but the microwave is “pretty decent.”

“Get this hunk of junk off my f***ing land,” she pleads.

“I’d love to say it’s beautiful, but I’d be lying. I’d love to say I loved living in it, but I’d be lying.”

The listing has been shared more than 1,000 times and racked up hundreds of comments as people commended her for the refreshing honesty, calling it the “best ad ever”.

Check out the images of the caravan in the gallery below, and here also is the full (slightly cleaned up) post in all its glory:

“YES IT'S STILL AVAILABLE - I WILL. REMOVE ONCE IT HAS GONE.

IT IS AN ANCIENT 27 YEAR OLD CARAVAN. 32FT x 10FT, 2 BED STATIC.
