Top Tips for Buying a Used Caravan
Posted on September 26, 2012
There is nothing quite like the freedom and enjoyment that can come with a UK or international caravanning holiday, and there is no need to break the bank to enjoy this simple pleasure. Here at The Caravan Company we have the biggest selection of used caravans available in the country, and we pride ourselves on offering our 250 plus caravans at unbeatable value. However, purchasing a used caravan isn’t something you should rush into, so what should you be considering beforehand?
Just like when you buy anything second hand, it is vital that you give the van a good once over to check that it is in good condition. Look for signs of rust as well as anything that appears to be broken or damaged, right down to the smallest details.
At The Caravan Company we hand pick our second hand caravans form genuine van owners, ensuring that they have a proven history of reliability. Our experienced technicians fully service all of our caravans before we deliver them so you can rest assured you will be receiving a vehicle in top condition.
Does it Have Enough Room
Trying to deduce how much space you require depends on more than simply how many beds you need, and you should give serious consideration to how much space you need. Depending on how long you plan to be going for your caravanning holiday, size is an important factor in deciding on the van you choose. Remember, it is going to form your home for the duration of your trip, so picking something too small could result in a serious case of cabin fever!
Again, you will want to consider how long you are going to be in your caravan when thinking about what sort of facilities you will need. A short weekend break may only require beds and a toilet, but if you’re touring across Europe you will want to have access to a kitchen and bathroom. This is also the case if you are going somewhere remote, as you don’t want to have to drive to the nearest pub every time you need the loo!
