Caravans are like homes, every one of them is different and each caravan will suit a family differently. There are loads of caravans for sale out there to choose from but finding the perfect one for your family can seem like an impossible task. So here are a few things for you to think about to help you narrow down your search for the perfect caravan:


The first thing you need to determine is how big it needs to be - how many people you will want to sleep in your caravan. If you are a family of four then you still may want to look at slightly larger options than a four-berth if you plan to take friends or relatives away with you too. Another very important thing to consider is how much weight your car can tow, there is no point looking at caravans that are too heavy for your car.


Once you’ve decided what size caravan you need to be looking at you can start to look at the different types of layouts available. Each caravan is laid out differently, some will have washrooms located at the end or the centre of the caravans and some will have separate toilet and shower units. Bed layouts also vary; some have fixed beds or seating areas that double up as beds or bunk beds. The best thing to do is to look around plenty of caravans so you can get a feel of the size and layout and decide which the best option for your family is.


If your family are planning lots of trips away in your caravan then the chances are you’re going to be spending a lot of time in it so it’s important it has the right tools for the job.

If you are a family of avid cooks then make sure you focus on caravans that have a good kitchen with the appropriate amount of hobs and a large enough fridge.
