So, you’re looking to buy a family caravan but you’re not sure where to start. You’ve heard about a bunch of different models, features, and fitouts, but it still makes you feel overwhelmed. Well, the good news is we are here to break down how you can find the perfect fit for your needs. Check out this handy blog from PMX Campers for everything you need to know.
Think about your budget
When it comes to choosing a family caravan, one of the first things you’ll need to do is think about your budget. This is key because it will help you to narrow in on affordable options. Doing so will also ensure you don’t get caught up in the bright lines and commit to something beyond your means. We recommend sitting down and coming up with a hard limit for what you can spend. Then, simply filter your searches based on this. In other words, everything south of your budget is something you can realistically consider.
Tip: feel free to ask a knowledgeable friend or a local expert for advice about pricing and how much you should spend to find the best deal.
Consider the size of your family
Next up you’ll want to consider the size of your family. Why is this important? Because if you have lots of kids, then you’ll need plenty of room. On the other hand, if you have just one or two, then you can likely get away with something a little smaller. Considering the size of your family is also important when it comes to things like the number of bunks, toilets and sitting space that a caravan provides for. Again, with more people to think about, then opting for a bigger design is always a good idea. Other than that, feel free to follow your gut instinct and go for something that appeals best to you.

What interests do you have?
If you consider yourself a bit of a whizz in the kitchen, then maybe a great cooking area is high up your list. If you’re a keen surfer then perhaps you want to prioritise a shower with plenty of hot water. Either way, think about what you and your family will be doing on your trips away. Having this at the forefront of your mind will help you to find something that meets all your needs and ticks all the right boxes.
Tip: if you like to head off road with your caravan, then opt for a build that is tough, durable, and rugged. Stuck for ideas? Check out the Ceduna line.
