Caravanning is becoming increasingly popular as an alternative way to holiday without having to worry about other people’s schedules and agendas. Couples and families are turning to caravan holidays for extra freedom and convenience. Plus, it’s a great way to see the real Australia on their own time and with all the familiar comforts of home. However, many are worried about the overall cost of their new caravan and how it will affect their budget.
Choosing a caravan that has everything you need ensures you’re getting the best value for your money, and there are a range of specific finance options available depending on the type of caravan you want.
How and Where Will You Use it?
Since a caravan is a major investment, it’s important to think about where and when you’ll use it, and how often. Will you be staying on sealed roads or heading off road regularly? If you’ll be hitching it up at every available opportunity, then it might be wise to purchase the best you can afford because it will soon pay for itself by saving you money on hotels.
Size and Weight
Consider the vehicle that you’ll use to tow your caravan. Its towing capacity will set the limit for how much your caravan weighs, but you also need enough room for everyone to sleep comfortably. Family holidays can soon turn sour if everyone is cramped and in each other’s way. This is where expert advice can really help by letting you know all the options you have, and coming up with solutions you might not have considered.
Choose Your Features
This is where you can save money by buying a caravan that only has the features you want. Are you planning to cook your own meals? You’ll want decent cooking facilities and a bigger fridge. How much time will you spend in the caravan? If you’ll only be using it for sleeping, then focus on comfortable bedding, but remember that you will need some living space for eating and relaxing. What about bathroom facilities? Will you be using powered sites at caravan parks, or camping in the wilderness on your own?
Don’t forget to find out what other family members want; they’ll be living in it too.
