Top Tips For Buying A Static Caravan

Buying A Staic Caravan

When buying your first static caravan, it is so very important to take a couple of things into consideration to make the entire process as smooth as possible. In fact, buying the caravan is simple enough, but there are a couple of pitfalls to keep in mind.

Why Do You Want To Buy A Static Caravan

We realise it’s a silly question, but don’t regret your decision a few months down the road because you didn’t consider why you wanted to buy a caravan in the first place. Here are a few of the most significant factors to consider when deciding why you want to buy a static caravan – and they are all excellent reasons:

One of the nicest aspects of owning a static camper is the option to take cheap UK vacations whenever you choose. You could, for example, go on a trip to a nearby caravan park whenever you like, without having to worry about buying plane tickets, paying for parking, or booking a hotel.

Weekend breaks and short holidays – Another significant advantage of owning a static caravan is the ability to take vacations and weekend breaks whenever you choose.

Static caravans give a holiday that suits all the family – Caravan vacations are almost ideal for the entire family, not just a select number of people. You may go on a static caravan holiday to rest and unwind; you might go to a rural location to take in the sights, or you might travel to one near a golf course.

Static Caravan Locations In The UK

When buying a new static caravan, it’s vital that you pick the right location. Make sure you think hard about the location because it’s going to completely change the experience you get. There are some fantastic parks in Cornwall that all offer activities and attractions to make it worth your time, but it’s just one example of the many locations you could consider for your own holiday home.

The place you choose will have a significant impact on how much you pay and the whole experience you have, so don’t miss this step and don’t just go to the closest spot – try somewhere new!

New Vs Used Static Caravans

The next tip is picking between a used and new static caravans. In most cases, a new caravan is going to cost significantly more but you’ll get far more new advantages and updates to your caravan as it is a lot newer. For example, there might be more modern amenities and the model or layout of the caravan might be better suited for your families needs.

A static caravan is an expensive investment, which is why we recommend that you look at some of the caravans we have available to help you make a decision for the future. We also provide financing options to make buying a more expensive caravan more reasonable.

What Running Costs Are There With Static Caravans

Estimating your running costs will be the next top tip. Running a caravan is fairly straightforward but that doesn’t mean you’ll be exempt from running costs. Here are a couple of the most common expenses to think about when purchasing a caravan:

  • Annual sites fees for the park – The park you purchase a caravan at will have annual site fees.
  • Insurance payments – You will have to insure your caravan at some stage to protect it from damage and theft.
  • Utility bills – You’re going to need to pay for water, gas and electricity.
  • Gas safety check – Carry out a gas safety inspection to ensure that your boiler and fire services are safe.
  • Drain down charges for winter – Caravan owners hate frost damage, especially after a long winter period.
  • Travel costs – Don’t forget that you’ll also need to pay to actually get to your caravan. This means any train tickets or petrol fees that it costs to travel to the park itself.
  • Maintenance costs – Lastly, don’t forget about general maintenance costs such as cleaning which is handled by your site.
