When buying a static caravan, there is a lot more to consider than just it’s looks. Many people focus on aesthetics and do not consider the other factors involved. Make sure to not buy on impulse and look further into what you want.
One of the major things to consider is your location of choice. You want to choose somewhere that best fits you. Therefore, make sure you have visited the area, looked around and know what there is to do. You want to pick somewhere that is suitable for you and what you enjoy. If you have children, you might prefer somewhere with lots to do and activities for kids. Whereas if you are more interested in landscapes, somewhere with a good scenery and lots to go and see would be a better choice. Think about what you want from a caravan park; you might prefer somewhere with lots of activities going on or maybe somewhere with restaurants and a spa for a more relaxed experience when you come to your caravan.
Considering your budget is an important factor that you need to think about if you want to buy a new or pre-owned static caravan. While buying a new caravan will be more costly, it could save you money in the long run on maintenance issues. You also need to find out if the caravan park you use has a limit on the age of the caravans there. Many caravan parks like to keep the park new and looking it’s best, meaning that many will only allow static caravans to stay for a certain number of years or until they reach a specific age. You would need to find this out and make sure the caravan you choose fits the time frame if needed.
Many people will purchase a static caravan and do not consider the other bills they will need to pay towards it. Site fees, gas, electric, insurance, TV licence and maintenance fees if needed. It all adds up and can be very expensive. Therefore, making a list of these bills might be a good idea to find out a monthly cost.
