Pros & Cons of Static Caravan Ownership

28/03/2018

Many people dream about owning their own holiday home. After visiting a specific resort year after year, it’s not unusual for families to want to return to their own static caravan. Having the luxury of going on holiday whenever you want, making use of the resorts facilities and returning to your favourite holiday location are only some of the benefits, though static caravan ownership is a decision that needs careful consideration.

To help you with your decision, we’ve put together the pros and cons of static caravan ownership.

Advantages

Home from Home

A holiday home is another place for you to call home. You’ll be able to make more memories with your family and friends, meet the locals and explore new and exciting parts of the country that you have yet to visit.

Access

You’ll be able to visit your holiday home whenever the resort is open. Though some are open all year round, many resorts close for business over Christmas. This eliminates any worrying regarding booking, avoiding peak times, spending extra money or having to organise a holiday.

Location

Finding the right location for your holiday home is vital. If you’ve found somewhere you’d love to visit every year, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Holiday home resorts often have some fantastic facilities available to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Family Time

Owning a holiday home is the ideal chance to spend more time with family and friends. You’ll always have somewhere to go when everyday life gets stressful, whether you’re in need of a romantic getaway with your partner or a fun break with the family.

Disadvantages

Responsibility

Owning a static caravan holiday home comes with a great deal of responsibility. Whilst holiday home ownership is great for some, it may not be right for everyone. You’ll need to ensure you’ve done your research and figure out how to maintain and look after your static caravan.

Little Variety

Many people enjoy exploring the world and going to new places every year. If that’s you, a static caravan holiday home may not be for you. Static caravans are ideal for those who enjoy feeling settled and at home and getting to know somewhere a bit more each time you visit.

The advantages of static caravan holiday home ownership far outweigh the negatives. However, it’s important to think carefully about whether you are prepared to take on the responsibility of ownership.
