How To Spot The Best Second Hand Caravans Based On Accessories

April 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 111

When people are on the lookout for a second hand caravan, they often focus rigidly on the age, facilities and other common areas. But many neglect to look at the kind and state of the accessories that are included with each caravan. This is a big mistake, as the accessories can give a potential buyer a fairly good idea of how well the caravan has been looked after and whether the asking price is fair or not.

Most second hand caravans will come fully equipped with a range of standard accessories, but most owners will take out items, such as the awning and water storage containers, preferring to keep them for themselves. If you can, it is best to buy a used caravan that contains as many accessories as possible because then you truly will be receiving a bargain.

But, just because a second hand caravan doesn't come with any accessories doesn't mean that it hasn't been well looked after. This is a true statement, but it is important to keep in mind that a used caravan that comes fitted with accessories says two things about the previous owners:

  1. They knew a considerable amount about caravanning, as experienced travelers will know what accessories to buy and what ones to leave on the shelf.
  2. They took care of their caravan and took the time to have their accessories properly installed.

There is a huge range of caravan accessories on the market, from microwave ovens to full-blown sound systems, and it really does take an experienced person to know which ones are the best.

When looking at the accessories that have been included with your second hand caravan, it is important to look at the age, quality and amount of care that each has received. Many people will place advertisements proclaiming that their van has a microwave oven and fully equipped bathroom, only for you to arrive at the viewing to discover the microwave oven is from the Stone Age and that the bathroom is primitive at best. Any cooking accessories (such as the refrigerator and oven) should be checked for cleanliness, and electrical accessories (such as televisions, satellite dishes and radios) should be checked for how they work.

When next looking at a second hand caravan that you would like to buy, take a few minutes out of your viewing time to check out the accessories that it comes with. If they have been well cared for, are reasonably new and are a perfect fit for that particular van, you can leave with the knowledge that the previous owners have taken some care with their van.
