The 6 "Whats" Of Buying A Cheap Caravan

April 10, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 163

These days, with the popularity of the humble caravan on the rise and a huge range of models of varying qualities on the market, it is possible to find a cheap van on the market, whether it is new or used. Before you run out and buy the cheapest caravan on the market, however, you should look at these 6 "whats" to help you make the right decision:

  1. What do you want a caravan for?There are many reasons that people are on the lookout for a cheap caravan - perhaps you want to keep it in the backyard for a teenager to "live" in, or perhaps you want to take it on weekend or weeklong getaways. Remember that there are cheap vans and there are cheap vans.
  2. What size caravan do you want?Whilst most caravans will look similar on the outside, there actually is a huge difference in size between a 2-berth van and a 6-berth one. This difference in size will also be reflected in the asking price.
  3. What is the age of the caravan?If you are planning on using your cheap caravan to travel, you will need to ensure that it is not too old, as you may need to buy spare parts to repair it on occasion. If you're buying a used van, however, you may find that the older it is the cheaper it is.
  4. What is the caravan's make and model?With the wide range of caravans on the market, there is always going to be some brands that are better known (and, therefore, more respected) than others. If you plan on reselling your cheap van at a later date, this might be something you want to look into.
  5. What is the condition of the caravan?There really is no point in buying the cheapest caravan in the world if it is going to cost you thousands to fix up and make it livable. It could work out to be cheaper for you in the long run to spend a little bit more (whilst still getting a good price) to get a van that meets your needs.
  6. What are the legalities of the caravan?What may seem like a bargain at first could turn out to be a financial nightmare - if you're buying a caravan that has been stolen or sold to you through fraudulent means. Check this sort of stuff out before buying.

By answering the above 6 "what" questions about any cheap caravans you are interested in, you can ensure that you are choosing the best one for your needs and your wallet. It really is possible to find a cheap caravan, whether you are looking for a new or a used one - you just have to know where to look.
