Today there are many caravans, motorhomes and recreational vehicles to choose from, ranging from the basics up to luxury styles with all the mod-cons, plus considerations such as does your current vehicle have the towing capacity needed? Or would you need to purchase another vehicle? Do you want something that is more wind resistant and easy to set up and dismantle?
To assist you in selecting what type suits you, the best bet is to drop on out to Avan, located at Morisset, and talk to the people who know the industry inside out and back to front.
They will help you decide whether to buy a caravan, pop-top caravan, fifth wheeler, motorhome, campervan, camper/tent trailer, a slide on camper or just a simple tent.
Buy New or Used?
New caravans or RV’s offer all the benefits, safety features and comforts of recent design advancements, including independent rear suspension and durable, lightweight construction material. Buying new also allows you the choice to ‘custom-build’ the layout for your needs and desires.
A pre-loved caravan or RV is less expensive, but be aware and check for wear, mould, leaks and the mechanics. If you choose to buy a used caravan or RV, always buy from a licensed dealer who perform many exhaustive checks to ensure that the units they are selling are in fact not stolen (and often re-identified) or encumbered (i.e. they don’t have any money owing on them).
