The choices in caravans are extensive and range (up to) triple axel, number of beds, kitchen/lounge facilities to mechanical power and tow capacities. It’s hard to know what to look for when you want to buy a caravan new or used. Below are some tips for finding the best caravan for you.


When it comes to selecting a caravan, the first thing is to consider what you want to use it for. Are you looking for a long haul trip around the country or something you can hop into for a few weeks holiday? Will there be more than two people travelling? Will you need to accommodate children? There are different caravans that cater for different groups and events. For example a Scenic Caravan is the deluxe "home away from home" on-road and off-road, with a luxury spacious interior and fully equipt with beautiful fittings and fixtures. These caravans are ideal for taking a longer journey and travelling to places for extended periods of time. We highly recommend that you visit a new/used caravan seller who can show you different ranges and types of live-in caravans that may suit your needs.


Once you’ve found the kind of caravan that will suit your purpose, it’s time to consult your financial plan. For retirees, avid travelers and families the amount to spend on a caravan is often incorporated into the cost of living and spending in each of their chosen destinations. The key is to aim for the best caravan and check all the associated costs.


What’s the difference between new and used caravans? Perhaps before we answer that, let’s look at what is the same whether the caravan is new or used. Running costs such as registration, electricity, fuel, insurance, on-site visitor fees are part and parcel of life with caravans. The differences usually sit in the maintenance and upkeep. Some re-sellers take particular care with ensuring the caravan is of a high standard and can perform well, reducing repairs and maintenance for the buyer. Look for sellers of used caravans who have a good reputation, and read through their testimonials. New caravans are covered by a warranty so be sure to check it out if you decide on something brand new.

Regardless of what your intended uses are for your caravan, do your homework. Research the features, costs, and read the reviews. You can start by talking to a reputable seller of both new and used caravans, like the team at RV Sales Australia. They have years of experience in caravans and have countless stories to share from their many happy clients.
