Whatever size or layout you might be looking for in a caravan, we’ll be able to match you with the one that works the best for your criteria. Before you make a purchase, we have put together some useful information to help you make the right purchase decision.


Make Sure your Car Can Tow a Caravan


The last thing you want is to purchase a new caravan, only to find that your car can’t actually tow it. Unless you want to spend your next few holidays outside your house, it’s best to make sure that you can actually tow your caravan before you make the purchase. Remember, your vehicle can’t exceed more than eighty-five per cent of the vehicle’s weight. 


If you drive what’s classed as a small vehicle, you’ll want to find a suitable sized caravan. Your Vehicle Identification Number can tell you how much your vehicle weighs, making it easier for you to work out if your car can tow your caravan. Or, if you want a little more peace of mind, we can offer you some advice on how to pick the right caravan for your car.


Decide on a Budget you Can Afford


If you’re looking for a caravan, even a second hand one, you’ll find that you can easily spend a substantial amount of money. This is why choosing a budget and sticking to it can make a real difference to your shopping experience. Having a set budget stops you from straying towards unaffordable caravans, which will only leave you disappointed, should your budget not stretch that far. We have a range of caravans that will fit most budgets and preferences, so why not take a look at our collection?
