Why Do You Need the Caravan?

This is possibly the most important question that has been discussed here. Campervans and motor homes are self powered, while the former is for just 2 people comfortably, and the latter for up to 6 people comfortably. But caravans are not self powered as they need to be towed by another vehicle if you are interested in frequent movements. Else, if you simply want to stay on one place, preferably a motor home park, then you may invest in a caravan to own a cheaper house than the conventional brick and mortar house. Moreover, these days more and more people are considering switching alternatives to permanent houses by selecting caravan and motor homes to make life simpler, use lesser space, and reduce cost of living.

It depends on your requirements; why you need the caravan. Based on that, you may the start looking for cheaper models. Some models will come with basic configurations, basic appliances, and basic furniture without much special add-ons, and will be cheap. Some will have the vintage style as they are refurbished old caravans, and again they would be good to own. You can also get a low cost caravan which is fairly good to use, and hence may need some touch work and repairs. This again will be cheap for the time, while you may later have to invest on the repairs and touch-ups.

Did You Check with The Classifieds and Old Caravan Resellers?

There are old caravan sellers, who give a caravan at tempting low prices, just because they are used and have some basic model appliances and decorations which cannot be upgraded at a low cost. However, these caravans being good enough to support life anywhere with the basic yet fully working infrastructure are good choices for the first cheap caravans that you may like to own. At least for the caravan experience, they are the best kick start.

You will be surprised to know, that the classified ads and links, which you never gave importance, or just overlooked, may have links to good conditioned, used and cheap caravans, which you are looking for. Not all sellers know the art of giving in attractive ads with catchy lines and cheesy pictures of the product. But as the user if you dig in a little deep with most of the links online, you will be happy to find some good deals.


Buying A Classic Vintage Caravan

If you get a classic vintage caravan at a cheap price, you should buy that after inspections, and later when you will be able to   afford you may upgrade and refurbish many things in it. Mainly the carpets may need a change, bathroom fittings also may need a change with unclogging of old plumbing lines. You must to check the door and window knobs and bolts, hinges etc. You will also have to check with the old electrical and appliances, if they need up gradation, and if that’s possible. In case you have an old semi automatic washer, and you see there isn’t option to upgrade at a low cost, you can continue with the old version without much harm. However, a vintage caravan may need an AC fitting with needed wiring, and you will be able to upgrade them slowly, till you seal the cheap deal initially without much grumbling.
