It’s probably one of the larger single purchases you’ll ever make, and just like buying a car,when you purchase a caravan, you can either buy new or second hand. There’s lots of benefits in buying second hand caravans, and Perth based Caravanland has one of the widest selection of used caravans across WA, with a cross-section of makes and models to suit diverse needs. If you are new to caravanning or just starting out, a second hand caravan won’t break the bank and is an affordable way for you to try one of this country’s favourite pastimes.
Pre-Loved Doesn’t Mean Old
Second hand or pre-loved caravans can usually be found in excellent condition as they are only used for part of the year as a recreational vehicle. It’s common to find second hand caravans with upgrades, so they may come with extra fixtures and fittings such as additional power points or air conditioning. A caravan has a life span of around 14 years, and a second hand caravan will most certainly hold their value. When buying a second hand caravan there are no delivery delays and warranty is still inclusive which ensures peace of mind. In general, just like cars, prices are linked to the year of manufacture and fitments.
How Will I Know It’s Reliable?
Caravanland ensures all second hand caravans which are traded in or purchased meet our strict high-level standards. They are all given a thorough safety check and service to ensure brakes, road lights, and appliances are working and that all tyres fitted still have plenty of tread. A warranty is also supplied for added protection. Caravanland only accepts vans which are in good order from well-respected established brands. Gas bottles can be supplied and a second hand caravan can be fitted with extras to suit your requirements. At collection of your new second hand caravan you will also get a detailed handover induction.
What Type and Range of Second Hand Caravans Should I Look For?
There are a range of second hand caravans stocked at Caravanland and stock is always updated, even daily. Jayco models are extremely popular, highly regarded and are renowned for their durability and high quality. Jayco’s frame construction is strong yet lightweight, as is the chassis, which helps make them stable to tow. Jayco features fibreglass wall construction which is seen as superior as it prevents dents and knocks. Caravanland also stocks Coromal and Roma and many other brand names. All these brands also hold their value well.
Personal preference, layout, design, style, finish and budget will be key factors to the selection process. It’s also wise to consider spare parts availability and whether a car is heavy enough to tow the caravan. Caravan and camping trips in Australia are on the increase by 7%, and 64% of domestic trips are taken by 20 to 54-year old’s. Australia has so much to offer, it’s not surprising more people are keen to hit the road to try it out! For anyone new to caravanning, it makes sense to buy a second hand van so you can experience your new-found hobby at reasonable cost. A purchase through Caravanland can offer peace of mind.
