Used Caravans christchurch
Whether you're a regular caravanner or this is your first time venturing into the world of motor homes, you're in the right place. When it comes to spending your hard-earned cash on a used caravan, you want to make sure that you are getting the best value for money and that the used caravan you have chosen meets all of your requirements for your future holidays. Drawing on our many years of experience in helping customers buy their dream used caravans, we've created the Glossop guide to buying a used caravan.
When buying a used caravan, you need to consider how many miles it has previously travelled, and whether the owner has kept it in good condition. A bit like cars, caravans depreciate in value, and it can actually be a good money-saving move to buy a nearly-new caravan, or a used caravan that is just a couple of years old. At Glossop Caravans, we put all of our used caravans through rigorous testing to ensure that they are in a premium condition before we sell them.
However, the most important point when buying a used caravan is personal safety. Your vehicle should always weigh more than the caravan you are towing, which is why it is so important to select a caravan which is lighter than your car. Your car has a 'kerbweight' – this is the weight of your vehicle as it would be sitting in the kerb (i.e. without any passengers sitting inside it). When you know what your kerbweight is in kg, you know that you need to purchase a caravan that is no more than 85% of your car's kerbweight. The caravan's weight is known as the maximum technically permissible laden mass (MTPLM).
If you've decided to buy a used caravan christchurch, you'll need an idea of how you'd like your interior layout to look. Never choose a caravan based on its exterior appearance alone – it's all about how you can live inside it comfortably, and that all stems back to the layout of the van. Consider the following when deciding on the layout of your used caravan
− Who will be sleeping inside it? (Adults, children, or both?)
− How many beds will you need (these are known as 'berths' in the caravan world)
− What will you use the caravan for? (Camping, active/outdoors holidays)
− How active are you? (If you intend on doing lots of outdoor activities, you might need a van with a larger bathroom area to clean off and space to store outdoor gear)
