Buying new

Everyone understands the excitement of buying something that's brand new - that special thrill of knowing that no-one else has used it before is second to none. If you're keen to splash out and treat yourself, this could be the perfect option for you.

As a main dealer for leading caravan manufactures Coachman, Elddis and Swift, we stock a unique range of top-specification Special Edition models each year - featuring a host of luxury extras and offering exceptional value for money, starting at around £13,000. As an added bonus, all our new ranges have ten-year body warranties. Click here to view our range of new caravans.

Buying used

When you're looking to invest in your first caravan, you might want to spend just a few thousand pounds on a used model before upgrading to another nearly-new or new one in a year or two.

We have a superb range of well-maintained used caravans, featuring a huge variety of makes, models and layouts. When you've decided which layout bests suits your lifestyle, starting from as little as £3,000 to around £16,000. Click here to check out all our current options.

If you prefer to see them for real, feel free to call at our Glossop showroom, where you'll find them arranged according to layout - such as two-berth, family options and fixed beds - to make browsing so much easier.

Funding your investment

When it comes to paying for your caravan, you can either pay a deposit followed by a lump sum covering the balance on collection, or consider a number of funding options*.

Caravan finance can be arranged over a period of one to ten years, enabling you to spread the cost. With flexible deposits and fixed payments, you will always know where you are.

You can click here to use the credit indicator to find out if finance might be an option for you. Feedback is immediate and doesn't affect your credit rating.

Caravans 5 to 10 years old are covered for water ingress repairs up to a value of £1,000, plus braking systems, towing mechanism, chassis, suspension and interior components.

Caravans 10 to 15 years old are covered for water ingress repairs up to £500, plus costs of up to £1,000 relating to the braking systems, towing mechanism, chassis, suspension and interior components.

Terms and conditions apply.

Insurance

When you are towing your caravan, you are covered for any damage it may cause to other vehicles. All you have to do is tell your insurance company that you are towing a caravan.

While you aren't required by law to take out a specific caravan insurance policy, you should consider investing in comprehensive cover to give you peace of mind. It is important to note that if you take finance for your purchase it is a condition of a finance agreement that you must insure your caravan.

Several specialist caravan insurance companies offer excellent policies, and typical cover would include:

  • Cover for accidental damage, storm and theft
  • A new for old option (with some companies this applies to caravans up to 15 years old)
  • Emergency accommodation cover, so that you can continue your holiday in the event of an accident/mishap

Most policies specify that you have a hitch lock and wheel clamp. Premiums will generally be lower if you show proof of extra security measures, such as alarm systems, caravan tracking devices and a locked barrier.

Storage

Many people keep their caravans on their own property between holidays and breaks. If you don't want to, or don't have enough space, there's a choice of storage options countrywide.

We have a list of recommended storage places within a 50-mile radius of Glossop. Many are accredited by the Caravan Storage Site Owners' Association (CaSSOA).

If you live further than 50 miles from Glossop, visit the CaSSOA website (www.cassoa.co.uk).

CaSSOA assesses storage sites across the UK for their level of security and facilities. Three levels of security - Bronze, Silver and Gold - are based on features including CCTV, alarm systems and perimeter fencing.

And storing your caravan at a CaSSOA-rated site makes you eligible for policy discounts with many caravan insurance companies.

Accessories

We can get you off to a great start with our Starter Pack that includes:

  • An Aquaroll fresh water container
  • A Wastemaster wheeled waste water container
  • A waste water connection hose
  • A mains electricity lead
  • A gas regulator and connection pipe
  • A leisure battery
  • A number plate
  • Caravan step
  • Corner steady winding handle

Also on your 'essentials' list should be:

  • Toilet chemicals to keep your loo fresh and in good working order
  • Gas cylinders - Propane comes in red cylinders, butane in blue. Choose propane for frosty weather as butane doesn't vaporise in sub-zero temperatures.
  • Towing mirrors – these must be fitted to your car's door mirrors, extending your field of vision along both sides of the caravan.

Extras

Remember everything you put in your caravan will add weight so it is worth looking at specially-made, lightweight interior accessories - everything ranging from cutlery and kitchen accessories to tableware and tumblers.

Don’t forget sleeping bags or bedding and outdoor furniture. To keep your purchase safe, security fittings for the wheels and hitch will also help to reduce your insurance costs; a caravan cover is a big help in protecting your caravan especially during winter months.
