Moving forward with your plans to get into a new caravan may involve a retreat - a step inside one of the great models available from Retreat Caravans. This family owned business has been operating for over 15 years, is based in the caravan manufacturing hub at Campbellfield Victoria and has reportedly sold over 5,000 caravans. Impressive stats and well-worth putting Retreat into your considerations when deciding which particular caravan you will buy.
Also impressive is the Retreat emphasis on innovation and design in the manufacture of their contemporary range of caravans. Of particular note in Retreat Caravans construction is in the way they construct the caravan walls. The company’s RXP construction method focuses especially on improving the thermal insulation properties of the caravan. More info.
Insulation can be important regardless of what regions you travel in your caravan. Maintaining a comfortable internal climate adds to your enjoyment and may reduce the need to run air con and heating. Autumn and winter are great seasons to head to inland regional areas, especially the mountains, for that invigorating crisp air and the great food experiences. But it can be chilly especially at night. While in summer and year-round in parts of the north of Australia, the heat can be uncomfortable. So having superior insulation properties in your caravan can be very much appreciated.
Retreat Caravans achieve these improved thermal properties through its trademark construction method, which involves multiple layers of materials, and through the use of selected materials. They replace the timber construction used by many other caravan builder, with a composite material which doesn’t absorb water. And they back it up with their structural guarantee – rot free – for the life of the caravan.
You’re buying a caravan for your leisure time, so any extra touches that can increase your comfort and enjoyment while limiting the need for maintenance and repairs has to be a plus. Let’s take a look at the Retreat Caravans range and then provide you with information on financing your purchase.

Moving Forward with Finance
Most people don’t move very far forward with their caravan purchase without a caravan loan. Not all banks and finance companies offer specific caravan loans. Instead, caravan buyers may be offered their generic personal secured loan.
Not so at Jade Caravan Finance. As specialist lenders to the leisure market, we do offer specific caravan loans. We understand the market, buyer requirements and we have established our service offering to meet those demands.
Our Secured Caravan Loan is suited to buyers of most new caravans, both traditional on road models and off-road models. The caravan is used as security by the lender against the loan, but the buyer takes on ownership immediately and is responsible for all maintenance, insurance and ongoing expenses.
While Retreat has an emphasis on thermal insulation in their caravans, Jade insulates our customers against interest rate hikes. We have an emphasis on achieving better caravan finance interest rates across our loans and the interest rate is fixed at that low rate for the entire term of the loan. So if and when interest rates do increase at some point in the future, those increases won’t impact your existing loan. That can provide our customers with assurance around their finances moving forward.
The loan term for our caravan loans is also fixed, which along with the fixed interest rate means, fixed repayments. So once you have your Jade caravan finance locked in, it stays that way for the term of the loan. But you do have the option to make extra payments if you wish. By doing so, you may pay out the loan early, which attracts minimal break fees. To assist with repayment estimates, utilise our free online caravan finance calculator.
