If you're planning to roam Australia in 2021 in a new caravan, then selecting a model from the oldest caravan manufacturer around could be a good choice. Roma Caravans lays claim to being the oldest established manufacturing in the world, having been established in 1928 and specialises in caravans that are built to the customer specifications.
The company changed hands in the 1950s and has remained in the hands of that family since that time. The photos in their brochures of 1930s and 50’s cars towing Roma Caravans are a must-see. The company’s pictorial history is essentially a record of the Australian caravanning industry and an interesting viewpoint on how it has developed into the highly regarded sector it is today.
Definitely not mass produced, Roma Caravans are manufactured to custom requirements and the company claims the focus for each vehicle is on quality and durability. Customers get very much involved in the build of the vehicle, having input and following the progress while the van of their choice is created.
Selecting your van from the range of Roma Caravan designs on offer may be a challenge as the selection is quite vast. The range includes traditional caravans, off-road models, slide-out designs and a sports model. We take a look at the Roma range and while you’re browsing, don’t forget to have the Jade Caravan Finance Calculator open in another web browser to compare possible loan repayments on each model.
The Sov’reign Sports model caught our attention with the tagline – the caravan equivalent of glamping. So what’s on offer? Apparently the key is sophistication and luxury comfort. The exterior is composite and the interior pure bliss. The look and feel is highly contemporary with a clever use of space to create a spacious and light feel. Features include a queen bed, ensuite with flush toilet, cooker with 3 gas and one electric hob, two 95 litre water tanks, two gas bottles, 184-litre fridge and many more inclusions.
A practical inclusion in the Roma Caravans range is the Elegance Slide-Out model. The slide-out element creates that added space which many larger families or long-time-on-the-road travellers really yearn for. As Roma models are custom built, you can choose if you want that extra space in the bedroom or the kitchen or with the company’s clever design, you can actually have extra space in both areas.
This model includes four bunks as well so there’s room for plenty in your Elegance. It also includes a 150-watt solar panel, battery management system, 95-litre grey water tank, washing machine and plenty more.
Other models in the Roma range include the Razorback models and additional models in the Elegance collection. The floorplans are for sizes from 17’6” through to 25’6” so there should be an option to suit your style of roaming.
Securing Your Roma Model
Roma Caravans is based in the caravan manufacturing heartland of Campbellfield in Victoria and can be contacted directly to discuss your custom caravan. The company provides 3D tours of different models on their website, plus a downloadable brochure and plenty of details of the inclusions and features of each model.
As each Roma van is built to your specs, you will want to have your finances secured before you start discussions, so you are in a position to make a commitment and get the process started. Jade Caravan Loans recommends securing a pre-approved caravan loan through us to get the best caravan loans in Australia, to meet that objective.
Most caravan buyers will have a rough idea of what the caravan they are considering will cost – with so many online resources and communities available that should be easy to source. What not all buyers do know is how much that purchase price may cost in monthly loan repayments or how much they may be approved to borrow.
An affordable Secured caravan financing is a great way of finding out how much you can be approved to borrow to purchase a caravan. Your Jade consultant proceeds to source you a loan quote and has your application approved for an estimated amount. When you make your purchase that loan amount is finalised with the sales purchase invoice figure.
You can of course include options and accessories in your overall loan amount so don’t forget to have Roma include all the items you want when you order. There is no obligation attached to a pre-approved loan so if you change your mind, it is not a problem.
A pre-approved loan is also a great way to approach attending caravan shows and expos. If you intend to attend with a view to purchasing, having your finance pre-arranged will give you the opportunity to talk deals at the show and place your order.
If roaming in a Roma is your style for 2021, give us a call and arrange your caravan finance today.
