Caravan shows and outdoor expos are great opportunities to catch up on the latest in new model RVs, caravans and camper trailers. At the recent shows several manufacturers unveiled new models and updates to existing models which are definitely worth catching up on. If you didn’t make it to the show Jade Caravan Finance provides a quick update on some new models, some that are available now and news on caravan finance following the recent RBA rate rise.
Adding Euro Style to Aussie Travelling
Want to add a touch of European style when travelling Australian roads? Then take a look at the latest Adria models. Adria is a European caravan manufacturer which is represented in Australia by the Apollo Group. The Adria brand is defined by lightweight model RVs which feature trademark Euro style but have been engineered to suit Australian conditions.
The company unveiled the latest to join their Adria collection, the Adora, at the recent Melbourne Leisurefest. Two models were shown, an 18’4” DT Sport and a 19’11” PH Sport. Very sleek with a sporty edge, the Adora models have something special in looks and plenty to attract buyers in key features and inclusions.
Pricing we found was in the $80,000 range so those interested can use our Caravan Finance Calculator to start forming ideas around how you would like us to structure your finance.
Check out the current Adria models and speak with your local Apollo dealer about when you may get your hands on a new Adora.
New Caravan Model from Cub Campers
The Cub brand is known for its great camper trailers and now it adds a luxurious caravan model, the C16 to its collection. This 16’ hybrid model is set for off the grid travel and with plenty of comfort, luxury and convenience to make every trip memorable.
The clever design makes maximum use of the space to create a compact tourer with 720W of solar generation, 200 litre fresh water tanks, roof top air con, smart TV, great ensuite and some great options and extras to customise.
Manufactured and designed in Australia, the Cub C16 looks set to be a regular traveller around the country. Lock in yours with pre-approved finance through Jade Caravan Finance.
Update to MDC Models
Also being shown at the Melbourne event is an updated range from MDC – the AUS RV XK MKII. Designed to suit both couples and families, this off-road and off-grid pop-top range includes a 13’ and a 15’ model. The new updated features include the graphics, TV antenna and an upgrade to the solar power.
Apart from the new upgrades, the standard inclusions are very impressive with the roof lifting mechanism being power-operated, roomy storage box at the front, lithium battery and monitor, ESC, air-con and plenty more. The 15’ layout provides a king bed which is a slide out plus the twin bunks while the 13’ model has the king slide-out bed.
Advertised prices are given in the range of $70,000 for the 13’ to $75,000+ for the larger model. One of the best news items regarding these particular models is the word that apparently, limited vehicle numbers are available for delivery immediately. After a long period of supply issues in the caravan market, this will come as a much-welcomed sign for buyers eager for a RV for a summer holiday.
With limited supply vehicles, especially in a high demand market, having finance arranged asap can be a distinct advantage. Speak with us to get your pre-approved Secured Caravan Loan sorted so you are ready to buy.
Caravan Finance News
For now six months consequently, the RBA has lifted the cash rate. The Board’s October decision to increase the rate by 0.25% lifts the official rate to 2.6%. Quite a hike from the 0.1% before the May 2022 increase. These substantial rises, as described by the RBA, may have put the plans of some caravan buyers in limbo as the lending market in general responds with rate rises.
Despite the general caravan loan interest rate rises, we continue to achieve better rates for RV. Achieving the cheapest rate is critical to ensuring the cheapest overall caravan finance. The RBA says that further rate rises are expected in order to get inflation back down to the target level which is 2-3%.
With two more Board meetings for 2022, there is a possibility that we will see another rise in 2022. The October increase was less than most expected at 0.25% instead of 0.5%. That may or may not set a trend for smaller rises in coming months.
Buyers are encouraged to action purchasing plans with finance by applying for pre-approved caravan finance to secure loans prior to the next increases.
