After being wiped out for much of the last two years, it is fantastic for caravan buyers and enthusiasts to have a great calendar of 2022 caravan shows to look forward to. But there’s not much time to wait or waste as the first shows of the year are only weeks away. Genuine buyers that intend to use the shows to check out ranges, compare models and talk deals with manufacturers need to be ready to sign on the dotted line. Existing caravan owners that could be in the market for an upgrade also need to be prepared to commit.
We provide information on the 2022 caravan shows for the first quarter of the year and hints and tips for securing caravan finance prior to the show for buyers to be prepared to commit. Stock availability has been a major issue for manufacturers over the past two years and buyers will want to be in a position to act quickly to secure what makes and models are available for immediate delivery.

The Geelong Outdoor Living Show kicks off the Victorian show circuit on 21-23 January at Geelong Showgrounds.
