Caravans provide great freedom and flexibility in travelling but with traditional caravans, there is often a premium on space. Depending on the vehicle you have for towing your caravan, the options for taking your toys - bikes, boats, watercraft etc - can be limited or non-existent. If you're the active type that wants to take your recreational equipment with you on your caravan adventure, then we suggest you consider a toy haulers.
Toy hauler is a category or type of caravan which has specific features and inclusions for carrying ‘toys’ such as motorbikes, kayaks, canoes, jet skis, small tinnies, mountain bikes and other heavy recreational equipment. Typical features of toy hauler can include a fold down back wall which easily converts to a platform or deck and ramp to load the toys. Inside, space is especially set aside for safe stowage of the equipment. Some designs may contain the ‘carrying’ component to external bars or connections specifically designed for certain items.
If considering buying a toy hauler, be assured, Jade Caravan Finance provides our full lending service and cheap finance for this category of caravans. There are quite a few toy haulers available on the Australian market with sizes and price range to cover many budgets. We’ve selected just a few to highlight and we highly recommend you try to attend a caravan and camping show to see these terrific caravans in person.
