Caravans are widely considered a great way for families to enjoy holidays and travels. While many singles and couples have taken to the lifestyle, back when it all started so to speak, caravans were traditionally associated with family holidays. Especially with budget family holidays. But as the demands of travellers for more luxury inclusions have risen and the manufacturing industry has significantly increased sturdiness, safety and construction, the pricing is not so on a budget. Increasing the importance of securing cheap caravan finance.
When seeking to purchase a caravan or campervan to cater for the family there are many considerations in the buying decision. Regardless of how close-knit the family is, avoiding family feuds can be a challenge in a RV. Selecting a van that has space for everyone is important. But so is sticking to a budget.
Accommodating the entire family can require a larger and more expensive RV. But that doesn’t mean the caravan finance should be super-sized. Family vans can be acquired while taking very much a downsizing approach to the caravan loan.
We explore some of the new family sized caravan and campervan models and the downsized caravan finance available for their purchase.
A number of leading caravan manufacturers have recently released and/or teased details of new models which are ideal for family caravan holidays and touring. Major new releases are often made by manufacturers at the big caravan shows. If you can make it to these, great. If not, relax and browse online and consider these two we spied in the caravan industry news.
Lotus Family Caravan
At the Caravan Supershow in Victoria, Lotus Caravans unveiled a new family caravan – the Off Limits. According to reports, this is a triple-axle vehicle, built to suit off-road adventures and loaded with a heap of features to enhance the comfort factor and increase practicalities of family travelling.
For starters and practicality this model includes a separate parents’ zone at the front and bunks at the rear. The areas are separated by the lounge/kitchen and there are 4 bunks to suit largish families or so smaller family units can bring a mate.
It is built to take on all-terrains so you can plan adventures into awe-inspiring remote locations to really enjoy that special family time together. This caravan has 3 generous tanks for fresh water and a 50 litre one for the grey water. Four solar panels on the roof, lithium battery set-up and solar charger should cater for power requirements.
To cater for practicalities – staying connected and entertained, this model at the show included a booster unit for internet connection and antenna to accompany the large-screen television.
Plenty more great features included and with Lotus’ custom-built service, buyers can discuss their specific preferences with the manufacturer. When purchasing with finance, we advise to include all the options and extras required be ordered at the time of purchase. This should enable your Jade Caravan Finance consultant to include the price of these in your total loan amount.
Jayco Family Campervan
If you’re more a campervan than a caravan family, check out the latest family-suited campervan model from Jayco. The new JRV Campervan was on display at the recent Victorian show and attracted plenty of attention.
It is pitched as the perfect second vehicle by Jayco with clever marketing – suggesting why purchase a SUV when buyers can receive all the features of a JRV. And this campervan does tick a lot of boxes for active families. The campervan offers the convenience of not needing a towing vehicle so it can be utilised with regular ‘around town’ errands and days out as much as it can for holidays and getaways.
Based on a Fiat, the JRV has seating for four and offers a loft bed for children with a pop-top roof. Plenty of comforts and necessities such as hot water, a 90L fresh water tank and an 80L grey water tank. Check out the full specs at the Jayco website.
