Attributes of Caravan Lifestyle
Just to add weight to our earlier statements, caravans offer freedom and flexibility with your holiday and travel plans and even your work plans. If you can work from home, then possibly you can work from your caravan, at the location of your choice.
Most caravan owners will have their vehicle ready to go at most times so they can head off virtually at a moment’s notice. Once on the road, you can stay as long or as short a time as you like, depending on your other commitments of course,
Except for reserving a site at a holiday park, there is no complicated booking process involved. If you head off-road in an off the grid equipped van there are plenty of free camping sites across the country which involve no bookings and no fees.
If travelling through a range of climates, you can take as much luggage as your vehicle allows without incurring surcharges and weight restrictions such as apply on airlines. And you can take your recreational toys and sports equipment such as bikes, small boats, canoes and other paraphernalia.
There’s a great community on the road and plenty of opportunities to meet new people and share experiences.
Wide Range of Models and Prices
Whether you’re travelling solo, duo or with a full complement of friends and/or family, you’ll find a caravan model to suit your requirements but it's better with a great caravan loan. Australia has an extremely active, reputable and high standard caravan manufacturing industry and builders offer a wide range of models in their collections.
Under the umbrella category which is typically referred to as ‘caravans’ you will find traditional and off road caravans, camper trailers, campervans, RVs, toy haulers and mobile homes. Buyers select the model that suits where they intend to travel and what activities they plan to engage in while away.
Another buying consideration is your towing vehicle. Some smaller vans can be towed with medium sized passenger cars rather than larger vehicles. While RVs suit those that don’t want to take a separate towing vehicle. Campervans are ideal for the carefree that don’t need much space and no special driver licence or skill is required to operate most models.
Prices range from the budget models available from most manufacturers right through to ‘penthouses on wheels’ style caravans. The level of luxury that is incorporated into some models is mind-blowing! But buyers can make their selection based on price and can choose to include or not include many of the optional extras. Many caravans are built to order which gives buyers the opportunity to set theirs up to suit budget and travel style.
