If you didn’t make it to Sydney for the Rosehill Supershow in April, why not head to one of the upcoming regional caravan shows. There are a number of lifestyle and outdoor expos being held in May in both Victoria and Queensland which offer caravan enthusiasts plenty to see and buy. For anyone attending a caravan show with the intention of buying a caravan, arriving equipped with pre-approved caravan finance, such as caravan loans, can be a distinct advantage.
Caravan enthusiasts tend to be extremely organised and keen to acquire information and knowledge that will enhance their travels and holiday experiences. We oblige with information on the upcoming regional shows with a caravan and RV component, hints to be prepared on arrival and details on how to acquire a pre-approved caravan loan before the day.
Victorian Regional Caravan Show
For Victorians or those travelling in the state over the next week or so, why not head to Ballarat for the Great Outdoor and 4x4 Expo. It’s being held over the weekend of 6th to 8th May at the Ballarat Showgrounds. The location is Howitt Street and Creswick Road Wendouree, Ballarat.
Tickets are very reasonably priced at $16 for adults, $13 for concession and children under 16 years of age that are accompanied by a paying adult are admitted free. Also free – car parking!
This show covers a wide range of exhibitors of outdoor and lifestyle interest with attractions and interest for many people.
Queensland Regional Caravan Shows
With border restrictions gone, many caravanners have been heading north to escape the arriving cold in the southern states – great move! Also a good move – drop into one of the caravan shows happening in northern Queensland during May.
First on the calendar is the Cairns Expo. Billed as the home show with caravan, camping and boating expo, this event is sure to have plenty of interest for caravanners.
The show is on Friday 6th through to Sunday 8th May. Opening hours: Friday 8.30m-4pm, Saturday 8.301m-5pm and Sunday 8.30am-4pm.
Location is the Cairns Showgrounds with parking available onsite but with a $5 fee which goes to the Cairns Showground Association. Tickets can be purchased online with both one day and three day options available. A booking fee also applies.
Organisers have listed the exhibitors on the event website and those displaying their products include Jayco Cairns, Caravan HQ which handles brands such as Royal Flair, Network RV and On the Move Caravans, and Brisbane RVs.
The following weekend, enthusiasts can head to Townsville for the Townsville Expo over the weekend of 13th to 15th May. The location for this show is Reid Park on Boundary Street in South Townsville. As with the Cairns show, single and three day tickets are available. The displays and products will include home, lifestyle and adventure and over 100 exhibitors are expected.
The Queensland show circuit then heads to Mackay with the Mackay Home Show and Caravan, Camping and Boating Expo on the weekend of 20th to 22nd May. This will be held at the Mackay Showgrounds which is located in Milton Street. Tickets are available both online and at the gate.
That’s plenty of events to keep those keen on caravan and camping entertained in May and provide numerous opportunities to inspect some of the latest caravans on the market. So arrive prepared with a pre-approved caravan loan.
Advantages of Calculating Pre-approved Caravan Finance
Pre-approved loans are a great idea in many instances regardless of where and when the caravan purchase is occurring. But when attending a caravan show with a view to buying, it can be even more important.
Shows offer great opportunities to inspect many models from several brands in the one place. A situation which can make comparisons much easier. For those that have been browsing makes and models online to create a shortlist, the in-person show inspection can be the stage which finalises the purchase decision.
But if you make the decision on which caravan to purchase but don’t have your finance organised, you may not be actually ready to order. That can mean further delays in getting your caravan build commenced and more time before you can take delivery. Having your caravan finance arranged well in advance, possibly by using tools like a caravan loan calculator with balloon payment, can put you in the box seat to make decisions and take actions at the same time and speed up the entire process.
Pre-approved caravan finance is easy to arrange and with no obligation attached, if you don’t find the perfect caravan to purchase and hence don’t proceed with the loan, it’s not a problem. The same interest rates apply to pre-approved and post-purchase caravan loans so there is no cost differential involved there either.
To apply for a pre-approved loan, simply contact us for a quote or apply online. Our consultants handle the process from there and will get back to you with a quote and on your OK, proceed to the application approval. The loan amount can be estimated at this stage and finalised when the purchase is done and the invoice submitted from the dealer.
Now COVID-19 restrictions are almost gone, the caravan show calendar for 2022 is packed with opportunities to see the latest models and proceed with a purchase. So be prepared before attending and arrange a pre-approved caravan loan.
