Considerations when choosing a static caravan 

A static caravan can be a fantastic holiday home for families, or a useful addition to your private property. But what are the important considerations when choosing a static caravan? And what should you look out for?

What are the important considerations when choosing a static caravan?

When choosing a static caravan, there are a number of considerations to take into account in order to make the best decision for your requirements and budget. These considerations include:

  • The size of the caravan 
  • The condition of the caravan 
  • The cost of the caravan 
  • The location 

Choosing the right size caravan 

One of the most important things to consider is the size of the caravan, and its important to choose one that will best suit your requirements. Static caravans are available in a variety of sizes, from small one-bedroom models to larger three-bedroom models, so it is important to think about how many people will be using the caravan and how much space you will need.

In addition, it’s important to consider the size of the siting pitch and the available space. The majority of static caravan models have a standard width of 10 or 12 foot and a standard length of 28 to 38 feet. As a result, the caravan you choose needs to be large enough for your requirements, but it also needs to fit within the pitch size available at your chosen location.

Consider the condition of the caravan

Buying a used static caravan can save you a lot of money but it’s important to make sure that this is in great condition. This is because while older caravans may be cheaper, they may also require more maintenance and repairs. It is important to inspect the caravan carefully before making a purchase to ensure that it is in good condition. When you choose a caravan from us here at West Lancs Caravans, you can be sure that all of our used caravans are in fantastic condition and are ready to be used and enjoyed by new owners.

Determine your budget when choosing a static caravan

Setting a budget for your static caravan can help to narrow down your choice range and help you focus on caravans that will be within your price range. Because static caravans vary so much in price, it’s a good idea to have a top end budget so that you don’t overspend. Don’t forget to factor in the cost of any necessary repairs or upgrades that may be needed.

Location considerations for the caravan 

Finally you will need to consider where you would like your new caravan to be. Whether you’re looking for a caravan for your own land or property, or you are wanting to set up on a caravan or holiday park, it’s important to consider this. Not only will this factor into the size options for the caravan but it may also increase the cost too. Here at West Lancs Caravans we have the tools, equipment and experience to transport and site your caravan at the perfect place.
