Everything You Need to Know About Buying a Static Caravan

 * Article contributed to by Sunrise Holiday Homes

Buying a static caravan is a big investment – not just financially but as a lifestyle purchase.

For most who browse and search for static caravans for sale, not only do they want a good and long term investment but something that they can enjoy for themselves or rent out as an extra source of income. Either way, a static caravan designed for regular use needs to be in good condition and well maintained – which is where this blog comes in.

In it, we’ve compiled some of the most frequently asked questions regarding the purchase and enjoyment of static caravans. And if you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, you can always get in touch directly!

Caravan Purchase: FAQs 

        What are the main features I need to consider?

Perhaps the most important thing to consider when buying a static caravan is its size and where you are going to place it. Typically, caravans are marketed and advertised according to the number of bedrooms, the size of the living area, and whether or not they have a self-contained or built-in outside space. Consider your budget and your user needs before buying.

        How do I move a static caravan from dealership to destination?

Most reputable suppliers and dealership sellers will offer a service to help move your caravan to its final destination. This includes delivery, levelling the ground, and siting the caravan – and will often include a site visit beforehand to assess the suitability. All of this comes at a price which needs to be agreed beforehand.

Caravan Ownership: FAQs 

        Where can I put my caravan?

A static caravan presents a versatile unit which can be used as anything from a home office to a self-contained guest house or granny annexe in your garden, your very own holiday home or rental on a plot of land, or something else entirely. Some caravan parks and sites may also allow you to move a static caravan onto their ground as a long term rental – however, these parks are few and far between as most have their own caravans for hire or sale.

        What does over-wintering involve?

Wondering how to protect your caravan over winter? If you’re a fair weather user and are wondering how best to winterise your static caravan, the main points to consider are draining the caravan of all water (which could otherwise freeze and damage the pipes), leaving cupboard doors open to allow air circulation, removing all food, and taking steps to reduce the formation and build-up of damp.

Where to find your perfect static caravan? 

Our final question – where can you find the right static caravan for you?

Dealerships tend to offer the most versatile selections, enabling buyers to browse according to their budget and preferences. You can also ask for advice on what to look for and how to make the most of your caravan.
