4 factors to consider before buying a caravan

Buying a holiday home is often one of the biggest purchases a person will make, which makes choosing the right park and caravan essential for having a great holiday time and time again. With this in mind, let’s take a look at what you need to consider before taking the plunge.

1. The park

If you’re opting for a static caravan or luxury lodge, you need to carefully consider the park you choose, so think about what factors will make your time there enjoyable year after year. For example, if you have kids, activities and entertainment might be essential, or you might even be looking for a site that offers full accessibility for people with disabilities. Fantasy Island’s holiday park is located right in the heart of Ingoldmells and is just a two-minute walk to the amusement park. What could be better?

2. Your budget

There are a number of costs associated with having a caravan, so make sure you understand these before agreeing to a sale. For example, does the park you’re looking at charge site fees? And what about insurance costs, council rates (if applicable), gas and electric?

3. The local area

You don’t just need to consider the park when purchasing a caravan or holiday lodge, what’s the surrounding area like? If you’re the kind of person who likes to venture out and explore, do your due diligence and check out the local town to see if this is the kind of place you could imagine spending a lot of time in. Ingoldmells is on the East Coast of Lincolnshire, close to Skegness and a stone’s throw away from the beach, making it a great destination for the entire family.

4. The caravan

Caravans come in a range of styles and layouts, so you need to take a few things into consideration before making a purchase. Factors to consider include how many beds you’ll need, how much space you want – e.g. would you prefer a larger kitchen or a spacious living area? – and accessibility needs if required.
