Buying a new static caravan can be quite an investment, but it is a cost effective choice. They give you the freedom to go on holiday all year round, without having to fork out each time. You could choose to buy one separately, or one which is already situated in one of the many holiday parks North Wales has to offer.
However, there are things you should think about before buying your holiday home:
1. Your Finances
The first thing you’ll need to think about when buying your static caravan is the cost. Usually, you can buy a static caravan with a finance deal. You should always check a comparison site when looking at your options. You may even get a better deal taking out a loan from your bank. Holiday parks might offer you additional benefits if you purchase with them directly.
2. Find The Best Park Location
Sometimes it can be best to do this first, so you find something that fits within your budget, as well as your ideal surrounding and facilities. You can speak to the owners/managers of the caravan park once you have found one, to get more information on setting up your new home there.
Questions to ask yourself in regards to location and the type of holiday park:
- Do you want to be by the sea?
- Do you need facilities for children?
- Are pets allowed in the park?
- How far away from home is it? Will it take a long time to travel to it?
- Do you want to use it for weekends or longer holidays?
- How big is the holiday park?
- Is the park in a good condition?
3. Choose a Good Manufacturer & Style
It’s a good idea to go with a manufacturer that is based in the UK for warranty and guarantee purposes. The UK has a large range of manufacturers that have been running for years and are well established.
Once you have found a good manufacturer, you can take a look at the different ranges and styles of holiday homes they have. You’ll need to consider how large you want your home and how many bedrooms you will need. Make sure the caravan you choose will fit the pitch size at your chosen holiday park.
Look at any added extras such as central heating and insulation if you would like to use the caravan all year round. If you’re being extra luxurious, some holiday parks even let you have space for an outdoor hot tub.
