It is not just the financial cost thought it is also the emotional cost of being separated from your pets. You will find that many static ‘vans that are available to hire will allow one or two pets to stay in them. There is frequently a charge for this but more often than not it is significantly less than kennel fees.

Is there more thrilling and personal way to travel the countryside than going in style with a caravan or motor-home? You get the excitement of the open road while enjoying all the comforts of home. Some people enjoy a nice hotel room but you have to admit they lack a personal touch and you can't take it with your at your next holiday lodges destination. The only complaint I've heard from people about caravans is the stereotypical 70's décor image we all have. Thankfully, it is something which can be fixed.

Redesigning the interior of your caravan couldn't be easier. The small amount of space means a minimal, clutter free style is probably the way to go. I prefer simple darks yet stylishly colors, especially in a carpet. Go for contemporary looks and colors that don't need constant cleaning. Some people found vinyl flooring works great at some of the muddier holiday parks since it can be wiped clean in seconds.

When it comes to the kind of furniture, I would spend some extra money on items with multiple uses. This saves money in the long run and also gives you more room within the caravan. Recently, I just purchased a couch-bed which also contains storage space in the body so I can keep the bedding in during the daytime. It saves a great deal of room.

Caravan Awnings - Use Them to Improve Your Caravan Or Motorhome

The main points are:

  1. Do not purchase the caravan without first speaking to park management. Remember, you are buying a caravan off the owner. You then need to know the conditions of having it remain on site at the park.
  2. Ask for a copy of the Occupation Agreement. It includes park rules, annual costs, inclusions and other details. It should be lengthy. If it is only 2-3 pages long, then it is possible that the agreement does not comply with the legislation concerning on site caravans. The Government Act in NSW concerning on site vans in Holiday Parks is: "Occupation Agreement. Holiday Parks. (Long Term Casual Occupation) Act 2002".
  3. Discuss future plans with park management. How long can you anticipate having your caravan at their park? Do they have plans to replace your caravan with a cabin in 1-3 years? If so, will you be asked to remove your caravan or will they relocate to another site within the park?
  4. Does the caravan comply with local council and park regulations? Discuss this with park management. Sometimes caravans may be sold because they don't comply so you may have to get this work done.
  5. Discuss what you can or can't do to your caravan. If you want to add a deck for example, you will need to ensure that it is within site boundaries. You may have to get approval to even paint your caravan.
  6. Check out other caravans for sale within the park and nearby parks. If there are many for sale, try and find out why? A good park should have a low turnover of caravans for sale.
  7. What is included in the sale? Some include all furniture. Take photos of the interior at the time of inspection if it does.
  8. Do your sums! If you are not going to use the caravan on a regular basis, it may be cheaper to stay in one of the park cabins rather than paying out all your money for a couple of weekends each year.
  9. Investigate the park further. Will it be crowded when you plan to stay? What type of clientele do they attract? Is it oriented towards children? Is it pet friendly? We suggest you stay in an on site cabin for a night or two to get a "feel" for the park.
  10. Does the asking price sound reasonable? It it is too much, don't be afraid to ask why. Compare its price to other caravans in the same or nearby parks.

The most important thing to realise is that you are generally buying from the person who owns title to that caravan. It may be towable (a requirement if the caravan is in a flood liable area) or it may be on stumps or "tied to the ground". You are not generally buying rights to the space it currently occupies, just the caravan itself. You then need to pay an annual fee to the management of the caravan park for the privilege of having your caravan on site. This fee and what it covers varies form park to park.

If you follow these ten steps, you will be far less likely to be disappointed with your purchase. Remember, you are not just buying a used caravan. You are investing in your spare time and holiday aspirations.

Being a webmaster of a very popular camping and caravanning website I will get asked many questions on a daily basis and there does always tend to be a recurring theme amongst most of them, namely what is the difference between X type of caravan and Y type of caravan. Well here I hope to explain all of this in some detail so that it will hopefully clear up some of the confusion.

There are only really a few different types of caravans that are worthy of mention, mainly because the other type only generally make up no more than 0.1% of caravans, these being static caravans, touring caravans, motorhomes and park homes.

Static Caravans are generally between 20x8feet (length x width) and 38x14feet and on the whole are placed on a plot of a caravan park for the majority of their lives. Static caravans are not towable on public roads unless a support vehicle is behind the caravan and the roads are rated at over the weight of the caravan, as such they are generally transported on the back of lorries to and from locations. Static caravans are likely to have a lot of modern conveniences that you would expect from a modern home including double glazing, central heating and winter insulation.

Park Homes and Lodges are more similar to a static caravan than any other type mentioned before as they are comparable in size and the features that are available to them as standard though they will be moved around a lot less than a static caravan and generally will be of a higher spec, and also price. Things such as double glazing, air conditioning, central heating and other luxury features will be a lot more common as a standard feature in park homes and lodges. Park homes also have an advantage over static caravans in that they can increase their value over time making them more akin to a house than a caravan, despite the construction of them being more caravan like.

Boats, caravans, and motorhomes use 12 volt pumps in several applications. Fresh water (Potable/drinking water) supply pressure and delivery is maintained by pumps. Sewage or effluent water may be removed with the help of a pump. But what type of pump should be used in a particular application?

All pumps work on the principle of creating a vacuum into which liquid is drawn. Liquid moves into the pump because of the air pressure on the surface of the large body of liquid into which the pump is placed or connected with by an intake pipe or hose. There are two basic ways in which that vacuum is created, and these differences are reflected in centrifugal pumps and diaphragm pumps.

Centrifugal pumps are very simple. A rotating impeller inside the pump forces water away from the centre of the passage, thus creating the vacuum. This design makes them cheap to manufacture, easy to maintain, and submersible. However, they are usually not self-priming, and can't handle many solids in the liquid matrix. They also cannot maintain an even pressure. There is a seal which prevents water from leaking into the motor. If these pumps run dry for very long the seal can be damaged.

Marcle Leisure can supply various pump accessories such as additional filters, tubing, foot switches, non-return valves, expansion tanks (accumulators), and inline pressure switches.

Many 12 volt pump options are available from Marcle Leisure for caravan, motorhome, and small boat applications. By paying attention to the various types and brands of pumps and their capabilities the owner of a recreational vehicle can meet any need associated with the movement of liquids.
