Jul 22nd 2015 at 3:52 AM

Caravanning is surely fun and adventure and even if you have plans this holiday for caravanning, you surely have plans to buy caravan. Buying a caravan calls for quite an investment and if you plans to save a little by buying a used caravan there are many things that you should keep in mind. Preferably, one should choose the most reputed used caravan dealer in UK, one who has caravans from all the best brands and claims to have the best quality used caravans.

First of all you need to decide the exact purpose and need of the caravan as per the size of the group and as per the basic comfort or luxury you do not want to compromise on. This would decide for the type of caravan along with the size and weight of it. This should match with your towing car, don’t forget this, a mismatch can be painful. Pick a dealer who can render a technical help in this concern. The next is surely the price at which you are getting. There should be enough profit that you are leaving a chance to buy a new caravan. Get an approximate idea about the uniform prices offered around for a similar caravan and feel free to bargain as well. The dealer must have kept a negotiating margin. Keep in mind that you need to buywhole lot of other essentials such as gas cylinders, leisure battery, fresh and waste water carriers, security locks etc. also. If you are lucky dealer may offer few of these accessories also with the caravan. Keep your budget and caravan rice range accordingly.

Before fixing the final price check certain internal and external features of the used caravan. Carefully check the exterior bodywork, windows, opening and shutting mechanisms for any dents, scratches, blisters, cracks or discolouring. Check for all the locks with the matching keys available. Security locks are very important key feature while caravanning. Carefully see the working condition of corner steadies and the corner winder tool. Some other things that should be checked that they are properly functioning or not are nose weight, courtesy lights, gas regulator and gas gauge, waste outlet syastem, external sockets, awnings rails, leisure battery. After this check the internal needs and luxuries whether they are in working condition. The most important is the tyre condition and the related accessory.

Check all this properly and see what all changes are needed for sure and then accordingly pay a price.So go pick a caravan from used caravan sales in UK smartly.
