If you have a young family and you like the great outdoors one of the ways to enjoy your leisure time together is to have a caravan on a chosen site that you can visit any time you like. Established caravan parks have all the facilities that you are likely to need; with ownership comes the chance to visit any time you like during the time when the park is open. That will not be twelve months a year but who wants a caravan holiday in January?
There are some annual expenses that you will need to consider including insurance, utilities and site rental but once you have made your purchase you have your holiday facility there for as long as you want it.
Hassle free holidays
It is nice to be guaranteed the sun and warm temperatures such as are found in the Mediterranean but not everyone likes the hassle of airport departure lounges, delays and crowds especially when travelling with small children. If it is just a matter of packing some clothing and getting the children in the car for a short drive there is so much less to worry about. With a caravan waiting, and one which you own and so can keep personal items there, you just have to think about enjoying yourself.
You may be sold on the idea of buying a caravan on a fixed site as opposed to actually towing to different places each year. If you are, you need to check with a specialist company that has different locations to consider, someone like Allens Caravans.
When you are thinking about location and facilities it is best to select somewhere that is self contained but also fairly close to a village or small town so that you can go out for anything you might need. In addition you will want to know there are day trips to nearby places that will keep the children entertained. It is best to remember that the place you select must be somewhere you would be happy to return to time and again.
You may try out a few locations before you actually make a final decision; a company with several alternative locations gives you that chance. Once you finally decide you may want financing; an established company is even likely to have its own financial packages with payment spread over a few years.
The room you need
You need to consider more than location and local attractions. If you are buying you want to be certain that the actual caravan you select is a suitable size. If you think your family might be going to expand then a little extra space may be needed.
While the family is young a caravan base is an ideal way to enjoy holidays together without the stresses of air flight and all that entails. It is an investment that retains its value whilst not being so expensive as to make the cost prohibitive. You will have other families around during the summer months, and plenty of new friends for your children to meet.
