What is the size of pitch that the static caravan will be sited on?
Knowing the exact size of the pitch in advance will help you to choose the right static caravan and will save you a lot of time and trouble when searching for a static caravan for sale off site, or when visiting a static caravan dealer.
Are you looking for a new or a used static caravan for sale off site?
New static caravans generally cost more than used static caravans for a variety of reasons. One reason is that new caravans tend to have more features and amenities than older models. Another reason is that new caravans have not been subjected to the same amount of wear and tear as older models, which can lead to increased maintenance costs down the road. Additionally, new static caravans may come with a warranty from the manufacturer, while used caravans typically do not. Ultimately, the decision of whether to purchase a new or used caravan depends on a variety of factors, including budget and personal preferences.
Will you need central heating and double glazing?
Central heating and double glazing are two of the most popular features in static caravans, and for good reason. Central heating ensures that your caravan is warm and comfortable, even in the middle of winter. Double glazing helps to keep out drafts and noise, and also provides an extra layer of insulation. As a result, your caravan will be more energy-efficient and easier to heat. In addition, central heating and double glazing can help to prolong the life of your caravan by protecting it from the elements. With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that these two features are so popular among static caravan owners.
What is your budget?
Newer static caravans, those with central heating and double glazing, and larger static caravans may require a larger budget. Also, if there is long distance to deliver the static caravan this may cost more.
