Free-Standing vs. Fixed Sofas in a Static Caravan

One of the consideration when looking at used static caravans for sale is the design and condition of the sofas and chairs. The sofa is one of the largest pieces of furniture in a static caravan (along with the beds) and it needs to be comfortable, practical, and stylish. There are two main types of sofas in new and used static caravans: free-standing and fixed. In this blog post, we’ll compare the two types of sofas to help you decide which one is right for your caravan.

Static Caravans – Comfort

When it comes to comfort, for some buyers, fixed sofas have the edge over free-standing sofas. This may be because Fixed sofas, which usually occupy the full width and round the corners of the front window area of new and used static caravans are usually very spacious and have plenty of cushions. This can make them seem as though they are more comfortable for relaxing and sleeping on. Fixed sofas can also feel as though they have better support, particularly for the back and neck. However, larger and newer static caravans tend to be designed to have free-standing, and very comfortable sofas and armchairs in many different designs. It’s really down to the size and make/model of the static caravan, personal preference, and the overall features, the condition, and the price of the static caravan that can determine whether it looks right for a particular buyer.
