    Tips To Help You Choose A Caravan to Renovate

     When selecting an old caravan for your permanent caravan living conversion, there are some crucial factors you should consider:

    1. Size: The size of the caravan plays a pivotal role in determining what features you can incorporate into your living space. If you plan to include a shower and toilet, opt for a larger caravan. For those considering amenities like bunk beds for kids, a caravan upwards of 22ft is advisable. Keep in mind that external showers can also be an option based on your specific needs and budget.

    2. External Structure: Ensure the caravan you choose has a solid, sturdy structure to manage renovation costs effectively. Inspect the seals and the underside of the caravan. While some rust is treatable, be cautious of any signs of water damage.

    3. Internal Structure: For a comprehensive renovation, the internal structure is less critical. Focus on checking that the electrical system and water are in working condition. Other interior elements can be renovated as needed.

    4. Price: The cost will vary based on the size and age of the caravan. If the exterior is sound, most of your budget will be allocated to internal renovations, which is the goal. As a general guideline, allocate around 25% of your budget to purchasing the caravan and 75% to the renovation.

    5. Important Note: When purchasing a caravan, you will receive a gas certificate and a roadworthy certificate from the seller. If you’re still having doubts consider our caravan inspection service, conducted at our premises. This service provides you with a professional assessment of your prospective purchase.
