Guide to buying a new touring caravan
If you’re like me and your first venture into owning a caravan saw you take a path down the pre-owned route, buying a newer touring caravan model was seemingly just a pipe dream. I too lusted after newer gleaming models that had more mod-cons than my cherished first caravan. I knew my caravanning experience from years previously would have me hooked on owning my own freedom holiday. If I could have had the cash at the time I may have taken the plunge in buying new, but in my haste would and could have made a very expensive mistake. In other words rushing into buying a new tourer without going into the pros and cons of what you need can be disastrous.
What I learnt made me realise what caravan I would need when it came to the time of my new purchase. I come across a steady flow of folk who rushed and bought a brand new caravan only to realise that the model they chose didn’t suit their needs as a couple or family. They end up having to spend extra time and money eventually finding a model that suits them and if that time on the first purchase had been spent wisely, then they would have already saved money to buy some accessories or a deposit to their next caravan upgrade.
