Deciding to buy a pre-loved or used caravan is a practical choice for exploring the great outdoors. With so many new and used caravan options available in Geelong, it can be a bit overwhelming to decide. So before you make a purchase, there are a few things you need to consider to confidently hit the road.

Assess the vehicle layout

The first step in purchasing a used caravan is to carefully assess your needs and preferences regarding the vehicle’s layout. Do you want a cosy, compact space for solo adventures or a spacious interior to accommodate your family or friends? Maybe essential features such as a bathroom or full kitchen is of upmost importance? Whatever it is, choose a layout that offers functionality and comfort that works best for you and your loved ones.

Understand towing capacity

Safety is paramount when it comes to towing a caravan, especially a used one. Before making a purchase, it’s crucial to understand your vehicle’s towing capacity and ensure that the caravan you choose falls within that limit. Exceeding the recommended weight limit can not only compromise your safety on the road but also lead compliance and Insurance issues.

To determine the towing capacity of your vehicle, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions or consult with a knowledgeable caravan towing team like Patto’s. Additionally, consider investing in towing accessories such as a McHitch automatic trailer coupling.
