If you’re thinking of buying a caravan there’ll be loads of questions you’d like answered. Well, we at Caravan World want to help you, so we’ve compiled here some of the basics such as what to look for ... and what to avoid.

Considering buying a touring caravan is quite a big step, with a commitment to invest a fair amount of money. And, if you’ve no experience of caravans, things like “What will my car be able to tow?” and “How much can I put in it?” may seem like almost unanswerable questions. This probably won’t tell you absolutely everything you’ve ever wanted to know about caravans, but we are sure it will point you in the right direction.

Is it hard to tow a caravan?
  • Not particularly – after all thousands do it! If you’re a bit wary, get DVDs or look on YouTube. There are also manoeuvring courses that you can enrole onto.

Will my car tow the caravan I want?
  • It depends on your accommodation needs – a small family car won’t pull a huge twin-axle caravan safely!

How do I choose the right caravan?
  • You’ll need to decide what facilities you need and what you can do without – this will depend on the size of your family, where you’ll stay, and what you’re happy to tow.

What can I put in my caravan?
  • On the road, the weight you’re carrying affects handling a great deal, as does how it’s packed. So only pack the essentials for the duration of your stay.
