How To Choose The Best Off-Road Caravan For Your Travels
There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to finding the best off road caravan. Lucky for you, our team at Fantasy Caravan knows absolutely all you need to know when it comes to finding the right travel vehicle for your next adventure. To get you off on the right foot, here are just a few of the top questions and considerations you should ask yourself before choosing your caravan:
Who does this caravan need to sleep?
One of the first questions to ask is how many people need to sleep inside. If you’re taking the kids you’ll probably want a caravan from the family range.
What type of terrain or weather conditions do you plan to travel in?
Off-road caravans come in a spectrum – with some being better suited to more extreme travelling conditions than others. That’s why it’s good to get a grasp of where and what type of terrains you expect to travel in to narrow down your options.
How long do you travel at a time? E.g. a week, month, etc.
Off-road caravans are built to last long periods of travel around Australia, but there will be better models for those who want to travel for a few weeks at a time, versus those who plan to travel months on end.
How heavy is your load when travelling?
Be sure to consider the maximum loading capacity when choosing your off-road caravan. Some heavy loads that are often stored while travelling off road include: large water tanks, bike racks, roof-mounted solar panels, firewood, and more.
How comfortable or experienced are you in driving heavy vehicles?
Our caravans have been designed for comfortable driving, however, it is important to note that heavier caravans require more careful driving than a lighter one.
How much floor space do you need?
The amount of floor space you’d want can depend on how much time you plan to spend inside your caravan, how many people you plan to travel with, and ultimately comes down to your personal preference.
Can you perform basic fixes or maintenance?
Even if you’ve owned a caravan before or you’re a first-time off-road caravan buyer, our team at Fantasy Caravan can help you learn how to do all the basic fixes and show how you can readily maintain your caravan for all year round off-road adventures.
