Caravans allow for unparalleled freedom when touring around the country (or abroad), unencumbered by a strict itinerary. You can go where you like, stop where you like*, all on a schedule that suits you – not your holiday operator.
Owning a caravan makes packing for your trip away relatively easy, without that constant fear associated with ‘suitcase travel’ of leaving something crucial behind. You can load up your van with relative speed and ease and away you go.
What’s more, with your own caravan, you needn’t worry about the cleanliness and facilities of third party static vans on camping sites. It’s very much like taking your second home with you and there’s a lot to be said for having some personal space that’s truly yours on holiday.
Caravan owners are free to make more of their leisure time. A caravan can be hooked up to a car in no time and you can be headed away for a weekend’s break with very little preparation or planning. And who doesn’t a love an impromptu mini-break in the sun?
For motorsport fans, a caravan would be perfect for making the most of a summer of motorsport action with the Goodwood Festival of Speed, coupled with the British Grand Prix held each July.
With in-season testing set to return to F1 from next season onwards, British petrolheads have an even greater treat in store.
One of the two day testing events is to be tacked on to the 2014 British Grand Prix. This allows fans the chance to get up close and appreciate F1 cars in all their glory at the home of British motorsport and at just a fraction of the cost of attending the Grand Prix weekend.
Of course, die-hard fans might want to attend both events next year and what could be better than rolling up in your new caravan before settling in for nearly a week’s worth of high octane action.
If water sports are your thing, what could be better than decamping down to the shore? With so many campsites being located next to beaches, having your caravan on the seafront is the next best thing to owning your own mobile beach hut. Cornwall has some fantastic surfing beaches on the north coast or, if calmer waters are more to your liking, the south coast provides perfect conditions for swimming, snorkelling and a whole host of other activities.
However, caravans can be expensive and rather than holding off, you may want to consider a caravan loan so you can start enjoying caravanning life sooner rather than later.
