When it comes to buying a caravan, there are a number of mistakes that plenty of novices make, which could greatly affect them financially, mentally and even emotionally. As a caravan is not a cheap purchase that is made on a whim, it is important to ensure that you make the right buy – otherwise you may find yourself stuck between a proverbial rock and a hard place. If you are a first time buyer, be sure to avoid the following mistakes:
Mistake #1: Buying the wrong caravan for your car
Towing a caravan with the right sort of car should be the prime concern for most travelers, as using the wrong sort of vehicle poses a serious hazard (both to yourself and other drivers on the road), could result in a hefty fine or the loss of demerit points on your license, and can actually make your insurance invalid if you are involved in an accident. Find out how much weight your car can safely (and legally) tow and do not buy a van that exceeds that.

Mistake #2: Buying a caravan that has been stolen or written off
Seeing blue and red flashing lights in your rearview mirror often receives a negative reaction from many drivers – was I speeding; is one of my brake lights out; did I go a red light back there? Imagine your reaction, however, if it turns out that you are being placed under arrest for stealing a caravan. Before handing over your money to a private seller, it is important that you do some research and determine whether your new van has reported as stolen or written off.
