Owning a Family Caravan
Posted on

One of the greatest things a family can do is travel together towing the family van, either to that regular seaside location, or to somewhere completely new! There are many benefits to owning a caravan, the least of which is that your “home away from home” is always available when you travel. There’s no need to stay in an uncomfortable or expensive hotel or motel when you’ve got your own caravan.

The Downsides of Caravan Ownership

However, caravan ownership is not without its downsides, so there are several things you need to consider before purchasing a caravan for your family. One of the first things that needs to be considered is the towing vehicle. Some people already own the vehicle they’re going to be towing their caravan with, and may thus be restricted as to what they can purchase. Some potential caravan owners believe that if they’ve got a “big car” it will be equipped to tow anything, but this is not always the case. It’s really important to check the towing capacity of your vehicle before purchasing a caravan. Of course, if you’re purchasing the caravan first, this isn’t generally an issue as you’ll be able to purchase a towing vehicle to suit.

Making the Most of Your Caravan in the Off Season

Another of the issues the family van can cause is actually finding a place to keep it when you’re not on holidays! Some people set up their caravan permanently in a particular caravan park, which is fine if they want to visit the same place year after year. Many more, however, get a van precisely so they can travel to different destinations.

In this case, you’ll need somewhere to keep it, which is something to consider, particularly if space is limited. Some people work around this by getting an additional benefit out of their caravan: an extra family space for the home! A luxury caravan can be quite comfortable accommodation for elderly parents or teens, and when the caravan is being used for holidays, the family member can either come along too, or mind the house. Some may find their family caravan provides a useful and private home office, or maybe just gives them a little “time out” from the family hustle and bustle.

How to Choose the Best Caravan

When choosing a family van the most important thing is to consider what your needs are. It’s a great idea to have a look at a number of caravans as well as floor plans, and consider everything your family needs, bearing in mind that three young kids will be teens in just a few more years, and that over time family needs may change. It’s best if a long term investment like a caravan is purchased with that in mind. Creative Caravans are always available to help you find the best caravan for your needs, whatever they may be, and can even custom build caravans to suit the individual.

Why Choose an Off-Road Caravan
Posted on

For many people, just owning a caravan isn’t enough, because they need an off road caravan to get the full caravan experience they desire. While some are happy to keep off the beaten track and spend their nights at resort style caravan parks, others want to see the great outdoors at its finest and experience terrain that the average caravan just can’t handle.

Why Choose an Off Road Caravan?

What if you’re not sure whether an off road caravan is for you? Many travellers don’t necessarily have all their destinations in mind when they first purchase a caravan. They may be remembering childhoods spent visiting various places with mum and dad, staying overnight in the old family caravan, and have similar visions for their own future, but without considering the details. A caravan designed for off road travel can open up so many more destinations, and is something which any keen caravaner should consider.

What Makes an Off Road Caravan Different?

Some of the advantages of an off road caravan include the ability to go to places the average caravan just cannot. Some caravans are destined only for caravan parks, which isn’t always the most exciting option. With an off road caravan there’s extra equipment that allows for extended stays away from civilisation and the convenience of caravan park facilities. Such a caravan is also built tough, to withstand more difficult conditions.

Equipment You Can Expect to See

So how much freedom do you really get with an off road caravan? As long as it’s a well designed and built model, a quality caravan can go most places a 4WD vehicle can go, which may mean bumpy bush tracks in the outback or up in the mountains, where most caravans would fear to tread! Having an off road caravan also ensures that if you do end up in some unexpected circumstance, your caravan is much more likely to withstand any difficulties, and you’ll have luxury accommodation to boot. Many caravaners have had the unfortunate experience of driving up to a caravan park in peak season only to discover it’s full; with an off road caravan this is little more than an annoyance.

To find out more about the benefits of an off road caravan, visit Creative Caravans and have a look at some of their designs. If you’ve got anything specific you need, feel free to discuss that with them too, as most conveniences can be included in an off road design.

The benefits of a Tanami Caravan
Posted on

The Tanami Caravan range is extremely popular, and for some very good reasons. They’re constructed solidly to last for years and years, and yet are extremely comfortable – even luxurious, making holidaying more pleasurable than ever. Caravans are great whether you’ve got a growing family, or you’re retirees ready to travel wherever the mood takes you.

Extra Comfort for the Whole Family

The Tanami family design is extremely popular with kids and parents, because it’s specifically designed with the end user in mind. Many caravans have just a solitary double bed, and then expect the kitchen/dining area to double up as a bedroom for the kids at the end of the day, which means that not only can the kitchen and living area not be used past bed time, but the kids don’t get a particularly pleasant night’s sleep either! However the Tanami family model has a triple bunk bed in a private space, so everyone gets a great night’s sleep.

Added Extras Make the Tanami Extremely Popular

What really makes the Tanami caravan stand out, are the added luxury extras that are included. Some of these include comfortable beds with pillow topped mattresses, air conditioning (fantastic for travelling in those hot summer months, when some caravans can become like ovens), a full sized oven, cook top and microwave, a full sized bathroom, as well as luxury fittings and furnishings throughout. Most owners find they’re so much more comfortable than they would be staying in a regular motel room, and it’s much more fun to be able to travel somewhere new each time!

The Tanami Caravan Can Suit a Multitude of Needs

When choosing a Tanami caravan it’s important to consider the long term use of the caravan and your changing needs. Obviously, a couple with young children will have different needs to a retired couple who want to travel extensively through the countryside. One will need extra room for growing kids, and the other may want extra room for storage or hobbies (particularly if the plan is to travel for months – or longer – at a time).

Choosing a Tanami Doesn’t Have to be Difficult

Purchasing a Tanami Caravan can be a rewarding experience, and Creative Caravans can help you get the exact model you need. It’s also possible to custom fit a Tanami caravan to your exact specifications, whether you need a little extra storage, or some other form of convenience which will make your holidaying more peaceful and pleasant. Creative Caravans are always available for a chat and will happily provide you with a quote for any caravan you may be interested in.

Choosing your Tanami Caravan
Posted on

The Tanami Caravan is a custom built design with the needs of the end user firmly in mind. Whether you’re a couple with no kids (or kids who have flown the nest) or have a family, there’s a caravan from the range at Creative Caravans to suit. These caravans are custom designed so if there are any changes or modifications desired, these can be carried out prior to construction, ensuring that the caravan you buy meets your needs one hundred percent.

Why Buy a Caravan?

There are numerous reasons why the Tanami Caravan range is so popular. For starters there’s the comfort of travelling with your own “home away from home”. A caravan is ideal because it can be towed from destination to destination, giving you the ability to travel wherever you desire, whether it’s a big trip around the country, or smaller trips to various locations. When you’re a caravan owner there’s no need to book a hotel or motel, as your home travels with you. If you’ve got the wrong caravan, however, this can be a drawback rather than a benefit! Old style cramped caravans can make family holidays a nightmare, particularly if few of the comforts of home are available.

A Caravan Can Be “A Luxury Motel Room on Wheels”

The Tanami Caravan range include luxuries such as air conditioning (pretty important when you’re travelling in the hot Australian summer months, which is one of the most popular times to holiday, particularly for families), flat screen TV, pillow topped mattresses, three bunk beds each with attached DVD players (in the family model), a microwave, good sized refrigerator, full oven and hot plates, good sized bathroom and other such comforts. Why pay to stay in a motel when you’re virtually carrying a motel room on wheels?

Making the Right Choice For Your Needs

Many interested travellers consider the Tanami Caravan range when they’ve weighed up the pros and cons of being caravan owners and have decided in favour, knowing that with the right caravan they’ll spend their time in comfort, no matter what part of the country they’re visiting. If you’ve been looking for a caravan to suit the needs of your family, come in to Creative Caravans and have a first hand look at the Tanami range. You can discuss your individual needs with our friendly staff, who can help tailor solutions to whatever problems you might have, in order to ensure your caravan experience is as enjoyable as possible.
