There are important factors that one should look into when planning to purchase caravans. There could be plenty of stolen caravans up that are being sold. So it is best to purchase from a reputable dealer. Always remember to ask for registration documents and ownership papers that could verify the authenticity of the vehicle. Check if the number on the document matches the number inscribed on the vehicle.

Inquire about the repairs and servicing for the vehicle. Have a thorough and detailed look of the caravan. Check for dents, signs of repair, or even a new coating of paint that may be used to hide signs of corrosion. Have a look at the under chassis of the vehicle to check on its existing state. Check if the hand brake and jockey wheel functions and that the hitch’s movement is free moving and not restricted.
