Caravan Buyers Guide News

We’ll be posting news about the guide here as well as any general news items that we think may be of interest to caravan buyers.


Lemon Caravans


Choice Magazine Australia has this month published an important article about “lemon” (or useless) caravans. You can read it here:

Until the industry is better regulated, consumers need to educate themselves about the pitfalls involved in buying caravans and how to avoid them.  There are a few simple steps to follow and some common sense precautions to take.

The Caravan Buyers Guide contains the information you need on making sure that you don’t buy a “lemon” caravan.


eBook Now Available


An electronic version of the Caravan Buyers Guide is now available. You can now download and read the full guide on any digital device that can read Adobe PDF files. So for the price of a couple of caravan magazines you can now receive 200 pages of independent, advert-free advice on buying a caravan.

Should you prefer a print copy for your your bedside table or glovebox, this is still available at $34.95 including free postage.


Caravan Buyers Guide Provides Timeless Information


We often get asked if the Caravan Buyers Guide includes up to date information about the latest caravan models on sale. The guide is written to arm prospective purchasers with key information and principles that lie behind the purchase of any caravan. Without an understanding of these basic principles it is easy for buyers to be swayed by a sales pitch or marketing brochure. Caravan manufacturers don’t have to live in their caravans – you do.  So arm yourself with the fully independent research provided by the Caravan Buyers Guide and head into your purchasing negotiations with confidence.
