When Purchasing a Caravan there are many things you should check and consider

    - IF NOT, you will need to get a Caravan Safety Certificate, Caravan Gas Certificate and HVRAS Measurement Inspection to apply for your new


    - IF IT IS, just a Caravan Safety Certificate and Caravan Gas Certificate is required to transfer ownership.

- Does the Caravan have any money owing on it? Is it on the written off vehicle register?

    - You should conduct a PPSR check on the caravan, this check will be done using the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)

    - Please visit the PPSR web site the check is under $4.00 to complete the search   

- When was the last full caravan service? (bearing service)

- Does the roof leak

- Do all the appliances work

- Are all the keys available

When purchasing a Caravan you should always get a second opinion! This Van recently had a roadworthy done by one of our biggest competitors, as you can see here there are many incomplete and un-professional welds on this a-frame.
