caravans & rvs

Hansy Mannil Jul 10, 2023

There's really nothing like hitting the road and knowing at any time you can stop somewhere, set up camp and relax somewhere serene, and at a moment's notice pack up and head off again.

If you've been considering buying a camper trailer, caravan or RV, you might think this time of year isn't the best to take the plunge. But think again!

Socks and jocks are so last season, so this year why not treat yourself to a holiday on wheels - without breaking the bank. Here's why the holiday season is ideal to go shopping for your new camper.

The year's drawing to a close, and so are the current models

As we draw closer to the night of fireworks, a couple of cool drinks with friends and the countdown into 2020, caravan, RV and camper trailer dealers know all too well that their current model-year (MY) stock will be less attractive to buyers than the shiny new MY2020 models (even if the only upgrade is a 10mm X 10mm reflector on the undercarriage that'll never be seen by anyone. Ever).

You might even like to take this a step further and actually wait until 2020 when the new MY is released, then head into the dealership and negotiate on the 2019 stock.

Fortunately for you, this can give you something of an upper hand when negotiating with them on price. Speaking of which, it's always a good idea to have a price in mind before you visit a dealership, and walk away if you're unhappy.

Help dealerships hit their targets

This is more of a 'help them to help yourself' situation but as it's the festive season it's nice to think your actions are helping others, right?

A dealership may be near their sales target for the month, and with less foot traffic through the showroom due to people's overall busy-ness of last-minute preparations for Christmas, yours may just be the sale that gets them over the line. Alternatively, if there's been a dip in sales, they might be in the right mindset to work with you more than usual to get some ‘runs on the board'.
