Used caravans can either be offered for sale by dealers or private sellers. For each of these, different legal obligations exist under the law. Dealers are under obligation to only sell used caravans that satisfy the requirements that the buyer intimates to the seller at the time of purchase. Where dealers want to avoid this obligation, they are most likely going to post their ads posing as private sellers. This gives them the opportunity to evade their legal obligations.
Once you have ascertained which type of caravan you are interested in it is important to conduct extensive research on the same and ensure that you understand as much as possible about it. Since used caravans are usually past models, there are many caravanning enthusiasts who own them and can offer advice on whether to purchase the same as well as any issues to look out for. Internet forums are a great place to start when searching for these answers.
While continuing with your research, it is important to check with the relevant vehicle registration authorises on the status of the caravan you wish to purchase. Has the caravan been reported as stolen? Is there any outstanding debt on the caravan? These are just a few of the questions to ask when researching on the status of used caravans.
Once you have ascertained that a given caravan is good for purchase the next thing you should do is ask for a chance to view and inspect it if buying from a private seller or visit the dealership when buying from a dealer. If you are not sure what to look for it is recommended that you hire the services of a qualified mechanic to help inspect the used caravans.
