With so many caravan sites dotted up and down the UK, spanning popular holiday hotspots and tourist destinations, you won’t be surprised to hear that static caravans are popular among holidaymakers and those seeking a new home away from home.
But while searching for static caravans for sale is popular with those seeking a long-term holiday destination, in this blog we’re considering some of the lesser-known and often unexpected uses of static caravans – showing just how versatile these structures can be.
1. Accommodation During Home Renovations And Building Work
Are you facing significant building work or renovations on your property? Buying a used or second-hand static caravan has become an increasingly popular way of granting yourself somewhere to call home throughout the duration of the work. Not only is a static caravan convenient in that it has all the facilities you need in a self-contained unit, but the versatility and flexibility of these caravans mean that they can be placed on-site so that you can keep an eye on the work being done.
2. A games Room Or Home Office
We are seeing an increasing number of customers seeking an additional room to add to their property, without having to extend or apply for planning permission to alter the layout of their property. Investing in a static caravan means that you can place an additional room in your garden or on a large driveway, which can then be used as a home office, playroom or games room, storage facility, or even somewhere for relatives to stay when they come to visit.
With so many different-sized static caravans available, spanning winterised models and classic models as well as open plan units and smaller and more contained fixtures, it couldn’t be easier to find a caravan which compliments the layout of your property inside and out and which fits the space available.
3. Extra Rental Income
We’re back with the holidaymakers for this option – but rather than reserving the static caravan for your own use as a home away from home, we’re embracing a more lucrative solution. If you decide to site your caravan in a coveted location which is favoured by holidaymakers and those looking to book a weekend or week away with the family, then why not repurpose your caravan as a means of extra rental income?
During the high season, static caravans can be rented out for short and longer stays, with our advice being to ensure that you work with a local cleaning firm to provide a quick and effective turnaround between bookings or spend time overhauling and cleaning the caravan yourself if you live nearby.
You could even offer a static caravan on your own property as a room to let, if you live somewhere that’s popular with tourists – again making a little extra money while using the caravan as an asset to pay for itself.
