For many people, the idea of owning a mobile home in a delightful location for frequent trips has enormous appeal. Whether you like to travel, have plans for your retirement or are simply excited by the idea of your own holiday base, then this is an option that is definitely worth looking into.
There are many compelling reasons for owning your own holiday base. One of the most compelling is the opportunity to take frequent trips. When you have a caravan in a lovely location, you can go to it whenever you feel the urge. You can be spontaneous as you never have to worry about booking a hotel or whether it is peak season and accommodation costs have gone through the roof.
With your own mobile home, you have total control over your accommodation. You get to pick where the caravan is located (View our locations), when you want to go to it and whether you would like to be accompanied by friends. There are no concerns about missing out or cancelled bookings because caravans in the sun are always there and ready, waiting for you.
If you have made travel a part of your life, then it is likely you have visited many appealing places. For many of us, there is one place that you really connect with, and a mobile home is a way of making sure you can go to this special place again and again.
With caravans in the sun, travel and frequent holidays can be a welcome and regular part of your life and you can extend invitations to friends and loved ones too. When you are not using the caravan, it is also possible to rent it out and this means you can earn extra income from it. Renting out your mobile home for a short time during peak season could earn you enough to cover the costs for most of the year, making caravans in the sun a very affordable and practical option.
When you visit your holiday base frequently, you will really get to know people there and start to forge strong bonds with your neighbours and make friendships that will enrich your life. You will get to know your chosen destination really well and start to feel as though you are part of the fabric of life there. This means that you never have to waste a minute of your precious holiday time figuring out the best things to see or do. When you’re a frequent visitor, you will know how you want to spend your time and can get on with your favourite activities immediately.
You can choose precisely the location that appeals to you most. This might be close to the beach, in a rural setting or in a spot where there are bracing walks and hikes. You can choose a place that offers all the activities and attractions that you enjoy – and then enjoy them over and over again.
Because you own the caravan, you can leave your personal items there which makes travelling so much easier and means that packing is a breeze. If you make sure your mobile home is well stocked with toiletries and pantry items, then there will never be panic about whether you brought shampoo or if there is something to snack on after arriving late at night.
That’s another benefit of having your own holiday base. You can kit the place out exactly as you like it. You can have a bed and mattress that is comfortable, the type of sofa that you like and the kitchen utensils you find convenient, or none at all if you don’t feel like cooking! For people who do like to cook, having their own kitchen equipped with all the conveniences they are used to can be a major benefit for frequent time away from home. This is especially true if you are following a particular dietary regime or have food allergies and need to eat meals prepared in a certain way.
This also means you can take advantage of fresh produce at local markets and make delicious, healthy meals from low-cost ingredients. Depending on what kind of place you have and where you locate it, you could also have your own barbecue facilities and use these not just for fun meals in warm weather but to entertain and share hospitality with all the new friends you have made in your home away from home.
You can add your own personality to your own holiday base and store sports equipment there too.
Travelling to your caravan can be a wonderful way of adding excitement and interest to your retirement. In retirement, you will have plenty of opportunities to visit and can make the most of this base all year round. If you choose a location that offers appealing activities in every season, then there will always be plenty to do and you can have fun experimenting.
