Tips for fresh water whilst on tour

After spending a few days in a caravan, it’s a surprising discovery to see how much water us humans actually use on a typical day – a minimum of 23 litres.

This means you are going to be faced with carrying at least 23kgs from tap to caravan per person per day, unless you are lucky enough to have a fresh water supply direct to your site.

On top of taking care of your water supply, it is important to ensure you have clean tanks and plumbing.

In our article "Tips for fresh water whilst on tour", we provide you with our solution for transporting water to your caravan as well as information on cleaning your water containers, pipes and related equipment. We hope you find our tips helpful!

Why it's Smart to Get Caravan Insurance

Whether you’re planning a caravanning lap of Australia or just buying a caravan to enjoy short weekends away, it’s essential to insure your new home away from home.

As there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to caravan policies in Australia, choosing the right insurance policy can help you save money and give you peace of mind!

We hope you find our article on "Why it's Smart to Get Caravan Insurance" not only informative, but also ensure you have a stress-free and enjoyable holiday when out and about in your Euro Caravan.


How to Park Your Caravan Without Getting a Divorce

Whether parking your caravan for the first time or the millionth, it can be tricky. There is a technique to fitting the van perfectly into your site. Just like a marriage, it is all about teamwork. Below is a video from the experts from the Big4 Holiday Parks, sharing the tips you need to make parking your caravan a stress-free experience:

Euro Caravans Newsletter – January 2019

January Newsletter

Hi

Happy New Year from the Team at Euro Caravans! We hope you have been enjoying your summer break, and enjoying the great outdoors.

For the first newsletter of the new year, we have wanted to share with your some helpful tips to ensure you are making the most of your Euro Caravan, so our Featured Product is our caravan cover to protect the longevity of your caravan, we have shared a 'how to' video request from a customer, and for those who are dreaming of becoming full-time nomads, we shared our article on ways you can finance your nomadic dream 🙂

Remember, we have lots of news and information to share with you every week, so make sure you follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out on any exciting announcements!

We hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter…and happy travels to you all!


Featured Product - Caravan Cover

While we are all still enjoying the summer holidays and touring around in our Euro Caravan, it doesn't hurt to plan ahead for the moment you unhook your caravan from your car and it waits patiently for the next adventure.

To protect and care for your caravan during its 'down-time', we have had our caravan covers specially designed and manufactured to protect your Hobby and Glider (as well as the old Sunseeker models) from the extreme weather conditions that we face here in Australia.

They have been manufactured using a composite of two materials comprising a water resistant roof section for maximum protection, weather resistant breathable side panels which allows the cover to breathe and moisture to evaporate resisting rot and mildew.

Check out the specs on this handy extra here, and contact us if you have any questions. You can also place an order directly via our online shop!


 

How to Finance Life as a Full-Time Nomad

During your summer break, many of you have had the taste of living life as a nomad, and perhaps you would like 2019 to be the year you make your dream a reality and become a full-time nomad.

Just imagine, you are on the road, traveling around the country, exploring all your favourite destinations…and there are no responsibilities or limitations that can stop you. Sounds like heaven, doesn’t it?

However, there is one thing that can hold people back from living as a full-time nomad, and that is working out how to finance this lifestyle.

We hope our article on "How to Finance Life as a Full-Time Nomad" will help make your dream a reality!

Customer 'how-to' requests

We recently had a request for a 'how to' video to be created to demonstrate how to set up the water pump, so this week our staff shot the below short video to share with this customer, and our whole community. For those unsure of how to set up the water pump, we hope you find this video helpful:

Euro Caravans Newsletter – December 2018

December Newsletter

Hi

December is here and Christmas is just around the corner.

With many of us getting ready to hit the road for the holidays, this month we are focusing on how to make your summer holidays fun and relaxing, so our featured product this newsletter is our comfortable and easy to tow Glider 3 Berth (along with a fun video clip of the Europeans enjoying the Gliders over their summer), we answer your questions about the process required to have your ATM changed, and there is also a notice of our Office Closure to ensure you know when you can reach us.

Remember, we have lots of news and information to share with you every week, so make sure you follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out on any exciting announcements!

We hope you enjoy this month’s newsletter…and happy travels to you all!


Featured Product - Glider 3 Berth

The Euro Caravans Team are excited that the new shipment of Glider 3 Berth Trailers have arrived at our warehouse in Girraween in time for the summer!

This popular small caravan of ours is the perfect solution for those wanting to get on the road with ease without needing to tow a large, heavy caravan.

The Glider weighs just 560kgs, which makes it towable by virtually every car on the road, and with 10 overhead lockers, a wardrobe and cupboard space, you can bring all your favourite belongings from home when you hit the road this summer.

Check out the specs on this popular model here, and contact us if you have any questions or if you haven't already booked yourself an inspection of one of these great small caravans!

Ready to get in the summer camping spirit? 

Our European Team sent us this video to show Australians how they are enjoying the Euro Gliders on the other side of the world. We hope this gets you in the summer holiday spirit!

 


Can the ATM be changed on my caravan?

We have recently received some questions from our customers asking whether their Euro Caravan can have its Aggregate Trailer Mass (ATM) increased, and what the process is to have this done.

With the ATM being a critical specification, there are processes which each state and territory have put in place which must be followed in order to have the ATM of your caravan modified.

To assist in your understanding about the approval process to have an ATM increased, we hope you find our article on this topic helpful.


Holiday Closure

From 22 December to 6 January, the Euro Caravans Office will be closed for the holiday break.

We would like to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We look forward to seeing you in 2019!
