Taking a road trip across countries and states is a once in a lifetime experience that will open your eyes to so much of the world.
Taking this journey in your own campervan will make the experience even better. Campervans give you the freedom to go wherever you like. There’s no need to worry about booking a hotel for the night, and you can change your plans as you go. If you want to break off from your planned route and explore, you can do.
Because all of your possessions are in the back of the van, there’s no need to worry about dragging bags and suitcases around.
But for all of the freedom and convenience that campervans offer, and despite being able to save on your hotel and other transport costs on your holiday; campervans are expensive. If you don’t already own one, it may be a challenge to afford one.
Here’s how you can pay for your dream campervan.
Sell Items To Raise Funds
This may take some considerable effort; however, you might want to sell some of your unused or unwanted possessions to fund your campervan.
Have a clearout in your home and find items that you can list on selling sites such as eBay. Look for high demand items which will be popular. Of course, in many cases, you’ll not get what you paid for an item.
Get Your Campervan On Finance
If you are buying a new or used campervan from a dealer, then you may be able to take out finance to pay for it. This will be subject to a credit check, and you will need to make sure that you can afford to make the monthly repayments. Typically, a finance agreement will over a number of years.
There are several different types of the finance agreement. Some options will mean that your campervan is never owned by you; it is instead leased throughout the terms of the agreement.
If you’re taking out a finance agreement, make sure that you understand how the agreement works and whether you own the vehicle fully at the end of it.
Take Out A Loan
If you are not buying your campervan from a dealer, and you are instead buying from a private seller, you won’t have finance as an option.
Instead, you could look at taking out a loan through a company such as Buddy Loans.
Again, you will need to make sure that you can afford to make the repayments each month and are able to commit to the full term of the loan.
Rent Your Campervan
If you can’t raise the money to buy your own campervan, there is another option open to you. You could rent your campervan.
There are numerous campervan rental companies available who will be able to rent out a campervan to you.
This will obviously only be for a short period of time, and there may be some restrictions on where you can drive it.
