There’s a Boom: Is it Time to give yourselves staycation options
With many of us staying local for a holiday, the staycation boom this summer has been nothing short of remarkable. Even with the recent pandemic lock-downs, people have still found time to get to the beach, head into the country and enjoy some quality time. Its no surprise we’re all searching for staycation options.
Dealers have experienced increased interest and a rise in mobile caravan sales as we look for safer options to go on holiday. That boom could also see a significant rise in static caravans for sale as well as holiday lodges as people invest in a holiday home they have complete control over.
In a post-pandemic world, we’re certainly likely to see a bigger focus on home-based holidays and for some time to come. Of course, people have been doing just that for years. The UK has some great holiday locations and static caravan parks and holiday lodges from Cornwall to Stirlingshire are rarely empty.
Mobile Caravan vs Static Caravan for Sale
If you’re deciding to invest in a caravan, there are a few things to consider. Both mobile caravans and static ones or holiday lodges all offer excellent staycation options
A mobile caravan, for instance, means you can go absolutely anywhere. All you need is to pack up and head to the beach or the mountains. The downside is they are not always the most comfortable and roomy places to spend a couple of weeks.
A lot of ingenuity goes into designing mobile caravans and picking the right one is essential. Another downside is that a caravan like this tends to lose value over time and buying second hand can be difficult.
Static caravans are much roomier and more of a home from home. They often have several rooms and plenty of space to relax, cook and sit out in the early evening sun. They also keep their value well and can be a great investment for the future, just like an ordinary home.
Particularly with the boom in people staycationing, they also offer the unique potential to rent out to others, including friends and family.
The downside of buying a static caravan for sale, of course, is that it stays in one place. That means choosing not just the right property for your holiday use but finding a location that you want to visit again and again.
Static caravan camps often get stereotyped as places with lots of retirees. There are a few owners in their later years, of course, there are. But there are also younger families and groups of friends who are holidaying on sites and you get an amazing atmosphere and some brilliant facilities.
The Benefits of Caravans in a Post-Covid World
The great thing about mobile and static caravans for sale is that they allow you to control your environment. You’re carrying your home with you or have one in a nice part of the UK that is entirely yours. You can easily make sure it is Covid safe, for example, if you have a family member is vulnerable.

Holidaying at Home
When we book a holiday, we generally look abroad without realising what great locations there are to visit around the UK. Setting up a holiday lodge or static caravan in a place like Cornwall, for example, gives you access to a whole range of different activities, interesting places to visiting, brilliant beaches and thousands of bars, restaurants and cafes. In this unprecedented times it’s all about giving yourself the best staycation options allowing you to enjoy some important time away from it all.
You don’t have to worry about booking or whether your room is going to be comfortable and secure. Use at the height of summer, during the autumn or even for a Christmas ‘staycation’ celebration.
