Wayne is continually hunting a bargain on various buy swap sell sites. It ranges from caravans, to vehicles to tools. Frustrating if you ask me, but there is times where I just let him go. Here is the story on how we ended up with Our First Caravan.
When it came to buying our caravan, I was always hesitant however the day he asked me to have a look at this caravan on Geraldton Buy Swap and Sell and to tell my why it was needed, I thought why not. The asking price was reasonable and was in alright condition. It needed some TLC and a bit of love but we knew that was achievable.
With that in mind, we handed over our $3000 cash and purchased ourselves a little 1991 Millard Caravan. The van has the standard double bed, oven/stove top, television, fridge and solar panels. It has plenty of storage and we have converted a wardrobe into a shelving unit to provide us more storage.
So far we have approximately spent $1000 on the van which includes new batteries, new tyres & bearings, linen and appliances. Our Caravan also comes with a full size annexe and we have purchased a pull out awning for the rear door to provide shade and protection from weather.
Our Caravan is small and we get a few comments about it, but the size is perfect for us. We are very happy with the little bargain we got and its paid its worth for when we travelled from Western Australia back to Victoria in 2016.
