Key caravan-friendly facilities that are a must for any village
One of the first and foremost considerations for you, as an avowed caravan fanatic, is retirement or lifestyle living that offers a place for your van preferably under cover. The newer villages in particular have RV accommodation beside each living space which is a huge bonus in keeping your precious van or motorhome undercover and out of the weather. Let’s face it you have a large investment in your van or motorhome and it’s good to know it is well protected and nearby. In addition, facilities that serve to make your retirement living so much more comfortable are worth considering in the mix. Things like a pool, bowling alley or lawn bowls, theatre, gymnasium with visiting fitness instructors, visiting therapists, regular outings or social gatherings all serve to enhance your retirement experience.
Why retirees want to downsize but still keep their caravan
As we age the tiresome repetitiveness of housework for our 3 bedroom or larger homes becomes a bit overwhelming and at times physically taxing too. Additionally, the need to maintain our yards or gardens becomes a burden particularly if we want to travel for extended periods of time. Downsizing is a sensible alternative to retirement living, setting you free to enjoy those things that you have always wanted to do. It also allows you to start ticking off your bucket list. If that includes hitching up your van and setting off throughout our beautiful land all the better to have a well-located home base.
