Whether you're looking for a caravan with more space, or in need of a change of decor or more modern features, part exchanging may well be the right path to take with your holiday home. At Haven we offer a comprehensive service, so you’ll be supported every step of the way. Like buying a static caravan outright with us, we’ll be alongside you every step of the way. Here’s how it works: 

1. Choose your ideal holiday home 

At Haven we offer a wide range of caravans and lodges to suit all tastes and budgets, made by some of the top manufacturers in the UK. You may wish to stay on your existing pitch or move to another of our 39 wonderful holiday parks dotted across the UK coast. You just need to speak to a member of our friendly sales team to find out which pitches are available. 

2. Agree the cost 

Having found your ideal new holiday home, we can then appraise your old caravan and compare the values of the two. You may also be able to use credit from letting your previous caravan to contribute to your down payment. 

3. Pay in the manner that suits you 

You could pay for your holiday home in full or take our Haven caravan finance that offers a highly competitive 5.71% fixed / 10.6% APR (representative) monthly repayment rate. If you already have finance in place, we can settle the existing loan and offer a new agreement. 

4. Leave the paperwork up to us 

We’ll settle the finance, move your holiday home and handle everything in between. This whole process should take no more than a few weeks. You’ll have access to your holiday home as soon as it arrives on park. We’ll also organise the sale of your old caravan; it will either be sold on park or to another park at home or abroad! 

Why use a caravan part exchange?

Why use a caravan part exchange?

As an owner you’ll be able to part exchange your caravan whenever you like. There are a number of reasons that people choose to opt for part exchange. 

Some owners simply want to upgrade their caravan at the same park. This may be to make space for new family members, or to get a more favourable position on site that allows for uninterrupted sea views. Others might be looking to move to a new location altogether. One of the most exciting things about the idea of owning a holiday home is choosing the caravan park that suits you. 

Many factors can influence this decision such as the availability of activities for families or how close local attractions are. Different parks have their own unique appeal that can be as vital to your overall experience of caravan owner life as the holiday home itself. Peoples’ needs change over time, so it’s only logical that their site preferences will change too.
