Choosing a Caravan

Choosing a Jurgens is a smart choice. We engineer our caravans to build strength in where it is critical and take weight out where it is not needed.

The benefits are many:

A LIGHTER CARAVAN IS SAFER TO TOW

Lighter weight means shorter braking distances in an emergency stop situation. It also means the van is less likely to “push the car around” in a loss of control situation.

A LIGHTER CARAVAN GIVES YOU MORE CHOICE OF TOW VEHICLE

Choosing a lighter caravan may mean you can make big savings on a smaller tow vehicle.

A LIGHTER CARAVAN PUTS LESS STRESS ON YOUR TOW VEHICLE

Why make the tow vehicle work harder than it needs to. A lighter load means your engine won’t need to rev as hard and there will be less strain on your transmission.

A LIGHTER CARAVAN IS MORE FUEL EFFICIENT

Every time you hit that accelerator you are burning fuel. A lighter van will burn less fuel helping the environment and your hip pocket.

Now it's just a matter of choosing which Jurgens!

Choosing a caravan is a very exciting time but we also know it can be a big decision.

For those who are new to caravanning we have put together some simple information to help you make the right decision.

Have a think about how you will use your van. Make some notes on the following and this will help you decide on the right van for you.

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

Where

Will you be sticking to the bitumen or venturing off for some bush camping.
Will you stick to the caravan parks or try some “free” caravanning.

How often

Will you use the van for the occasional weekend away or do you have plans for more extended journeys? If you are spending more time living in the van, more space and greater creature comforts may become more important.

Are you looking at a single traveller, a couple or a family? There are configurations designed to accommodate all groups of people.

Tow vehicle

The rating of your vehicle to tow a certain weight is an important part in the selection process. Fortunately Jurgens vans are designed to be light yet strong and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with what you can tow. Click through here to find the towing capacity of many popular vehicles.
