My wife and I are about to buy our first caravan - probably a new Swift Charisma 2005. Different people have said different things as regards the sort of discount we should expect to achieve on a new caravan without a part exchange. Is there a good rule of thumb?

Yes go to Earls Court you will be amazed at the discount you can achieve there - play one dealer off against the other haggle and you will literaly save thousands.

Ask & ye shall seek! Use a dealer near to home as it's a pain having to take a 'van miles for any warranty work. Most dealers will give you 10% for starters, then ask them to throw in extras like mains leads, water & waste carriers, spare wheels, battery, Alko stabiliser wheel clamp, towing mirrors, gas bottles. We've just bought a new 'van and got most of the above +

When we bought our first 'van 2 yrs ago - nearly all the dealers we spoke to would knock 10 ~ 15% off the list price - anything to match the Bailey we wanted (and bought). Try for at least 10%......

We secured a deal on the Charima 590 at the Lawns, a Barrons special 'Lifestyle' to be exact, I am a bit shy saying what the deal is cause of course we aint completed because the vans dont exisit yet, if you push me may say privately!

If more people would come forward over the discounts they have achieved, surely it would be more power to the buyer and a little less to the dealer!



Okay, I got
