Offroad Caravans for Sale

A Caravan for Rough Terrain

South Africa is a country of plentiful natural beauty and camping is a popular way to enjoy the great outdoors. Some people prefer to sleep in a tent, while others like to hook up a caravan to the bakkie or SUV and in so doing bring along some creature comforts. Consequently, caravanning is so popular in South Africa that most campsites have caravan parks as well. Unfortunately, many of the best campsites require travelling over gravel roads and off-road terrain to get to.

If you drive a bakkie or an SUV, the gravel roads are not a challenge, but when a caravan is in tow, you must adapt your driving style accordingly. If the road is unkempt, this could mean slowing down to a crawl and greatly extending your travel time. It can also cause damage to the short-travel suspension and fragile structure of your caravan. Luckily, Kennis Caravans & Motorhomes offers a solution. We have off-road caravans for sale at affordable prices. These caravans are built to withstand the beating that a caravan has to endure when travelling on gravel roads.

The Benefits of An Off-Road Caravan

Caravans are designed to be a home away from home, fitted out with basic appliances and amenities for you to enjoy your camping experience. These basics include a bed, ablution facilities, and a kitchenette for food preparation. The problem with hauling all these things along is the weight it adds to the caravan and the vehicle towing it. This is not much of a problem if you’re dealing with a smooth, level road, but can bring an off-road excursion to a grinding halt upon encountering the first ridge or gully.

Our selection of used off-road caravans is designed to handle the weight and unevenness of a gravel road – and worse. These caravans feature heavy-duty, reinforced axles to accommodate the weight from above and the unpredictable surface changes from below. The chassis is raised as well, making room for chunky off-road tyres and wheels to be fitted. The models that we have for sale are offered at fair prices and can make a big difference to your next camping trip. Not only do they allow for safer off-road travel, but because they are so tough and durable, they will last, even when the going gets tough.

Bakkies, crossovers, and SUVs are extremely commonplace on South African roads; people buy these vehicles because of their ability to handle off-road terrain. Now, you can get a caravan that can do the same. Therefore, you can tackle those nasty gravel roads with the peace of mind that your caravan can handle them. These high-riding caravans cause a little more drag at high speed on tarmac, but their reinforced axles and chassis, along with their off-road tyres and wheels, make them an ideal option if you are browsing our selection of used models for sale and need one that can go off the beaten track.

Kennis Caravans & Motorhomes offers all that you need to make the most of your next camping trip. For more information on our pre-owned off-road caravans, please peruse our website for specifications and prices.
