colours colours colours!
So you've ordered your new van and it's time to pick the colour scheme... Here's a couple of tips to help you get your van looking great. - It's your home away from home after all!
Ordering a new van is super exciting, no doubt about it! Getting the layout right, adding whatever specs needed so your van suits your needs... It's no wonder that colours and decor options are often one of the last considerations taken into account when people are purchasing their dream Caravan! We've compiled a handy guide of what to think about when it comes time to selecting decor for your upcoming van:
1. Consider the size of your van.
Like a room in your home, consider the size of the van you're getting when it comes to decor and colour selections. As a rule of thumb - The larger the van, the more you can get away with darker colour schemes as you'll generally have more lighting (and or) more/larger windows. In a smaller van it's best to pair darker colours with lighter accents (Think Dark Cupboard Doors, Light Benchtops and Neutral Seating and Flooring) or stick to a generally lighter colour scheme to give the feeling of openness.
2. Consider where you use bold colours.
Bold colours are great - If used correctly! There's a couple of things to consider when using bold colours in a van, particularly internally. Sure, selling your van later on down the line isn't at the forefront of your mind when you're ordering your new Caravan - But it is worth keeping in the back of your mind if opting for a particularly bold or daring colour scheme. You may love, orange, for example. In 5/10/however many years down line though if you choose to sell or upgrade, perspective buyers may not love it quite as much. Remember: You have plenty of options of adding colour to your van - Bedspreads, Towels, Scatter Cushions etc can all add a pop of colour to your van and are easy to change as your personal style and what's 'on trend' changes.

When it comes to Anti theft devices for your van there's a number of options on the market.
If you're yet to hear of the Saracen Ultra Hitch Lock by Purpleline though, we reckon they're definitely worth a look!
The Ultra model has one stand out feature you won't find in other coupling locks - The ability to fit when the van is both unhitched AND hitched to your towing vehicle. It also lock the trailer chains to provide maximum security when locking the hitch uncoupled.
Made from specially hardened high strength steel which is resistant to cutting and drilling, it incorporates a high-security, 7-pin barrel lock, resistant to picking, drilling and gas freezing.
When it comes to coupling locks, these are hard to beat!

5 places to see in victoria!
Well, we reckon they're worth the visit for sure!
Here's our top 5 getaway spots in Victoria... (In no particular order).
This ones a personal favourite - Gateway to the Southern Grampians, Dunkeld is one of those places that are totally picturesque. A hike up Mount Sturgeon, Mount Abrupt and/or the Piccaninny will reward you with stunning panoramic views - highly recommended!
The Dunkeld Caravan Park is an absolute MUST STAY - The atmosphere and vibe of the park is like nowhere else. Great hosts, great spot; You can't go wrong.

2. Wilsons Promontory.
Packing up my Oma and Opas 1970's Franklin Caravan and heading for a trip to Wilsons Promontory will always be amongst my favourite childhood memories, I can't recommend this place enough. Pristine beaches, Friendly wildlife and awesome walking / hiking tracks are just some of the things to do and see when visiting Wilsons Prom. Be sure to check out Squeaky Beach and Fairy Cove - both are stunning!
For more info and details about what to do and see at Wilsons Prom, click here: https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/places-to-see/parks/wilsons-promontory-national-park
Family friendly Warrnambool has plenty to see and explore - Have a hit of golf at the prestigious Warrnambool Golf Club, grab a surfboard and hit some waves and of course, experience the Great Ocean Road. We definitely recommend checking out the Fletcher Jones Market, but if markets aren't your thing there's really no shortage of things to experience staying here.

Victorias Fishing Capital! With a population of less than 1000 - Go and discover for yourself just why that number hits closer to 10,000 during holiday periods... It's hard not to fall in love with this pretty coastal town. Considering it boasts Victorias warmest Winter temperatures, there's never really a bad time to head to Mallacoota in Gippsland.
More info here: https://www.visitmelbourne.com/regions/gippsland/destinations/mallacoota
Ballarat has something for everyone - A stunning spot with a rich heritage, it really is one of those spots you just have to see if you're in Victoria. A definite must-visit if you're there is Sovereign Hill, a recreated gold township of the 1850's where you can explore and experience life during that era. Kryal Castle is another cool spot to check out with the kids - But honestly as we said, there's something for everyone in Ballarat.
