FORGET interest rates, buy a caravan and you will have in tow a luxury home, minus the mortgage.

Cruise Oz in Loganholme has sold thousands of caravans to happy campers since 1993.

“We’re a family owned business who believe in old fashion customer service and family values,” co-owner Roslyn Vanbaardwyk said. 

“As Australia’s oldest Avan dealer we have a wealth of knowledge to help you with the important decision of what van best suits you.”

Cruise Oz started at Bethania in Brisbane and expanded to a bigger yard at Miami on the Gold Coast.

“We outgrew Miami, and moved to a larger, better site at Loganholme,” Mrs Vanbaardwyk said. Cruise Oz is an accredited repairer for Avan, Golf and Knaus.

This advertising feature is sponsored by the following business: 

“Our technicians are experienced and continually trained in all aspects of the Avan, Golf and Knaus products,” Mrs Vanbaardwyk said.

“Whether it’s an additional 12V Battery, a Pole tube or a 12V TV, we can take care of your needs.

“Our goal is to provide you with the best customer service possible.

“Our team can help you with fitting accessories.”

Cruise Oz also sells caravans online and have nearly 100 new and used models from which to choose.

Cruise Oz has extended as a caravan dealership over the years and now employs several staff. 

They advise potential travellers on all their needs for a camping holiday, both long and short-term.

“Think accessibility to spare parts when you start out on a tour,” Mrs Vanbaardwyk said.

More expensive caravans often include slide-out kitchen, draw fridge, battery pack, external shower and gas-electric hot water service.

Caravans have an edge over motorhomes when travelling; they can be separated from your vehicle, are usually smaller and lighter than a motorhome and generally less expensive.

“But it really depends on personal taste; the market is pretty evenly split at the moment between those who want a motorhome and those who are loyal to caravans,” Mrs Vanbaardwyk said.
