Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is often correlated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much easier than it seems. If you plan on transporting a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to make sure that your driving license allows you to do that.

Types of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual type of caravan. It has 4 sturdy walls as well as a full height rood. It can differ in length as well as in the amount of rooms, still in most cases it ensures pretty comfortable travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have one or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a good choice in case you need to decrease the costs. It may be towed by nearly every car and often contains the most basic equipment, like shower and a fridge. It provide you considerable amount of living space but offers very little wind resistance.

3) Pop-top caravans -  they are similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan has all the advantages of a pop-top caravan and additional expandable section on the ends of the vehicle, which is a convienient area to place additional beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than the types described before, but because of all the elementary equipment (shower, fridge and so on) it is a convenient as well as economical way of travelling. 

6) The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, so that whole families can travel in comfort. Due to its large size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (for example a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – it hinges on whether you have enough time to cover required distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you want to find a transport company to move your caravan, verify if you have the precise measurements of the caravan. Moreover make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. Moreover, instruct the transport provider about state of the caravan – for example whether brakes work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to ship your caravan you don’t have to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements concern the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping providers often invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during shipment.

Cost of transporting a caravan

Cost of shipping a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of cargo}. Other than that , the cost is also affected by the state of the vehicle – if it is fully functional, you are likely to pay less.
