Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently correlated with great deal of problems, but actually it is much less difficult than it seems. If you want to ship a caravan on your own, do not forget to check if your driving license enables you to do that.

Types of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most popular kind of caravan. This type has 4 strong walls as well as a full height rood. It might vary in dimensions and in the number of rooms, still generally it provides pretty pleasant travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have one or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a fine alternative if you want to decrease the costs. It may be towed by almost any car , moreover it often includes the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. It gives you considerable amount of living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, that can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

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

E Camper trailers – they offer less living space than the types described above, but because they provide with the most needed basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as affordable manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest kind 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 (e. g. a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – it depends on whether you have right amount of time to drive required route and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you choose to find a transport provider to ship your caravan, confirm you have the specific measurements of the caravan. Also confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, instruct the transport provider about condition of the caravan – for example whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t have to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the requirements apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan during transportation.

Price of shipping a caravan

Cost of transporting a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (similar to almost every type of cargo}. Other than that , the price is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is undamaged, you will likely get cheaper price.
