Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is usually associated with a lot of difficulties, but in fact it is much less complex 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.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual type of caravan. This type has 4 solid walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan might vary in length as well as in the amount of rooms, yet generally it provides pretty convenient travelling environment. Conventional caravans come in one or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good choice if you want to lower the costs. It can be towed by most of the cars and often includes most of the elementary equipment, like hot water and a fridge. Tent trailer provide you large 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, which helps to increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little 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 perfect area to fit additional beds, in case you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

E Camper trailers – they offer less living space than most of the types described before, but because of all the basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) it is a convenient and budget way of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest kind of caravan. It offers very big amount of living space, so that whole families can travel in comfort. Due to its considerable 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 transport a caravan on your own – such decision hinges on whether you have right amount of time to travel necessary route and whether the caravan itself is working.

In case you decide to hire a shipping provider to transport your caravan, make sure you have the precise measurements of the caravan. Additionally confirm that its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – like whether brakes are fully functional.

When relying on a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t need to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the regulations concern the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should any damage is done to the caravan on the road.

Cost of transporting a caravan

Cost of shipping a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is withmost types of cargo}. Other than that , the price is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is able to drive on its own, you will likely get cheaper price.
