Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is usually correlated with great deal of difficulties, but in fact it is much less difficult than we realize. If you plan on shipping a caravan on your own, remember to check if your driving license allows you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular type of caravan. This type has four solid walls and a full height rood. Mentioned type might range in dimensions and in the number of rooms, yet in most cases it provides pretty comfortable travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a fine choice if you need to decrease the costs. It may be towed by nearly every car and often includes the most basic equipment, like hot water or a fridge. It gives you large living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  they are very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a lifting roof, that can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable section on the foot and the head of the van, which is a perfect area to place extra beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

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

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel pleasantly. Due to its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (for example a pickup truck).


It is not always possible to ship a caravan on your own – it hinges on whether you have right amount of time to cover necessary route and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you choose to hire a shipping provider to ship your caravan, make sure you have the precise dimensions of the caravan. Moreover check if its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – e.g. whether lights are fully functional.

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