Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often associated with a lot of difficulties, but actually it is much less difficult than it seems. If you want to transport a caravan on your own, do not forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual kind of caravan. This type has four strong walls and a full height rood. It might differ in length as well as in the amount of rooms, however in general it provides pretty convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great choice if you want to lower the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by nearly every car , moreover it usually includes most of the elementary equipment, like hot water and a fridge. Tent trailer gives you large amount of living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this kind is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, which can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan has all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable area on the ends of the van, which creates a convienient spot to place additional beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than most of the types described before, but because they provide with all the basic equipment (shower, fridge and so on) it is a comfortable as well as affordable way of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It offers considerable amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel pleasantly. Because of its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (such as a pickup truck).

Sometimes it is impossible to transport a caravan by yourself – such decision hinges on whether you have enough time to cover required distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of travelling such distance.

If you decide to find a shipping provider to ship your caravan, verify if you give them the precise dimensions of the caravan. Additionally make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. Futhermore, warn the transport provider about state of the caravan – for example whether brakes are fully functional.

When relying on a transport provider to transport your caravan you do not need to worry about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the rules concern the transport provider. Moreover, transport providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during shipment.

Cost of transporting a caravan

Cost of transporting a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is withmost types of cargo}. Other than that , the cost is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is fully functional, you will likely pay less.
