Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often associated with a lot of problems, but actually it is much less complex than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, remember to check if your driving license enables you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular kind of caravan. This type has 4 solid walls and a full height rood. Mentioned type might differ in dimensions and in the number of rooms, yet in general it ensures pretty convenient travelling environment. Conventional caravans come in 1 or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good alternative if you need to decrease the costs. It can be towed by nearly every car and often includes the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. It provide you considerable amount of living space however offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this type is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, that can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan has all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as added pop-out section on the ends of the vehicle, which is a perfect area to fit extra beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types mentioned before, but because they provide with the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable and affordable manner of travelling. 

6) The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest kind of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel in comfort. Because of its large size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (for example a pickup truck).

It is not always possible to transport a caravan by yourself – it hinges on whether you have right amount of time to drive necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

If you choose to find a shipping provider to transport your caravan, verify if you have the specific measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. In addition, inform the transport provider about condition of the caravan – for example whether lights 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 rules apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan on the road.
