Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is frequently associated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much less complex than it seems. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, remember to make sure that your driving license enables you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual type of caravan. This type has four sturdy walls and a full height rood. It might differ in dimensions as well as in the amount of rooms, but in general it provides pretty comfortable travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have one or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a great alternative if you need to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by nearly every car and usually contains the most basic equipment, such as hot water and a fridge. It provide you considerable living space but 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, similar to a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as added expandable area on the foot and the head of the van, which is a convienient spot to fit additional beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among large families.

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

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest kind of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel pleasantly. Because of its large size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (e. g. a pickup truck).

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

If you decide to find a shipping provider to move your caravan, check if you have the exact measurements of the caravan. Additionally make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, warn 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 do not need to worry about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the rules concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan during shipment.

Price of transporting a caravan

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