Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is frequently correlated with great deal of difficulties, but actually it is much easier than it seems. If you plan on shipping a caravan by yourself, do not forget to make sure that your driving license allows you to do that.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular kind of caravan. It has four sturdy walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan can vary in dimensions and in the number of rooms, but generally it provides pretty convenient travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a fine choice if you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by almost any car and usually includes the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. It provide you considerable amount of living space but offers very little wind resistance.

3) Pop-top caravans -  they are similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan has all the advantages of a pop-top caravan and added pop-out area on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a perfect spot to place additional beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most favored by big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types mentioned before, but because of the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) it is a comfortable as well as affordable way 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 pleasantly. Because of 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 by yourself – such decision depends on whether you have enough time to drive necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of travelling such distance.

If you want to find a shipping company to move your caravan, double-check if you know the specific measurements of the caravan. Moreover make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the transport provider about condition of the caravan – like whether lights are fully functional.

When hiring a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t have to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the regulations concern the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan during transportation.

Cost of shipping a caravan

Cost of moving a caravan hinges on its dimensions and weight (similar to almost every type of cargo}. Additionally, the price is also defined by the state of the caravan – if it is able to drive on its own, you are likely to get cheaper price.
