Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently associated with a lot of problems, but actually it is much less difficult than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, don’t forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual type of caravan. It has 4 strong walls as well as a full height rood. It might range in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, still in most cases it guarantees pretty pleasant travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great choice in case you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by most of the cars and often includes the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. Tent trailer gives you considerable living space however offers very little wind resistance.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this kind is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan has all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as extra expandable area on the ends of the vehicle, which is a perfect area to place additional beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among big families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types mentioned above, but because of the most needed basic equipment (shower, fridge and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable as well as budget way of travelling. 

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


It is not always possible to ship a caravan on your own – such decision depends on whether you have right amount of time to drive needed distance and whether the caravan itself is working.

If you decide to hire a shipping company to ship your caravan, verify if you give them the precise dimensions of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, warn the transport provider about condition of the caravan – for example 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. Furthermore, shipping providers often have product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan on the road.

Price of shipping a caravan

Cost of transporting a caravan hinges on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of loads}. Other than that , the cost is also defined by the state of the vehicle – if it is fully functional, you will likely get cheaper price.
