Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is usually correlated with a lot of difficulties, but actually it is much less complex than it seems. If you want to transport a caravan on your own, remember to make sure that your driving license enables you to do it.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular type of caravan. It has four strong walls and a full height rood. It can range in length and in the number of rooms, still generally it provides pretty convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in 1 or two axles.

5) Camper trailers – they offer not as much living space as the types mentioned above, but because they provide with all the basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable and economical way of travelling. 

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


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

If you decide to hire a shipping provider to move your caravan, make sure you give them the specific dimensions of the caravan. Also confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, inform the hauler about state of the caravan – like whether brakes are fully functional.
