Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often associated with great deal of difficulties, but in fact it is much less difficult than it seems. If you plan on transporting a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to check if your driving license allows you to do it.

Types of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular type of caravan. This type has 4 sturdy walls and a full height rood. It might range in length as well as in the number of rooms, still in most cases it guarantees pretty satisfying travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a good choice in case you want to lower the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by nearly every car and usually contains most of the elementary equipment, like hot water or a fridge. It gives you large living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this kind is very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a expendable roof, that helps expanding the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable section on the ends of the van, which creates a perfect spot to place additional beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

5) 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 economical manner of travelling. 

6) The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel in comfort. Due to its large size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (such as a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – such decision hinges on whether you have right amount of time to cover necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is functional.

Furthermore, transport companies often invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during shipment.
