Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is frequently correlated with great deal of difficulties, but actually it is much less difficult than it seems. If you want to ship a caravan on your own, remember to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Types of caravans

A 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. Mentioned type can differ in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, but in most cases it guarantees pretty comfortable travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

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

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than the types described above, but because they provide with all the basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) it is 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, so that whole families can travel pleasantly. Due to its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (e. g. a pickup truck).


It is not always possible to ship 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.
