Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often associated with a lot of problems, but actually it is much less complex than we realize. If you want to transport a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to make sure that your driving license allows you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual kind of caravan. This type has four sturdy walls as well as a full height rood. Mentioned type can vary in length and in the amount of rooms, but in general it guarantees pretty comfortable travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good choice if you might want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer can be towed by almost any car and often contains the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. Tent trailer gives you large amount of living space however offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  they are very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a expendable roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan and additional expandable area on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a perfect area to fit extra beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most favored by big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than the types mentioned before, but thanks to having the most needed elementary equipment (shower, fridge and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable as well as budget way of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest kind of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel comfortably. Due to its large size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (such as a pickup truck).

Sometimes it is impossible to transport a caravan by yourself – such decision hinges 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 company to transport your caravan, double-check if you have the precise dimensions of the caravan. Also check if its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, inform the hauler about condition of the caravan – like whether lights work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the rules apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies frequently invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan during transportation.

Cost of moving a caravan

Price of shipping a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of cargo}. Additionally, the cost is also defined by the state of the vehicle – if it is undamaged, you are likely to get cheaper price.
