Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is usually correlated with great deal of difficulties, but actually it is much less complex than we realize. If you want to ship a caravan on your own, don’t forget to check if your driving license allows you to do that.

Types of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual kind of caravan. This type has 4 solid walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan can differ in dimensions and in the number of rooms, still in general it provides pretty satisfying travelling environment. Conventional caravans come in 1 or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good choice in case you might want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer can be towed by most of the cars and often includes most of the elementary equipment, like hot water and a fridge. It provide you considerable living space but offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this kind is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, which helps to increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable section on the ends of the vehicle, which is a convienient area to fit extra beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among large families.

E Camper trailers – they offer less living space than most of the types mentioned before, but because they provide with the most needed elementary equipment (shower, fridge and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient and affordable manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest kind of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel comfortably. Because of its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (such as a pickup truck).


It is not always possible to ship a caravan on your own – it depends on whether you have enough time to drive necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is functional.

In case you decide to find a shipping provider to ship your caravan, confirm you know the exact dimensions of the caravan. Additionally check if its insurance hasn’t expired. In addition, instruct the transport provider about condition of the caravan – for example whether lights are fully functional.

When hiring a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during shipment.

Price of transporting a caravan

Price of shipping a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (similar tomost types of cargo}. Additionally, the price is also affected by the state of the vehicle – if it is fully functional, you are likely to pay less.
