Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often correlated with a lot of difficulties, but in fact it is much easier than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan by yourself, remember to make sure that your driving license allows you to do that.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most common type of caravan. This type has four solid walls and a full height rood. Mentioned type might differ in length as well as in the amount of rooms, however in most cases it ensures quite convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good alternative if you need to lower the costs. It may be towed by almost any car , moreover it usually contains the most basic equipment, like hot water and a fridge. Tent trailer gives you large amount of living space however offers very little wind resistance.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this type is similar to conventional caravans with the exception of a lifting 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 advantages of a pop-top caravan and extra pop-out area on the ends of the vehicle, which creates a convienient area to place additional beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among large families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types mentioned above, but thanks to having all the basic equipment (shower, fridge and so on) it is a convenient and budget way of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, so that whole families can travel pleasantly. Due to its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (for example a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan by yourself – it depends on whether you have right amount of time to cover needed route and whether the caravan itself is capable of travelling such distance.

If you want to find a transport provider to transport your caravan, confirm you know the precise measurements of the caravan. Also check if its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, instruct the transport provider about state of the caravan – for example whether brakes are fully functional.

When hiring a transport provider to move your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the procedures apply to the transport provider. Moreover, shipping providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, should any damage is done to the caravan during transportation.

Price of transporting a caravan

Price of moving a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is withmost types of cargo}. Other than that , the cost is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is able to drive on its own, you will likely get cheaper price.
