Transporting a caravan

Transporting a caravan is usually associated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much less difficult than it seems. If you want to transport a caravan by yourself, do not forget to check if your driving license allows you to do it.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most common type of caravan. It has four solid walls as well as a full height rood. It might differ in dimensions as well as in the number of rooms, yet in most cases it ensures quite pleasant travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in one or two axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a fine choice in case you need to decrease the costs. It can be towed by nearly every car and often contains the most basic equipment, like hot water or a fridge. It gives you considerable living space but offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is similar to conventional caravans with the exception of a expendable roof, that helps expanding the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as extra pop-out area on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a convienient area to place additional beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

5) Camper trailers – they offer less living space than the types described before, but because of all the basic equipment (shower, fridge and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable and budget manner of travelling. 

6) The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It offers very big amount of living space, so that whole families can travel pleasantly. Due to its large size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (e. g. a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to transport a caravan by yourself – such decision depends on whether you have enough time to cover required route and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you decide to hire a transport company to transport your caravan, check if you have the exact measurements of the caravan. Moreover make sure that its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, warn the hauler about state of the caravan – e.g. whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not have to think about your driving license or speed limits  - all the procedures apply to the transport provider. Moreover, transport companies frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during shipment.

Price of moving a caravan

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