Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is usually associated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much easier than we realize. If you want to ship a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to check if your driving license allows you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual kind of caravan. It has 4 solid walls and a full height rood. It can vary in length and in the number of rooms, but in most cases it ensures quite comfortable travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a good choice if you need to decrease the costs. It can be towed by almost any car , moreover it usually contains the most basic equipment, like hot water or a fridge. It provide you considerable amount of living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, which helps expanding the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan has all the features of a pop-top caravan and extra expandable area on the ends of the van, which creates a perfect spot to place additional beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as the types mentioned before, but thanks to having all the elementary equipment (shower, fridge and so on) it is a comfortable as well as economical manner of travelling. 

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


It is not always possible to transport a caravan by yourself – it depends on whether you have right amount of time to drive necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you choose to hire a transport company to move your caravan, check if you give them the specific measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. Futhermore, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – like whether brakes work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not need to worry about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements concern the transport provider. Furthermore, transport companies frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during shipment.
