Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently associated with a lot of problems, but in fact it is much easier than we realize. If you plan on shipping a caravan by yourself, remember to make sure that your driving license allows you to do that.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular kind of caravan. This type has four strong walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan can range in length and in the number of rooms, yet generally it ensures quite comfortable travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in one or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good choice if you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by nearly every car and usually contains the most basic equipment, such as hot water or a fridge. Tent trailer gives you large living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, that can increase 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 has all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable section on the ends of the van, which creates a convienient spot to place additional beds, in case you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types mentioned before, but because they provide with all the basic equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as economical manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest type of caravan. It provides with very big amount of living space, which allows whole families to travel in comfort. Because of its considerable size,  the fifth-wheeler requires a larger vehicle to tow it (like a pickup truck).

Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – it depends on whether you have enough time to drive required route and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

If you decide to find a shipping provider to move your caravan, confirm you know the precise dimensions of the caravan. Also make sure that its insurance hasn’t expired. Futhermore, instruct the transport provider about state of the caravan – e.g. whether lights are fully functional.

When hiring a transport provider to transport your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements apply to the transport provider. Moreover, shipping companies frequently invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan on the road.

Cost of moving a caravan

Price of transporting a caravan hinges 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 able to drive on its own, you will likely get cheaper price.
