Transporting a caravan

Transporting a caravan is frequently correlated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much easier than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, do not 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 common type of caravan. This type has 4 sturdy walls as well as a full height rood. It can range in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, still generally it ensures quite comfortable travelling environment. Conventional caravans come in 1 or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a fine alternative in case you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by almost any car and often includes most of the elementary equipment, such as shower and a fridge. It provide you large amount of living space however offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this kind is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to 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 expandable section on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a perfect area to fit extra beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than most of the types described before, but thanks to having the most needed basic equipment (shower, fridge and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as budget way of travelling. 

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


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

In case you choose to find a transport provider to move your caravan, check if you give them the exact dimensions of the caravan. Also check if its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the transport provider about state of the caravan – like whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the procedures concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping companies frequently have product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during transportation.
