Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often associated with a lot of problems, but in fact it is much less complex than we realize. If you plan on shipping a caravan on your own, do not forget to make sure that your driving license allows you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual kind of caravan. It has four sturdy walls and a full height rood. A conventional caravan can differ in dimensions as well as in the amount of rooms, yet in most cases it provides quite pleasant travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have one or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great alternative in case you might want to lower the costs. It may be towed by most of the cars , moreover it usually includes the most basic equipment, like shower or a fridge. It provide you large amount of living space but offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this kind is very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a expendable roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as added expandable section on the foot and the head of the vehicle, which is a perfect spot to fit additional beds, in case you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among big families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as the types described before, but because of the most needed 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 largest type of caravan. It offers considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel in comfort. 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 on your own – such decision hinges on whether you have enough time to cover necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is functional.

If you decide to find a shipping company to transport your caravan, check if you have the precise measurements of the caravan. Additionally make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, warn the hauler about state of the caravan – for example whether brakes work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to move your caravan you do not need to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the requirements apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, transport providers often invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan on the road.
