Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often correlated with great deal of difficulties, but in fact it is much easier than we realize. If you want to ship a caravan on your own, do not forget to make sure that your driving license allows you to do it.

Types of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most common kind of caravan. This type has four strong walls as well as a full height rood. Mentioned type can range in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, still in most cases it ensures pretty pleasant travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have one or two axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a great choice in case you want to lower the costs. It may be towed by nearly every car and often includes the most basic equipment, like hot water or a fridge. Tent trailer provide you considerable amount of living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  they are similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, that helps to increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as extra pop-out area on the foot and the head of the vehicle, which is a perfect area to fit extra beds, in case you need them. Pop-out caravans are the most favored by large families.

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than most of the types mentioned before, but thanks to having the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) it is a convenient as well as economical way of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest kind of caravan. It offers 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 (such as a pickup truck).


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

If you want to hire a transport provider to ship your caravan, make sure you have the specific measurements of the caravan. Additionally confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. Futhermore, instruct the hauler about condition of the caravan – like whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to move your caravan you don’t need to think about your driving license or speed limits  - all the regulations concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping providers often invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should any damage is done to the caravan on the road.

Price of moving a caravan

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