Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often correlated with great deal of difficulties, but actually it is much easier than it seems. If you want to ship a caravan by yourself, do not forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most popular type of caravan. It has 4 strong walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan might vary in length and in the amount of rooms, but in most cases it provides quite convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in 1 or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great choice if you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by almost any car and usually includes most of the elementary equipment, like shower or a fridge. Tent trailer provide you considerable amount of living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this type is very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a lifting roof, which can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

4) Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as added expandable area on the ends of the van, which creates a perfect spot to place additional beds, in case you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by large families.

E Camper trailers – they offer less living space than the types described before, but because of the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient and affordable way of travelling. 

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

Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – such decision hinges on whether you have right amount of time to cover required route and whether the caravan itself is working.

If you want to hire a transport company to ship your caravan, make sure you have the exact measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance hasn’t expired. In addition, inform the transport provider about condition of the caravan – for example whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to ship your caravan you don’t have to worry about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the regulations apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies often have product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during shipment.
