Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently associated with great deal of problems, but actually it is much easier than it seems. If you want to ship a caravan by yourself, don’t forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Kinds of caravans

1) Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual kind of caravan. It has four strong walls and a full height rood. A conventional caravan can vary in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, yet in general it ensures pretty comfortable travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in 1 or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great choice in case you need to lower the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by almost any car and usually contains most of the elementary equipment, like shower or a fridge. It gives you considerable amount of living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this kind is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, that can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

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

E Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as 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 comfortable and economical manner of travelling. 

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


It is not always possible to ship a caravan on your own – such decision depends on whether you have right amount of time to drive necessary route and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

In case you want to find a shipping company to move your caravan, check if you give them the exact measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance is up-to-date. Futhermore, warn the hauler about condition of the caravan – e.g. whether brakes work properly.

Furthermore, shipping providers frequently invest in product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, should anything happens with the caravan during shipment.
