Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently associated with great deal of problems, but in fact it is much less complex than we realize. If you want to transport 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 usual kind of caravan. It has four solid walls as well as a full height rood. It can vary in length as well as in the number of rooms, yet in most cases it ensures quite convenient travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have one or two axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great choice in case you need to lower the costs. It may be towed by most of the cars , moreover it usually includes most of the elementary equipment, such as hot water and a fridge. Tent trailer gives you considerable living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  they are similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, that can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan has all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as extra expandable section on the foot and the head of the van, which creates a convienient spot to place extra beds, should 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 above, but because they provide with 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. 

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

It is not always possible to ship a caravan on your own – it hinges on whether you have right amount of time to cover necessary route and whether the caravan itself is functional.

In case you choose to hire a shipping provider to ship your caravan, confirm you know the exact measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance is up-to-date. Moreover, inform the transport provider about state of the caravan – e.g. whether lights work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not have to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the regulations concern the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping companies frequently have product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during shipment.

Cost of moving a caravan
