Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is often correlated with a lot of problems, but in fact it is much less complex than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan by yourself, do not forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do that.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most common type of caravan. This type has 4 solid walls and a full height rood. It might range in dimensions as well as in the number of rooms, however generally it guarantees pretty convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in one or 2 axles.

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

C Pop-top caravans -  they are very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, that helps to 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 has all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as extra expandable section on the ends of the van, which is a perfect area to place additional beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially popular among big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers not as much living space as most of the types described above, but thanks to having all the elementary equipment (shower, fridge and so on) it is a convenient as well as economical manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest type of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel pleasantly. Due to its large 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 ship a caravan by yourself – such decision depends on whether you have enough time to drive necessary route and whether the caravan itself is working.

In case you choose to hire a shipping provider to move your caravan, confirm you have the precise measurements of the caravan. Moreover check if its insurance hasn’t expired. Moreover, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – like whether brakes work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t have to think about your driving license or speed limits  - all the rules apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, shipping providers frequently have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during shipment.
