Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is frequently associated with a lot of difficulties, but actually it is much less complex than it seems. If you want to transport a caravan on your own, remember to check if 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. It has four solid walls and a full height rood. A conventional caravan can differ in length and in the number of rooms, however in most cases it ensures quite satisfying travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have one or 2 axles.

B Tent trailer – this type of caravan is a great choice if you want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer can be towed by almost any car , moreover it usually contains the most basic equipment, like hot water or a fridge. Tent trailer gives you considerable living space however offers very little wind resistance.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is very much alike conventional caravans with the exception of a expendable roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not provide much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the advantages of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable area on the ends of the van, which creates a convienient area to place additional beds, in case you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among large families.

5) Camper trailers – they offer not as much living space as the types mentioned before, but thanks to having the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a comfortable as well as budget manner of travelling. 

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


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan by yourself – it hinges on whether you have enough time to travel required distance and whether the caravan itself is capable of covering the distance.

If you choose to find a shipping provider to ship your caravan, verify if you give them the exact measurements of the caravan. Moreover make sure that its insurance is up-to-date. In addition, instruct the hauler about state of the caravan – for example whether brakes work properly.

When relying on a transport provider to transport your caravan you don’t need to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the regulations concern the transport provider. Moreover, shipping providers often invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during transportation.

Price of moving a caravan

Price of transporting a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of loads}. Other than that , the cost is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is undamaged, you will likely pay less.
