Transporting a caravan

Moving a caravan is usually associated with great deal of difficulties, but actually it is much less complex than we realize. If you plan on shipping a caravan on your own, don’t forget to make sure that your driving license enables you to do it.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most usual kind of caravan. This type has 4 strong walls as well as a full height rood. It can differ in length as well as in the number of rooms, still generally it ensures pretty satisfying travelling environment. Conventional caravans come in one or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a fine choice if you might want to decrease the costs. Tent trailer may be towed by nearly every car and usually includes most of the elementary equipment, like hot water or a fridge. Tent trailer provide you large living space but offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this kind is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, which can expand the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan has all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as additional expandable area on the foot and the head of the vehicle, which creates a convienient area to fit additional beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are the most popular among big families.

5) Camper trailers – this type of caravan offers less living space than most of the types described above, but because they provide with all the elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as affordable manner of travelling. 

F 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. Due to its large size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (e. g. a pickup truck).


Sometimes it is impossible to ship a caravan on your own – it depends on whether you have enough time to cover needed distance and whether the caravan itself is functional.

In case you choose to find a shipping company to move your caravan, verify if you give them the specific measurements of the caravan. Additionally check if its insurance is up-to-date. Moreover, inform the hauler about condition of the caravan – like whether brakes are fully functional.

When hiring a transport provider to transport your caravan you do not need to worry about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements apply to the transport provider. Moreover, transport providers often have product liability insurance, which ensures you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during shipment.

Price of shipping a caravan

Cost of transporting a caravan depends on its dimensions and weight (as it is with almost every type of loads}. Other than that , the price is also defined by the condition of the caravan – if it is fully functional, you are likely to pay less.
