Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is usually correlated with a lot of problems, but actually it is much less complex than we realize. If you plan on shipping a caravan on your own, don’t forget to check if your driving license enables you to do that.

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most popular kind of caravan. It has four solid walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan can range in dimensions and in the amount of rooms, still generally it guarantees quite convenient travelling conditions. Conventional caravans may have 1 or two axles.
