Transporting a caravan

Transporting a caravan is often associated with great deal of problems, but actually it is much less difficult than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, remember to make sure that your driving license allows you to do it.

Kinds of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as the name suggests, this is the most common kind of caravan. This type has 4 solid walls as well as a full height rood. It can vary in dimensions as well as in the amount of rooms, however generally it guarantees pretty convenient travelling environment. Conventional caravans may have one or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a great alternative in case you need to decrease the costs. It may be towed by nearly every car , moreover it usually includes most of the elementary equipment, like hot water and a fridge. Tent trailer gives you considerable living space however offers much less wind resistance than a conventional caravan.

C Pop-top caravans -  this type is very much alike conventional caravans with the addition of a lifting roof, that helps expanding the living space. Pop-top caravans, similar to a tent trailer provides very little wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this kind of caravan has all the advantages of a pop-top caravan and extra pop-out section on the foot and the head of the vehicle, which is a perfect spot to fit additional beds, should you are in need of them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by large families.

E Camper trailers – they offer not as much living space as the types mentioned above, but because of the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) camper trailers are considered to be a convenient as well as economical manner of travelling. 

6) The fifth-wheeler – this is the biggest kind of caravan. It provides with considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel comfortably. Because of its large size,  the fifth-wheeler must be towed by a larger vehicle instead of a regular car (like a pickup truck).

It is not always possible to transport a caravan on your own – it depends on whether you have right amount of time to travel required route and whether the caravan itself is working.

If you decide to find a transport provider to move your caravan, double-check if you know the specific measurements of the caravan. Moreover confirm that its insurance is up-to-date. Futhermore, inform the hauler about condition of the caravan – like whether lights work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to ship your caravan you do not need to think about your driving license or crossing the borders  - all the requirements concern the transport provider. Furthermore, transport companies frequently invest in product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if any damage is done to the caravan during transportation.
