Transporting a caravan

Shipping a caravan is frequently correlated with a lot of difficulties, but actually it is much easier than we realize. If you plan on transporting a caravan on your own, remember to check if your driving license enables you to do it.

Types of caravans

A Conventional caravan – as can be deduced from the name, this is the most usual type of caravan. This type has four solid walls as well as a full height rood. A conventional caravan can differ in length and in the number of rooms, but in general it provides quite pleasant travelling conditions. Conventional caravans come in 1 or 2 axles.

2) Tent trailer – is a type of caravan that is a good choice if you want to lower the costs. Tent trailer can be towed by most of the cars and usually includes most of the elementary equipment, such as shower or a fridge. It gives you considerable living space but offers very little wind resistance.

3) Pop-top caravans -  this type is similar to conventional caravans with the addition of a expendable roof, which can increase the living space. Pop-top caravans, much like a tent trailer does not offer much wind resistance.

D Pop-out caravans – this type of caravan is equipped with all the features of a pop-top caravan as well as extra pop-out section on the ends of the van, which is a convienient spot to fit extra beds, should you need them. Pop-out caravans are especially favored by big families.

5) Camper trailers – they offer not as much living space as most of the types described before, but because they provide with the most needed elementary equipment (shower, hot water and so on) it is a comfortable as well as affordable manner of travelling. 

F The fifth-wheeler – this is the largest type of caravan. It offers considerable amount of living space, so that whole families can travel comfortably. Due to its considerable 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 transport a caravan by yourself – it depends on whether you have enough time to cover necessary distance and whether the caravan itself is functional.

If you choose to hire a shipping company to transport your caravan, confirm you know the specific dimensions of the caravan. Also check if its insurance is up-to-date. Moreover, warn the hauler about condition of the caravan – for example whether lights work properly.

When hiring a transport provider to move your caravan you don’t need to worry about your driving license or speed limits  - all the rules apply to the transport provider. Furthermore, transport companies often have product liability insurance, which will ensure you a compensation, if anything happens with the caravan during transportation.

Cost of transporting a caravan

Price of shipping a caravan hinges on its dimensions and weight (similar to almost every type of cargo}. Other than that , the price is also defined by the condition of the vehicle – if it is able to drive on its own, you will likely get cheaper price.
