- May 9, 2020
Caravans come in many shapes and sizes, each serving a specific purpose depending on the type of traveler you are. If you’re thinking of purchasing a caravan, it’s important to know each type so that you can choose the right one. The following are some of your options.
The Conventional Caravan
The conventional or regular caravan is the most basic type. This is most likely what you think of when someone mentions a caravan. With this option, you’ll get a full-bodied vehicle.
It has four solid walls that make it feel sturdy. Depending on the size, it could be up to 32 feet long, which is big and gives you a lot of space to live as you travel. It offers plenty of storage and usually comes with several rooms along with built-in furniture and equipment to make your life on the road much more comfortable.
The Tent Caravan
The tent caravan is another option worth considering. This travel trailer can be towed by virtually any vehicle because it doesn’t weigh as much as other types of caravans, including the more traditional one just mentioned. All you need is a vehicle with a hitch.
The tent could be folded down easily, and it comes in different sizes. If you look at it, you won’t think there’s much space, but there’s enough space. You could get a tent trailer with things like a shower, an air conditioner, and a fridge, just to name a few things. In essence, you’re getting everything you could ever want from a caravan.
The Pop-Top Caravan
The pop-top caravan is going to look a lot like the more traditional caravan. It has everything you might want like a kitchen and a big storage room, except this type of caravan gives people a more relaxed living environment. You might be wondering how this is possible.
Well, the pop-top option allows you to pop the roof of your trailer, giving you a lot more headroom. A caravan can feel a little small, which makes it feel a little cramped, especially if you are tall. In addition to that, the roof is lighter, and that makes it easier to tow, which is great and increases safety. Storing a caravan like this one should be a lot easier, too.
The Pop-Out Caravan
The pop-out caravan is the perfect caravan for large families. The pop-out sections give your family more living space than you could imagine. The pop-out sections of this caravan are at the end of the van. No essential amenities are sacrificed, and you get some extra space. The pop-out sections of the caravan are usually additional beds for your family. This will let them feel like they’ve got their rooms. This is great for those who have family members who can’t stand to be in close quarters.
The Camper Caravan
The camper caravan is another good option for families. It’s one of the most popular types of caravans out there and for good reason. It’s big enough for families, and it has a sturdier build than the regular tent camper mentioned earlier, yet it has expendable features.
For example, the caravan comes with a pop-top roof, and it also comes with extendable beds. Part of what makes this type of caravan popular is it is smaller than some of the other caravans out there, which makes it easier to travel with. Most vehicles can tow it, so that’s another plus.
The Fifth-Wheeler Caravan
The fifth-wheeler option is one of the largest caravans out there. This is a caravan for those who like to feel like royalty because you have a lot of space. It’s important to keep in mind that this travel trailer will require a larger vehicle.
Usually, you need a heavy-duty truck to haul these caravans around, so keep that in mind. If you are thinking of using a smaller vehicle, then this option won’t work for you. Think of these caravans as semi trailers.
Now, you know a lot more about caravans and all your options. Try to consider all the pros and cons before you make a decision. Be sure to keep your budget in mind. The last thing you want is a finance-related headache because this is supposed to be a happy time.
