Before you start choosing a caravan, you need to take a number of things into consideration including your towing vehicle and towing equipment.
It is essential that you not only find the slide on caravan that is right for you, but the combination of the caravan, towing vehicle and towing equipment must all be suitable. After all you do not want to spend a lot of money on a big caravan when you only require a small caravan. You equally, do not want to buy a big caravan and then try to tow it with a small car not suitable to tow that weight. Equipping your van and towing vehicle properly is just as important as choosing a caravan.
"Normal" Full-height Caravans
There are many types of caravans. A caravan provides comfort and is equipped with all the appliances you would expect from home. A caravan can hold a bed, refrigerators can be stocked, daily utensils can be easily found, and clothes can be stored in drawers and wardrobes. There are many options for axles, door positions and sleeping capacities. You can also choose between off-road and on-road models.
Folding Caravans & Campers.
These units are made of lightweight materials. These units have similar internal arrangements to regular caravans. The roof section is raised mechanically to expose canvas walls. The ends slide out to make room for the beds. These are sometimes called camper-trailers by some manufacturers. Both off-road and on-road models are possible.
