A touring caravan, which is also know as a travel trailer in the USA, is a traditional way to take a mobile vacation. The caravan is a self contained living area that is towed behind your vehicle. In this way, your accommodation travels to your destination with you, but once you get to the campsite or RV park, you can unhook the trailer and still have the flexibility of driving around the local area in your car.

With a caravan, camping is luxurious and fun, as you can travel, stay in campsites and still enjoy comfortable living quarters. A modern caravan has the benefits of plumbing, cooking equipment, a refrigerator, dining area, beds and storage space too. If you are travelling with kids, they will really enjoy exploring this miniature version of a house.

In European countries, the narrower roads make the flexibility of a caravan and car the ideal way to visit a new country, and the popularity of camping means that there are campsites all over Europe, and they are usually much cheaper to stay in than hotels. Campsites are typically friendly places, where children from different families and nationalities have the opportunity to mingle and play together.

Some, for example in Paris and London, are close to public transportation, allowing campers a convenient option for travelling into the city to see the sights.

Touring caravans are available in every price range and comfort level, ranging from tiny teardrop campers to bus sized luxury fifth wheel trailers. They are much more secure than tent camping, but for added security and financial backup, consider getting touring caravan insurance quotes from a caravan insurancespecialist.

Meanwhile caravanning is a great way to travel, make new friends and enjoy the outdoors, with somewhere warm and comfortable to go back to. It’s the ideal way to camp.
