Caravanning in the UK

The freedom of the open road and being able to stop where you want when you want is the stuff that dreams are made of for many holidaymakers in Britain, and nothing quite affords this luxury as much as a caravanning holiday. Whether you have ever owned your own touring caravan before, or not, there has never been a better time, with the economic climate, to consider investing in a modern caravan and having the holidays you have always dreamed of.

Today’s modern caravans are little homes on wheels, not the tin shacks of old that veered perilously across motorways behind the vehicles towing them and that were the subject of much derision and the butt of many jokes. Those who shudder at the memory of spending childhood holidays in these vans always get a pleasant surprise when they see what you get today for your money and much they have been improved over the years.

There is a growing trend for caravanning in the UK as more of us choose to turn our backs on the traditional package holidays to the Med to spend their breaks discovering what our own country has to offer. Those who invest in a static caravan often regret the decision after a year or two as ground costs don’t come cheap, and they often find they have to rent out their precious  vans to enable them to meet the costs of its upkeep.

The savvy caravanner who owns a tourer will only have to pay out for storage facilities if they don’t have a drive or somewhere else suitable to keep it between uses. There are literally now thousands of sites across the length and breadth of the UK that welcome touring caravans, and with pitches offering water and electrical hook ups, as well as the numerous activities available, it isn’t hard to see why they have become so popular again.

If you are considering buying your own touring caravan then an Internet search will bring up so many results you can feel somewhat bamboozled.
