If you are looking for your dream static caravan, all of the different options can be overwhelming to choose from! There can be confusing terminology to get to grips with, so if you are new to the lifestyle then keep reading our article which will explain everything. At KC Caravans, we are experts at recommending the best models to our customers. If you would like to know which option would suit you best, then our guide below can answer some common questions on the different types of caravans.

Touring Caravans

The two main types of caravan in the UK are static and touring. The touring option is what of most us picture when we think of caravans. They are trailer-style homes that are designed to be towed by your car. Built to be both lightweight and strong, these homes are a fantastic choice if you want to travel around the country and take your accommodation with you.

Static Caravans

Static caravans on the other hand are not designed to be towed from place to place. They are built to be transported directly to a holiday park where they stay for a long period of time. These homes remain stationary, which means that their benefits include better facilities and more comforts of home. Most of them have central heating, double glazing and fully equipped kitchens and bathrooms. They can also contain free standing furniture, giving you a comfortable and hassle-free holiday.

Holiday Homes

The term holiday home can describe any property that you own and holiday in for a short period of time. A holiday home usually refers to a static caravan that is based in a holiday park. The important thing to know is that they cannot replace your permanent residence. As well as this, most of the holiday parks are only open for 10 months of the year, so you could only stay for a limited time.

The Best Mobile Homes

You may also be hearing the term ‘mobile home’ frequently, however this phrase is quite misleading. This term usually refers to static caravans that are being used as permanent residential accommodation, meaning that they will not move at all. Both holiday homes and mobile homes stay in a fixed position, however mobile homes can be your main living residence.
