There are three key questions you should keep in mind:

  • What’s the best layout for us?
  • What will our car tow?
  • What do we want to spend?

 

What's the best caravan for us

Think about how many people will be staying in or visiting your caravan, and how you plan to use it.

Are there just two of you, or do you have family and friends to take into account? Are you planning quiet quality time as a couple, or do you want plenty of space where other people can sleep and you have lots of room to relax and entertain?

Do you want fixed beds or a more flexible arrangement that offers more living space? Would you prefer a larger bathroom where you can wash and dress in comfort, or would you be happy with a smaller 'wet room' so you can have a larger living area?

Caravans for couples

Two-berth - Good choice if you're planning holidays for just the two of you. Most have either the kitchen or the bathroom at the rear. You can use the settees as single beds or make up a double bed across the width of the caravan.

Fixed-bed four-berth - Ideal if guests will be joining you occasionally. They usually have a fixed double bed plus two singles in the living area.

Your fixed bed can run along the length of the caravan or run across the width, with the bathroom and toilet right alongside - often behind a partition. If it is fitted at the rear of the caravan, you can walk around three sides of it, and you have the option of a separate bathroom.

Side dining area four-berth - Have a permanent dining area, so you can leave the bed made up in the lounge if you want to. The dining area can also be converted to bunk beds for young children.

Twin-bed caravans - Perfect for couples and families for teenagers. Four single beds, with a kitchen in the middle and bathroom across the rear.

Caravans for families

Five berths - Good solution if you have children holidaying with you. There are two main options:

  • Bunk beds, some offering a separate family area where youngsters can play, eat and watch TV, leaving the adults to relax together.
  • Two lounge-dining areas at each end of the caravan, with the kitchen and bathroom in the centre.

Six berths - Single-axle models have two or three permanent bunk beds plus two more that you can make up in a side dining area. Twin-axle options offer more space because they are longer, and come in a variety of layouts; a sound choice if you plan to use your caravan all year round.

Side dining area four-berth - Have a permanent dining area, so you can leave the bed made up in the lounge if you want to. The dining area can also be converted to bunk beds for young children.

Twin-bed caravans - Perfect for couples and families for teenagers. Four single beds, with a kitchen in the middle and bathroom across the rear.
