How do caravans look like?
Caravans are no motor vehicles adapted to living, which are attached to the car with a special hook. When on the road they are towed, but while on the parking, they can be detached from a car. This has some advantages. When you stay on the campsite a little bit longer, you can freely use your car without the necessity to pull your caravan everywhere you go. This solution is not for the people who own campers, in which the living space is permanently attached to the driver’s cab. The downside of having a caravan is that you need appropriately strong car which will be able to pull this “home”, and you can’t stay in the caravan while driving. This is for the safety of every caravanning enthusiast.
Caravans may differ both in size and standard. A particularly important aspect of any caravan is its chassis, on whose durability depends the safety of the travelers. Another aspect which is very important when it comes to the comfort would be solid shock-absorbers.
When you stay on the campsites, it is very important to have a comfortable caravan. Solid and tight body, as well as the necessary equipment constitute the basis for good holidays. Any, even the smallest and simplest caravan, must have in its facilities a place to sleep and rest, a bathroom, a kitchenette and simple furniture which allows to securely store the necessary equipment and clothing. Thanks to this the caravan creates something, what people often call “small, mobile apartment”.
