Caravan Holiday Homes

Caravan Holiday Homes

Caravan Holiday Homes have massively progressed over the years. They are no longer just a basic getaway for people on lower incomes, but a luxury getaway a variety of people can enjoy. Caravans can feature double glazing & central heating as well as washing machines, fridge freezers and dishwashers. This makes for an easier more enjoyable break away from home.

Caravan manufacturers generally have their own methods of building which is unique to them.

How are Static Caravans made?


Static Caravans are built on a steel chassis, which can sometimes be fully galvanised. A galvanised chassis protects it from the elements and can last noticeably longer than a standard chassis.


The floor is laid with a timber framed insulated panel. This is followed by the sides, which are built with bonded composite panels containing the insulation. Once all panels are in and joined together the caravan has an overall structure and is starting to take shape. The cladding is then applied to the outside which can be aluminium panels, canexel or even timber panels.

Doors and windows

To give doors and windows stability sometimes steel frames can be used. The insulated roof systems are designed to withstand severe weather conditions.


Lastly the roof tile affect system as well as exterior gutters and downpipes are built on. This completes the basic structure of the holiday home.

Fixtures and fittings

Manufacturers use trained professionals to fit out the kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. Carpets are laid and all the finishing touches are taken care of.

Quality control

The Caravan would then go through quality control checks before it leaves the factory.
