Static Caravan Versus Touring Caravan

Static caravan versus touring caravan

When it comes to choosing a holiday home, most people find themselves deciding on a caravan or some kind.

The question is.. which one?

The main consideration that most will have to make is: static caravan versus touring caravan. Both a static caravan and a touring caravan have their own unique benefits.  Both will allow a person to create their own kind of holiday escape. Hopefully Parklink can help you decide which one is right for you?

Freedom and diversity

If you desire freedom along with the ability to travel to a variety of different locations, a touring caravan of course presents many more benefits.  You can research different locations, holiday parks and campsites. This means you are able to travel to a different part of the country every time that you want to go on holiday with family and friends. Those with a passion for exploring will relish the opportunity to hit the open road and take in different sights, making it ideally suited to those with a more adventurous nature. It even means that you can take your caravan abroad to places like France, which is renowned for its exceptional campsites. In this sense, a touring caravan provides much more scope than a static caravan, making for more varied holidays for those that choose one.

That said, Static Caravan owners can join online groups which allow you to exchange holiday weeks with one another at no charge.  This can be a great way to really get good use from your ‘static’ caravan.  Always remember to check with your park operator to see if this is permitted on your park.

Which one is the best value

 There are a number of cost implications that you need to consider for both options. Fuel costs can be something most people overlook when choosing a touring caravan. It is also worth considering the vehicle that you will need to manoeuvre the caravan. There are specific vehicles that are more effective when it comes to towing a static caravan. So if you’re serious about owning one, you may find that you need to invest a new car as well as the touring caravan.

Static caravans may have the added benefit of subletting opportunities. This means that you can make your holiday home into a form of additional income. This income can be used to help off set outgoings associated with running your static caravan. Static caravan and touring caravan ownership can pretty much balance out once you take everything into account.  This obviously depends on the type of holiday parks you choose and the type of static or touring caravan you opt for.  Static caravan ownership can start from as little as £10,000 for a pre owned model and there will be ongoing running costs to consider. In terms of affordability, a static caravan does offer an affordable holiday home.

Which option is least stressful!

Picture the scene.. it’s Friday afternoon, you’ve had a stressful week at work and you’re looking forward to jumping in your car and heading to the caravan with the family.

If you own a static caravan, this is much simpler. There’s no need to load up and attach the touring caravan to your car. Furthermore, you won’t need to spend time searching and booking a site. With a static you can simply pop down to your home from home whenever the mood takes you. Most people tend to leave clothing and food etc at their static caravans so it it ready for your arrival.

A touring caravan may seem like a carefree option in theory, but often it actually requires more planning ahead, making spontaneous trips more challenging.

Now that you’ve considered static caravan versus touring caravan, which one do you think is more suited to you and the type of holidays you want to enjoy? Whichever you’d prefer, you’ll find plenty of great ones for sale here.
