A caravan is a trailer towed behind a road vehicle to provide a place to sleep which is generally more comfortable than a tent. A caravan provides the means for people to have their own home on a journey or holiday, without relying on a hotel.

Public campsites are found and are popular throughout the world, with more than 2,000 campsites in the UK, ranging from large sites with full family facilities to small very basic hideaway sites, normally found in the most rural of settings.

Caravanning is enjoyed by the widestest range of ages, being an ideal family recreation of fun and adventure.

One member of the group must hold a current driving licence and be competent to drive with a caravan in tow, apart from this only normal household skills are kneaded.
Care should be taken when booking a site as to on site facilities available.

Caravanning gives the freedom to access many of the parts of the countryside when you want too, for as long as you want too, at an affordable price.
Caravanning gives the freedom to visit the coast, the remotest of countryside, visit national attractions or visit friends or relatives without actually imposing on their hospitality, all from the comfort of your own surroundings and possessions.

For the more dedicated of caravanner, there are several caravan clubs which organise rallies and meets, often with a theme, (line dance, walking, fireworks), these include communal BBQs or coffee meets allowing firm friendships to be formed.

Apart from choice of caravan, there is a further choose of motor homes (self propelled caravans), or trailer tent (compact trailer which unpacks as a caravan). These options should be considered carefully as each has its own advantages/disadvantages.

To many the caravan becomes that dreamed of country cottage, with the advantage that the location can change with the weather or merest of desire.
