Holidaying in a Static Caravan – Here’s 10 Tips on How to Make Your Holiday Perfect

You’ve been planning to take a break from your daily routine. Finally, you find the perfect place for a weekend getaway, but then you realize that a hotel room doesn’t feel quite right.  You’d still prefer to cook your own food, have a dinner table, and all those ‘homely’ stuff. Well, static caravans are the thing for you.

A static caravan is a pre-assembled frame, built in a factory on a permanently connected chassis before being shifted to site either by being towed or on a trailer. They are used as permanent homes, for holiday or temporary accommodation. Although they can be moved, they are designed to stay in one place. Like any other caravan, it is built in with several features like a bed, cooktop, dining table, toilet and many more. Simply put, it gives you a home away from home feeling.

Here are 10 tips to make your static caravan holidaying perfect –

Spare Bags

Often Most new Static Caravans will even have their own washing machines, but just in case yours doesn’t remember to take some big carrier bags in your suitcase to put all your dirty laundry so when you return from your holiday you can throw the dirty laundry right into the washing machine without having to pick the clean and dirty ones out.

See the Sea

If you are planning to spend most of your holiday on the beach, you better choose a holiday park near the beach rather than something far away, so you can go straight to the beach when you feel like it instead of loading up the car and driving down only to waste time searching for a spot on the beach.

Mirror Mirror

While taking a shower, you find out that the bathroom mirror is completely misted up which annoys you. Just wipe the mirror with a damp cloth and a few drops of washing liquid, and then leave it to dry. The mirror will remain clear for the duration of the holiday as the washing liquid prevents mist formation.


Just like the bedding equipment, sanitary items are also pre equipped in most static caravans. But it is always better to be cautious and carry a few toilet rolls, shampoo and soap along so that you don’t have any problems during your holiday.

Medicines and First-aid kit

It is always safe to take medicines like paracetamol, ibuprofen, and other tablets you might need. A well-equipped first aid kit is also a must.

Miscellaneous items

Sometimes the smallest things can ruin your trip. Things like batteries, fuses, bulbs and water containers are necessities for a perfect trip. Make sure to check them all beforehand.
