If you love spending time in nature, and you always want to see new places together with your family or your loved ones, then caravanning is the right choice for you.

Here are seven reasons why we think caravanning makes you awesome.

Connect with family and friends

In these high-tech modern times, we forget to socialise with our dear ones, family, and friends. We no longer have dinner together, we no longer spend time in the living room talking to each other. Going out camping is the perfect way to spend time with them, away from distractions. You can just enjoy their company and sit around the fire, play a game together or go hiking.

New friends

Those who are caravanning are friendly and always eager to meet new people with whom to share this passion. And what can be more awesome than to share a bottle of wine or beer with some nice people while watching the sunset or sharing stories around the campfire?

Being green

Many new caravans have included a bunch of environmentally friendly options such as wood-burning stoves, solar panels or composting toilets. Besides that, all the soft furnishings are made from sustainable sources.

Take your pet with you

Taking your pet with you is awesome. You will enjoy your vacation knowing that your pet is safe with you and not at some sort of kennel or cattery. So no more painful good byes.

Travel all year long

These days, caravans are not only for the summer time. Thanks to modern insulation methods and materials, caravans will keep you warm all year long. If there is snow or rain, you can go inside your mobile home and enjoy a nice cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, take a steaming hot shower and enjoy your time with your loved ones in comfort. 

Health benefits

Camping is great for your mental and physical health. You will get more exercise than sitting at your desk or on your sofa watching TV, and the fact that you can disconnect from hectic everyday life makes all the difference. You will get a lot of sleep to recharge your batteries, and the fresh air, sunlight and exercise will help your brain produce serotonin, also known as the happiness hormone. Being outside most of the time will keep you less stressed, and you will have time to chill and enjoy your holiday.


Caravanning gives you the freedom to do whatever you want. Go anywhere you want, whenever you want. You won’t have to worry about where to spend the night, if you find an affordable hotel or not, where to eat, etc. And in case you get bored, you can go to another place right away.

Caravanning is adventurous, making you an awesome person. Enjoy your passion, spend as much time on the road with your dear ones and you will have a more beautiful holiday than most people choosing five-star hotels and expensive resorts.
