Which Caravan Axle Type Best For Travelling Couples?

If you and your partner are thinking of purchasing a caravan, you may be caught up in deciding what the best caravan axle type is best for your home from home. Like anything, there are pros and cons to both, this guide will allow you to make an informed decision on what axle type best suits you and your partner. 

There are two types of caravans, a single axle which has two wheels, and a double axle, sometimes also referred to as a twin axle, which has four wheels. A single-axle caravan is smaller, lighter weight and more affordable compared to the double-axel which is larger, and more spacious but typically more expensive. 

It’s also worth bearing in mind that the more wheels a caravan has, the more stability and grip it will have when towing, but the harder it will be to manoeuvre. This means a single-axle  

When it comes to choosing what axel type suites you best, there are multiple factors to take into consideration, such as:

  • What’s your budget for a caravan?
  • The vehicle that will be towing the caravan, what’s the tow rating for your vehicle?
  • How much living space and storage space do you desire?
  • What is the preferred interior layout for your caravan?

If you’re a beginner in the world of caravans and have a smaller budget, with a vehicle that has a lower towing capacity, then a single-axle caravan is going to be suited more towards you and your partner. On the other hand, if you desire a caravan with a large amount of living space with a vehicle with a higher towing capacity, then a double-axel caravan would be better suited to you. 


Which Caravan Berth is Best For Couples?

A caravan berth is essentially how many people the caravan sleeps. This typically ranges between 2 and 6 so a 2 berth means it’ll accompany 2 people, and a 6 berth will have living space for 6 people. 

2 Berth Caravans 

If you’re a couple that’ll be travelling just the pair of you, a 2 berth may be perfect for you. But it’s worth thinking about the future also – will your family grow in the near future? Will you have guests staying over? If you have decided on a 2-berth caravan, the only option you’ll have is you rather have two single beds or a double bed. This will likely be one of the cheaper options of caravans but also will have the least amount of room.

3 & 4 Berth Caravans 

A 3 or 4-berth caravan is perfect for couples who will likely have an extra addition to the family in the near future or will have 1-2 guests, potentially a second couple. On the contrary, if you’re just a couple and would appreciate the extra living space, a 3 or 4-berth caravan may be more suited to you regardless of whether you will have guests or not. Although the extra living space of a 3 or 4-berth caravan for two people will increase living space and comfortability, it’ll raise the price of the caravan from a 2-berth model. 

5 Berth Caravans

A 5-berth caravan will likely only be necessary if you’re going to be having guests frequently, potentially another couple or family members. If you and your partner will be travelling alone, a 5-berth caravan may be slightly over the top, unless you appreciate the extra living space and have a relatively large budget. The larger the caravan, the higher the towing capacity the vehicle you are towing the caravan with will have to have. This is also something to consider when choosing a caravan berth with your partner. 

Fixed Bed Caravan Berth 

The typical caravan offers the option of transforming a sofa into a bed or having a fold-away bed which then allows for more living space. On the other hand, a fixed bed berth is where the beds aren’t able to transform into sofas or extra living space, they are fixed within the caravan.
