Caravans were once the scourge of the road, a hatred that was exacerbated by the diatribes of certain TV and newspaper personalities, and of TV shows that did all they could to destroy these mobile homes.
However, not only are caravans slipping down the list of most hated things on the road, but the rise of static caravan parks has meant that caravans are actually now back in fashion, and many families are choosing such holiday parks over trips abroad.
The reasons are numerous, and the economic crisis is in part to blame – or thank, depending on your view. With less expendable income, families took their holidays here in Britain in the seemingly less glamorous surroundings of caravan parks. However, the beautiful holiday parks in Wales visited by such families completely changed many people’s minds and not only were such holidays cheaper and easier, but they also allowed people to holiday in an area where they spoke the language and liked the cuisine.
Furthermore, many families simply realised just how beautiful Britain is and rather than simply seeing a beach and very little else on their travels, they were finding that they were seeing genuinely beautiful and interesting attractions, and learning far more about British history and culture at the very same time.
Furthermore, it suddenly seemed affordable for people to buy their very own holiday home. With the cost of reaching such sited caravans being extremely low and with individuals finding that they could therefore easily afford the cost of buying such a home, many people have actually now decided to have the majority of their future holidays here in Britain simply due to how flexible, inviting and simple stays in a caravan happen to be.
So, rather than being a hated figure, the humble caravan is now the poster boy of holidays at home, and not only will people get to have breaks far more often by using caravans, but those that buy such static options will also find that they have a home away from home each and every time they go away.
