Thread Name: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
Subject: RE: Static Caravan, Anyone live in one?
I'm not real clear about what all is included under the UK term "caravan."

I lived in a 27' Airstream travel trailer for 6 years. We did travel in it some, but mostly kept it stationary, set up on a farm out in the country where the owners traveled a lit, and wanted some one there to keep an eye on the place.

I have also lived in what here in the States is properly called a "mobile home,   One was a small "park" model, 10' x 30' with a fold-out that made the living room a bit wider. I rented it. The other was a 12'x60'. I purchased it and also owned the lot it sat on. It was in a mobile home park, but everyone there owned both the lot and the mobile home on it, and all had to be on permanent foundations. They are not intended to be hauled around, but can be relocated to a different site if need be, provided they have not been placed on a permanent foundation. It is expensive to move them, and the older ones are often damaged in the process.
