We site your unit for you
Available from 15ft to 39ft body and, as many are Slide Out Caravans, they have slide-out walls taking them from 8ft up to 14ft wide at a touch of a button.
By law these are classed as tourers (up to 40ft long) so the planning regulations are different to statics and also you are not fixed to the one site or even country to live in.
You can site them permanently, or if you wish to move to a new destination it’s no problem as they can be towed on UK and EU roads. This way you are not fixed to one caravan site (or even one country) giving you the perfect opportunity to have all the benefits of the size and luxury of static park homes or static caravans but with the added advantage that you can move them anytime, anywhere. We can even move the caravan for you at 48 hours notice to anywhere in the UK and Europe at extremely low transport rates starting at only £150.
We have a vast list of parks willing to take larger caravans either seasonal or open year round all over UK and Europe and can arrange a search for an ideal site for you once you have visited our showrooms and narrowed down the type of unit you want. Don’t worry you are not obliged to buy at this stage! We just need to have all the correct information so that we can find you an ideal site in your chosen area and budget for your choice of unit.
So many people now are using UK tourers, permanently pitched but they are only up to 23ft body by max 8ft wide. Our caravans can be up to 39 ft x 14ft and when you want to move you press a button and slide in the walls (back to 8ft wide) and you are ready to go on your way – simple!
All our caravans are fully super pitched with fully insulated walls, roof and floor (floor also heated) and included in our pricing is over £8000 worth of slide out walls being a standard feature (more than a UK caravan). Also you can get: air-conditioning, big fridge freezer, full size bathroom, awning, king size island beds, central heating, fibreglass walls and all aluminium frame (no wood in the frame so no frame rot).
With prices from only £16,995 to £39,999 and we can deliver anywhere in the world. We also have a selection of used units from £11,995.
All this luxury for less than a small basic UK touring caravan!
American Caravans Direct is a family run business based in the USA with agent offices in the UK, France and Spain (Germany opening soon). The owners have over twenty-five years’ experience of supplying American RV’s and vehicles to the UK and European market, even to the extent of being responsible for the design and adaptation of the electronic breaking systems for use in the UK which now form part of the construction and use law.
All of our products are supplied from our USA company direct which saves you £1000’s and we can even deliver to your door if required.
Apart from the products and floor plans found on our website, we have access to over fifty other manufacturer’s products including custom building companies who will manufacture to your exact requirements.
Do not let anyone tell you they have an American product exclusive. We can supply any make from any manufacturer and guarantee to beat any like for like genuine quote by a minimum of 5%.
Whether it’s for relaxing weekend breaks or a grand tour somewhere more exotic, we can advise you on the best combination. We import on demand to your specific requirements but keep a representative stock (not for sale) at our premises to make sure you see the quality of the build and can work out the layout and size of unit that will suit your needs. So contact us for all your American Caravans, American Travel Trailers or American Static Tourers requirements.
The units have all the luxuries of a small home, while retaining the flexibility of a Caravan. Built in America, they are finished to an exceptional standard, with solid wood throughout, expansive storage, and elegant space-saving features, but still extra light weight due to the aluminium frame construction.
Add to this luxuries such as a king size bed, large fridge/freezer, air conditioning, microwave, full bath or shower and external awnings just to name a few standard items (see our price lists, there are so many items fitted as standard you will not believe it!).
It is very easy to see why these units are so popular in the European market and don’t forget – they are much cheaper than UK/European-built units and are made to last, with no re-sale value issues as once you have one of these you will never want to sell it!
A COMMON MISCONCEPTION!
People think that fifth-wheelers tow better than touring caravans – well this is true if you compare it to a UK touring caravan – but not true if you are comparing it to an American touring caravan. On an American touring caravan the wheels are set 2/3rds of the way back on the caravan to stop swaying (not in the middle like UK caravans which causes the swaying).
All American tourers and fifth wheelers are designed to the same regulations to virtually eliminate swaying, also we now have wide trax axles with 18? gap between axles and 14? or 15? wheels giving even more stability and weight distribution.
With an American touring caravan you also do not need that expensive bracket bolted into the bed of a pickup, which frees up precious load space.
