Winter holiday caravanning plans revealed

Many modern static caravans are suitable for winter use and many parks are staying open for 11 months. After the numerous lockdowns and uncertainty over the last couple of years, it’s no wonder many owners will want to go to their holiday caravan for a winter holiday this season.

In last month’s community poll, we asked owners if they would be holidaying in their static caravan or lodge this winter, or possibly going on a different kind of holiday, or if they planned to just stay at home.

Winter holiday plans

After more than 100 votes, a mighty 70 percent of caravan and lodge owners polled said they were planning a well-earned winter holiday in their pride and joy in 2021 and 2022.

But just over a quarter of voters (27 percent), said they would be staying at home this winter. This could be because their park is closed for winter or that their static caravan is not suitable for all-year round use.

Just one percent said they would be going on a winter holiday by aeroplane or going on a winter cruise.

Robert Mays said he would be staying in their Willerby Vogue until their park closed this month.

“We chose a 10-month site so we could enjoy our caravan most of the year,” he added.

Teacher, Matt Foreman, said they go to their caravan on the coast almost every weekend. They spent Christmas and new year at their caravan before the site closed for winter in early January.
