Design the perfect shelter for your caravan

Caravan Shelter: Safeguarding Your Caravan

A caravan shelter is more than just a convenient accessory; it’s a safeguard for your valuable investment. Proper protection year-round is essential to preserve your caravan’s pristine condition. When it comes to selecting the right caravan shelter, there’s a plethora of options available in terms of size, color, and cost. To help you design the perfect shelter for your caravan, here are our top tips to consider.


The first thing we get asked when someone inquires about a shelter for their caravan is:

“How much will it cost to put a shelter in?”

There is a tonne of different sizes available, meaning the price point will vary. It’s important to design the perfect shelter for your current situation, so once you have your design we can give you a more accurate quote. You can request a free quote here.

Caravan shelter height (You’ll need more than you think!)

Don’t just take into consideration the overall height of your caravan, make sure you include attachments like air conditioners and aerials that may sit above it. It’s always better to go with extra height, because you may upgrade your caravan in the future.

Caravan shelter depth

When considering depth, you want to take into account some extra space to be able to walk around the outside of your caravan. Although you may think adding extra depth is going to increase the price overall, it is still cheaper than having to rebuild a new shelter later on if it’s too small.

Shelter access tips

Getting your access right is vital to building a caravan shelter. We recommend considering where your shelter will go and where the door will be located in advance and measuring this out. Drive your caravan into your yard and see if you can get into this area with ease. Make the door as wide as possible!

Allowing for angles up or down

It’s important to consider the angle of your driveway that will lead to your shelter. If the driveway surface is flat then you don’t need to worry about this, but if it goes uphill or downhill, then consider adding more height to the door opening. Make sure to discuss this with your builder.

Thank you Peter for your care and attention to detail with building my colorbond garage. I always felt you listened to my concerns and discussed options with me. You carried out the build methodically and carefully with a minimum of disruption while considering your surroundings on site at my home.

Thank you for doing a fantastic job on my carport and I really appreciate the extra work you did to flash it to prevent rain coming in between that an existing structures.
It looks great.
