At Discovery Parks, we’ve learnt (sometimes the hard way) that we all do things in very different ways. Caravanners are definitely no exception.
Caravanners are a great bunch but no two are alike. So for a bit of fun, we’ve narrowed down some of the most common caravanner personalities and exactly how you can spot them.
Does one of the below types of caravanners sound like someone you know? How many have you spotted at your favourite holiday park?
The first time caravanner. Give them a clear berth when they’re reversing into the caravan park.
The Chiller has no plans and is happy to go with the flow and see where they end up every day. They are often found sitting in a deck chair, with a beer, staring at a large body of water.
Loves an itinerary. They relish the opportunity to fine tune every nitty gritty detail of a holiday and has every second, of every day planned out.
Pinches every penny! You’re more likely to find them parked by the side of the road at night than in an actual holiday park.
We all know one; The Repeater goes back to the same holiday park year after year. They’ve had a standing booking on a particular site, on the same weekend, for the last 20 years.
Expects everything to be exactly like it is at home. Complains when it isn’t.
They're basically professional travellers, and they're not shy about letting you know. They've been everywhere, and they'll tell you how to properly park.
These are the people that only seem to ever travel in a group. Often found taking over the camp kitchen or the BBQs. Don’t park next to them unless you want to be kept up all night!
The ‘Maybe Next Year’
They retired, bought a caravan, but the caravan has never actually left the driveway.
They've brought their camera on all of their adventures - and they want to show you all 5,000 photos they've taken so far. Four hours later and you haven't even made it halfway.
The Chatty Cathy
Will talk to anyone and everyone! Guaranteed to be your new best friend by the time you leave the holiday park.
The Forgetful One
You have to love these folks, they have the best of intentions. They've come to park, expecting to relax and unwind. Instead, they've forgotten the BBQ, the ice, the linen, and a change of clothes for tomorrow.
The ‘No Kids Allowed’
Loves peace and quiet. Never travels during school holidays.
The Vintage Caravanner
Most likely aged between 25 and 35. Probably travelling close to home in case the vintage van doesn’t make it and needs repairs.
Takes the road less travelled. More than once their kids have contacted the local authorities because they went bush for a few days and lost phone reception.
Goes caravanning just so that they can buy new caravan gear. Attends multiple days of the Caravan & Camping Show. Always has the latest gadgets and accessories.
