Top Tips for Designing A Shed for Your Caravan

When you have spent thousands of dollars on a caravan, you want to make sure that it is protected all year round.

You want more than just a basic carport plastic cover, and are thinking about the best sheds that would fit your caravan.

There are plenty of possibilities when you are thinking about constructing a space especially for your caravan, and Just Sheds have some tips to help you find the right piece.

Planning your cost

The first thing that you should be thinking about when you are planning a shed is the cost.

Naturally, the price will depend upon the different sizes, styles and requirements for your caravan, and this is why it is so important to have the shed designed particularly for your caravan.

It is fine to get a good design for the shed, but you will have to ask about quotations and costs before agreeing to the final plan.

How tall?

You might think you know exactly how tall the shed needs to be.

Of course, you have the total height of your caravan, but this might not be the end of it.

You will want to add accessories to your caravan like air conditioners or TV aerials, and these need to be accommodated by the height of your shed.

You also want to build tall, because if you buy a larger caravan in the future, it is likely to be taller than your current model.

How long?

Again, you might think that you know how far back the shed will have to go because you know how big your caravan is.

However, it is very easy to underestimate the total length of the caravan, and you need to make the shed deep enough so that you can comfortably walk around the entire caravan.

Just Sheds can advise you about the height levels you will need. 

Finding the right door

You might be surprised to hear that when you are looking for a good shed door, roller blinds need to be purchased at a much greater height than the shed itself.

Always give yourself at least 300 to 500 millimetres extra when making your roller door purchase.

Take advice from the experts

When you want to make sure that you are looking at the best sheds for your caravan, you need to speak to Just Sheds.

Whether it is both advice such as storing your van slightly to the left in your shed, so that you have room to open the driver’s door, or plans for an entirely new build, we are here to help.
