Default Where to find caravans?

Hope this is not the wrong forum —*wondering how/where people find caravans in the U.S. Is there a web page with these caravans listed/organized?

Are you from Europe? In the US, we don't use the term "caravan." We have RVs... and they can be 5th Wheels, travel trailers, Truck campers, Class A (Motorhomes), Class B (van conversions) or Class C.

You might want to search by what type you are looking for. I would start with RV Trader.

I thought what was being referred to was a "Caravan" in the sense of a group of RV's travelling together - no?

I'm not sure what JCalhoun is referring to. Traveling together is what I thought caravan is. Most people don't caravan or travel together but do meet up at rallys, socials, or whatever you may call it usually in campgrounds. Caravaning might be more popular like going to Alaska on the Alaska Highway. There are organizations and clubs that lead them but I don't know if it is done as a business.

There are commercial caravan companies for Mexico and Alaska. You can get a job being a “wagonmaster” for a group.

You are correct — I am in the U.S. — wondering how people find groups of RVs traveling together.

The Alaska tours were longer and involved driving miles and multiple campgrounds but many of the Lower 48 tours seem to be what I think are rallies centered around one campground with organized activities and I assume people were being bussed to events because their were no driving miles listed for the ones I checked.

I don't know if I would enjoy guided caravan tours in an RV. I've gone on cruise ships and will probably go on a European river cruise soon. Last year I went to Australia on a guided trip. I went on a self-planned England and Wales 1500 mile two week trip in a rented car. I've gone on custom planned but guided passenger van trips in Peru, Bolivia and the Dominican Republic. Those all haven't been in an RV. If I went on an RV trip outside of North America I would think I would go on a RV rental trip like Avanti did in Iceland.

We went to Alaska for a two month duration much like those guided tour itineraries but we just had a general itinerary and no reservations or had to be someplace on a certain date. Our itinerary changed often especially on our return trip going On Top of the Word highway to Dawson, Yukon and coming down the Cassiar Highway in British Columbia instead of backtracking all the way down to Alaska Highway. All the pre-planning did not reveal those routes but talking to people in the campgrounds changed our plans.

I do go to rallies, socials and fest in our RV. We have three planned in April and May this year in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
