Caravaning is Quite Enticing… but meant for Outdoor Enthusiasts only…

  

India’s best Overland Truck – well equipped recreational vehicle (RV) with features of campervan, caravan and motorhome to explore rural Rajasthan in the area of Jaisalmer.

Caravaning has been one of the main activities for the outdoor enthusiasts, but with Corona Pandemic it has suddenly become favourite of everyone globally and the caravan building has never seen such a surge in demand. What we could not do to popularise it in India for 20 years, Corona has done it in 20 days! Now, we feel very happy that even a common Indian has become aware of the existence of caravans!

No doubt it’s the best way to be safe on holidays while Corona Pandemic is around as of now. It looks and sounds very glamorous but it has its own pros and cons, just like every rose has few thorns too, and thus it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. It’s for those who want to be on a quiet holiday away from the city lights and a shopping mall, if one can just manage to freshen up with sponging or stay without bath for few days! It’s a great fun for those who can use the bush in the morning if need be, not looking for a heated toilet seat fitted with a jet!

The main misconception is about the tariff of such holidays, most Indians being naïve about the caravan holidays think that it should be much cheaper than a hotel room. The bitter truth is that it’s way more expensive, as it needs quiet a bit of investment to convert a basic vehicle into a caravan and then to mobilise the infrastrucuture.

Indians as a majority are one of the most confused people about holidays and in general for everything. Caravan has almost all basic creature comforts but still its an outdoor life though with a soft touch of adventure. We love others pampering us on holidays – we want someone to make our bed, cook and wash dishes. And most holidays are mix of everything – adventure, shopping, exploratory, historical, outdoor, comfort, adventure, spiritual, all in one, etc. And at the end of it it’s not a well enjoyed holiday, rather all grumble about it as fatigue filled holidays and wish to be off from the office for few more days. And we love reading the blogs and follow them blindly as authority on travel and holidays and we unfold our holidays as per the advice of friends, try to please them by doing it as advised. Our holiday ends up not being what we envisage or plan.

Caravans are suitable for long holidays and good if it’s self driven, sadly everyone can’t drive bigger vehicles in India, And caravans are much bigger than cars which most Indians can’t handle. If a shorter holiday has to be enjoyed with caravan then make sure it’s circuit is smaller, otherwise one will waste most of the time on roads reaching destinations in the evening and being lost for parking and use it only to sleep, crash like a stone in bed. Caravans are NOT just for sleeping or driving as a transport for sightseeing, these are to enjoy locations.

Next biggest con is the shortage of space, everything smaller and cramped! Most Indians need hot shower everyday, our sincere advice for such people is either stay home or hire a cab and stay in hotels. If you can sponge yourself to get fresh and stay without bath for few days then you should think of caravaning. And it’s not meant for hot weather locations.

Ideally, one should be able to handle basic issues of the vehicle. And the caravan should be in top conditions always and it needs preventive maintenance as priority.

We at Green Dot Expeditions offer stay in the lap of nature to relax and unwind to rejuvenate where either its a waterbody (lake or river) or beautiful view of mountains or greens or wilderness like The Thar or secluded place like Kutch! The caravan makes you enjoy such places with basic comforts and one must spend maximum time at such places instead of travelling distances and reducing caravan only as a mode of transport and use it for the night.
