At Caravan Helper, most of our posts, since the site was established, have revolved around caravanning in and around the UK. However, we recently published a post about caravan sites in Spain open all year and that pushed us to start not only focus on domestic caravan holidays and related subjects. As well as general posts about travelling abroad, we also wanted to take the opportunity to discuss caravan storage abroad. Now caravan storage is essential to owners, as it gives them a safe place to store their vehicle when it’s not in use.
Whether you’ve read the article about caravan storage in France yet or not, it’s not hard to see possible benefits of storing a touring vehicle on a site in Spain. You wouldn’t need to tow your vehicle back and forth from the UK each time you wanted to explore Spain. Furthermore, if you plan on visiting both France and Spain, you could choose a storage site that’s close to both and use that as a base for all your holidays. With the caravan storage in France post, we also have the caravan storage in Essex and Kent pages and a general post about costs.
In the following post we look at some of the best caravan storage sites in Spain.
