The versatility and portability of used static caravans mean that they have multiple uses.  The different  makes, models, the different layouts and the many different features incorporated in each means that they have multiple uses.  Here are some of the main uses for them.

Used Static Caravans – Ideal For Self Build / Property & Building Projects

If you’re  carrying out building work on your home and you need some suitable on-site accommodation with all the necessary for you and your family for the duration of the project, a used static caravan is the ideal solution.  As well as offering all the home comforts (many have central heating and double glazing), they can be placed very close to the site of the building work, utilities are easy to connect (x1 electric cable, push-together plumbing for cold water in, and soil pipe to connect),  and they can be much less expensive than other options e.g. caravan rental.  For example, Ian Jams Caravans offers ‘Buy Back’ for caravans with a purchase price of £5,000+, and FREE delivery within 150 miles.  For example,  Buy Back enables you to get half the price of the caravan back in 6 months time – full details can be found at  This means that, ultimately, you can use more of your money for the project budget, and ensure that you are able to stay in a much better caravan for the duration of your project.

You can, of course, choose to sell the static caravan privately at the end of your self build project, and this highlights another benefit – having an asset that you can sell rather than just the sunk cost of renting.

You can choose from used static caravans with 1, 2, and 3 bedrooms.  Heating options include gas or electric fires, gas or electric cookers (some static caravans are all-electric), blown air heating or wall-mounted electric heaters, and gas central heating systems with traditional radiators.

Most bathrooms in static caravans have showers, although some models have baths. Kitchens in static caravans are often just as good as home kitchens with equally good appliances.  Bedrooms have plenty of wardrobe storage, and some have en-suite bathrooms.

All in all, used static caravans make ideal, cost-effective, highly practical accommodation solutions for self-build projects of all kinds.
