How To Keep Your Caravan Cool In The Summer

Share post:

Owning a caravan is great fun. Going on holiday in your caravan during the summer is a wonderful time. However, staying cool in your caravan can often be a challenge and a deeply uncomfortable experience.

When the summer heat really sets in, especially during the evenings, it can be hard to try and keep static caravans cool. Thankfully, there are a couple of things that you can do to make sure that your caravan stays relatively cool, so let’s take a quick look.

Invest in double-glazed windows

Double glazing as a modern convenience that can help you stay cool during the summer. You might assume the double glazing is designed to trap heat, but it also helps to keep it out.

Thankfully, double glazing is not difficult to install in the caravan and is a good way to raise its value at the same time. However, in this case, what it does most effectively is help to keep your caravan cooler.


Making sure that your static caravan stays cooler during the summer months can often be down to where you put it when you park up. Try and position your caravan in shady areas wherever possible, as this will help to lower the ambient temperature.

This won’t always be possible, as many people have exactly the same idea as you do, so it’s just a case of taking a look at what spaces are available when you arrive at the campsite.

Invest in fans and open up windows

If you want to be able to keep the caravan cooler during the summer months, then you need to make sure that you not only invest in some fans but also take the time to open up the windows and get a proper airflow going. The reason that caravans often get quite hot and stuffy is that there is not adequate airflow, which means that the warm air simply sits.

Furthermore, taking the time to invest in a handful of electric fans can make all the difference. Obviously, this is going to become quite expensive to run for an extended period, so you need to pick your time carefully, but buying a couple of fans is not a bad idea. It’s well worth it just to keep the temperature lower until you reach the nighttime when the caravan gets much cooler anyway.

Final thoughts

Keeping your caravan cool isn’t difficult. There are just a handful of strategies that you need to implement. At the end of the day, your caravan will get naturally cooler during the nighttime anyway. Once you get past 10 pm or so, the temperature begins to drop. The big problem is often getting to that time in the day.

It’s worth it to make solid investments into quality fans and double-glazed windows. These are good, long-term investments that will make sure your caravan stays cool during the summer and that you have a pleasant experience.
