Five Businesses You Can Run from A Caravan Trailer

You're plagued with wanderlust and want to explore the country, but you need a job to support you along the way. Luckily, there are many jobs you can take on the road, and with the right caravan trailer, you can essentially haul your business behind your caravan.

Here are five businesses you can run from a caravan trailer

Food Stand

Whether you make the best waffles in the world, amazing chips or world-class hotdogs, you can easily pull a food trailer behind your caravan. When planning your travel itinerary, plan to stop at lots of fairs or contact cities to see if you can get permits to sell on their sidewalks or beaches for a few weeks.

Creams and Potions Shop

Just as a trailer can be converted into a food truck, you can convert a trailer into a small shop for creams and potions. You can create a tiny space into which people can walk to browse through your merchandise. Alternatively, you can have displays visible in the trailer and on outside shelves, and people can place their orders through a large window.

If you love to make your own lotions and creams, you can craft your own inventory. Otherwise, you can join a multi-level-marketing company and peddle their wares. Ideally, you want to book yourself into bridal shows, expos and other events as you travel to attract customers.


If you already have a telecommuting job, you can actually pull your very own office on a trailer behind your caravan. For example, if you have a large caravan, you can pull a small pop-up trailer. When you get to your location, your family can hang out in the caravan while you set up the pop-up trailer to work.

For internet service, you can get a caravan antenna that connects you to satellite internet service or you can use your mobile phone as a "hotspot".

Professional Racing Business

If you love speed, consider turning it into a career as a BMX racer, a race car driver, a motorcycle racer or a similar pursuit. You can haul your racing equipment in the caravan trailer, and you can schedule your journey around races and competitions.

Crafting Company

If you love to knit or craft items, you can turn that into a business. Convert your caravan trailer into a trailer that works as a sales stand, but also ensure you have room to work on new creations in there.

You can take the trailer to Renaissance festivals, art fairs and anywhere else people buy crafts, but you can also make items to sell online. For more information, contact a business such as Carac Trailers.
