‘This is a paid partnership with Ripe Insurance to promote their ‘How To Give Your Caravan a Makeover’ guide and competition.
It’s that time again folks! Summertime is underway and with Covid travel restrictions still very much in place, a lot of us are holidaying in the UK. For those of us lucky enough to own a little house on wheels, now is the perfect time to spruce it up and give your caravan a makeover.

DIY Caravan Makeovers
I have been writing about our caravan renovations, here on the blog, for the last six years, and shared so many posts about my caravan makeover projects.
The guide covers all kind of things; from DIY tips, to cheap and easy ways to give your caravan a new look, just by accessorising.
Who Are Ripe Insurance?
With over 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry, Ripe know their stuff about insurance.
They cover static caravans that are up to 20 years old and tourers that are up to 15 years old*, delivering excellent insurance at great value.
They understand just what it means to be a caravanner, and their approach is simple and refreshing.
They offer unpackaged insurance, so you can pick and choose the elements you need. Therefore, you won’t ever pay for cover that’s not essential to your needs.
Whether you’re just looking for an initial quote for a price comparison — or you’re looking to actually buy insurance — Ripe have ditched the jargon and flannel.
Their website makes it super easy to understand exactly what you’re getting for your money – getting insurance for your caravan has never been easier.
More Than Just Caravans!
Best of all, Ripe doesn’t just cover caravan insurance.
They’re a lifestyle insurer; protecting people’s passions is what they do.
They cover all sorts of things, from golfing equipment and boats to cameras and bikes.
This is brilliant if you’re going away in the van and taking your bikes with you, taking your paddleboards on your next trip, or planning on squeezing in a few rounds of golf while you’re camping.
With Ripe’s cover, you can enjoy your trip knowing that your assets are safe and protected.
Ripe’s Essential Caravan Makeover Guide
Ripe realise that whilst an Englishman’s home is his castle, a Brit’s caravan is his home-from-home.
There are so many things we can do, to turn these bland and boring tin boxes into a little sanctuary; and make the space personal and unique.
Ripe (with a little help from yours truly) have created an exclusive and essential, 15 page caravan guide; sharing all kinds of tips and tricks to help turn your caravan into a comfy, cosy little house on wheels.
Covering all sorts of aspects of practical caravan renovation — including walls, floors and storage — the ‘Essential Caravan Makeover Guide’ takes you through choosing your theme and where to find design inspiration.
Right through to carrying out your DIY ideas.
