Some caravanners will argue that you're not truly making the most of your tourer unless you take it overseas, but towing on the continent can be a challenge.

Apart from simply driving on the other side of the road, there are a plethora of specific regional rules and regulations that you need to make sure you aren't breaking.

In this video, CaravanTimes meets Kat Woodhead, insurance expert at Simple Caravan Insurance, to take a closer look into this potentially thorny issue.

She explains the key things that you need to remember, as well offering some handy tips including topping up on Calor gas before you board the ferry.

Thanks to Old Hall Touring Park and Kenmore Caravans for their help with this video.
