RORO RV Shipping

RORO RV Shipping

Shipping an RV is no small undertaking and there are many challenges to the process, which goes double when you need an RV shipped to an overseas location. The bottom line is that if you need to ship an RV overseas, whether you’re importing or exporting, there is really only one option, which is RORO transport. If you’re unfamiliar, RORO stands for “roll on, roll off,” which refers to the method that RVs are loaded onto a transport ship. In simple terms, RORO means that the RV is driven onto the boat, stored in a designated cargo area for transport, and then driven off the boat once it arrives at a port nearest the destination.

To explain a little further, RORO transport doesn’t mean that the RV is simply parked on a cargo ship. It is firmly secured using a variety of different methods (usually depending on the size of the RV) before the ship departs. Once all the RVs, motor homes, and other types of campers are securely in place and safely locked down, then the ship goes from the departure part to the destination port before they are detached and driven off. If your RV is not operational, it can still be shipped in most cases, but will likely cost more since special equipment is needed to load and unload it.


A-1 Auto Transport has been shipping RVs and other types of vehicles around the world for more than 20 years. With a wealth of experience and a proven track record of reliable, professional service, you will not find a better option in the industry.

The Process of Shipping An RV Overseas

Before you start contacting companies to get an estimate for RV shipping, there are a couple things you should know about the process and how it works. These are the basic steps:

Make sure that your RV type and size are compatible with the shipping options offered by a company you’re considering. There may be limits based on size or other qualifications that could disqualify you from being able to ship with some companies so it’s important that you make sure it’s an option beforehand.

Shipping overseas does require some paperwork to be submitted along with your RV, which can vary based on the country you’re shipping to and from. At minimum, you’ll need proof of ownership and current insurance information in order to ship an RV. Equally important is the country you’re shipping to. If they have different regulations that apply to RVs, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with them so that you’re not caught off guard and unable to use it when it arrives.


In addition to vehicle regulations from different countries, you should also be aware that there are import taxes in some cases, which can drastically increase the total cost of importing or exporting an RV. While many countries have reciprocal agreements with the United States when it comes to imports/exports of vehicles for personal use, that is not always the case. An experienced overseas shipping company should have a good understanding of these requirements, or be able to direct you to the appropriate resources so that you can review the cost of shipping to a specific country on your own.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
