Teachers are the most likely of all professions to own a caravan, a new study has revealed.
Insurance database manager The Trading Floor analysed information about 8.8 million motorists in the UK, comparing their occupation and vehicle ownership to come up with the top ten jobs of caravan owners.
Perhaps surprisingly teachers came out on top; with engineers, company directors, police officers and civil servants making up the rest of the top five.
The Trading Floor's managing director Chris McDonald said that the results showed just how popular caravan holidays are with a diverse range of people.
"There are many stereotypes associated with caravan owners but our figures reveal that there is a real cross section of people who have fallen for the charms of caravan ownership," he said.
Around two million caravans go touring around the UK every summer and, while many caravanners are retired, the professions of those still working shows that the unlimited range of different holidays on offer makes the pastime popular with all kinds of people.
The rest of the top ten was made up of nurses, builders, factory workers, sales assistants and mechanics.
