Default Spain Living in a caravan?

Is it possible to move to Spain and live in a caravan on a site all year rather than buy a property? If So what is involved plenty of sites telling me what to do to buy a house but very few regarding living in a caravan.

There's bound to be some sort of caravanners society or association. Have a google on that and see if it throws up anything.

There are a couple of places down on the costa del sol. My dentist's nurse is currently living in one. One is in Calhonda, and I think there is one near Nerja. So a few floating around

Here's a site with a big blurb on Spain. Knowing nothing about caravans I don't know how useful it would be, but they seem like the sort of chaps who'd know.

Have a look at www.vayacamping.net there you will see a good selection of sites with prices, whether they are open all year etc.
Best of luck.

We went to live in spain for 12 months in 2003 and after renting for a few months looked into living in a caravan as much cheaper we were told. we were in benidorm area at the time and there are 6 sites there. really expensive but got told of one in almeria(mojaca area). anyway drove 3 hrs to get there and fell for place and prices. 36 foot by 13 foot wide luxury one was 30k and last 4 ever we were told. site fees 2k per year and usual gas,elec,water to pay ontop.
first month we loved it but then the heat. boy talk about living in a tinned can,no respite from heat in or outside caravan. couldnt sleep,couldnt cook,just toooooooo hot. worst thing is when u want to sell they take between 10-15% so you end up losing loads , but no one tells you this at begginning
