It is most probably due to a faulty connection either in the +ve or earth on that lamp or the feed to it.Can you rule out the car wiring with a trailer board/another caravan etc?Check the rear light and the connections in the 12 N plug for starters.

As stated by JohnG it is probably a faulty or dirty connection not making a proper earth. Check the sockets on both the car and caravan and also take the offending rear light unit apart. Clean up all terminals with a fine emery paper and make sure that a good clean connection is available at all times. Good luck
