Regardless of if you are hiring a motorhome for a weekend break or thinking about buying your own motorhome, there are some things you should think about. You need to be happy and comfortable with the size of the motorhome you are driving. If you intend to be in your motorhome for more than just sleeping and the odd meal, you need to make sure that the living and sleeping space is not too cramped for the number of people sharing the precious space.
Here are a couple of points you should think about:
- How comfortable are you when you are sleeping? For example.. you need to consider whether you will be comfortable with an overcab bed
- Small motorhomes will have only limited storage space; not so good if you plan to take your motorhome away for lengthy periods
Although motorhomes are easy to drive, a large vehicle might be intimidating for some drivers. In some areas of Britain country lanes can be extremely narrow and may be very difficult for motorhomes. So do think about the kind of roads you are intending to drive on.
The level of equipment provided in hire / rental motorhomes varies massively and it really is just down to personal preference. Some people will prefer to pitch at sites that have excellent facilities including a restaurant and shower facilities, while others will crave the freedom of wild camping and being totally self sufficient.
Most modern motorhomes come with a high level of home comforts, so there’s no need to rough it at all. Having an oven, fridge, television, sound system, shower, toilet, blown-air heating and fitted fresh and waste water tanks are all standard features in the modern motorhome.
