If you are thinking about a motorhome hire / Rental holiday for the first time next summer, you might be a little apprehensive about driving a large motorhome. This is particularly true if you have only driven a car before. You don’t need to worry though, you soon get used to their size and their large truck like mirrors make maneuvering much easier than you could imagine. But just in case, here are a few tips for driving a motorhome.
- Allow extra room when you are turning tight corners, you can achieve this by lining up the rear wheels with the corner and then start turning, this allows for the extra length that you might not be used to.
- When you are reversing, it’s always wise to get your passenger to get out and give you a guide back. When you do this, tell them to make sure they stand where they can see the mirrors, because if they can’t see the mirrors – you can’t see them!
- Get into the habit of looking up so that you can avoid overhanging trees, buildings and bridges. This is especially true when you are maneuvering the motorhome into a pitch on a campsite also beware when pulling into laybys and car parks. Many campsite owners, especially abroad, grow trees around their plots to give shade, but sometimes the odd branch may still be low enough to damage the motorhome.
Overall, most people find their first motorhome hire experience a very enjoyable experience. Many customers report back about enjoying the high up driving position and find their cars a little claustrophobic when they get back into them at the end of their motorhome hire.
