Things to consider when choosing a motorhome

Travelling in a motorhome can certainly make for a unique and interesting holiday. It’s a pleasant change to camping and a cheaper alternative to hotel accommodation. It essentially allows you to take the comforts of your home on the road with you. However, when it comes to finding motorhome hire, there are so many options to choose from. From sizes to floorplans and accessories, how do you know which motorhome is right for your trip?

One important consideration to make is the overall size of the vehicle. Of course, depending on your driving license, there are limits to the weight that you can legally drive and you also need to have a vehicle that you will feel comfortable driving. Don’t forget that larger motorhomes will require more fuel, potentially adding to your expenses.

You also need to think about how much living space you will require, and whether there is enough room for you and your travelling companions (if you’re taking any) to comfortably sleep and relax inside your vehicle. Sleeping facilities are often indicated by the berth of the motorhome, with higher berths being able to host more people. If you plan on bringing along friends or family, then you may need to choose a caravan of a higher berth. Safety is crucial when travelling, so you also need to ensure that there are enough belted seats for the occupants of the vehicle. If you’re taking a lot of equipment or items with you, make sure the vehicle offers enough storage space.

If you’re travelling off the beaten track and into rural areas, you need to have a motorhome that is capable of handling more rugged roads. Depending on where you are travelling, you may need a caravan that is more insulated, particularly in colder areas where the insulation can help to protect the water system.
