Staying overnight in a motorhome has never been so popular. There are approximately 125,000 motorhome owners, and the majority of these will be heading for the great outdoors this year, discovering new sights or visiting their favourite picturesque locations.
The greatest thing about a motorhome is that you’re not just buying one holiday. Once you’ve got one, you can take holidays all year round and spend as much or as little as you like doing it. Remember, when you take to the road in your motorhome, whichever area you decide to discover can be your home for the night.
Motorhomes are perfect for exploring the UK and overseas as they offer all of the comforts of home: well equipped kitchens, cooker, fridge, central heating, fitted showers, hot water, TV aerials, toilets, double-glazing and comfortable beds that are yours to return to each night.
Some motorhome owners head for adventurous holiday destinations all over the world, whilst others enjoy touring the UK. Wherever you decide to take your motorhome, you can enjoy the fast lifestyle near to a busy town one day and the picturesque beauty of a countryside retreat the next.
If you are new to driving a motorhome, or you’d like to brush up on your manoeuvring skills, then The Camping and Caravanning Club’s new Motorhome Manoeuvring Courses may be for you. They are full-day courses run by patient and professional driving instructors, and are open to both members and non-members alike – of course, you get a discount if you’re a member, which is not the only benefit of joining a Club like The Camping and Caravanning Club.
