1. Motorhomes can be used for daytrips and evening trips
2. You can have everything ready before leaving. Water, Toilet, Heat
3. You would be surprised where you can ge a motorhome. We have been to the Western Isles of Scotland/Narrow roads in Cornwall etc.
4. The majority of owners keep their vans at home. So you cam load and prepare at leisure.
5. If your car is being serviced you still have the van.
6. Unlike caravans you can camp in areas with no water/toilet etc as you have everything.
7. You are more likely to camp in the middle of areas with amazing beauty in a motorhome. We camped up in the mountains on the isle of Harris and next to a beach on Mull.
8 Motorhomers talk to each other on sites and about, caravanners can be a bit snotty and spend all day polishing the Volvo
This is one of the most helpful pointer lists I have read so far. Thanks for posting.

jocaz Hi we are new to this site. We returned caravaning this year buying a 2nd hand Swift Conquerer, and have just returned from 4 weeks in Wester Ross, I agree a MH is better for European touring and the Uk favours caravans. We were on Inverewe CCC club for 3 weeks 85/90 % of the campers were in MHs, at times it felt we were at an Autocruise meet. Since returning home, we have decided to sell up and go touring for 2-3 years. An MH with an MX5 on tow is our ideal what is offputting is the cost, an MH equivellent to our caravan would cost around 40/50k and lose value after that, so we are undecided, its probable we will stick with the van for a while. Another problem is the short sighted policies of both the CCC & CC in that they will happily sell a winter pitch then insist you move off site completely every 21/28 days, that means awning down and vehicle off site. Its a tough descison MH or VAN and there are clear advantages and disadvantages to both. We cant make our minds up but financially the van wins.

Regards to all

CliveMott "You could always rent a Caravan for a week as well"

Better make sure the motorhome you hire has a tow bar then. Best of both worlds perhaps? Or perhaps not?

Doing nothing however is not an option, you only pass this way once.

SaddleTramp There are probably more touring caravan rental firms than Motor Home Hire Firms.



And you can Buy a tent for £15
