Some time ago I decided to buy a second-hand motorhome. I started looking for information and looking every day the major portals ads. After more than a year looking for, this is my experience.
I’ll start with my reasons. Taking a caravan and enjoying it. Why replace it with a motorhome?
The answer is simple. Because it allows me to do things I can not do now with my caravan.
For example a motorhome would allow me to spend the night en route more comfortably .
I still remember how bad we had last summer, sleeping in a service area, without light and heat to wink.
It could also maneuver more easily in campsites (when butt is almost impossible with the caravan).
And I could run a little (with the caravan I can not exceed 90) and drive more stable manner . The caravan crosswind is very dangerous.
Also you could make day trips : for example spend the day on the beach or in the mountains. And back at the end of the day without overnight (for example if we work the next day). For our family the day trips are common because my wife is a nurse and just have the full weekends.
The same would apply for the outputs of one night . With the caravan give a tremendous laziness. Having to find camping, maneuver the caravan camping, place the caravan on the plot (in summer is terrible), leveled, remove the gear, re-engage, re maneuver .. And of course nothing to mount the awning. For a day ever .. and for two time dependent.
But what really strikes me is to sleep outside the camp and make route. Camper authentic freedom. I like this site and here I stay: it is on the beach, in the mountains or in the city. absolute freedom.
Says another rookie that when you go motorhome you think about what you will see and not where you go to sleep as with the caravan.
Although naturally .. the motorhome has some disadvantages compared to the caravan:
If your goal is tourism and go to a camping you should know that you do not have another vehicle to move once there . So you can not mount the stall. We are far from that. Prepare the nest: mount tables, chairs, pergolas, kitchenette, etc etc. If we are in the campsite and want to make a Excursió n we have to collect it .
On the other hand if you ‘re not going to campsites young children do not go so well . Since one of the great advantages of campsites with young children is to go to the plot next door with their friends and leave us alone for a few hours.
Another drawback is that they have the disadvantages of a car: pay insurance, a tax and spend an ITV every year.
And of course has a much more expensive caravan maintenance : you have to change filters, oil, brake pads, batteries ( it takes at least two) and that discounting any faults.
Still I am determined to make myself with sooner or later. In fact … I’ve seen several.
In future articles I will tell you as being my search motorhome.
