Considering turning your dream of motorhome life into a reality? There are so many reasons to own a motorhome, these are our top fifteen.
Fifteen Top Reasons to Choose Motorhome Ownership
225,000 people in the UK own motorhomes. Motorhome ownership in the UK is sky-rocketing with current sales at an all time high as people turn their dream of the motorhome lifestyle into reality. If you’re still pondering whether it’s right for you, read on…
You can go wherever you want, whenever you want. If you fancy a road trip to chase the sun or try some motorhome skiing. If the idea of being beholden to no-one appeals, then this is the life for you.
Want to spear fish in Greece, climb in the Dolomites or kite-surf in Spain? When you travel in a motor home the world is yours for the taking, you just have to go and get it!
Live like a local wherever you are and dive headfirst into the rhythms of your new place. Slow travel and immerse yourself in different cultures and views instead of just passing through.
When the world is your back yard, you will inevitably be more active, which will produce more endorphins etc etc…you know the drill. Van life is all about being outdoors, or at least under your awning!
Campervan life is a chance to live life more simply. Lack of space hones your choices of what you want and need, whether for life or a holiday. When you’re out there seeing the world, possessions don’t seem to matter as much…
In your motorhome life, you will be surrounded by like-minded souls; swapping stories and information is a way of life in the motorhome community. Fellow motorhomers help each other out, share tools, equipment and tips. There are great forums online (including ours, obviously the best!) where you can find a wealth of information and support.
It’s easy to meet new people, on a site or wild camping…people on the next pitch or at the service point. You’ll meet people like you, who ‘get’ you and think about things in the same way, and you’ll make friends for life.
Motorhome living provides opportunity to try new things and be adventurous no matter what your comfort zone will come with every new country and stop-over. Whether it’s new food or hiking a huge mountain, try something different.
OK, your motorhome is a gas guzzler, but if you’ve lived in one for even a couple of weeks you will understand much more about water conservation and managing water and power usage far more than you ever would just flicking a switch or turning a tap at home.
You have so many choices when you motorhome travel; campsites, aires, free and wild camping all at your fingertips and if you’re in Europe, times ten!
You're Always at Home
Your vehicle really is your home on wheels, a home from home you are familiar with but can take anywhere…even better than a holiday home!
After your initial outlay and ongoing costs such as motorhome insurance and road tax, camper van life can be surprisingly cheap. You can cook as you would at home, wild camp or stay in aires for very little money, all in the most incredible surroundings which you choose.
No Housework Required
You’ll start by wanting to clean twice a week and have a travel iron at all times. After a few weeks the iron will go in the bin and you’ll swipe a cloth around occasionally because you’ll know that motorhome life is for living!
Whether you holiday or live in your motorhome, it will be a stress-free zone. There is something about this way of life that gets under your skin and forces you to relax and slow-down.
If you’re looking to escape the everyday drudgery of life, then travelling and living in a motorhome is for you. Motorhome ownership gives you the ability to get away from it all…whether that’s for a holiday or a full time motorhome life for a year or longer.
