Here are some of our Frequently Asked Questions:
Compact campervans or larger van conversions are usually adapted from small or larger panel vans. They’re versatile, easy to park, and store also great for supporting active hobbies or for holidays and festivals.
Coachbuilt motorhomes have a caravan-like body built onto a chassis cab. They tend to have more space and may have better insulation for all-year-round use.
Top of the range A-class motorhomes have a full coach-built body (no separate cab) and tend to be equipped to a high specification. They’re ideal for the longest trips when you really do want to travel in style.
It can be hard to know what’s going to be best for you, come and visit our showroom to see our great selection of different motorhomes.
Do I need a special driving licence?
In general, most drivers can drive most sizes of motorhomes on a standard car driving licence. This includes motorhomes of up to 7500kg.
However, a limit of 3500kg applies to drivers aged over 70, or a driver licensed since 1 January 1997, unless a medical test or additional test respectively is passed. The vast majority of motorhomes are not over 3500kg, but double check if looking at larger models.
Are there any special requirements when choosing a pitch?
Hardstanding pitches are more suitable for motorhomes, but if using grass then check the ground before you drive on to it, by digging in your heel. Be aware that some campsites may have temporary or permanent restrictions on motorhomes, so it is best to check when you book that they will allow your vehicle on site.
Not all pitches on all sites will be suitable for all vehicles in all weather.
