Join the new motorhome-travels blog and get you views and comments across.


In the meantime......


I was afforded the opportunity to redo the old website. It has now been redesigned to run on tablets, smart phones and old trad browsers with hopefully easier to view slideshows of photos from our lovely trip to Oz,NZ , California,Fiji,Samoa,Tonga & Hong Kong in 2007/8 where we hired a motorhome in 2008 and travelled most of the way up the east coast.


Please please let us know what you think, I am very happy with the new design but only you letting us know what you really think will see if we have achieved what we set out to do.


Leave us your views via the comments box below and we will get back to you.


The new website is HERE!

I was afforded the opportunity to redo the old website. It has now been redesigned to run on tablets, smart phones and old trad browsers with hopefully easier to view slideshows of photos with mobile slide feature from our lovely trip to Canada & 2 US states in 2010 where we hired a motorhome , which happened to be brand new and drove basically from one side to the other if you include our trip in 1999 to BC & vancouver Island.

Came across this wonderful pin board with links to all manner of useful and sometimes antique guides to Rv-ing. Just so much useful information, especially if you plan a motorhome anywhere in North America.

A motorhome is a type of self-propelled recreational vehicle or RV which offers living accommodation combined with a vehicle engine. The term motorhome is most commonly used in the UK, United States, Canada,Australia & NZ. They are used for motorhome-travels.


Features


A motorhome comprises sleeping accommodation for between 2 and 8 people. Each sleeping place is called a berth. Each berth is either fixed or converts from another part of the motorhome's interior. A kitchenette area will contain cooking equipment. The type of equipment included differs depending on the motorhome make and model, but generally a kitchenette has an oven, grill, hob and sink. More luxury models may also provide a microwave. A separate washroom will be housed in the motorhome. Each washroom will have a flushing cassette toilet, shower and basin. The cassette toilet sometimes swivels to provide extra room and can be accessed from outside the motorhome for easy emptying. More recent motorhomes will have a separate shower cubicle.


A motorhome will also have a cab area with a driver and passenger seat. These seats often swivel to become part of the living space. A dinette area provides a table and seating space typically used for eating meals. A lounge may also be included, consisting of either a u-shaped sofa located in the rear of the motorhome or a side lounge.


Ambiguity with RV and campervan


Motorhomes can be easily confused with American RVs and campervans. Their term Recreational Vehicle also refers to trailers and other types of leisure vehicle which can be towed or driven.


Campervans are typically smaller than motorhomes and are constructed differently. Whilst campervans are focussed with mobility and low cost, motorhomes have more emphasis on comfort. For example, campervans generally lack built-in toilets and showers, or a divide between the living compartment and the cab. Volkswagen Westfalia Campers are typical campervans.
