Motorhome tips for newbies
We are always asked what should be considered when traveling with a camper. The United States and Canada are classic travel destinations where camper and travel go well together. The beautiful nature in the southwest, on the west coast or in the Rocky Mountains tempts you to be as close as possible. But also in Europe there are many regions and travel destinations that are well suited for motorhome trips. The rough coasts of Great Britain, the lakes of Scandinavia or the beaches on the Mediterranean always offer beautifully situated plotswhere you can enjoy the beauties of nature up close. And what better place to do it than in a motorhome, which you put on a campsite in the middle of the forest on a beautifully situated lake or with a view of the dramatic mountains.
For anyone new to the subject, there are questions: which motorhome is best for your type of travel? What size should or should it be so that you feel comfortable with it? How does a motorhome drive? How does parking work in larger cities? Where to find good and nicely located campsites? Which technical equipment should one buy, and why? How do you best park with such a vehicle? What do you have to consider at the campsites? What kind of service is available at the campsites? How mobile is the motorhome? Is it worth it to bring a bike to be mobile on the spot? Should I rent a motorhome or rather buy it? How much is a motorhome vacation? What are the prices compared to a trip with a rental car and hotel? What are the additional costs for motorhome travel to one?
Many of the questions that newbies may encounter are answered in travel guides specially written on the subject:
