Motorhome is one of the popular kinds of rental in the UK, and everyone should know when considering a motorhome rental. Following these simple tips will make your motor home rental more enjoyable and safer for everyone involved.
1. Picking up the Motor Home
Always pick up the motor home after getting a good night’s sleep. Generally, this is not a problem for locals, but if you are flying in, then sleep at a hotel before picking up the motor home. A good night’s sleep will allow you to get used to driving the new vehicle before experiencing any fatigue. This one tip will help ensure the safety of all those riding in the motor home.
2. Pre-Book Your Motor Home
This is especially true for the holiday season. The better motor homes get rented out fast and pre-booking ensures you get what you want. Waiting till the last minute may cost you added amenities that you really don’t want to go without. Also, the sooner you book, the better your chance of getting a good deal.
3. Charging the Batteries
While it is not necessary to go to a campground every night, it is recommended to go at least every three nights. This will make sure your battery stays fully charged throughout the trip. It also gives you a chance to empty the toilet and refill the fresh water supply. In between campgrounds you can normally camp anywhere that does not have a “No Camping” sign or a “No Parking Overnight” sign.
4. Camping Laws
Always check with the rental company when planning your holiday. There are some places where camping is restricted and the rental company will know where these places are. If the law says you cannot camp on the side of the road, you will need to know where camping is allowed. Many places can provide you with a map of designated camping sites for you to choose throughout your travel.
