So you’ve pretty much done it all, you say. You’ve stayed in some of the most up-market and illustrious hotels in the world – the kinds of places where you’d probably be within your rights filing a complaint if your room didn’t feature its own crystal chandelier – and you’ve also camped wild on windswept, rugged mountain slopes.
Maybe you’ve even packed up a van, signed up for one sure insurance, and done a cross-country road trip with some of your friends.
But, unless you’ve taken a motorhome out on the open road and used it during one of your vacations, you’ve still got a bit of learning left to do.
Here are a few of the benefits of taking a well-kitted out motorhome with you on your next journey.
It allows you to take luxury on the road with you, wherever you go
There’s a certain charm to doing things the minimalist way, and to sleeping rough with only the bare essentials required to survive, or else, with staying in hostel dormitories across the land and meeting new people as you go.
But there’s also a certain charm to having your own space, enjoying a predictable level of comfort, and going to sleep in your own bed every night.
With a motorhome, you can take luxury with you on the road, wherever you go. Maybe one day you’ll be camped beside some fields in the French countryside, and maybe the next, you’ll be parked in a tourist-laden campsite on the outskirts of a major party city.
Whatever the case may be, you’ll be enclosed in your own four walls, have your own bed, your own stack of book, and whatever other amenities your motorhome happens to have to hand.
It grants you a great deal of flexibility in planning your holiday
Planning the ideal holiday isn’t always easy. Often, there are some pretty irritating choices to be made between a wide range of desirable options, and a lot of work required in order to find accommodation where you want it, in the right kind of price range.
If you want to see multiple locations in the same country, organising transportation can be no less tricky.
A motorhome grants you a great deal of flexibility in planning your holiday. It allows you to set up and sleep wherever you’re legally allowed (and where amenities allow), whether that be a parking lot, an open field, or a developed campsite.
Furthermore, you can get up and drive whenever you feel you’ve lingered long enough, or that there’s something better to see over the horizon.
Storage space is unlikely to be a problem
One of the main issues with travelling light, is that you never really have a lot of storage space available. This limits both the number of things you can take with you on your trip, and the number of things you can bring back.
With a motorhome, you’re unlikely to find storage space to be an issue, unless you really go wild.
The benefits of this are obvious. You can bring that stack of books, that bag of snacks, that extra pillow, and that second pair of shoes with you.
And you can take home those trinkets that catch your eye during the trip.
