Motorhome Features

The features included within a motorhome are also important to consider when purchasing - you may be more concerned with sleeping space rather than cooking space or vice versa.

Here's our quick overview of the key features:

 

Sleeping Space

The sleeping space depends on the type of vehicle. Each sleeping space is called a berth which can be fixed or convertible, depending on the type of vehicle.

 

Kitchen Facilities

These can vary in each type of motorhome but a 'kitchenette' will typically include a stove-top, a sink, grill and an oven in most cases. Some advance models may also have a microwave but these are generally more expensive.

 

Washroom Facilities

Again, features here can vary depending on the size and type of the motorhome. Many of the larger models have a washroom with a cassette toilet, shower and a basin. In more recent models, the washroom is usually accessible from the outside to make the cleaning easier, along with a separate shower cubicle.

 

Driving/Cab Area

The cab area has the driver and passenger seat which, in some vehicles is convertible and can be made a part of the lounge or the main residence area.

 

Summary

With so many different features and options available, it can be overwhelming when searching for your new motorhome. Make a list of what's important to you and you'll be sure to find the right vehicle for your needs.

Remember a motorhome is a roadworthy vehicle so whichever option you choose - it is a legal requirement to have motorhome insurance. It is a home away from home, after all! Click here to read more, or speak to a member of our friendly team today on 01865 818 341.
