Motorhome Hire Checklist – Don’t Forget…

Motorhome holidays can be great – but like any holiday, it pays to make sure you’ve got everything before you leave!

Likewise, when you arrive at your campsite it is important to find a good pitch – one that’s right for you. All pitches are different and one person’s preference is another’s nightmare. And some pitches are just bad for everyone and should be avoided!

Departure Checklist

Motorhomes are designed to be self-contained, but what about when you want to sit outside your motorhome?

Consider taking:

  • Folding table and deckchairs
  • Insect repellent candle
  • Picnic rug
  • Sunglasses
  • Travel mugs
  • Portable / disposable barbeque

At the Campsite

You’ve made it to your first campsite and you are ready to find a pitch. What do you look for?

  • Do you want to be near the toilet block – they can be noisy (if you aren’t planning to use it much, why be near it?)
  • Are you about to park under a tree that drops sap – avoid this, cleaning it off is a nightmare and your hire company might penalise you if you don’t
  • Is the pitch you are looking at level – if not can it be levelled with levelling wedges?
  • If you don’t have levelling wedges, find the flattest pitch possible – cooking and sleeping on a slope is a pain
  • Do you need electric hookup – make sure you chosen pitch has it. Many campsites have both electric and non-electric pitches (expect to pay extra for electric hookup)

Keep these things in mind and you should be set for a fantastic motorhome holiday. Happy travels.
