What to pack/ How to prepare

Knowing what to pack Is key to a motorhome holiday. Although they are spacious you do not want your holiday to be cluttered and have nowhere to store your belongings.  We can help you plan ahead if you need such things as bikes, hairdryers, golf clubs, bedding packs, car seats, airport transfers and a route to travel on. We encourage all customers to book these in advance as they are subject to availability especially during peak times.

Make a list, what do you really need for your motorhome holiday. We would suggest you pack as lightly as you can to make the whole process less stressful and  time consuming. This in turn means you spend more time enjoying your holiday than unpacking.  If you have any bulky items you require to bring such as wheelchairs, a buggy or sporting equipment please don’t hesitate to get in touch to ensure there is somewhere to store this as all of our motorhomes have different layouts and garages.
