Hiring an RV, a camper van, a dormobile or motorhome is a great way to holiday and see the UK at the same time. They offer a flexible solution to your transport and accommodation needs, whilst at the same time allowing you the freedom to decide where you need to go next.
A motor home truly is a “home from home”, with all the conveniences you have at home and the benefit of mobility. We’ll take a closer look at what facilities a van should offer, so that you are more informed when you decide to rent or hire.
An essential component of a van is the meal preparation area. The kitchen should have a gas or electric cooking hob with two or three burners. There should be a refrigerator to keep milk and dairy products fresh.
A microwave is often considered a luxury item as you will want mains voltage for it to work. To get mains voltage you will want to hook up at a dedicated campsite facility. The majority vans have an electrical hook up point. All camper vans should come with a dual battery system. One for the van lighting and other low power uses and that’s used for the engine.
Internet access, cable television and electrical supply are just a few of the home comforts found at dedicated camper sites throughout the UK. The increase in camper van hire within the UK is fueling the growth of services available at the camping grounds.
Many people, who look to hiring camper vans as the perfect get-away, prefer to stay in less developed rural areas or in camper sites with only basic facilities such as toilets and washrooms.
Company, an international leader on the recreational vehicle market, however in UK, you’ll find other well-represented companies such as Ford, Bedford or Fiat that were among the first to appeal to the public. Every year, VW organizes the Vanfest, held in Malvern.
The majority of the participants offer fine examples of four-wheeled accommodation standards. If you’ve got a van and want to buy something for it, then this is the place to go.
Choosing the correct camper van very much depends on whether it is a family trip or not. The age of the children is also very important, since there are family camper vans with special facilities for such circumstances. Most family camper vans include one large double bed and two smaller single ones, or there is also the option of one double bed and a small bed in the van roof space.
Such details you need to be discussed with the van rental company you choose. Remember that UK law is very strict about child car travelling, and since most of vans don’t have children seats as standard, it is the driver’s responsibility to make sure they’re carried in a legal manner.
