Why go camping when traveling by motorhome?

When you hit the road with an RV, it's quite easy to find RV service areas, but you usually can't stay very long. Thanks to the camping option, there is no longer a problem of duration: you book for the duration you want. You will be independent since your vehicle contains everything you need to live, but you will not be alone. You will be able to meet people if you wish. Another advantage is the many infrastructures, such as water and electricity, to which you can connect your motorhome.

What criteria should be checked before booking a campsite?

As with a classic vacation rental, before booking your motorhome pitch, remember to check that it offers everything you need. First thing, make sure that the campsite you are interested in has plenty of pitches for motorhomes, this is not always the case. Then, see if the setting suits your tastes with, for example, a view of the mountains, or a campsite with motorhome pitches at the edge of the water. Also see if it is possible to do your shopping on site, or if there are clubs for children.

The essential equipment of a motorhome campsite

When you stay at a campsite in a motorhome, you do not have the same needs as a holidaymaker in a mobile home or tent. For maximum comfort, choose a motorhome area with electricity, so you can have light and be able to plug in appliances. A water connection is also essential for washing, doing the dishes or using the toilet. Accessibility is also important, especially if you want to get around during your stay without having trouble maneuvering your vehicle. Finally, it can be hot in some areas during the day. To keep you busy, especially if you have children, you will appreciate a motorhome campsite with a swimming pool or water games.

What budget should you plan for when you go camping in a motorhome?

In addition to freedom, the strong point of motorhome holidays is their low cost. For the price of a motorhome pitch for the night, you can find establishments from 10 to 20 €. If you are looking for a bit more premium service, prices can be around €25-30 per night, which is still very affordable. You therefore pay much less than in a mobile home, for similar quality and comfort.

For your next motorhome trip, book a pitch at a campsite. You will benefit from freedom and comfort for a holiday that is sure to be a success.
