Finding the Right Motorhome for Your Family

Finding the right motorhome that suits you and your family is important; after all, it’s a big decision to invest in a motorhome, and you want to make sure it’s perfect. With so much choice and different models of motorhome available, it can be difficult to know where to start. So, here at Premier Motorhomes, we want to help you make the right choice with your next motorhome. If you’re hoping to find the right motorhome for your family to enjoy for years to come, follow our guide to help you on your search.

What size family do you have?

Before you start shopping for a new motorhome, take note first of how big your family is; or who you’re intending to take with you on your motorhome holidays! This will have a direct impact on the type of motorhome you should be on the lookout for. From van conversions to low profile coach-built motorhomes, there is a motorhome for any family dynamic.

Likewise, your holiday can be dramatically different depending on how many children you’re hoping to take with you, and how old they are. Teenagers might want a little more privacy, while younger children may require larger storage options for all their extra things!

Depending on how many family members you’re hoping to take with you on your next adventure, you may want to consider the size of the motorhome and even the layout so that everyone can enjoy themselves to the fullest!

What type of holidays are you going on?

To choose the most suitable motorhome for your upcoming travels, you should decide where you’re going and what you’re going to do when you get there. The type of trip you choose can dictate the type or size of motorhome too.

For example, a long holiday of anywhere between 2 weeks to a month may mean you need more space, while short romantic getaways might lend themselves to a smaller and compact vehicle. Consider whether you will be going on more summer holidays, or winter ones; this is so you can make sure your chosen motorhome has all the facilities you’ll need.

Basic or luxury?

This may depend entirely on your personal preferences and just how much you want a home away from home. If you’re only using your motorhome for long weekends every now and again, you can probably get away without piling your motorhome full of home comforts; and it’ll save you overloading your vehicle too!

However, many motorhome owners love having their favourite things with them on the road and like recreating their home when they’re away. Think about the specifics; how much cooking do you plan on doing? Do you need entertainment systems to keep everyone in good spirits?

New or used?

Another difficult decision to make when it comes to your motorhome is whether you buy a brand new one or a used one. There are pros and cons to both options. Buying a used motorhome means saving money and is a great option for a first-time buyer. Buying a new motorhome can mean that it comes with the latest gadgets and a modern spec!
