What size motorhome should I get?

This will depend on a few factors, including your budget, your available parking space and what types of holidays you plan to take in your motorhome. It’s always a good idea to test drive any vehicle you’re considering so you can see if you feel comfortable driving it and if you’re happy with the available space inside.

Where can I park my motorhome?

You may be able to park it on the street outside your home, depending on whether it causes an obstruction or there are any bylaws that prevent you from keeping it there. This is of course something to check before you invest in a motorhome.

Where is the best place to buy a motorhome?

If you’re buying a used motorhome, as many first-time buyers do, then you can either buy from a dealer, an auction house or privately.

This is because when buying from an auction house or a private seller, you usually don’t get any kind of guarantee.

This depends on when you passed your driving test. If you passed your driving test before 1st January 1997 then you can drive a vehicle up to 7,500KG on a B+C1 licence. If you passed your test after this time then you’ll need to apply for a C1 licence to drive a vehicle over 3,500KG
