Start your next adventure with confidence
The advantages of touring are many. Goodbye to struggling against the weather to put up a tent, trying to catch some ZZZs on a camping mat inside a sleeping bag, and sharing bathrooms at campsites; say hello to indoor creature comforts, protection from the heaviest storms, and greater freedom. Whether you’re driving a motorhome or towing a caravan, you have the ability to pick up and go without a fuss, getting on the road with minimal preparation — and setting yourself down at a wide range of suitable locations across the UK. It’s a great way to transport family and even pets.
There are skills involved in owning vacation vehicles, so be prepared for a learning curve. If you’re new to owning and driving a motorhome or caravan, it’s worth considering investing in a training course to make sure you know the ins and outs of your vehicle. The Caravan and Motorhome Club runs expert training courses to help you with the tips and tricks of your holiday-on-wheels. You can also check out our top tips for first-time motorhome trips - a great introduction into the world of motorhoming.
The practical caravan taster course includes lessons on how to hitch it properly behind your car, while the motorhome taster course focuses on the specifics of parking and moving your motorhome in the safest, most efficient way possible. Caravan owners with a little more experience can also try the caravan manoeuvring course, particularly for help with reversing.
If you aren’t quite sure if touring is for you, perhaps consider hiring a motorhome to test the waters?
With those skills under your belt, you can head off to new horizons with confidence.
