Campervans, motorhomes, and caravans provide more flexibility than any other form of travel.

The mainstay, however, is using them locally for domestic road trips with friends and family that allow you to see what you want, when you want.

Innovation and Availability

There are so many different types of caravans or motorhomes available that the choice itself will be challenging to say the least.

You should take your time to choose the right option for you, however; and there should be no rush in making a decision that will affect family holidays for years to come.

Safety and security

For many, the caravan provides an increased sense of safety and security. It provides a form of travel wherein you don’t have to mix or interact with others and can maintain a safe social distance from other people throughout the trip. Furthermore, by staying in registered and secure camping environments and sticking to known routes it is a safe and secure way to see the world.
