Why did we start the Motorhome Holiday Club?
Motorhome holidays are undoubtedly an increasing trend but the industry is changing. Big price increases are now a reality due to supply chain economics, a changing political climate and road tax hikes. All these factors result in increased expense for motorhome ownership.
Motorhomes often present poor value for money based on the amount of time they are commonly used. They spend lots of time parked up or stored whilst depreciating and needing maintenance, all of which costs money. They are complex vehicles that need looking after. This is often perceived as a hassle associated with ownership: cleaning, defect rectification, engine servicing, habitation checks, manufacturer recalls etc. all take time and effort to organise.
But there is another way.
Motorhome holidays and adventures are a great way to improve your quality of life and we are passionate about helping you discover this great way to spend your leisure time. Often seen as a retirement activity, it is a growing choice of holiday for younger people who want to go exploring or to enjoy outdoor activities such as surfing, wind surfing, mountain biking or motocross.
The motorhome market is flooded with numerous different layouts and sizes of vehicles. Different motorhomes may be more suited for some trips, depending on where you are going and who you are going with. A family weekend or a two-week tour of Scotland with just the two of you – each trip could benefit from a different number of beds, a bigger or smaller vehicle, more double beds, more single beds, more storage for bikes etc. etc.
More affordable than sailing, easier than mountaineering, more comfortable than camping and more flexible than hotels.
It is well documented that the sharing economy is very much here to stay. The idea that you ‘own’ the item you want to experience is no longer considered the ‘norm.’ An increasing number of people rent their homes, rent their phones and cars through a lease plan or what has been called a PCP. The idea is that it is yours for a period and at the end you return it. We want to bring that idea to motorhoming and make motorhome holidays easy and accessible.
Many people do not realise you can rent or hire a motorhome, although it is a growing trend. But we want to create more than just a motorhome hire business. This is a club where you will get many benefits from being a member.
