Top Questions about Motorhomes Answered

Viewed: 386  

Regardless of where you may find yourself, one of the most popular ways to get around and travel these days is in a motorhome. In the past, travellers would need to sink tens of thousands of dollars into purchasing a motorhome. But today, road warriors can now hire the perfect motorhome that suits their needs.


Understandably, a lot of people who are new to travelling in a motorhome have a lot of questions. Below, we have answered some of the top questions, which we are regularly asked, starting with:


What “Class” Of Motorhome Should I Hire?

Companies which offer motorhome hire in the Gold Coast will likely have three different classes of motorhomes available:


  • Class A motorhomes. This class of motorhome is larger and outfitted with nearly any amenity you may need (such as a living room with a sofa, a dining table, a complete kitchen, etc.). This class of motorhome is usually larger and is ideal for extended travel with numerous individuals.
  • Class B motorhomes. This class of motorhome is usually referred to as a “campervan.” Depending on the Class B motorhome you hire, you may have a small kitchen, television, and a compact bathroom available. This type of motorhome is ideal for two adults.
  • Class C motorhomes: Class C motorhomes are easier to drive than a Class A motorhome, making it an ideal choice for new motorhome drivers. This class of motorhome also comes with many comforts and amenities.


If you have not driven a motorhome before, make sure you take the make and model of the RV out for a test drive prior to taking off on your next journey. Make sure you and all other drivers will feel comfortable driving the vehicle prior to hiring it.


How Can You Fit Everything In a Motorhome When You Travel?

As a general rule of thumb, you never need as much as you pack. Today's motorhomes are outfitted with numerous shelving units, cabinets, and other areas where items can be easily stowed away and accessed when needed. To make packing easier and lighter, here are a few tips:


  • Plan your meals and pack them ahead of time. Freeze what you can and purchase produce on the road to retain its freshness. This will give you more valuable kitchen space.
  • Bring only enough clothing for two to three days. Many items can be worn again, and most RV parks have very affordable laundromats on-site that you can use while traveling.
  • Voracious readers should invest in an e-reader. E-books take up a lot less space than a stack of novels.


Many RV hire companies will have packages you can purchase that include everything you will need, such as cookware, dishes, coffee filters, utensils, and more.


Do I Need Additional Licensing and Insurance?

The answer to this question is: it depends. The first step is to check with your car insurance broker to see whether or not you do have appropriate coverage (the majority of drivers will be able to use their standard insurance and license to hire the motorhome). Most motorhomehire companies will have insurance packages available for an additional charge, if you feel they will be necessary.
