Whats the difference between a motorhome and a motor caravan? any comments pse
Errrr nowt. :Rofl1:
Just FGS dont call it a Caravanette!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHH:Angry:
None, motorhome, motorcaravan, campervan , caravanette Rv all the same concept, we call ours the shed.:thumb::thumb:Snob value I guess comes in to the equassion.
:Cool: Nada :Rofl1:
Don't know why but ours is always known as the pram:BigGrin: has been for years
Say "camping-cars" and it will be more definite :Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Off course there's a difference
:thumb:Well, i recon they are both of the same:Blush:
must be talking about my workmate, phil.
calls mine a caravanette 'cos he knows it winds me up and one day he'll have a screwdriver hangin' out his neck:Angry::BigGrin:
I like the French term "Camping Car", got a nice ring to it.
Yeah mines a camping car!!:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:
Mine's just the van. :Cool:
here going cheap:Rofl1::Rofl1:
I reckon a coachbuilt or A class is a motorhome.
An RV is....... well an RV.
A panel van conversion, Trigano, Auto Sleeper, IH etc etc, is a campervan.
LONG gone i'm affraid!!!!!!!!
almost as bad as 'ice cream van'oh:
In the '70's and '80's the common term was Motor Caravan - the use of Motorhome generically came about during the '90's............
the Aussies and the Kiwi's have always called them Camper vans.........
the Yanks - RV's........... but then they have always had difficulty spelling the English language:Wink:
Like anything else its just a name, expect in them days they were proud to be owners of a caravanette. I think camper vans is a fair description of what it is,doesn't matter which you like they are all basically the samehardhat
Quite like Mobile Tupperware what do you think:Rofl1::Rofl1:hardhathardhathardhat
Don't know why the name winds me up like it does, but when I hear it, for me, it's like someone dragging thier nails down a blackboard, I shudder!!!!!oh:
The American generic name as we all know is Recreational Vehicle (RV) which is anything from a folding trailer tent to an A or C class which they call a motorhome..
my understanding is as follows
Camper van .. a converted panel van, or B class
Motor caravan .. coach built, C or A class
Motor home ... American term for a luxury home on wheels that you can live in, any class.
but they (the yanks) have now muddied the water with C+ and B+ classes oh:
Caravanette .. = to wind up Pappa and Zazkar :Laughing:
or yes.. and
Dormobile .. Manufacturer of camper vans .. at one time used as a generic name for any camper van..
does it really matter:thumb:
long as the caravan aint in front of you oh::Blush:
