Toying with the idea of tugging,your thoughts please
makes you go blind, or so i was told
So does dogging.... So I am told ...good info saves going out at night . Haha
I guess you are talking about towing a caravan, nothing wrong with towing I quite enjoyed it. Caravans are a different way of doing essentially the same thing as we do in a motorhome. You have more option of where to stop with a MH but you have a car on hand to get you places if you have a caravan.
Caravans are a bit more work setting up and then getting packed away and hitched up.
Personal choice, we changed from a caravan and won't be going back anytime soon.
Would never go back to it.
Watching folk set up now from the MH, which is ready in 2 mins
makes me cringe.
Park up, maybe plug in, open fridge, which leads to opening a can or bottle. JOB DONE, now watch the tubers for an hour or so.
We've never had a caravan, but our neighbour has & watching him led us to buy our M.H.
Went from a 33ft american rv to a 24ft twin axle caravan.
No where near as much room and towing fuel consumption cost is about the same as the RV but no real regrets.
Also save over £800pa on tax and insurance.
ive been caravaning on and off for about 20 years, it was the setting up in downpours that made me change to a MH,sure there are advantages with both set ups but i thought id give motorhomes ago
If you like to go to one place for a week at a time caravan if you like to move evey day or two motorhome
Horses for coursers ,Tugging makes more sense to me than towing a car. You don't have to plan your journey much with a camper/motorhome. Tugged for years but enjoy motorhome much more. BUSBY.
No problem with towing a caravan if that suits you, quite a lot of people with motor homes end up towing cars anyway so not much difference. As far as setting up is concerned I have seen people with motor homes take far longer that someone with a caravan. We have done both over the last 40 years so just do what suits you at the time.
After tugging and getting a MH I have tried towing a small car, carrying a scooter, gave up both and bought an electric bike, best thing I have bought after the motorhome.
Just could not see myself going back to a caravan.
We chose a motorhome rather than a caravan because neither of us has either towed and neither of us fancied doing so. We wouldn't change voluntarily but if it were a case of needing a car whilst away we would definitely consider a caravan rather than give up or towing a car behind the MH.
And if you are in need of a car ,just hire one as long as wanted . .. Simples . !!
Both let you enjoy the great outdoors,as said above in previous posts,we have C/v-m/h-c/v-M/home again now. I have been on sites with a C/v and enjoyed the company of M/h's and we have been in the m/h and had a great time with C/vanners.
We are lucky in one respect,we have enough room here to have both,if we had a c/v again,but i need a bit more cash........ ARE YOU LISTENING CAMELOT? LOTTO ? HINT!! LOL
Yes, that is another alternative that has become more readily available in recent years
Its what I did in North Wales last year ..had motorhome at a site at lake Bala and hired a car to tour the mountains ,castles etc ..cant remember how much it cost but wasn't much as only had a little punto.....
being serious for a minute, I have got both a motorhome and a caravan currently. we have camped in both types of accommodation and others for many years. also buy and sell motorhomes and caravans occasionally too.
anyone want to buy a 2008 compass rallye 650 twin axle?
WE have a Fifth Wheel best of both worlds car on site and built in water and waste tanks
As said before Caravans are for holidays Motorhomes are a way of life.
