Hi. After camping and then owning a caravan for a couple of years we are thinking of buying a motorhome. Neither hubby or I enjoy the hitching up, steadies, etc of the caravan and find it quite hard work. We have fairly young kids who we want to enjoy the freedom of camping and we have our own business and find it hard to get away so we are looking to make things as easy as possible. We are planning to hire a MH for a weekend before we buy but what I'd like to know is the following: Are they really easier than a caravan - do you just drive, park up and that's it or is there more to it? And what about leaving site? Is it a pain to pack everything up every time you move off to another location? Presumably, you just get stuff out as you use it so it's not like unpacking a caravan and getting settled. Our caravan is stored elsewhere, as will be MH, but I currently have to take a boot load of stuff down before we go, then spend time getting it all stacked, then unpack it at the site, then pack it all up to go home. I was thinking with the MH we could park on the drive the day before, load it up and then drive off. Obviously, it depends on the size of the MH but how limiting are they - hubby is convinced we won't be able to get about. We are thinking of 7m ish overcab (Chausson Flash 3 plus is what I'm planning to hire) or similar. Are height barriers widespread? Till confident we would probably use some bigger campsites but really we like quiet sites. Thought we could go to Scotland for a fortnight next year and partly wild camp. But, what about waste from the loo? It seems to me that most MH have cassette loos like the caravan - is this correct? If so, with two kids, we'd have to stop daily at sites as it needs emptying daily. Do only the big RVs have black tanks? If you have a cassette loo, does it leak when you drive. We empty the caravan's one before leaving site but presumably one plus of the MH is that you have all your facilities with you all the time. MH wise, I'm after fixed bunks for the kids and fixed bed for us - overcab is fine. Looking at Chausson and a few others, all have similar layouts. Any advice on these? Planning to hire from Landcruise in Chichester - any good anyone? Have read some great advice in the other newbie threads and would appreciate some help. Sorry if the questions are daft!
