Blackburn Motorhome Hire tips

Have you always dreamed of taking to the open road in a motorhome? At Easicampers Blackburn we have some great tips to make your journey easy and fuss free. If you are a beginner these tips will make your trip much easier and will allow you to enjoy your time on the road without the fuss of trying to work things out by yourself.

  • Give yourself time when you collect your vehicle to go over how all the systems work. We have staff on hand to show you around the vehicle & explain the systems, our staff are also happy to let you video the show round so that you can refer back to it if you need to.
  • Find out how to turn the lights on in the dark! This may seem like a funny thing to say, but if you are on the road and need to get out of bed during the night, or arrive back at your van in the dark, its always handy to know where all the switches are. The main control for the lights will be on the panel above the habitation door.
  • Understand how the electrical system works. You cant get the 230v or use 3 pin plug sockets unless you are hooked up to electric mains. If this is an essential thing you want to do on your trip, you will need to make sure that any campsites you book have the electric stand at your pitch. If you want to wild camp you need to be aware that anything you want to use that has a plug will not work as you dont have the facility to do so.
  • Gas bottles- The gas will power the heating, hot water, fridge and cooking facilities if you dont have the electric hook up, so its important to decide if you want 1 or 2 bottles of gas. I personally would recommend if you plan to wild camp & you are hiring the vehicle for more than 5 days, ask for 2 bottles. You really don’t want to be enjoying your holiday in the highlands and run out of gas. It’s always better to have too much than not enough.
  • Pack light- Don’t overpack for your first trip, you need to remember you don’t have full wardrobes in the motorhome, and some of the motorhomes we have are smaller than others, so storing lots of clothes or other items is not always an option. If you are unsure of how much space you have, ask the question when booking or ask to look at the vehicle you want to book so that you know what storage space you have in the vehicle.
  • Switch your fridge on at home if you plan to travel the day after you collect your vehicle. If you have the option to plug the vehicle in at home, you can leave your fridge switched on over night so that it is at a good temperature before you travel, this will also not use the gas in the vehicle. You could then pack the fridge the morning you plan to leave.
  • Make sure you know where the fuel tank & water tank is. It can be a very costly mistake to make if you accidentally put fuel in the water tank. The fuel will damage the water pump and the water tank. If you do put fuel in the water tank, stop as soon as you realise and inform us, we can advise you on the best course of action. Your water tank can usually be found about half way down the side of the vehicle, where as the fuel tank is usually on the front part of the vehicle near the passenger door. If you are unsure, please ask before you leave.
  • Check the height of the vehicle. This can be found on our website and we will usually give you a print off of the height, weight & length of your vehicle, however, make sure you check before you leave as it’s your responsibility to ensure that you don’t hit any low bridges or barriers in your vehicle as we do not cover this on our insurance.

Its always good to know the vehicle you are travelling in and the tips above are just a few. At Easicampers in Blackburn we have lots of ideas and tips to help you enjoy your trip. Please get in touch with us on 01254 495999 and we will be happy to help with your trip and get a quote together.

We provide a whole variety of activities onsite and as a result you can see this beautiful venue from a different point of view!

National Railway museum
If you want a break from diesel vehicles, you can pop over to York and explore the National Railway Museum. The museum displays a collection of over 100 locomotives and nearly 250 other items of rolling stock. Virtually all of which either ran on the railways of Great Britain or were built there. It’s the largest museum of it’s kind in the UK, and therefore a must see for any locomotive fan. Whether you’re visiting from afar or live locally, the NRM (National Railway Museum) is one of great place in Yorks Dale,

The Dalesbridge

Campers will pitch up in a set of well drained camping fields – level and large enough to fit a total of over 150 pitches, plus their cars. If you need an electric supply, you’ll be easily hooked-up here and there are a number of hardstanding pitches for tourers with outstanding views.


Markeaton Park
Markeaton Park is Derby’s most visited park and is one of the most popular attractions in the East Midlands. The park has many features that mark this history: , historic lost roads, the 18th century park and buildings and the remains of a Second World War army camp. It offers a place to escape from day to day living and city life and experience a little bit of countryside on Derby’s doorstep.

Electric Vans

Advantages of electric vans

  • Popularity

The infrastructure of electric vehicles is growing rapidly. In UK, there are more than 4800 charging locations that provide more than 7500 charging points for individuals. This infrastructure is growing to meet the increasing numbers of electric vans. One day, petrol-based vans will be the minority and other electric vans will outstand in the community.

  • Performance

When electric vehicles where first produced, they were nowhere near the stranded that they are today. Now, you will find many vehicles with fast acceleration that reaches 60 mph in few seconds. Electric-based vehicles also provide smoother driving experience with little noise.

  • Low maintenance

All  petrol and diesel vans have  hundreds of moving parts that go wrong regularly and this can end up been very expensive .whereas  electric vans have a lot less parts that can break. So, electric vans will require less maintenance costs than conventional vans.

Winter Motorhome Hire

Lots of people are looking to have a short break away in a motorhome or campervan over the winter months. With people having holidays cancelled, plans being cancelled due to the Covid restrictions, it’s one way to have a holiday and some valuable family time. Some people are put off by the thought of being cold or weather issues, however, the motorhomes if they are used correctly are really toasty warm. We have put some things together that should be a must when considering which campsites to use, these handy tips will allow your trip to be as fuss free as possible.

What to consider when looking for a campsite over winter:

The main thing that you should consider about the pitch in winter is checking that it is hardstanding. The reason for this is that when pitching up on a hardstanding pitch, the ground is much sturdier than on a grass pitch. This will prevent you from becoming stuck in a muddy puddle!

Another really good tip is to check that the site has electric hook up. This is great to have in winter, even though the heating & hot water will work on both gas & electric, it will be used much more over the winter months than in summer. With electric hook up it is a lot more cost effective, this way you can leave the heating & hot water on overnight. If you are going to run off gas only, you should make sure that you have at least one spare bottle in case you run out.

It is important that you know exactly how your motorhome works and if there are dump valves & how to isolate them. Most of the motorhomes or campervans have an automatic frost control valve that will automatically dump any water at low temperatures. This prevents water from freezing in pipes. This is a really good reason to have your heating on low whilst using the electric hook up. This would allow your vehicle to stay at a temperature where the dump valve will not be activated. Spend some time with the representative from easicampers that shows you around the vehicle & ask about trips they may have had in the motorhome, the staff are all very knowledgeable about the vehicles & will have used them at some point to get to know them better.

The larger motorhomes are self-contained and have showers & toilets on board so that you don’t have to nip to the shared facilities on sites, however, due to restrictions, you will find that many of the facilities (showers & toilets) may not be available in the current restrictions. If you plan to hire a VW California, it would be advisable to check the sites you are planning on visiting have facilities open. If they are not available you may want to add on one of the porta potties that can fit easily in the back of the vehicle.

You will also need to make sure that you pack appropriate clothing for your trip. If you are planning on taking a pet with you and having long winter walks, you should consider taking plenty of warm clothing and good dry footwear, also consider what items you will need to take along for your pet, for example blankets or wash items.

There are some really fantastic landscapes around the UK and there are campsites that open all year round so you will have plenty to choose from when hiring your easicamper from us.

Festival Camping in a Motorhome

What  you need to know, about festival camping in a motorhome?

You will have to buy a separate motorhome ticket in addition to your festival tickets.
Everyone staying in your motorhome will require a festival ticket.
In some instances it is allowable to park a car next to the motorhome.
Once settled in your designated  space you will probably be required to remain there until the end of the festival.
You will not have access to an electric hook up but your motorhome rental will run on the leisure battery and gas for all of its amenities (hot water, shower, fridge, cooker, heating, lighting) with the exception of the 240V plug sockets (remember to pack a car phone charger) Turning over the engine each morning will keep the leisure battery topped up throughout your stay. This is important as generators are usually not allowed.

Motorhome Try before you Buy

Have you ever thought about owning your own motor home. Being able to travel the UK and beyond staying in the most romantic and remote parts of the world.

If you’ve never driven a motor home then here in Wigan we advise all potential buyer’s to rent one for a few days or at least a week to give you the idea of what it’s like to own one.

We always suggest a rental of a motorhome before taking the plunge to buy one, these aren’t cheap and cheerful and take a lot of care and attention to maintain and look after.

We have had numerous customers rent from Wigan taking them to Scotland’s Highland’s and Islands to test the water, then after a few hire’s they’ve taken the plunge and purchased a motorhome then gone on to travel Europe in them. 

Quite a popular route is the NC500 this route is a famous road trip round the Northern coast of Scotland you choose if you go East to West or vice- versa. Whichever way you go the views in your motorhome are amazing(so we’ve been told).

Motorhome size is also a good factor for which one to purchase. We hire 2 berth up to 6 berth motor homes there may only be 2 of you but you want space to lounge and watch the day go by if this is the case why not try a 4 berth with extra sofa space and storage for those weeks away.

For more information on renting before you buy contact us here in Wigan on 01942 778899 or visit
